We the Vagabonds Brisbane Motorcycle Club have been around Brisbane's Bay side Wynnum since 1978. We did NOT pick up our Club Patch until after 1980. We do not have Chapters everywhere we have one. We are a "Patch Club" but we do not wear Rockers or pretend to be outlaw and we never will. We have over the years been labelled as an Outlaw Club by Publicans, Fathers, News Reporters and their Papers. Oh and don't forget our Qld Police Force. But we bare to differ! We have members who may have made mistakes in their lives and payed the penalty for it. Members wear our Patch to remind us and those around us of who we are and our devotion we hold to our Brotherhood and our Way Of Life! Never do we wear them in Taxi's, Buses or Cars/Cages and as times change it looks like Hotels and some other Businesses do not want Club Patches in them either. So far we have never been turned away by any publican. Yes... our club has associated with other Clubs of all types and descriptions over the years and some of our Members have built long term friendships with members from these organisations. But we the Vagabonds are nothing like them. We are not a Religious, Political or a Military group. We have our own Constitution, Rules and Beliefs. We have also at one time been Incorporated in Qld. The club benefited very little from it so we discontinued paying the Government its ransom money as we know who we are and answer only to ourselves! Of course times change and we may well decide to go back down that road if it is for the best interest of our club. Our membership is made up from Australian men and we consider their families are our family. We respect each others commitments to their families and do not get between man and wife. Our Members and Associates come from all walks of life. From Factory workers to Council bus drivers, electricians and the list goes on. We defiantly DO NOT have Bank Robbers, Gangsters, Drug Manufacturers or even members of the Police Force. Why not Police you ask? Well its very simple. Members of the Police take an oath to uphold Law and order and to protect Citizens. They are NEVER off duty and are always on the outlook for criminals. We are a family orientated club and members have sons. Young fellers tend to make mistakes and most of these mistakes can be sorted and fixed by a Father stepping in and repairing anything the son has done without giving his son a criminal record to carry around his neck for the rest of his life.
The common ground for us is our motorcycles, adventure and our families. Our motorcycles being the glue that hold us together. Over the years our members have held honours such as being Godfathers to each others children. The best man and grooms men for one another at weddings and these days our proudest accomplishment. We have fathers and sons riding side by side together where fathers and sons belong! We have Associate Members from all around Australia and also around the world. We have these Associates and friends stopping in on their travels. Sometimes staying a night and making good use of our facilities. Like our Vagabonds Bunkhouse. We meet these people and they quickly understand us and our way of life! They soon want to support us. We ride anywhere we want when we want as free Australians. With the intention of riding over every inch of our country with what ever motorcycles it takes to complete our ride ambitions. Membership in the Vagabonds MC as a Full Member is for Male bike owners who Ride road registered bikes over 650cc of any Make. We do not discriminate against women in fact we love our girls the mothers of our children. We just see it as a mans job to provide and protect them and our children. Membership here on this Web Site is very different. It is for our Members, Families, Friends both Male and Female and not to forget our Associates world wide. We organise day rides and overnight runs once a month or for the long weekends. In fact any other times permitted. We camp out or stay at motels, caravan parks ect all depending on the weather and distances traveled. We do not conspire to over through any organisations, businesses or other Clubs OR society itself when we are together as a Club. We wish to simply exist and enjoy and share our way of life with other like minded people. Due to this way of life involving motorcycles we sadly over the years have lost 2 of OUR club Brothers to road accidents. R.I.P Banger and R.I.P Brian BTTE GBNF VFFV. With respect to the memories of our 2 brothers. We hold Memorial Runs every year on their dates they left for the Vagabonds MC Forever Chapter. We gather to celebrate the time they shared with us and we ride their favorite rides.
