The Club, the Officers and Glossary of Terms


The intent of this section is to give you an overview of the structure and philosophy of the Khans Motorcycle Club.If motorcycles influence your lifestyle, then you are part of the motorcycle community. Of all the types of organizations found within that community, the traditional motorcycle Club stands apart and ranks highest in stature.

The following is a glossary of the terms frequently used in our Club aswell our rank positions.



President –The President is the CHAIRMAN of the Executive Committee and the Chief Executive Officer of the club chapter. All matters concerning relations between the club and any outside person or organization should be routed to the President for appropriate action. The President or his delegate shall assume the Chair at all chapter meetings. He is responsible for controlling the meeting and keeping order. If necessary, the Chair may utilize the services of the Sergeant-at-Arms to aid in keeping order.

Vice-President - The Vice-President shall coordinate all committees and supervise plans for all club events. The Vice-President shall act as an intermediary between the President and the Members and Prospects. All questions or comments concerning any club business not specifically related to the duties of the other officers should be brought to directly to his attention. Additionally, the Vice- President is the Second-in-Command to the President, and shall assume all responsibilities and duties of the President in their absence.

General – The General keeps all funds of the club chapter, as well as a record of colors, patches, or reproductions thereof issued to members. He may disburse funds to pay expenses as prescribed in the By Laws and Constitution. He is responsible for making and keeping all club chapter records, including: the membership list, the Bylaws, Rules of Order, Standing Rules, records of all committee appointments, all written reports, copies of all correspondence between the club and any outside person or organization, and the minutes.

Brigadier –The Brigadier is responsible for all club runs. He shall research, plan, and organize all runs. During actual time on the road or at intermediate stops during a run, he shall act as ranking club officer, deferring only to the President or Vice President. Also responsible for ensuring that the Bylaws and Standing Rules of the club are not violated, and that orders of the Chapter Officers are carried out in an expeditious manner. He is responsible for policing and keeping order at all club events. He is responsible for securing any patches or colors from any Member who resigns or is expelled. The Sergeant at Arms is responsible for the safety and security of the club, as well as the protection and defense of its Members and Prospects.

Nomad - Patch holder who have either served the club for a long time and contributed in a unique manner to the evolution of the club.

Warrior – This is the culmination of literally years of service to the Club. He now has full rights within the Club and is accepted by his peers as their equal. Full Patchholder status in one of the major Clubs is usually a '''til death do us part" kind of thing. Which is the reason this decision is not taken or looked upon lightly.

Half-Patch – A prospect moves to half-patch when the Club thinks he's ready. This period, when he usually wears a portion of the Club colors, is when he goes through the final testing that allows full members to gauge his worthiness. This period lasts anywhere from a little less than a year to two years or more. The final step is "Patchholder".

Prospect – Someone that has been an "Acquaintance", but has been raised a notch and who has been permitted into a more intimate relationship with the Club. They are expected to "hang around" the Club and its members for a period of time, usually a year or a little less. This allows Club members to gauge whether they want to let him in. The next step is "Half Patch". The prospect wears, a simple black leather vest with a prospect pacth on club colors on his chest.

Amazon - The Amazon rank is the culmination of a female job inside the club. Being an Amazon means she's treated as one of the most valuable parts of the MC, bringing balance to the brotherhood.

Property are women that hang-around or live at the clubhouse. She is property of the club and sometimes part of the group that bring money into the club’s membership in return for housing, protection, power and a little profiling at events. In Khans, unlike the one percenter culture, the property is considered an active member of the MC.

Acquaintance– Someone that is well known by the Club, usually for a fairly long period of time. This is the first step taken to a major Club. The next step is "Hang Around".

Good Standing – A member in good standing in the Club is in approval of his Club Brothers and maintains all rights and privileges within that Club.

Bad Standing – A member in bad standing in the Club is not in approval of his Club Brothers and has no rights or privileges within that Club. A member can also be removed from the Club in bad standing, which forfeits his right of returning to the Club for any reason. This is usually the result of a vote taken at the local chapter level.

Sponsor- A full patched brother willing to help a hangaround in the process of becoming a prospect. Once the hangaround becomes a prospect he's still in "debt" with his sponsor and will continue linked to him. The sponsored prospect does not works entirely for his sponsor tough, he works for the entire Club.

As you can see, there is a strong organization within the Club. You can also see what some of these Patchholders have gone through to literally "earn" their status. This is the biggest reason why we must show them the respect they deserve. It's also the reason you are shown respect by other Patchholders. They expect you to know what they have gone through and assume that you have done the same thing to earn the right to wear your colors. Honor and respect are paramount when dealing in any MC situation. Being a Patchholder in an MC is an honor not to be taken lightly. You will be looked up to by independent bikers; you will be looked at as an "equal" by other patchholders; and you will be looked at with curiosity and, in some cases, disdain, by the new, casual, or "wannabe" bikers that are out there. These are the reasons why we expect and demand that you behave in a way that brings no dishonor or disrespect to the Club whatsoever! You will be watched, and everyone you see will note your behavior accordingly!
