Well, I believe that I now understand why I had never heard of the FMRC. I do not "ride". I had planned on an early "mid-life" crisis purchase until about 5 months ago when my Brother-in-Law had some under-insured moron make an unprotected left turn in front of him at about 45mph. The resulting impact with both the passenger side of the Dodge Ram pickup, and the 100+degree asphalt in the intersection resulted in 15 days in Methodist Central ICU, and 4 months in a rehab-center. Clint has lost the use of his right arm, and will most likely never be able to walk again. He was very luckey. I have to suggest that no one wear a half-helmet... I will not go into all of his numerous injuries here.
Needless to say my "purchase" will now be in the form of a Harley Davidson F-250 Super Crew... I know, accidents happen... I need to support a family.
Can one be a member of FMRC and not actually ride??
i am not a member of fmrc. but i do intend to join them. i have been on a few rides with them. and to one of their meetings. these brothers are some of the best masons i have met. the chapter that i have been on rides with is led by Dennis cude. the brotherhood of the blue lodge on bikes. if you like to ride they are worth a look.
Found this earlier, the way I read the law, and I may be wrong, a Texas Mason can't be a member. I hope they get recognition the next time it comes up (next year or the year after I believe)
(art 505 sect 22. Participate in, approve, or aid in the formation of any organization predicating its membership on Masonic membership or in the formation of any local chapters or groups, by whatever name called, of any organization predicating membership on Masonic membership. It shall be a Masonic offense for any Texas Mason to be, remain, or continue as, a Member of any organization predicating its membership or affiliation on Masonic membership unless such organization is now currently approved or recognized in Article 225 or Article 225a.)
