Just a personal view, no offense intended, but maybe you should've introduced yourself first, got the feel for the place a couple days, and THEN ask your question.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

You could ask one, but he would say "I can't help you with that" Maybe if you hang around for a year or two, you might be allowed to hear some history.
If you meet em you will find some of them the best people on earth you will be lucky to have them in your life and you will want to earn their respect and hope to call them friend, some of them you will be glad you can tell them you know the first ones mentioned, and it is time to leave

"The Sundowners Motorcycle Club of San Fernando Valley was formed in the early 1960s by a group of motorcycle riders that found a common bond of brotherhood in the freedom of the road. In 1971 they acquired a clubhouse located in San Fernando. In 1974 the Sundowners Motorcycle Club SFV and the Humpers Motorcycle Club of San Fernando formed a Brotherhood."

Jesus, what the hell is wrong with people? The guy asks a simple question and he gets a rash from some of the secret sorority members. Lighten up Francis.

azjohns, sorry I can't give you any info about what you're asking. Maybe someone else will chime in with some useful insights.

Please don['t take any of that disrespect personally. They do that frequently. There are some frequent posters here who seem to have a monster size chip on their shoulders and take it out on whoever they can. This may be no different than what you find on a number of other Internet forums, but it is something those who check in here have to deal with regularly.

Thank you for your service to our country.

Dude take this however, I am a Dad and Grand Dad. For whatever reason your Father does not want to talk about the past, that is His thing, for now.
It takes a while for a Man to Man, talk with a Son. I will never tell my Son All and Everything. Over the years I have shared a bit, the good ,the bad. No other Man knows what I know or You know, we are enigmas.
Who and whatever your Father was then has made him the Man he is today. Talk to your Father, his words are the only truth you will ever know.
Now about the BS, FKM. This is a forum, not real life, one on one most of these guys would probably be cool. You know there is always a punk, not worth your time.
Good Luck, get your ass home and stay straight. Peace

Welcome aboard and most of all THANK YOU!! for your service.

Hope you find the answers you are looking for. You got to sift through the answers here and ignore some. This site does offer great technical advice. You ride a bike?

No problem, you were in your right.

They deserved it.

Thanks for your service and come home safe and proud.

I suggest when you get home, take your dad out for a beer and ask him about it or then why he doesn't want to talk to you about it. He may have his reasons.
