1DOWN Motorcycle Club would like to say Thank you for taking the time to look us up and learn a little bit about us first hand, from our own words. We are a 111% legit law abiding motorcycle club. What we mean by that is we give more than 100% to make sure all of our members live a trouble free lifestyle. We take pride in helping each other, teaching each other, and being there for each other. We are a Brotherhood, and with that, we’ve created a family.
My name is Goldie DeWitt and I am the President/Founder of 1DOWN MC and I would like to take a moment to touch on something that just might have sparked the reason you looked us up, or stumbled across us. Due to a couple of recent television shows such as Sons of Anarchy & Devils Ride, the motorcycle club lifestyle has been looked at as something menacing.
I would like to help ease your thoughts of what you seen on TV by telling you what you see on TV is inflated and exaggerated, and most of all it’s pure entertainment. What you see on TV is all staged, paid actors, making up fake situations about the motorcycle club life to grab your attention and sell you on a product. That product is the show. Unfortunately the creators of the show don’t have any direct involvement with the real motorcycle club lifestyle, because if they did, they would know how much of a bad picture the show is casting on real life motorcycle clubs. The creators know this, but their objective is to make money, not protect the real motorcycle club lifestyle.
Yes, some real life motorcycle clubs have had trouble in the past, and those same clubs have come a very long way in cleaning the act up and doing a lot of positive helpful things for communities around the world. A motorcycle club is NOT a Gang. A motorcycle club is exactly that, a Motorcycle Club. A group of men that share the same interest in riding motorcycles and coming together to fellowship in brotherhood. So, please take it from me Goldie DeWitt and let me tell you that calling someone in a motorcycle club a motorcycle gang is like calling a black man a nigger, or a white man a honky, or a mexican man a wetback. It is very disrespectful and very foul. Some people do it because they just didn’t know any better. Well, now you do, and as you can see, I just taught you something and this is what we do for each other in our club. We teach each other, we help each other, we educate each other. We help men become better men.
So, the next time you see someone from 1DOWN MC, don’t hesitate, smile and say hello, cause we look forward to giving you the same love & respect right back.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. From 1DOWN MC & myself, we wish you a very blessed 2014.
