The Biker’s Creed

I ride because it is fun.

I ride because I enjoy the freedom I feel from being exposed to the elements, and the vulnerability to the danger that is intrinsic to riding.

I do not ride because it is fashionable to do so.

I ride my machine, not wear it. My machine is not a symbol of status. It exists simply for me and me alone. My machine is not a toy. It is an extension of my being, and I will treat it accordingly, with the same respect as I have for myself.

I strive to understand the inner-workings of my machine, from the most basic to the most complex. I learn everything I can about my machine, so that I am reliant on no one but myself for its health and well being.

I strive to constantly better my skill of control over my machine. I will learn its limits and use my skill to become one with my machine so we may keep each other alive. I am the master, it is the servant. Working together in harmony, we will become an invincible team.

I do not fear death. I will, however, do all possible to avoid death prematurely. Fear is the enemy, not death. Fear on the highway leads to death, therefore I will not let fear be my master. I will master it.

My machines will outlive me. Therefore, they are my legacy. I will care for them for future bikers to cherish as I have cherished them, whoever they may be.

I do not ride to gain attention, respect or fear from those who do NOT ride, nor do I wish to intimidate or annoy them.

For those that do not know me, all I wish from them is to ignore me. For those that desire to know me, I will share with them the truth of myself so that they might understand me and not fear others like me.

I will never be the aggressor. However, should others F@ck with me, their aggression will be dealt with in as sever of a manner as I can cast upon them.

I will show respect to other bikers more experienced or knowledgeable than I am. I will learn from them all I can. However, if my respect is not acknowledged or appreciated, it will end.

I will not show disrespect to other bikers less experienced or knowledgeable than I am.

I will teach them what I can. However, if they show me disrespect, they will be bitch-slapped.

It will be my task to mentor new riders into the lifestyle of a biker, so that the breed shall continue. I shall instruct them, as I have been instructed by those before me. I shall preserve and honor traditions of bikers before me, and will pass them on unaltered.

I will not judge other bikers on their choice of machine, their appearance or their profession. I will judge them only on their conduct as a biker.

I am proud of my accomplishments as a biker, though I will not flaunt them to others. If they ask I will share them.

I will stand ready to help any other bikers that truly need my help.

I will never ask another biker to do for me what I can do for myself.

I am NOT a part-time biker. I am a biker when and where-ever I go. I am proud to be a biker and hide my chosen lifestyle from no one.

I ride because I love freedom, independence and the movement of the ground beneath me. But most of all I ride to better understand myself, my machine, the lands in which I ride and to seek out and know other bikers like myself.
