    has anyone joined this club. i got this in the mail. if you pay 12 bucks a year, they send you gear and add-ons for the bike and you send your feedback by rating it. i was wondering if its worth it, or if there is any fine print i might have missed.

    Googled their name and it looks like they are selling magazines with the membership.

    Same as North American Hunting Club, Got the Magazine, every so often, for two years, no samples and had to theaten to kill some jack ##s in India to take my name off the list I no longer am sending money,I don't want your sometimes magazine at my door, I don't owe you anything and stop telling me I overpaid and u want to apply some of it to a lifetime membership. Yes I had a bad time. On the other side, some jack that works in our company heard through the vine I was a gun nut, He gets free stuff all the time, sent me An AR high viz sight that sells for 60$. asked me just to give him some feedback. SO just like Publishers Clearing house, I guess someone wins. Just never ME.

    just consider your 12.00 as a magazine subscription. you will never see the gear and add ons. and if you cancel the magazine they will send bills forever.

    I would say that cobberchobber is correct about the B.S. Iam a life member of the NAHC and they bug the he@% out of me all the time wanting me to buy stuff.and all the free stuff always has strings attached. , LiddleBen

    Been there done that, got the jacket, but no free gear. And yes, there is always the amassing members only deals that they offer. You can buy a $20 knife with there logo on it for only $50.

    Yes, I have dealt with this to. NAFC North American Fishing Club. I have been a life member for about 15 years. I joined basicly just for the magazine. I have yet to receive something that they didn't want to bill you for. My biggest problem is they send you stuff for 10 day free trail, then keep it or pay the bill. Then if you send it back they charge like $7 shipping & handling to ship it back. And when you do send it back they still send bills for the item.
    I still get the magazine. But I called them a couple years ago and told them not to send me any products. But about once a year they still will send a book or vidio. I don't open it. because if you do it cost to ship it back. I just refuse it at the post office, and return to sender.

    Motorcycle Rider Club of America, is the same parent company as NAFC & NAHC.
    They are out to make money from you.
    Do what you like.
    My advice is to not to join this organization.
    Do something better with your money. Join AMA or ABATE if you want to join a riding organization.

    Good Luck & Good Riding

    That's why I think that they should not be allowed to say "FREE".
    What they REALLY mean is "AT NO ADDITIONAL COST".

    For example, if they tell you that you will receive a "free" fishing knife after you purchase a magazine, then the knife wasn't really free, because you had to purchase the magazine to get the knife.

    I thought the definition of the word FREE meant without obligation.

    I, also, have had the same experiences with the North American Hunting Club, North American Fishing Club, and National Street Machine Club. I finally got to the point where I just kept the videos. They will send you bills and return envelopes for about 6 mos, and then leave you alone. You will receive nothing but the magazines from that point forward. That was what I joined for anyway. Was a member of the NAFC and NAHC for about 5 years each and never received any trial products. NSMC sent me some kind of pills to put in my fuel and a mileage chart to keep up with. I dropped the pills back in the mailer with the chart and informed them that I refused to use my vehicles for a guinea pig for products that may damage my fuel system. Nothing from them since.
