WHAT IS BIKER ENTOURAGE?
Social motorcycling for urban creatives? Gotham gonzos 'n geeks on bikes? . . . Whatever you wanna call us, we think it's time to move beyond the handful of biker molds and bring the Motorcycle into the progress that's unfolding around us.

Let's start by recognizing what gives bikes their groundbreaking potential.
Riding can be a foray into godliness, more profound to an individual's experience than the discovery of the god particle. Motorcycles bring relativity theory into the personal, giving mortals the ability to start pushing the c of E=mc2. If the m stands for motorcycle and the E stands for Experience ... then we've got all bases covered. Add the human factor--the open minds and fierce hearts shared by bikers--to a fun, outside the box ethos, and we've got a concoction that's sure to push some envelopes and raise some eyebrows.

You don't have to ride to come aboard. We're seeking partnerships with event producers, performers, PR pros, web designers & creatives of all ilks.

Arrrrrggghhh! What r ya pointerin at!
BEnt Rev You: 2nd Annual NY Pirate Ride

A vast avast!
How was our pirate ride on September 19th? I could summarize it in one word, if there was a word that could combine epic, fun and retarded. So what the hell, I?ll invent one for the occasion ? it was EPFARDED.

In true Biker Entourage fashion, what the ride lacked in quantity it more than made up for in quality. Our two-wheelin? rapscallions ?n wenches were dressed to a T in pirate garb and ready to engage in the mayhem and plunder that was expected of them. Even our least-dressed buccaneer, Adrian--who presented with an eye patch and was fully expecting to be told to walk the plank--came prepared with a brigand's heart and a classic ride.
3 amigos, err I mean pirates
The Liberace of pirates, D?Artagnan (yes that is his real name) won the flamboyant pirate rockstar prize, with a poofie hairdo that would make a Jersey girl envious, and a century-old epee that sent sparks across the sidewalk, shudders through men?s hearts and quivers up women?s privates.

Aye and t?was a sight to see fellow rogue Jon ride in full pirate regalia atop an iron beast with huge bull's horns stickin out the side and a metal skull?s glowin? eyes starin? right through ya. Were he not so damn funny after talking to him, your first thought at seeing such a formidable sight could very well be . . . ?run?.

Jon ridin
We were joined by Ebony, aka Lady Wenchington aka the travelling unicorn, a fiery lass from down under who was brave enough to ride with us barnacleheads as a passenger. To our happy surprise, she ended up not being such a lady after all, distinguishing herself with the Eyeball ?N Skull Launcher Extraordinaire Medal of Dishonour, and unabashedly throwing herself into our sword fight like a bloodthirsty pro. Importantly, a new pirate term came into common usage that night thanks to her, the ?fuckwit?. Plus her and Adrian?s Aussie and Brit accents brought 17th century authenticity to the whole sordid affair.

Alyssa rode, swashed and buckled as hard as the rest of us. During our sword fight she was the business end of a creature ne?er seen before. After somehow swallowing fellow bandit Brad between her legs (now we know to take her boast of having crushed 50 men?s skulls between her thighs seriously), she transformed into an unstoppable beast that stood two pirates tall! Arrr we were shiverin in our timbers (when we weren?t laughing our asses off that is)!

Prior to his untimely appropriation by her murderous thighs, Brad once again laid claim to being BEnt?s winningest rider. Last time it was a vibrator. This time, a bottle of spiced rum. We figured if he could somehow combine the two it would make for a very interesting time. Twas his piratey rush onto the gates of Trinity Church that brought Captain Kidd?s spirit alive that night, and Brad the Talk Like A Pirate Pickup Line Contest victory.
Capn Kidd 1st Prize Matey!2nd Prize, Spongebob Pirate Booty

The Bearded One (aka Alex) on the other hand didn?t even have to act a pirate?s role, and we wondered how hard it was for him to assimilate to polite society on a daily basis. His swagger ?n pelvic sword-waivin? made him a shoe-in for second prize (a Spongebob Pirate?s Booty snack). His wicked, piratey exhortations to passenger Wenchington resulted in a maelstrom of bouncing eyeballs and skulls in Times Square upon both the hapless and willing.

Occupy Revs

During our first pirate ride in 2011, we encountered a large gathering of protesters a coupla blocks before our Trinity Church stop. Of course we beeped our horns and revved our engines at them, and received a loud, crowd-sourced hoorah! We later found out that this was two days into the historic Occupy Wall Street protest at Zuccotti Park.

Kidd-friendly

So this time around we stopped with suitable clamour and swords raised in tribute (either to these rebels or to the pirates of Wall Street, depending on your ideology).

Our pirate ride apparently inspired some bloggin' too, by the Travelling Unicorn (thetravellingunicorn.com/?p=343), Jean Zimmerman (jeanzimmerman.com/category/fashion), and a Ukrainian journalist we have yet to hear from.

Aye, any way ya slice it ya scurvy fuckwits, t?was an epfarded time for all!

