The McHenry County Road Pirates riding group is a conglomeration of individuals who have banded together to ride & enjoy our motorcycles; have a good time as friends; and savor the open road and the many eating establishments along the way.
The Pirates' Mission statement incorporates the above; along with our desire to reach out to the community, to support charity organizations in the area, assisting in making their events successful. This is accomplished thru volunteering our time and providing other support, as available. All members mutually support fellow Pirates and the charitable organizations; thru respect for each other and the honorable causes for which assistance is given.
The Pirates are governed by our Articles of Agreement; which were established, and amended as needed, only by a majority vote of eligible members. A group of five Pirates, elected by the membership, act as a steering committee for the group.
The Pirates are registered with the State of Illinois as a Not-For-Profit Corporation and registered with the IRS as a tax exempt 501(c)7 - Social Club.
The Pirates are a proud member of The Posse; an association of local and regional motorcycle organizations in the Greater Chicagoland Area.
