Rockport Indiana Chapter
Three Basic Rules
The Older Bikers Riding Club is a motorcycle riding club for older bikers that LOVE to ride their bikes and want to enjoy their remaining years as much as possible.
We have some members that got back into riding after their children grew up and left home, other members that "used" to be patch holders in weekend MC's or 1% MC's and women that just started riding. The common bond we all have is that we love riding and want to spend as much time riding as possible, while our health allows us to.
It's all about riding, going to rallies and friendships. We don't ride from bar to bar. Our policy is that we never drink and ride. We save the drinking for rallies where our bikes are parked for the night.
As old school bikers, we promote the enjoyment of riding motorcycles, brotherhood, family responsibility, and respect for others as well as for ourselves. We do require that every chapter has at least ONE experienced old school biker, preferably an ex-patch holder that can help educate the newer riders on proper riding techniques as well as acceptable policies when dealing with current patch holders from MC's they meet at rallies and other motorcycle events.
Our goal is to gain the respect of citizens as well as other bikers, not only because of our age and wisdom, but also because of our respect for them.
We do NOT charge a membership fee or annual dues in order to join our club, however in order to ride with us, we do have THREE basic rules.1: You must ride a motorcycle or trike. When we say ride, we are looking for people that are out riding every week during the summer, traveling to rallies, bike nights, poker runs and using any other excuse they can find to ride. 2: No drinking while riding. We do NOT stop at bars when we are out riding. You can drink as much as you want when you arrive at a rally or get home, but we do not allow drinking while riding with us. 3: NEVER abandon another biker. If we see another biker on the side of the road, we always stop to help and never leave another biker sitting alone. Keep in mind that we are not an Internet club or Association, therefore we do not hand out a club patch to just anyone. While we are a riding club instead of a motorcycle club, we are still particular about the quality of people that represent us, therefore before a new member can obtain a back patch, he/she MUST belong to a local chapter and meet with, ride with and/or attend a rally with an existing "old school" or charter member of our club. Basically, that means Nomad members that live in areas where we don't currently have chapters, are encouraged to wear t-shirts, caps and small patches that will help promote the name of our club, but only Chapter Members are entitled to wear the large Back Patch.
If these rules are acceptable and you would like to join our riding club, either contact one of our chapter members via facebook or look for one of our full patches members at a bike night or rally where we have an existing chapter.
