You said "casual basis." Does this mean you are a hangaround? You are not a prospect or patch holder, that much is clear. I am sure you cannot know
much more about HAMC than anyone else. The discloser of club business to you would not be a very smart thing for someone to do, if they like breathing
The fact is they ARE a criminal organization with a finger in all money making rackets and they exert their control via violence and
This is true of most 1% clubs, nothing new there. As many have stated, however, it depends on the chapter you are talking about.
Independant gangs no longer exist as the HA did a onetime massive patch over in response to the Bandidos expansion. Gangs were given the
choice, us or them. Some local gangs simply dissbanded rather than choose a side and ultimately face violent reprisal from the other side.
Gangs that might appear to be independent are merely "puppet clubs" affiliated with the HA or Bandidos and there job is to do the dirty work and
insulate the parent organization.
This is an outright lie. While it is true that any club must receive the blessing of the dominant club in order to be in a certain area, that does not
mean that they must work for them. They have to show them respect, nothing more. Things like if you go to a rival clubs party, you MUST go to the
dominant clubs party. It's hard to explain how it works without getting into the club's business, and that is not a wise thing to do. What you were
talking about is a support club/organization. While there are many support clubs, there are many more that are not.
So far as Bandidos go, they are still bigger than the HAMC, however it is hard to say by how much. The number of patch holders in the club is
considered club business, kind of like top secret, not to be discussed outside the club. HAMC is still to be respected, however I think many would
agree that Bandidos and Outlaws run things in most areas.
phreak_of_nature and springer, I am sure your intent was not to make HOG out to be a motorcycle club. Not to take anything away from your group, it
just that comparing HOG to any MC, let alone a 1%er, tends to piss the MCs off, and is misleading about the nature of MCs as compared to organizations
and riders groups. Just wanted to make sure everyone knows the only thing HOG and most MCs have in common is vehicle choice.
