Always ask to take a photograph of a club member and/or of their bikes. If granted permission (and you usually will, providing you asked first) NEVER take a picture of the license plate area.
In the event you do start taking pictures of a “biker” on the road, do not be offended if he “flips you the bird” or gives you the “solo finger salute” as this is actually a common friendly gesture in the biker world.
MC members understand the meaning and importance of respect. They demand it for themselves and their club brothers. They provide it to patch holders outside of their own club until given a reason to do otherwise. Regardless of what’s on your back, or how you got it, it is of the utmost importance to show an appropriate degree of respect to those who earned their colors in the old-school tradition.
