LOL! The Bandidos MC? You're either really brave or extremely na´ve. These guys don't like being approached unless you're being brought to them by someone they already know.

I know some of the guys on the forum are running LEDs, they can probably give you the info you want.

The Banditos can and are a pretty bad 1%MC in certain areas around TX. They can also be pretty badass guys to hang out with according to some guys from my MC, Fire & Iron. They have their own ways sometimes and you just have to be careful how you approach them. Take care.

PS I want to see them lights also. Thanks.

No worries man, it happens. I had a run in with a MC that I'm not gonna name down in Florida last year. We were on the verge of a full on biker brawl over our patches of all things!!! LoL

Ok, i'm going off topic and gonna get long-winded.

First off, i apologize if i offended. I really didn't mean to.

I'm sorta old, and have had the opportunity to travel around a good bit. If there's one thing i've learned, it's this: people are people. No matter where i am, no matter where i've been, i've found really nice folks and i've found real jerks. At any school, workplace, church, neighborhood, country, gathering... anywhere. People are people.

I'm sure that within the Bandidos or any other 1%er MC there are some really nice people, but i guarantee there are some real jerks too. The trouble with these guys is that they have a reputation of being "Billy Badass" that they like to identify with and they try to perpetuate. Particularly when they're together as a group... call it a pack mentality if you will.

I've been in salvage yards that make use of dogs as a means of security. When the shop is open, and the owner is there, the dog may approach you, tail wagging, to check you out. At the least, it will probably allow you to approach it. Shut the shop, and approach the dog without the owner around though, and you're in serious trouble. Particularly if there's more than one dog because they feed off each other's anxiety.

Had you talked this guy on his own at a motorcycle show or something, he probably would have been more approachable. Any biker likes to be complimented on his (or her) bike. However, at a bar, with his club members, when he was in full stride trying to be "Billy Badass"? A positive response is pretty unlikely. Like you said, these guys think they run the place; and in their mind, they do.

My suggestion in dealing with patched members of any 1%er MC is to assess the situation and the environment for the given moment. It may be best just to leave them alone. After all, you don't put your hand through a fence to pet a junkyard dog.

Hopefully this works. I just got done lighting mine up a few days ago. I designed a kit with a guy who distributes here in Indiana and I installed it myself. Let me know what you think. This picture is without the bags on so the lights would show a bit better.
