About Membership

Membership Information for AGMC

For those folks that have been a member of other motorcycle club(s) in the past or for someone that is new to the motorcycle culture. Belonging to the right club can be one of the most rewarding things you will ever experience. Here at Americas Guardians we believe that so much has been lost in transition over the years from what it originally started out as after WW-II. If you read some of the history from that time period it is apparent that those clubs knew what was important. It was not about mandatory rules! It was about spending time with friends and family and riding motorcycles across the country. It was about forgetting all the stress brought on by world events and employment demands. At it’s most basic form, it was about riding motorcycles and having FUN!!! If you prefer strict rules, and mandatory attendance or you will be disciplined. We are not your type of club. We are a bunch of free spirits who love the open road and can’t wait till the next time we can gather to explore our great country on two wheels. If this sounds like what you have been searching for, then please contact us and we will be more than happy to help you become one of the brotherhood.

Rules of Life

  • There exists a group of people that believe that two is greater than four
  • One bike on the road is worth more than two in the shed
  • Live to ride and ride to live ... you don't stop riding because you get old, you get old because you stop riding
  • Saddlebags can never hold everything you want, but they do hold everything you need
  • I don't ride a bike to add days to my life, I ride a bike to add life to my days
  • Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window
  • Teach your children the love of motorcycles, and they will never have money for drugs
  • No matter how bad your day is, your bike will always make you feel better
  • No road is too long when you have good company

Our Leader

Jerry "Old Bear" Barker

The first AGMC member in Tennessee, Old Bear was looking for a club that was about riding. Club after club was more interested in parties, clubhouses, and image,. Riding to them was just a prelude to those. Old Bear was not interested in the drama that comes with that lifestyle. Discovering Americas Guardians was a breath of fresh air! Joining as a Long Rider, it wasn't long before Old Bear had found enough like-minded riders to apply and become Tennesse's first chapter. Steadily growing with additional outstanding riders that represent the best of their professions, Old Bear is still riding, and always interested in finding other "lost riders" looking for a different club.
