International Motorcycle Club
Founded in 1965
I have been riding for 45 years-- alone.
I have learned well who I am, and where I belong.
I never realized what I was --until now --
I am truly a Silent Skull Lone Biker.
Well my brothers, this has been a slow year for me only twelve thousand miles so far. All in the best of Silent Skulls Style. Heck when riding through Texas wearing my patch as usual passed a car with a guy in it that looked like a biker. The way he looked at me as I passed him figured I would be seeing him again. Didn’t take long. He was at the next rest stop, walked up wanting to talk. I do that talking thing sometimes, but not often. He seemed worried I knew why when he identified the club he was president of. I told him I had been riding for fifty years and the road held few mysteries for me including patch. But he insisted on riding at my six, a military thing. He stayed with me through Texas and we parted ways just before I crossed the News Mexico line. If you don’t worry and follow standard club procedures, Life is good and there is little to worry about, just wanted to THANK a military rider from pueblo CO. for the thought. It has been friendly out there on the open roads. Only trouble I have is that I am in my mid sixties and ready to party all nights and days. So don’t worry, put your patch on and ride proudly but not stupidly. Keep the rubber side down. SSLB Daigojim SSFFSS
In 2014 we are planning to do Sturgis for the rally flying the bikes out and taking a month to tour over to the west coast and down to Los Vegas down into Mexico and then back up to LA to ship the bikes back home. So if any brothers out there that would like to have a chat and hopefully meet up for a beer on the way can you please let me know of any members that I can contact?

Hello my SSLB Brothers!Just a Shout Out to you all. I bent to the temptation a while ago and patched with a 3 piece Club. I met Great People and had some Great times. Let me tell you something!!! You wake up one day and you realize that you are a Silent Skull Lone Biker, and when you try to fool with that and become something that isn't in your blood, you crash and burn and re-learn just who you really are. For those who don't understand us, there is nothing that we can say to them to make them think like we do; for those who understand us, then the truth is easy to see for them and they embrace our Club and our Philosophy.I know who I am. I tried the other side and it did not work for me. Remember that your Soul calls you and that will never change!!!I am a Silent Skull Lone Biker!!!!My Jacket shows our Colors and I felt whole and complete again when I put that vest on and felt our Colors on my back! Life is a journey that we all take, some like me have been at Deaths Door many times and we embrace life for the time that we have here on this Planet. So, with that being said, I am FLYING OUR COLORS and RIDING THE CROSSROADS to wherever they take me.I have found myself, once again, as I truly am, a Silent Skull Lone Biker Motorcycle Club Member! Anything else for me is a lie.Rock on my Brothers!!!! SSLB Deacon (Oregon. USA)
I remember several years ago, I stumbled over the club quite by accident but immediately felt an affinity which is as strong now, if not stronger. Although as time has gone by I have found a few guys to hang with and ride with I still value my SSLB roots above everything.And whilst I am in England I have ridden with SSLB Sanoke in Colorado and SSLB Kara in Pittsburgh. I remain immensely proud of my club membership and my riding buddies respect the patch for what it is. Here's to many more years of the SSLBS.Respect, SSLB Collector (England, UK)
Well a new year of riding season is approaching, hopefully it can be as good a year as last year's was.
I usually average 10,000 miles a year, but last year I got to 14,000 miles. Met a lot of friends along the way and got to ride in some different areas. Had a lot of help from some GREAT Brothers too. Seems I have a bad ticker, had heart failure in 2002 and it has been a up and down ride since then. Lost my job at the bike shop in Oct 08 (Damn Recession!) and decided last year was the year to do some serious riding. So last year I took the wife up to
Niagara Falls in NY and took the long way back through PA. After that trip I decided to take a solo ride and visit a friend down in TN. My bike handled it all just fine and I didn't suffer too much, drank a lot of power aide and coffee. When I was coming up from TN, I hooked up with about 8 bikes and we rode as group into VA. One of the guys was from Australia, he had shipped his bike to FL. and was riding up the east coast, hope he made it, I think I made a good impression for the club with them all.
So hopefully everyone will get the bikes rolling somewhere interesting this year. The next time someone says we are a computer club, just look at them and smile!!

