GOT RAN OFF THE ROAD BY THE HELLS ANGELS-Do the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club Approve of this?
I first saw this video posted on Black Dragon TV’s YouTube Channel. After doing the story on Insane Throttle Biker News Channel I went and got the link to share at the bottom of this article. I encouraged everyone to go take a look at the video. I especially want to hear all the excuses people will give as to why they feel it was right for someone to do such a thing.
Visit the #1 Biker News Channel on YouTube and get straight up commentary from James “Hollywood” Macecari on what’s happening in the biker scene
Let’s put it this way without sugar coating it. There was another biker trying to kick another motorcyclist off his bike. I didn’t see if the other person was a Hells Angels or not, it is being reported as being the case. This is why I ask the Hells Angels if they agreed with what happens in the video. If it was one of their members or prospects, it would be a huge slight against the rest of the biker community.
Motorcycle Accident Fatalities
It’s bad enough that over 5,000 motorcyclists die each year with many more injured. But to watch a video such as this, where a fellow motorcyclist tries to kick you off your bike is shocking. Bikers and motorcyclists face enough danger just jumping on a motorcycle. Why should they have to worry about someone that is supposed to know better, kicking them off their bike?
A motorcyclist has a 1-770 odds of dying in a motorcycle accident over their life times. What I personally saw in this video was nothing short of disgusting.
Why People Are Starting To Turn on The Motorcycle Community.
Again, I cannot personally see if this was a member of the Hells Angels. I can only go off what the person in the video says. But if indeed it was a motorcycle club, this kind of disregard for anyone else’s life is exactly why people don’t support clubs.
My previous article titled, “The Age of the Motorcycle Club is coming to an end, most bikers don’t support them” I talked about some of the reasons why people have stopped supporting clubs. The one thing I didn’t add to that list was someone trying to kick someone off their bike.
I have a simple question for all members of motorcycle clubs. Do you approve of someone trying to kick someone else off their bike? This is a very simple question, one that could be answered with a yes or no. Please, don’t give me any shit about this guy being mistaken as a rival club member. Let’s be honest, even that angle doesn’t jive.
I believe the one thing that is killing the motorcycle club scene is it’s supporters. Motorcycle Clubs have gone on the internet selling their gear to whomever will buy it. Problem with that is the club doesn’t know who is running around with their shit on causing problems. This could be the case in this video. Clubs, especially ones of the larger following, have supporters actually causing shit on behalf of the club. Well, this is how they represent their actions and words anyways. I doubt most clubs would tolerate people acting on their behalf, at least I hope not.
What has happened to honor in this lifestyle?
This video demonstrates just how lost many are in the scene. If this guy ended up crashing his motorcycle and dying, it wouldn’t have been honorable in any way. Sure, you have supporters spilling their bullshit rah rah crap all over. I wonder how the parents of this guy would’ve felt when the cops came to the door telling them their son was dead. With what is coming out of these supporters of clubs, It wouldn’t have mattered much to them. Well, until it was them the next time around.
I’m often asked why I write and cover biker news. My first answer is, “Someone has to do it!” My second answer is. “I see a lifestyle I loved all my life going down the tubes.” My first priority was to try and give both sides the opportunity to present their side of the story. I did this no matter what kind of negativity came my way.
Over the years of doing this I’ve seen the word “Honor,” treated just like the word “Brother.” It doesn’t hold the meaning it once did. I think it started to go down hill when men of society at large forgot what it meant to be an honorable person. When that happened, those same people without honor started joining in the scene. The rest is history.
Brotherhood and Honor in a club context
One of my final thoughts is to ask , if indeed this was a club, “Did you do the right thing and discipline this guy who tried to kick this guy off the bike?” If not, I don’t see any honor in you. Patch or no patch, what happened here was nonsense! Everyone with a half a brain can agree on that. This is the kind of action that turns other bikers and the general public against clubs. You may care or you may not, just remember that decision when it comes time for those same people to help you out with profiling. Oh yes, profiling! Something that is a huge topic right now, one I actually believe in. But where will your support for the issue be when you turn everyone off of clubs? Interesting question isn’t it? Most will tell you to deal with what you created through your actions.
I recently did a video “There is no such thing as LLH&R when leaving a motorcycle club.” One of the main arguments pertains to a guy who put 15 years into a club, losing his family in the process. When he finally left the club on good terms, his supposed club brothers turned their backs on him. They acted like he was never a member. Is that brotherhood? Is that honor? I put this in this article because I believe that this is something that is defining members of clubs now. Everyone is cool as long as they wear a patch, but when someone can’t do it any longer they no longer matter. I guess that’s what the dude was thinking when he tried kicking this guy off his bike, “he didn’t matter!”
