Welcome to the official web site of the Maricopa County, AZ chapter of the Roughnecks MC. Our club is a brotherhood of active and retired Law Enforcement, Public Safety, and Military Personnel. We all risk our lives and serve our communities in one way or another.
The Roughnecks MC is a club consisting of motorcycles or trikes with 500+ CC engines. We all live by Old School values and the rule of the Wild West Lawman!
We live and ride for the wind in our face and the tight bond of brotherhood amongst those of us who risk our lives protecting and serving our communities and our country.
We RESPECT ALL colors and clubs, so we expect the SAME. Although we wear an Arizona bottom rocker, we claim no territory nor do we interfere with those that do. Our bottom rocker only signifies what state we are from.
The Roughnecks MC grew from common interests and visions shared by our founding members in 2002 in Scottsdale, AZ where the first organizational meeting took place. By 2003, the Roughnecks MC became a reality and grew to our first expansion chapters in Sacramento and San Diego, CA. We currently have 55 chapters in the U.S. and Canada and are listed as a limited liability corporation.
The Roughnecks Motorcycle Club (RMC) is a non-profit, independent and charity-oriented organization.