Inclement Weather Policy (aka NP Policy)

For all levels of bikers, riding in the rain and inclement weather is an important skillset to learn. Bikers in other parts of the world (e.g. England, Germany) ride through rain and inclement weather as part and parcel of the biker experience. Here, when the weather gets crappy, rather than prepare for it with proper gear and a conservative rattitude (riding attitude) adjustment, we chump out.

Well here at Biker Entourage we don't chump out. At least not just because of rain. So unless there's something posted on this website calling off a ride or you're contacted yes the ride is on.

Having said that, use your own judgment. It is your Body and Life. If you feel it would be unsafe for you to ride because of your skill level, bc you're not feeling up to it, or bc the fortune teller who's always been on point tells you not to, then you are encouraged NOT to attend the ride. If however you're thinking of not attending because you don't want to get wet or because your pussy hurts then you are encouraged to get over it and join the few shivering, courageous souls you'll be proud to ride with.


Viva La Figa

HARNESSING THE CREATIVE & SOCIAL POWER OF THE MOTORCYCLE
Biker Entourage was initially started for rides, shits 'n giggles but has morphed into something far more alarming.

AN ILLUMINATI FOR GONZO BIKERS
Harnessing the creative potential, intelligence & success of our area's bikers, who've an engine roaring through their heart and the wind on their face (hopefully not from the rider in front).

MUTUAL SUPPORT
Based on the loyalty the motorcycle brings with it, including networking for projects, babysitters and bank jobs.


BIKES CHANGE EVERYTHING

Ever done interactive theater, Burning Man or Bike Kill? Add inspiration from stuff like psychogeography, sf0.org & Ingress and you've got rides and experiences that recognize how bikes can change eveything.
ALT REALITY GAME
A hella augmented reality adventure under development...It'll be nothing short of a two-wheeled epiphany.

Get an invite for this pioneering game's betta launch by signing on BEnt's email list


NO RULES . . . except these two:
Rule No. 1: If you're a biker--and you've survived everything that's trying to terminate you (or serve you up with an assfull of roadrash)--you deserve props no matter what you ride.

Rule No. 2: We've all got different philosophies in life, but the golden rule is RESPECT (mutual that is). No fighting, endagering other bikers, or any other squidlike/douchey behavior. If youre prone to this then BEnt aint for you.

SUGGESTED OPERATIONS

These are the events on the Suggested Operations table for this season. You're encouraged to organize any that interest you, or pitch one of your own to us:

Motorcycle Theater
A paradigm shift in participatory theater, where our bikes lead us to the novel and the unexpected. Theater that is experienced not from a stationary perspective but in all four dimensions, and that requires our active participation as coconspirators. Using the motorcycle's spacial and temporal superpowers can add exponentially to creative possibilities in performance art and theatrical experience. Encounters will include burlesque and other performances in unlikely places, an ad hoc street dance club, and other surprises.

Scavenger Hunt and Interdimensional Motoportation Ride
Romping around the city, where the challenges will include psychedelic clues, shots, the abduction of humans and other fun times. Oh yeah and interdimensional teleportation.

Three Dolla Charity Ride
Where bikers donate their rides for charity by giving willing civilians and other unsuspecting victims a ride for 3 dolla.

2nd Annual Talk Like Pirate Day Ride - (Thurs., Sept. 19, 2013)
"Clearly disturbed individuals clad in pirate gear ride across NYC's famous pirate landmarks throwing eyeballs at innocents, engaging in a mock swordfight outside Capt'n Kidd's residence, and raisin' a wee bit 'o hell".

Biker Ghoul's Parade
BEnt's costumed, two-wheeled participation in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade.

Green Machines
Let's break some preconceived notions about green initiatives. Here's one: the most popular environmentally friendly vehicles are the fastest and badest ones on the road. Motorcycles. Join BEnt as we take this one step further with a green ride including tree plantings, female worship & other Gaia-friendly activities.

S O H O W D O I G E T I N V O L V E D ?
This is just starting up, so the initiation process is a bit hazy. Like late mornings after a cheap bottle of tequila.
For now it's gonna work like this:
(1) JOIN UP FOR RIDES AND EVENTS. To get BEnt's alerts, get on our email list or join up on meetup.com/bikerentourage, facebook.com/bikerentourage or twitter.com/bikerentourage

(2) ORGANIZE RIDES AND EVENTS. Not talking about a ride to a bbq, but outside-the-box, creative, random, engaging rides and events with a creative, redeeming, or bizarre emphasis. You organize, BE will help at all phases.

Examples of ideas you can organize or participate in:
* Fashion Week and Motorcycles, Perfect Together (Yikes!)
* Redneck Ride - fishing, camping, a shooting range & a motogp screening
* Children's Cancer Center
* Visiting A Rider's Mom for Mother's Day (if you dont got a Mom no more)
* Motorcycle Poetry Slam
* Motorcycle Orchestra - music created solely from motorcycles
* Track or Stunting Lessons
* A magazine article / A reality show pitch
* Biker Games (ring toss, tricycle race, la tomatina, and pin the tail on the biker, meet an unarmed Hunter S. Thompson)
* Your fun, gonzo or preposterous idea here
