Hey now don't be bashin my chaps. Keeps my legs warm, but not so much for my butt! Speaking of warm...got me some lectric gloves last night!
Anyway, glad to entertain ya'll. The meeting was actually very good. We had the Wake County Pres. of the Desperado's attend along with one other of his crew. They were very nice guys. They answered everyone's questions and were really quite friendly.
As it turns out NRR's logo was designed with the help of the Desperado's President and was approved. So he was going to go chat with his counterpart out in Johnston County and make sure everything was smoothed out.
One thing I did not realize was that there have been several occasions when these guys are at the local bars and some of the other non-member riders get drunk
and pick fights trying to prove themselves. Well the cops know who the Desperado members are so they will often go after them once the fight has started because they know there are rules about fighting within the club and the members are fined or punished by other means.
Basically what we decided to do was more or less look out for each other. We'll step in if a regular is over harassing a member that we know in an effort to prevent a fight and if any of us have a problem with a member of Desperado's we can contact the Pres and he'll mediate for us.
It was all very civil and by the end of the meeting we had a bunch of folks who'd met some new riders we'd not normally meet and we all exchanged great information.
