Q: I like your patch, what does it mean?
A: The patch we wear on our backs, is very much like the shield that was carried by Knights while on their quest. Our patch has a shield bearing three hands surrounded by a golden yellow laurel. Each one of the hands symbolize the bond that keeps us together; unity, friendship, and fidelity.

The Laurel is a symbol of victory. With our unity, friendship, and fidelity we will always be victorious.

Yellow symbolizes hope, light and energy.

Black represents power, elegance, and sophistication,

White represents cleanliness, purity, and spirituality. Thus the white wings symbolizing the freedom of our ride.

Q: Where do I get a FARC back patch?
A: The FARC patch can't be purchased. It is given to a member upon payment of their first years dues. The FARC patch is not for sale to the general public.

Q: I live in Podunk, I'd like to join your chapter.
A: If we have a chapter in Podunk (wherever that is) you are welcome to join them. We are not an internet riding club. We ride, and we ride alot. Our members have shown thier committment by joining and actively participating in chapter activities and events. There are many internet motorcycle groups available for you to join. Type Safe. <wink>

Q:What if I don't have access to the internet, except at work or a friend?
A:You are always welcome, but our high paying jobs ($0.00) don't provide for us to do mailings. You will need to be able to get access via a friend, library or school.

Q: What is FUGAWI?
A: The word FUGAWI is deeply imbedded within American Indian folklore. Legend has it that Indian tribes would often pick up stakes,pack their T-Pees and head out across the great plains in search of a new place to live. During their quest, which often lasted many months and caused immeasurable hardship to the members of the tribe, the cry FUGAWI? could be heard resounding through the prairie.

The US Cavalry enlisted the aid of Native Americans to act as scouts and guides. The guides were entrusted with getting the troops from one place to another safely and quickly. Often, they found themselves lost. Rather than alert the soldiers, they were heard to yell out FUGAWI? to one another. The troops were under the impression that it was part of an Indian ritual, and waited respectfully until the ritual was ended when they heard the reply "IDUNNO".

Q: Is there a ''code of conduct"?
A: Well, we are not the "Ride Police", so if your tags are expired, we may remind you, but that's your problem, Don't let it become our problem. We will however stick to some hard and fast rules:

Keep it clean = Conduct yourself as a human being...some places require conduct that would not upset grandma. Other places, are almost 'anything goes'. Know the difference. There's a time and place for everything.

Keep it safe = Know the Riding Rules , no hot-dogging, no changing lanes before it's secured, no DWI or any other stunts.

Keep it legal = No criminal activity will ever be tolerated.

With respect to alcohol, we reserve the right to not allow participation on a ride or the riding part of an event if one is deemed to be no longer safe for group riding. Please don't put us in that position. Use your better judgement.

What you do when not on a FARC ride, or not wearing the FARC patch, for the most part, is none of our concern. We do however, take our reputation very seriously.
