Stampede City Crew
Is the IOMC a 1% MC?
No and we never will be.
If you're not a 1% MC then what's up with diamond 8?
We do not wear a 1% diamond. It is a diamond with an 8 in it that is part of our center patch. It is not worn on our cut. It is very prominently displayed on clothing and tattoos. It has been part of our club since day one. It is to commemorate the Original 8 founders, nothing more. The first 8 guys who stood up for the founding principles and values that our club has never changed.
If you guys realy follow the traditions of the MC's from the 50's and 60's then why don't you follow the protocols of those MC's?
Because there were no protocols in the 50's and 60's. In fact there were no protocols in the 70's. All that stuff was invented in the 80's when the Coalition of Clubs and similar organizations were invented. We don't believe in surrendering our rights and liberties to belong to any organization or to be accepted, sanctioned, sponsored, or granted permission by anyone. We follow our own protocols by our own rules and traditions that really follow the original guidelines by the real pioneers of MC's. Some of those original pioneers wear our colors right now so they keep us on track with the true, old school traditions. In other words we do things our own way not anyone else's idea of how things should be done. No offense to any other clubs who choose to comply to those protocols, they do what they believe to be best for their club and we support their right to do so. We simply choose a different path. We mind our own business and stay out of everyone else's business.
What territories do you claim?
None and never will we claim territories. We wear a bottom rocker to tell others where we are from nothing more.
What other MC's are you affiliated with?
The IOMC is not affiliated nor are we a support club to any other Motorcycle Club. We respect all clubs and we have great relations with other clubs who accept our law abiding values. We support our own brothers and seem to be way too busy with our own events and activities to be involved with any other club or association.
Who can join the IOMC?
If you are male, 18 years of age, law abiding, have a cruiser style motorcycle more than 650cc and a strong desire to do something good for your community while at the same time helping build a true international brotherhood of like minded individuals....then you MIGHT be IOMC material. However you need to understand there is no easy road in the MC world. There are many clubs out there. Be sure to check out the MC life in all the other clubs before you come to us because we are not like many other clubs. Take no offense from what you read or hear about the IOMC's position on our rights if you belong to a club that follows those protocols because we accept and respect your decision and right to do so. Joining us means you are joining a unique and tight brotherhood not involved with other clubs.This is not a social club or a Sunday riding club. When a man patches in to the IOMC there are no strangers wearing our colors here, only brothers we have not yet met. This is a truly independent brotherhood and joining is not a decision to be taken lightly. Our path is the toughest path for any motorcycle club and we take great pride in staying the course no matter what. If you do choose to try and join us and you make it, then you are joining the elite, the chosen, the dedicated, It might be the hardest thing you ever do. It will definitely be the hardest thing to stand up for but there is a good reason for that.
Do I have to prospect for the IOMC?
Yes. We're all grown men. This isn't a schoolyard and we're no bullies. You will however earn our trust, respect and the right to wear our patch. There is a hang around period when you will learn about us and we will learn about you. There is a Prospect period. You will prove your desire to wear our cut and your commitment to our values and brotherhood. When you do earn your cut, hang on and hit the throttle hard because it's a hell of a ride with a hell of a brotherhood.
