Do you think the bars on the windows are to keep people out or the bikers in?
I like the cheerful blue. Makes me think of the ocean and Harleys.

earnest: i think there is ghost in there

GGP: i wish i was a member of a club.

Catherine Penfold-Waxman: 25th Jan 2006 - 20:39 GMT

elaine: 25th Jan 2006 - 20:40 GMT

jack: 26th Jan 2006 - 04:54 GMT

My father was a very important member of this biker club, and not only are the people who are a member wonderful but they are considered to be a part of my family. the bars are there to keep people like those bashing it out.

For those of you who did not know Imperial's has been in existence for over thirty years. It is time that imperials rise higher than we've ever risen before within a community of supporters and friends. We welcome you as you welcome us.

This is a really great club, They have some of the greatest people as members. They are a very loving bunch of people and really funny, too. Their parties are some of the best!

chocolate formerly of the jaguars mc: 30th Jan 2010 - 21:13 GMT

i havent been in a longtime but the imperials was always my all time favorite mc. their parties and bike blessings were always the best and they stayed true to the path of real bikers. I was 18 when i first went there in 1991 and the crowd was much older but they could party!!! no fighting and weed smoking---- good music ,plenty of dancing and at that time it was safe. i dont know how its been as of late, i've heard rumors. I love the imperials. Wednesday night is crab night!

Magnus - Air Assault - VA: 25th Feb 2010 - 16:36 GMT

I heard that Imperial Bikers hosts a bike weekend in Ocean City for Memorial day, is that right? and where will it be held?

Jay Caribe MC: 5th May 2010 - 04:36 GMT

Thank You for all the good times i had in your club house. Jay Crazy Louie's son from Caribe MC

Jay CARIBE MC B'KLYN (aka Lil Crazy Louie): 18th Nov 2012 - 03:23 GMT

It's good to know that there are still old school mc clubs still around. I grow up hanging around Imperial bikers, Transit Wheelers mc, The Hogs mc,Pythons mc, Cycle Kings mc. Am born in. Bless to all my bro and sis that are on two wheels.

capt fall down/hawk: 5th Mar 2013 - 21:19 GMT

does anyone know how hatto is doing?

Gabe: 14th Nov 2014 - 20:07 GMT

I joined the pythons in 1978 I was 18 , rode for a few years with them left came back and so on. those years riding with them was the best years of my life. Friday night round robins, and the trophy party's I still have my trophy I won at Caribe's in 1983, it was a time when you can go to 4 parties in one night with no problems, everybody made sure you got home, i'm glad to say I had over a thousand brother's and sisters that I will never forget my colors are proudly displayed on my wall. I Google pythons and other clubs at the time but no info can be found like we never was their to begin with. but I was their I have stories and memories to tell my children and grandchildren. of a time that the city of NY had these MC clubs that were united in love and friendship. I remember as a kid seeing the pythons on myrtles ave and the hogs on dekalb ave I said I want a bike I want to be a python and I was. I want to thank one and all for such a great life.


Ruby: 21st Nov 2014 - 16:06 GMT

Yes Gabe. YES!!! Mc clubs was united and proud. My child hood was all about different clubs I went to, parties, ect... I miss those days. I grew up with Caribe mc brooklyn. sunset park. thats where my heart is. undying love.

Gabe: 1st Dec 2014 - 13:14 GMT

if anyone is interested in a book about Brooklyn MC clubs , Brooklyn Kings New York City Black Bikers that's the name of the book it goes into some history but very deep its a good book article's on many clubs but not all the imperial bikers has pictures and a paragraph dedicated to them. I would of liked to have seen more on the 1970's ,1980's that's when the clubs were hot, pythons, hogs, Caribe 1, Caribe II, midnight cruiser ,mavericks, 69's, cobras, jersey city cruisers, zodiacs, sophisticated gents, the diablos, road tramps, and who cant forget johny red of VIP RIDERS many many more but those 2 decades was the best. pick up the book and pass it around place it in your trophy case or even bring it to your club for all to read for generations to come. if anyone will like to communicate with me email me at I would like to hear from you reminder I'm Gabe no riding name but Gabe I just turned 18 had a 250 Suzuki at the time .puertorican 5'3" tall so they could not find a riding name for me so the pythons just called me by name. sonny, baby huey, miss trophy and all the members of the pythons Hope you read this and contact me as well. enjoy your holidays one and all....

Rhem: 1st Sep 2015 - 02:07 GMT

I was a member of the Jaguars on Buffalo Ave and I must say those were some great times in the 70's and 80's for MC Clubs in New York. I remember the Blessings and parties. i regret to say that a lot of the old timers have passed on and they will be missed.

Rhem: 1st Sep 2015 - 02:09 GMT

Capt. Fall Down get in touch, can bring you up to speed on some old timers status.
