Drop by our weekly Thursday night meetings at our clubhouse (see the Home page and Contacts page), come to any of our events (see the Events page), or if you see us out and about come talk to us. You can also email us at QBMC@yahoo.com . Please note QBMC reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone.
You need to:
Next, we'll want to get to know you, and you'll want to get to know us, so come and see us at our weekly meetings or our events.
Once we get to know you a bit, we'll invite you to ride with us. If you've never before ridden in a pack and struggle a bit at first that's ok-- there's room for growth. On the other hand, we're not a school for riding instruction-- you'll need to show competence on a bike and your ability to more or less follow our road rules (which are pretty simple).
Final step is prospecting. It's a period during which you demonstrate your willingness to contribute and to be a reliable member. You'll help set up for meetings and events, ride with us, and accompany officers to events. You'll also learn motorcycle club protocols. Following your prospect period, the membership will vote on making you a full member.
No. Not as a member either.
No. All makes and models of bikes are welcome. We have members who own Harleys, members who own metrics, and members who own both.
Yes dues are required, and they mostly go to maintain our clubhouse. We don't say publicly what our dues are, but rest assured they are not prohibitive-- if you can't afford the dues, you probably can't afford gasoline for your motorcycle.
Prospects are not required to pay dues.
We are one club, one chapter, with our clubhouse in what's known as "New York City's Riviera", Willets Point, Queens.
No you don't have to live in Queens to be a member, but if you do live in Queens you won't have far to travel for meetings and club events.
We like to stick to talking about our club and the kind of club we are, and let other clubs speak for themselves. As to our club, you're expected to have 3 priorities in life: the first is your family, the second is your job, the third is your club.
We have no active women members. While our rules don't expressly restrict membership to men, women looking to join motorcycle clubs typically seek out clubs where membership is restricted to women.
