The YesBikers aim is to raise the profile and further the cause of the Scottish independence movement by supporting independence campaigners, events and rallies. We do this by touring the cities and towns of scotland helping out and attending Independence events.
There is no formal membership or subscription to the yesbikers.
If you ride with us once, either upfront or as pillion, you can call yourself a YesBiker.

YesBikers are an inclusive organisation, membership is open to anyone, and will not discriminate against anyone on any grounds (other than being a yoon).
We will attempt to attend/consider attending all Scottish independence related events no matter of organiser or location.
As there must be a line between what we can and cannot attend. We will not attend non indy related events as the YesBikers, however any YesBiker is free to attend any event they choose and we may share others events on the pages by request if appropriate.
We may organise our own events or rideouts in support of Scottish independence.
We may attend motorcycle events to raise the profile of the YesBikers.
We will always endeavour to provide routes several days before any organised event.
Where possible a member will do a trial ride of the route prior to any event.
The committee will liaise with police for events where appropriate.
When riding with the yesbikers obey the rules of the road, it’s your licence and our reputation on the line.

We are non party political and do not support any political parties or party events.
