Having been around these guys for a long time. If you’re smart, have any common sense and have just plain ol manners. you learn these things pretty quick. If you don’t, well you could be the new douchy douch or worse.
I have seen both men and women make these mistakes. So here are a few rules in case that you ever bump into this fun-loving kind of crowd.
1) Never ever touch a mans “cut”.
What is a “Cut” ? Briefly, if he is wearing a vest, regardless of the material, and it has 3 patches on the back, The club colors. It would be wise to not touch him for a plethora of reasons. But let me give you just one. It’s friggin RUDE, and this should be applied to anyone that you do not know.
There is no gender rule here either. If you are a female the rule still applies, if you’re a cute, the rule still applies, No, you are not special. And especially if you are a female it would be a bad idea, his chick could be close by and you do not want to mess with her either… Just sayin’
2) Never ask if you can “sit on his/her motorcycle”.
Personally I don’t mind if some mom wants a picture of her little one on the bike. But girl, you are not going to sit on my mans bike for a photo-op. Not just No…, Hell no…. So just don’t ask. A motorcycle is not like a car and there is an intimacy to a bike that is not generally shared with outsiders.
3) Don’t ask a biker to “give you a ride”.
Again it is rude. You have no idea if he is married or has a girlfriend. If there’s a back seat he probably is/ does. If he offers, well that is another story, but only if he is single or you have her permission. Frankly even with ‘her’ permission, I would never ever get on a mans bike unless it was an emergency, and never get on a bike with someone you do not know. PERIOD.
So those are my top three no no’s and my best advise. What is your biggest pet peeve as a biker or as the pillion?
