Wearing a back patch in the US

As you guys know, our trip to the USA comes closer and closer in time

Do we run into problems in the USA if we wear our vests with Club logo on the back site of the vest??? Problems with the police or even with other MC`s????????

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

I don't think you will have too much trouble. Your patches aren't gang related and will probably generate more interest than problems. Have a great trip!

Ride Safe,

Bob

You won't have an issue with that patch - The 1%er's get up tight about guys wearing a lower rocker with the name of your territory on it -

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

No issue other than generating a lot of attention. That will depend upon what part of the country you are in. down in the southern part of the states you will get a lot of, well doggy you from where?

You may if you meet an investment banker who gambled his clients money on the Euro increasing in value.

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

Thanks so far guys

Simon: guess I will be one of the guys who will gamble on the Euro increase. Will make our trip a lot cheaper

Just joking

I knew you were planning a trip here, but I haven't been paying much attention to your tour Sorry! Do you have a route layed out yet; If you all are coming near any of us, it may be a great chance to hang out!

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

Rudy, I will leave a few postings on the "State Sections" in a couple of weeks or so. It would be great to meet many of you guys along our trip!!!! Where do you live Rudy?

Simon: I gamble and will wait until the the euro jumps again over 1.40 compare to the USD. but when I see a significant sign that the exchange rate will dropp down under 1,30, I will react - for sure.

No quick action needed yet Just my two cents

I'm in Santa Fe, New Mexico; high dessert, nestled up against the Sangre de Cristo mountains (part of the Rockies). We have some great rides around here, and awesome culture and food! Check us out at http://santafe.org/Visiting_Santa_Fe/index.html

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

Rudy, it is a pity. Originally our trip was planned from Houston heading West but we changed our planning due to the reason that my bike is located in Oregon. On our previous planning was also Santa Fe on the list. I`ve been there three times before. A beautifull place. I do like Santa Fe a lot. I remember a place somewhere located at the Plaza where you can order many different types of Magarita Well and I do like the food in that area. Hmmm - just delicious

We will start from Vancouver, down to Las Vegas - further we gonna visit all the National Parks like Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, going up to the Rockies, further to the Black Hills and then go back West to Vancouver. Just a rough description for you.

But you can meet us somewhere in Durango - not that far away from you - if I remember right.

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

Well, keep me posted - shoot me a PM or email me - and let me know what your schedule is going to be for Durango; it's not far at all from me, plus it's a nice drive up there! Would love to hang out.

+1 , especially since your rockers are attached to your main patch.

Have a safe trip.

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

I would worry more about the time of the year than the value of the dollar, If you try to do this tour now through March, it will be a little chilly, our weather pattern has changed back to more of a normal one and in Colorado you really cannot get across lots of passes until June. Come and have fun, there is a lot to see here.......Kieth

Re: Wearing a back patch in the US

You will be fine "flying" your patch, Rudy. Since you're not a rival gang, neither the Vagos or HA will pay you any mind.