DO YOU EVER WONDER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A "BIKER", AND A "RIDER", ?I WORK IN OAKLAND CA. WHICH MEANS THAT I RIDE BY, IN MY COLORS ... a 1% 'ER CLUB HOUSE, AND the E. B. RATS CLUB HOUSE. I'VE SEEN THESE GUYS ON THEIR BIKES WHILE RIDING ... I HAVE EVEN WAVED THEM A LEFT HAND IN PASSING ... AND 98% OF THE TIME, THEY WAVED BACK.REGARDLESS OF BEING IN A 1%ER MC ... OR IN A RETIRED COP MC, OR IN A RELIGIOUS MC, OR AN INTERNATIONAL MC ... WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO ULTIMATELY IS RESPECT FOR LOVING TO RIDE ... FOR THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR THE MACHINE THAT YOU PUT YOUR LIFE HANDS INTO ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR THE LOVE OF THE RIDE ... FOR EVERY ASPECT OF KNOWING THAT ONLY PEOPLE ON BICYCLES, OR PEDESTRIANS HAVE SHITTIER ODDS ON A STREET, OR HIGHWAY THAN YOU. NO MATTER WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING FOR YOU ... WHEN YOU STRADDLE YOUR BIKE, AND WEAR YOUR COLORS ... AT THAT MOMENT ... YOU ARE DIFFERENT, AND SPECIAL, AND HAVE MORE PRIDE THAN EVERYONE ELSE ON THAT ROAD, STREET, HIGHWAY, OR WHEREVER ...A "RIDER" IS A BIKER THAT JUST ISN'T READY TO BE A BIKER YET ... A "BIKER" IS A RIDER THAT REALIZED IT'S ABOUT SO MUCH MORE.FOREVER A LONE BIKER SSLB Paddy
Hello all of my SSLB Brothers and Sisters.
I just wanted to take the time to send a few words to those in our Club.I had just rode down to my old High School in Lincoln City Oregon, I rode in full Colors and leathers on my custom Harley Chopper. I took this trip to just look at where I had been at one time in my life. Anyway I rode up there in all my glory and parked in the front parking lot, I had gotten there just as the school was letting out. Let me tell you, I WAS A SIGHT TO SEE!!" The looks I was getting from the Staff and students and parents was worth a week's pay. I walked into the school like Moses parting the Dead Sea and the fun continued, I had to sign in at the desk, which I did, using my biker name: "Deacon".
sslb Deacon, (OR, USA)
I was sure I'd like the skull identity and a few times I admit I almost sent it back (feeling unworthy). Then a couple of clubs wanted me to look at them, I road with them, why not? Did a couple of thing, then said FUCK THIS. I don't like other people saying where we're going and when we're getting there. I don't like the rule and all of bullshit that comes up. I COMPLETELY respect that if in a traditional club one has put in the time, earned the patch, I give that man respect. But enough politics and bull shit everywhere else in my life.
I like to ride, do my thing, and go where I want. And if I feel like just parking it for a while. I fucking will park it. Anyway, I am completely re-committed to the standards of the club.

I just gotta vent..
I'm 55 years old this month and been riding since I was 17 yrs. old. ! LOVE BIKES! I love fixing, painting, modifying, restoring and most of all, riding. I used to love hanging and riding with other bikers but now I hate it. What the hell happened? No one knows even basic info about their bike or how to ride them. Guys spend tens of thousands of dollars on new bikes and then thousands more in paint and off the shelf chrome, then ride thr the end of town to another coffee shop on the other end. The coffee shops all through town are jammed with these guys. If it wasn't so ridiculous it would be hilarious. They can't tell you where the oil filter is on their bike. How did this happen?
I have owned just about every kind of bike there is. I'm not snobby about what anyone rides, so long as they RIDE it. I currently have a 79 Yamaha XS1100 SG that I restored to original condition and a 80 Yamaha XS1100 SH that has been bobbed as well as extensive engine work. Both bikes were saved from the scrap yard. With the exception of machining I did all the work myself, repairing and reconditioning parts. I know my bikes inside and out.
I was the target of a lot of jokes but eventually when I didn't give up they really helped me out. These guys lived day to day by their wits. This was before the drugs , money and guns came out. When that happened, most drifted away rather than patch over. Me included. I did learn some good lessons about respect, loyalty, brotherhood and living the biker code. Don't see much of those things around anymore. I now avoid most motorcyclists and the places they hang out and even the roads they ride. It seems that my passion has been cheapened by the main stream citizens. I find it offensive that marketing has bypassed the learning curve that it takes to become a biker.
I am old school, and maybe a dying breed. For sure an endangered species. I am a Silent Skull (4 yrs. now) I ride alone by choice. I resent prostitution of my Biker Heritage.

