What should a woman look for in a Motorcycle Club?
Look for like-minded women that are supportive and share common interests and goals. Hang around them and get to know the members. Do you think they have your back? No club is perfect. But ask yourself, will they be perfect for me?
What does your club look for in a member?
We look for women that can add to the club to help it continue to grow in a positive way. Quality not Quantity.
