A deadly fight between rival motorcycle clubs (MC) broke out at the 2016 Colorado Motorcycle Expo. After the dust cleared, and investigations closed, expo organizers were forced to cancel next year’s event. Fears of future violence and safety have not only closed this event, but they have tarnished the reputation of MCs everywhere. However, many clubs aren’t letting this incident stop them from doing good deeds.
What You Didn’t Know About Motorcycle Clubs
A couple of weeks ago, we talked about the Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) and their quest to protect children. These bikers will show up in court for children. They will escort these children to school. They will even stand guard outside a child’s house. BACA will do this all for the sake of helping a child feel safe. Well, BACA isn’t the only MC helping.
The Punishers, a group of bikers made up of law enforcement, EMTs, and military personnel, also came to the call of children in need. When a little girl who loves riding her dirtbike was being bullied at school, her mom called the Punishers. The group of burly, leather clad riders soon motored out and went to meet the young girl. Before they left, the MC had declared her an honorary member, and she was told to think of the other club members as uncles. This special visit was wrapped up with a special ride to school on a genuine motorcycle. The little girl’s mother hopes this will be just what she needs to get over the bullying she is experiencing.
We hear about the negative exploits of motorcycle clubs so often, but the world needs to know that’s not what MCs are about. Community service and helping your neighbor is a deep part of the spirit of riding a motorcycle.
