To become a member of the
Widows Sons, you have to be a Master Mason, in good standing, and must
have and ride a motorcycle.
Unlike other motorcycle organisations, The Widows Sons are not motorcycle brand specific. In fact, members of the South West Chapter have bikes ranging from Honda, Triumph, Ducati and we even have a member who rides a Victory. The South West Chapter covers the area from Bristol down to Cornwall.
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 1% club. We are just a social riding association, which happens to have set one 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 install fear or appear threatening in any way.
We are not 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 Association, our Fraternity and motorcycling in general.
We have a patch comprised of a picture and the words, "Widows Sons". 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 ‘colours’; 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 ALL other clubs, associations and riders we share the road with. We realise that wearing a patch is a serious matter and wear them appropriately. We understand there are groups that have been around for many years and we respect that Totally! We realise we are able to enjoy many of our riding freedoms thanks to the many groups and riders that have been ‘in the wind’ before us.
Our patch allows other groups to know who we are and where we are from. We wear the name of our Chapter simply to identify where we are from not to claim any territory.
In an effort to make sure all groups understand our purpose we have contacted the NCOM and the COC to make them aware of our existence and our purpose. We ask all our members to wear their patch proudly and to always show respect for all other groups and riders. We do not take sides or involve ourselves when it comes to other groups politics. We do not claim ‘turf’ or territory.
Our members are also individually, members of MAG, 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 other groups have any questions or would like more information about the Widows Sons we encourage them to contact us, we look forward to working with everyone in the motorcycling community to protect all our rights.
