    Default Setting up an MC

    Guy’s,
    Question, how do i set up an official motorcycle club in scotland. Currently there is a bunch of us who go on runs and there are now about 17/18 of us in total.

    Do we need to be part of the MBF or any other scottish governing body?

    Also how does it affect my membership with the SDC?

    Cheers guys,
    Ronson1000

    I’ve said MC as that’s what everyone will recognise but i truth the group will probably be preferred to be called an RC.

    All you have to do is call your club whatever name you wish to call it and make yourselves known. You don't have to be affiliated to any 'official' body.
    If you will have membership fees it might be best to have a bank account which will require 3 officials - president (or chairman), secretary and treasurer a written constitution. If you will be holding rallies or similar events you would need public liability insurance which you would have if your club joined the BMF or can be bought separately.
    None of this will have any affect on your SDC membership. You can be in as many bike clubs, or any other clubs, as you like.

    Cheers derek. So we are pretty much set up as is then. Except from having a written constitution, fees, and club positions i.e. president.

    I’ll pose this to the group and see if we want to go down this route or keep it the same ultra relaxed, come and go setup we have atm.

    Best to keep it ultra relaxed, come and go if you can. As soon as you have to have office bearers it won't be.

    Funny I’ve been group messaging the ‘members’ yeah no one is even remotely bothered. Guess we’ll keep the status quo.
