Is the IOMC a 1% Motor Cycle Club?
No. And we never will be.
What territories do you claim?
None. And we never will we claim territories. We wear a rocker to tell others where we are from nothing more.
I heard you're all cops, is that true?
No kidding?......... we hear that all the time too. All clubs have cops in them we just happen to know who ours are.
What other Motorcycle Clubs are the IOMC 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.
How many members do you have?
More than one and less than a million.
How many chapters do you have?
They are all listed on our National Website check them out on our chapters page and the International Chapters page.
Can women join the IOMC?
No. The IOMC is a very traditional motorcycle club that follows the same traditions set by motorcycle clubs in the 50's and early 60's.
Why do you wear a three piece patch like an outlaw motorcycle club?
We abide by the same traditions of motorcycle clubs in the 1950's and 60's who were social outcasts and non conformists. Contrary to what many organizations and people say, there was no COC or protocols in that period of time. During this time in MC history the clubs who wore a three piece patch were outside of normal society and free of the restrictions society put on social customs. They got along with each other and respected each other. They made their own rules and didn't impose them on others. They developed their own code and lived by it.
Today the IOMC is a true outcast club with a very strong brotherhood since we are by ourselves. We mind our own business and do not get involved with other clubs or the COC or similar organizations. We do not conform to the protocols that are illegal and infringe on the rights of others.
Why do you guys wear a state rocker?
The founders of the club had to decide on the design of our colors. We were in Louisville, Kentucky. We asked if we should fly a city rocker and we were told that was claiming territory which our club will never do. We asked if we should fly a county rocker and we were told the same thing. We asked if we should fly a region like Northern Kentucky and again it was a screwy answer. We got tired of the screwy answers. It seems that everyone wants to tell a club what they can and cannot wear. It made no sense to us. Finally we asked for a suggestion as to what we should fly and we were told "Brotherhood". Well we don't live in the town of "Brotherhood". We decided on the state rocker since we do not claim territory and it made sense to us that the state would not designate a territory.
Who are the Iron Rockets and why are they on your website?
The Iron Rockets MC is an affiliated club to the IOMC. They are our brothers from different mothers who ride different wheels. The IRMC is the IOMC riding sport bikes and sharing our founding principles. They are our equal brothers.
Who can join the Iron Order?
If you are male, 18 years of age, with no felony convictions, have a cruiser style motorcycle more than 650cc not necessarily a Harley or American made (Trikes are OK too), 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.
Joining us means you are joining a unique and tight brotherhood not involved with other clubs, not willing to give up our freedom and rights and not allow anyone to tell us how to run our club. We follow our own rules and code which follow the true, historical origins of MC's and are outlined in the Constitution of the United States and other countries that accept our democratic values. You must be willing to stand up for yourself and your brothers against all adversity and be faithful to our brotherhood. This is a truly independent brotherhood and joining is not a decision to be taken lightly.
Do I have to be a Probate or Prospect for the IOMC?
Yes. We're all grown men. 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.
How do I find out more information?
Scour our website, go to all the chapter links and look at the other IOMC sites. Find one near you and talk to them. If you see an IOMC brother out somewhere, introduce yourself and go from there.