Not many Skulls out there I hear from since they took the board down years ago. Maybe we can do a guestbook on the site and we can leave messages to contact others or let ‘em know we might be ride’n through. Wouldn’t take so much babysitting of the site. Just a thought...
SSLB Highway, IN, USA.
A very Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all our fellow Skulls and especially to those working behind the scene who built and maintain this club. It is a valuable alliance to those who belong nowhere else. Whenever I'm having a great ride I often think that there is an army of SSLBs all over the world doing the same thing as I do. Hope to see some of you out there in the spring.

Hello my Skull brothers and sisters,
It is 2009 and a New Year and I am so excited to be a Skull member of this awesome motorcycle club. I have been flying our colors for a year now and I have been warmly welcomed by all.The questions that I get all the time are fun to answer and watch the reactions from the other biker's and club members. I have been to several big event's including the Rolling Vietnam Wall Memorial and I was honored to represent our Club. I rode along as one of the escort's and I saw several other Clubs' there. I do not follow, I do not lead, I do not look for acceptance from other's. I am who I am. A Silent Skull Lone Biker. Look for me my fellow Silent Skulls Lone Bikers. The wind and roads call our names.
SSLB Deacon from OR, USA.
To all my SSLB brothers and sisters, I have been a member of SSLB for about six years and I haven't had a chance to meet or ride with any from SSLB. I did get the chance however to meet briefly some of my SSLB brothers in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia. And I look forward to the chance to meet with some of my brothers in the Northwest.SSLB EDDIE in OR, USA.
I tasted indescribable pleasure and pride, that at us at last all has turned out, that all is made correctly and that I am awarded abuse to enter your club, especially as its first representative in our huge country - Russia! I shall not bring your club down and with pride I shall carry its colors!!!SSLB Andrew in St-Petersburg, Russia
I will just tell you that I have received the Patch and all other stuff today. I'm very grateful for admit to membership, I will contribute with pics when I have made some. Many thanks for all!
sslb Wolfman in NORWAY.
I have been flying our Colors all over the west side of Oregon and having a blast. Everywhere I have gone I have been warmly welcomed and asked all about our Club. The chats I have had with the Biker world have all been positive. It is so cool to be in our Club.\The weather is finally getting hot and all the motorcycles are coming out and blasting down the highway. And, I am right in the thick of them, riding on my own, a Silent Skull Lone Biker, big, fat, happy and blasting the countryside showing our Colors and our style.SSLBFFSSLB !!!SSLB Deacon in OR, USA
I received my membership kit the other day and now have my patches put on my vest. Could not be a prouder person. Will be flying the colors with honor and cursing the roads alone. Loving every last moment of it. See you out there. Silent Skulls Lone Bikers for ever!!!!SSLB Gypsy in USA
I just had my Patch sewed on the back of my new vest. I picked it up yesterday put it over my black leather motorcycle jacket and walked back across the street in Oregon city. I was standing by my Harley Chopper getting all my head gear on when a guy in a green large SUV pulled up beside me and stopped. I looked at him and he started to yell and shout, -Silent Skulls Lone Bikers- he did this several times. I finally figured out what he was doing, he was one of US !!!!!!!
Can you believe that!! Not even two minutes out of the gate and we have another Brother SSLB there !!!!!I was wearing a big smile all the way home. Froze my butt off and didn’t care !!!!!
SSLB Deacon in OR, USA.
Just to say THANKS, I got my membership kit to say I am impressed is an under statement. A lot quicker than I thought to. Not the best biking weather here in the UK but by the time my badges are on, it will be. You guys ride safe and I will be in touch again soon.jsslb aybee in England

