The MC strives for respect. This is especially true as it pertains to those persons outside of the motorcycle community. This segment of society is by far the larger, and therefore represents a larger market for any fund raising activities that the group might undertake. It stands to reason that cultivating a relationship with these people is important, and to be perceived by them as “Biker Scum” would not be advantageous to the club’s mission. Members should therefore conduct themselves as upstanding citizens in every way… “Good neighbors” so to speak. The goal is to be admired and respected by the general public rather than feared. Anyone associated with CVMC should always conduct themselves in a highly professional manner.
