BIKERS MC - Volume 2

This second volume ( texts in English and French )  is a logical complement to the first volume. It is not a question of explaining the rules governing the closed environment of the French bikers - MC members, but to understand what leads a simple biker to join an MC. I’ve included 11 interviews with bikers, and 2 women ( wives of  bikers for more than 30 years ) .They explain the ups and downs of their double life often chaotic, the moments of brotherhood, but also the moments of disillusionment .. In this second and last opus, motorcycles are highlighted. Their motorcycles reflect their personality, raw or sophisticated, radical or generous. The photos taken are mostly in black-and-white and were taken at the MC’s Club Houses or at bikers’ festivals like the Hells Week.

Short Extract of Interviews:

« At the age of 13, in class, we had young kids who were kept in school by the system because they did not know what to do with them - real scum… » « We were often smashed, and one day we decided that it was enough and we would fight back and make the shots. »… « We took kick boxing lessons in club, and started to fight like real trouble makers »

***

...«  In my MC, there is no question of cowardice, treason, backstabbing. No room for the one who thinks he is the Caliph, who does not keep his word, who is attracted by the lure of profit, who covets his brother’s girlfriend and puts the club in danger. I fired a lot of brothers.. »

Short Extract of Interviews:

«  ...You're a member of the community if you ride a Harley (it's a must). In our Club, there is no prospect, follower, hangaround, probation period, full patch. You wear the colors of your community with pride. » »

***

« We do not claim any territory, because the World belongs to us. We feel at home everywhere. »…

Short Extract of Interviews:

«  I grew up in a rotten neighborhood. My mother raised her 5 boys by the strap of her belt. My father was the only one working in a factory ... he was not funny, we grew up the hard way, home was the school of hard knocks, with the motto - « Values and respect » ... except for cops. »…

***

…  « I chose a way of life that many MC members would not be able to live. It also cost me a divorce… »… « I work hard every day, but I owe nothing to the government I'm a one percenter »

Short Extract of Interviews:

"I didn’t have a happy childhood, or unhappy, I just did not know what limits mean, and when you are always borderline, that's when everything goes bad » .... "I do not regret any error, no act, I have always kept a stiff upper lip and I have always assumed my acts even the most reprehensible »  ...
 « I was president of Club and MC for 24 years, I had to make radical decisions to safeguard the club »

Short Extract of Interviews:

« I am the wife of a biker for over 30 years, and an MC president ’s wife. »
« Being a biker's wife is above all LONELINESS » ...

***

..« I know that some clubs have accepted that their wives gather to ride together. Some say they are asked their point of view about decisions for the club » ..,  but if so, it's for buying tranquility, because they do not listen ... Women are not fooled »….
