What other Motorcycle Clubs are the IOMC affiliated with?
The IOMC is not affiliatedwith nor are we a support club to any other Motorcycle Club. We respect all clubs and we have great relations with other clubs who accept our law abiding values. We support our own brothers and are way too busy with our own events and activities to be involved with any other club or association. To those who are looking for some kind of conspiracy or secret alliance with other clubs, there is none.
How many members do you have?
More than one and less than a million.
How many chapters do you have?
They are all linked to our International website, check them out on our chapters page.
Can women join the IOMC?
The IOMC is a very traditional motorcycle club that follows the same traditions set by motorcycle clubs in the 50's and early 60's. Therefore we are a men's club. However, we do have a women's support group, the Iron Order Maidens. You can check them out at their website link on our International Website atwww.ironordermc.com.
Are you bad asses?
We all have asses, some bigger than others. We are family men, we work hard, we play hard, we ride hard, and take care of our brothers. No time for school yard games.
Are you guys for real?
We are what we say we are, nothing more and nothing less.
I heard you guys are posers and not a real MC, is that true?
It depends on who you ask. We have all posed for pictures. You ask if we are not a real MC. We are a motorcycle club to every definition and qualification. If you mean are we involved in illegal activities that will put our members and club at risk then the answer is no. If you mean do we disrespect the law and rights of others the answer is no. But if you are asking if we're a real MC then the answer is on our backs, read it.
If you guys are law abiding and have law enforcement in your club then why do you wear a three piece patch like an outlaw motorcycle club?
We abide by the same traditions of motorcycle clubs in the 1950's and 60's who were social outcasts and non conformists. During this time in MC history the clubs who wore a three piece patch were outside of normal society and free of the restrictions society put on social customs. That means they partied their asses off and shocked the world with the new found freedom of being themselves which in turn caused them to band together in a very special brotherhood. Today the IOMC is a true outcast club with a very strong brotherhood since we are by ourselves. We do not conform to the protocols that are illegal and infringe on the rights of others. We are not welcome by many clubs because of our stand on many issues. We accept our position in the biker world of being our own organization truly free of anyone's rules but our own. We are independent and remain totally out of all other clubs and organization's business. For all these reasons we wear a three piece patch.
Why do you guys wear a state rocker?
The founders of the club had to decide on the design of our colors. We were in Louisville, Kentucky. We asked if we should fly a city rocker and we were told that was claiming territory which our club will never do. We asked if we should fly a county rocker and we were told the same thing. We asked if we should fly a region like Northern Kentucky and again it was a screwy answer. Finally we asked for a suggestion as to what we should fly and we were told "Brotherhood". Well we don't live in the town of "Brotherhood". We decided on the state rocker since we do not claim territory and it made sense to us that the state would not designate a territory.
Who can join the Iron Order?
If you are male, 18 years of age, law abiding with no felony convictions, have a cruiser style motorcycle more than 650cc, and a strong desire to do something good for your community while at the same time helping build a true national brotherhood of like minded individuals.... then you MIGHT be IOMC material.
Do I have to be a Probate or Prospect for the IOMC?
Yes. We're all grown men. This isn't a schoolyard and we're no bullies. You will, however, earn our trust, respect, and the right to wear our patch. There is a hang around period when you will learn about us and we will learn about you. There is a Probate or Prospect period (the name changes depending on what part of the world you are from) during which you will prove your desire to wear our cut and your commitment to our values and brotherhood.
How do I find out more information?
Scour our website, go to all the chapter links and look at the other IOMC sites. Find one near you and talk to them. If you see an IOMC brother out somewhere, introduce yourself and go from there.
