Massachusetts Motorcycle Association

Biker Friendly (& Unfriendly) Establishments


To qualify as “Biker Friendly”, an establishment must have a consistent policy concerning admitting all riders regardless of their dress. Establishments publishing, posting, or communicating a “No Colors” policy in any form will be considered NOT Biker Friendly.

The MMA does not condone discrimination in any form and strongly encourages all riders to stick together by not patronizing any establishment with a “No Colors” policy and not attending any events (including Bike/Charity runs) which originate or terminate at those establishments.  Organizers as well as riders need to stand together by letting these establishments know that such policies will not be tolerated.


We are also aware that some establishments have posted signs but will still allow riders; this only means they want our money, but are not behind bikers.  Selective discrimination is still discrimination, and such establishments will remain “NOT Biker Friendly” until such signs and/or policies are removed.

Please contact BikerFriendly@MassMotorcycle.org with any additions or changes

Signs restricting no Motorcycle-specific affiliated clothing are popping up around the country. The Foxboro location recently added a sign stating this corporate policy of “no motorcycle affiliated colors allowed”. The MMA has also received verbal accounts of riders being turned away because of "vests" and "colors". Although some have been allowed entry if they remove their vests, we still consider this discriminatory.

Originally listed as Biker Friendly, reports from riders are that they have changed their stance.  Specific comment from a rider: “the owner made it a point to be RUDE to bikers”…  A major bike run committee member reported the following:

 

“One of my friends came in with her husband; bikes parked out front, and ordered food (dinner and drinks).  The owner made a point to find out to whom the bikes belonged and approached them saying, ‘move those bikes – I can’t have that here’…  The riders declined, but the owner persisted saying he wanted them away from the front of the restaurant and to park across the street.” – unclear if the riders were parked in marked spaces, but it was clear the motorcycles were not welcome in front of the establishment although the bill was acceptable.

 

On another occasion, the same rider reported that “2 gentlemen came in after the run with vests and colors.  The manager pulled me aside and said ‘please wrap it up with those two; if my father comes in and sees them, he’s gonna be pissed”…
