Motorcycle Riders Assoc.-Florida
Who We Are
Sons Motorcycle Riders Association-Florida and it's chartered chapters in
Florida are an
affiliate of the Widows Sons Masonic Motorcycle Riders Assoc., Int'l. We
are a non-brand specific riding association chartered as a social club by the
so no matter what brand of
motorcycle you ride (minimum 500cc), so long as you are a Master Mason in good
standing (AF&AM or F&AM) you are welcome as a member. We also have associate
membership open to non-Masons, subject to a vote of our active members. We are
an internationally based group of independent Masons who have joined together to
simply share the thrill of riding with other members of our fraternity.
We do not intend to speak for or represent any Masonic body. We simply want to
share our passion for riding with all other Masons who ride, and have some fun
while we do it.
We are not a
club. We are just a social riding association, which happens to have set
of its membership requirements to include being a Master Mason in good standing.
Our name comes from certain aspects of our Fraternity, it is not intended to
instill fear or appear threatening in any way.
territorial and do not condone illegal activities by our members. All we ask is
that our members act in a way that will reflect well on our club, our Fraternity
and motorcycling in general.
We have an association patch comprised of a picture of the Widow, the words
Widows Sons and the name of our local Chapter. We also wear a Square & Compass
patch (as we are entitled to do as Masons) to denote our personal fraternal
affiliation. This is not a part of our colors; it is simply a common custom
among members of our Fraternity to wear this symbol.
We strive to be friends and on good terms with
other clubs, associations and riders we share the road with.
We realize that wearing "colors" is a serious matter and wear them
appropriately. We understand there are clubs that have been around for many
years and we respect that totally! We realize we are able to enjoy many of our
riding freedoms thanks to the many clubs, associations and riders that have
ridden in the wind before us.
Our patch allows other riders to know who we are and where we are from. We wear
the name of our Chapter simply to identify where we are from
to claim any territory.
We ask all our members to wear their patch proudly and to always show respect
for all other clubs, associations and riders. We do not take sides or involve
ourselves when it comes to other club or association politics. We do not claim
turf or territory.
Our members are also individually, members of ABATE, HOG, AMA and other similar
motorcycling associations. We come from all walks of life, including veterans of
our Armed Forces.
If any prospective members or others have any questions or would like more
information about the Widows Sons we encourage them to contact us.
