True, the made members will most likely laugh it off, it prospects trying to impress that worry me.
Being a DooF, we call ourselves 43%ers, but we keep it low profile so we do not offend anyone.
We our a Registered riding club with the AMA, that usually helps if there is a question.
Having read some books on the so-called Outlaw Bikers, I always got the impression that they were more concerned with non-members trying to pass themselves off as members. So, hopefully, all will be peaceful and calm.
