Q. Tell us about HAWG DIVAS MC…
A. Hawg Divas is the first all Female motorcycle club that established in Los Angeles, CA in or around about 1999 by Brown T. Sugar, MoShuga and two other member that are now members of another motorcycle club in. They had a club house in Long Beach California. Hawg Divas was the first female motorcycle club that started the crystallized helmet as apart of their HAWG DIVA uniform.
Hawg Divas has only one chapter; we are about quality not quantity. The club was started because Brown T. Sugar had been riding along side a man for over a decade when she realized that when riding with men they are so egoistic, arrogant and cocky. They try to test your ability on how you can handle the speed and control of the bike, so they would try to leave you behind trying to gain speed to keep up with them. For instance, her first husband didn’t believe she could keep up with him. So he calls himself trying to test her ability to ride her bike. One day, they stop at a red light. Suddenly when the light turns green, he speeds off thinking he is going to leave her behind. Little did he know she was right behind him, almost about to pass him right up. After that, she knew that any woman can ride just as good as a man, and even better. One day she woke up with a vision to start an ALL Female Motorcycle Club, which would allow women to ride with class, elegance, grace and dignity as well as bringing a DIVA touch to it with the crystallized helmets and vest. In this vision along with her peers, Hawg Divas has been around for over a decade now, and are well known and respected on the MC sets.
