Is the IOMC a 1% Motor Cycle Club?    
NO! And we never will be.

What territories do you claim?  
NONE and Never will we claim territories.
We wear a rocker to tell others where we are from nothing more.  

Is the Iron Order a Law Enforcement Motorcycle club?
NO, however we do have LEOs spread throughout our club.

Do you allow drugs like marijuana?  
No and Hell NO!  No illegal drugs whatsoever!!

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. To those who are looking for
some kind of conspiracy or secret alliance with other clubs, there is none.

How many members do you have?  
More than one and less than a million.

How many chapters do you have?
They are all linked to our National Website check them out at on our chapters page.

Can women join the IOMC?
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.  Therefore we are a men's club.  However, we do
have a women's support group, the Iron Order Maidens.  You can check them out at their
website link on our National Website at

Are you bad asses?  
We all have asses, some bigger than others.  We are family men, we work hard, we play
hard, we ride hard, and take care of our brothers.  No time for school yard games.

Are you guys for real?  
We are what we say we are, nothing more and nothing less.

I heard you guys are posers and not a real MC, is that true?
It depends on who you ask.  We have all posed for pictures.  You ask if we are not a real
MC.  We are a motorcycle club to every definition and qualification.  If you mean are we
involved in illegal activities that will put our members and club at risk then the answer is no. If
you mean do we disrespect the law and rights of others the answer is no again. But if you
are asking if we're a real MC then the answer is on our backs, read it.  

If you guys are law abiding and have law enforcement in your club
then 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.  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.  That means they partied their asses off and shocked the world with the new found
freedom of being themselves which in turn caused them to band together in a very special
brotherhood.  Today the IOMC is a true outcast club with a very strong brotherhood since we
are by ourselves.  We do not conform to the protocols that are illegal and infringe on the
rights of others.  We are not welcome by many clubs because of our stand on many issues.  
We accept our position in the biker world of being our own organization truly free of anyone's
rules but our own.  We are independent and remain totally out of all other clubs and
organization's business.  For all these reasons we wear a three piece patch.

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.  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 can join the Iron Order?
If you are male, 18 years of age, law abiding with no felony convictions, have a cruiser style
motorcycle more than 650cc, and a strong desire to do something good for your community
while at the same time helping build a true national brotherhood of like minded
individuals....then you MIGHT be IOMC material.

Do I have to be a Probate or Prospect for the IOMC?  
Yes. We're all grown men. This isn't a schoolyard and we're no bullies. 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 Probate or Prospect period
(the name changes depending on what part of the world you are from).  You will prove your
desire to wear our cut and your commitment to our values and 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.