Hello Skull brothers.A happy new bike year to all skull brothers. I am still on the road... still a Silent Skull...
sslb BULL from Belgium.
I've just got out of the hospital in about 3 months. It would be nice to get a card or may be a visitor.
I broke almost every bone left side, a few right side and left side of face broken mostly, L eye out of socket/orbit. I was pronounced DOA in the hospital, given last rights by a priest, then the nurse checked the pulse again and rushed me to OR. After 4 surgeries, I lost count of pins and screws... 11 months of hospitalization,...blah blah... rest is history.
OH WELL SHIT HAPPENS!
sslb Rocky in IN, USA.
I hope everyone is doing great to my SSLB family. I just put on 1,200 miles in 5 days, I left West Virginia and went to Tennessee and then up through Kentucky and into Ohio. I had no problem at all with anyone...except for riding through Kentucky, but that's just the way the people were in Kentucky. It has been a great summer for riding, and I'm planning already for my next trip...as to where who knows. It's great to be out there alone...leave ...and go whenever I want to. It is also nice to be asked about the club as well...it gives the outsiders so to speak an education about who we are as SSLBs. I sent a few picture that you might be able to use.

A big hello form sslb Fox from Belgium Europe. I had some contact with other Belgian Skulls and we're trying to have a get-together. It would be nice to see other Skulls. Maybe you can add this call to your site and hand my firstname.lastname@example.org over to the other Belgian and Dutch members. If they want to participate they can always contact me.Thanks and biker greets,sslb Gert "Fox" Devos in Belgium
Silent Skulls believe a club meeting is sharing a lane of asphalt with another Lone Bikers even when the ride takes them to different places. The lone Bikers seem to riding alone but knowing they share the cross roads with their fellow bikers. The “Silent” is broken when two bikers meet and share thoughts about riding, bikes and upcoming trips.
SSLB “Bloodline” in MS, USA.
I just received my freeway kit last week, I was impressed with the quality of it all. It feels good to be a Silent Skull. Good to know there other bikers out there doing the same and feeling the same. I get a lot of questions when I wear my colors, sometimes I answer them. I also tell them to check out the web site. I will see you Skull brothers/sisters on the roads. Until our paths across, I'll be looking for the patch. It is good to know we're out there together.
SSLB Herb in PA, USA.
I don't know if any other SSLBs keep hearing (" Silent Skulls", oh that is just an internet biker club"). When I go anywhere in my SSLB tee shirt or colors that is what I hear. Some bikers just don't know or understand what being a SSLB is all about. But they have heard of us though. They don't realize that we are a real club that wants to remain out of the lime light. They don't get that it is better to lead yourself and ride when, how, where and with whom you want.I don't try to explain it to them because they are not what a Silent Skull needs to be. I just say ok and go on about my own way knowing that I made the right call for myself by becoming a Silent Skull Lone Biker and wear my colors with pride. There are other Skulls in my area that I know and see when we want to not because we have to.Silent Skull Lone Biker Skuzz in IN, USA
I came to the conclusion that strict rules are nothing for me. I'm a LONE BIKER IN HEART AND SOUL.....that is one thing for sure.
sslb Bull in Holland
I pledge allegiance to the Silent Skulls of the world , and to its philosophy for which it stands , Silence And Lone on this earth. A brotherhood united , yet NOT in the usual sense. One earth , two wheels, one patch and one brotherhood , with freedom and anonymity for us ALL .
RIDE TILL YOU BONE!
SSLB ROBERT in OH, USA
Hey bros, I got my Freeway stuff few days ago, it was cool and all seemed to like the look. I rode to state-line NEVADA wearing my SKULL T -SHIRT, and a brother SKULL came up introduced himself as a brother SKULL. He told me he was from FRISCO' that was cool. I had a lot of good comments about SSLBs and everyone thought it was cool. Any way I'm gonna go to the Laughlin run this year and hope to see some brothers.SSLB NOHAIR in CA, USA
