Ol Lady MC Etiquette – From one ol lady to another.

Ol Lady Etiquette 101

I have been an ol’ lady for 4 years now. I’ve had a lot to learn and sometimes the hard way. It is very easy to say the wrong things and upset someone without intending to. I have said and done things, because I didn’t know better, that got me in trouble. Fortunately, now I learned how to act and behave as a proper ol lady should. Here are a few tips so you don’t have to learn it the way I did.

• Don’t start any drama with any of the other ol’ ladies. They are ol’ ladies just like you are. We have to respect each other. We don’t want to be forbidden from hanging out or coming around, do we? It’s important for us to get along. Our men are brothers, so we will be seeing a lot of each other. We need to maintain a good relationship in order to avoid problems between them or them with us.

• Do not touch your man’s vest!!! It is sacred to them. There for offensive for anyone to put their hands on them. If you are cleaning and it’s in the way, simply ask him to move it. As much as it is of a pain in the butt to have to go move it, he will appreciate the fact that you asked and respected it instead of doing it yourself.

• I mean no disrespect to my ol’ man but his vest is sometimes filthy, disgusting, smelly, and it has bug juice splatter all over it. I fight the urge to clean it and let him deal with it himself. I’ve asked him about this type of situation and he told me that it’s against his beliefs to clean it. He said “It will get cleaned when I ride in the rain!”

• Don’t be bossy!! Whatever relationship you and your man have at home, stays at home. There’s a time and place for everything. One time we were at a bar and I told my ol’ man that I wanted to leave. Actually, more like demanded that we go home already. He gave me a nasty glare and instead of leaving at the time we originally said we were going to leave he punished me by staying ’till closing time. Lol He doesn’t like to be told what to do.

• When riding with your ol’ man hold on tight but make sure you don’t press your face up against his patches. The last thing you want to do is smear make up all over them. Best thing to do if you’re not wearing a full face helmet is to wait until you arrive at your destination to apply your lipstick.

• It’s dangerous to wear high heels while riding. You will get yourself burned. Be safe, wear riding boots instead. Colored heels tend to melt and stain their exhaust pipe. Believe me, your ol’ man will be pissed if you ruin his exhaust pipes. I know mine was.

• Even though it’s your ol’ man’s bike, don’t touch it, don’t lean on it, don’t sit on it without his permission. Doing so is a sign of disrespect towards him and his club.

The best advice that I can give you from an ol’ lady to another if you want a successful relationship, is to support and respect your man. Don’t give them an ultimatum. Don’t make him choose between you and his biker life because chances are he will give you a kick in the ass on your way out the door. I love my ol man, and promised him to be here thick and thin. It isn’t easy being an ol lady. But at the end of the day, if we want to continue to be a part of their lives we need to learn their rules and live by them. It takes discipline, especially at first. But it will eventually become the way you think.
