Border Town Biker Bash 2018 Dates.

We want to give you an explanation as to why the skull and hands are so prevalent within the biking community.
Skull symbolism has been around for a very long time. While many people consider the skull to be a symbol of mortality, it’s actually the opposite, as it is a symbol of immortality. Its means that even after death, once all the flesh has withered away, our bones still remain on this Earth. The skull is simply the one part of our skeletal system that we instantly recognize as human.
Bikers are from every walk of life, businessman, banker, lawyer, doctor, law enforcement, military service personnel, some retired some not but the list goes on. Motorcycle riders are not looking to ransack towns or invoke some god of war. We’re really just looking to enjoy our bikes and have a good time with like minded friends. We want to be safe on the road and don’t wish any of our fellow riders to die.
So why do we hold a symbol of death so close to us?
It’s a visual acknowledgement of our fate. Perhaps some of us hope to die while living a life totally with our motorcycles. We know that Death always rides with us no matter how hard we try to ride safely.
It’s a visual way to attract and drive away certain people. By displaying skull symbolism on ourselves, we’re using it as a filter to bring in people who identify with us and drive away people that don’t.
The skull levels the playing field. It doesn’t matter how powerful you were in life, you’re no greater in death. While each of our skulls are different, you can’t really recognize someone by looking at their skull. That tends to have a homogenizing effect on us all.
Skull symbolism expresses our commitment until death, to motorcycling, to our club, and to our brothers and sisters. It’s also how we carry with us all others who came before us.
We hope in some way this helps explains the reasons for this symbolism and we thank you for your time and interest.
Good bikes, great friends, and a hell of a good time!
