Lets get this straight, they are the biggest and the most famous motorcycle gang in the world. So how do we become a part of them? Hells Angels Motorcycle Club has 230 chapters in the US and apart from that its spread over 27 other countries, along 6 continents but the sad part is, India is not yet part of it and the reason being, it members typically ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Now that HD (not High Definition but Harley Davidson) is in India, we might be looking forward to HAMC (Hells Angels Motorcycle Club) India formation. Like we all know with the HD bikes in India, the company has also sent a herd of American riders here to educate HD India owners on how to ride their ride and HD group riding signals (which i will discuss later).
So lets get back to the point, how do we become a part of HAMC, when it starts in India (it will someday for sure. why not get ready?) ..
Candidates must be male, have a valid driver's license, have a working HD motorcycle and cannot be a child molester or have applied to become a police officer or prison guard.
For your info HAMC are one of the biggest OMGs (Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs) in the world. They don't like the cops very much and there has always been a cold-war between the two groups.
After a lengthy, phased process, a prospective member is first deemed to be a 'Hang-around', indicating that the individual is invited to some club events or to meet club members at known gathering places.
If the Hang-around is interested, he may be asked to become an 'Associate', a status that usually lasts a year or two. At the end of that stage, he is reclassified as 'Prospect', participating in some club activities, but not having voting privileges, while he is evaluated for suitability as a full member. The last phase, and highest membership status, is 'Full Membership' or 'Full-Patch'. To become a full member, the Prospect must be voted on by the rest of the Full-Patch members.
Full members are allowed to wear the four-piece crest, including the 'Death's Head' logo, two rockers and the rectangular 'MC' patch below the wing of the Death's Head while prospects are allowed to wear only a bottom rocker with the State or Territory name along with the rectangular 'MC' patch.
Be sure to know that Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Criminal Intelligence Service classify the Angels as one of the "big four" motorcycle gangs, contending that members carry out widespread violence, drug dealing, trafficking in stolen goods, and extortion but members of HAMC have continuously asserted that they are only a group of motorcycle enthusiasts who have joined to ride motorcycles together, to organize social events such as group road trips, fundraisers, parties, and motorcycle rallies.
