Joan Berry is one of the only 2 current women members in the Jolly Rogers Motorcycle club. Her can-do attitude has won her the support of the faithful and propelled her to the office of Madame Secretary. She regularly participates in club rides and activities and is a bonding force within the group. Joan rides a 2012 Harley Davidson Softail Convertible, although it doesn’t currently sport one of her custom paint jobs, it just may in the near future.
An accomplished airbrush artist and custom motorcycle painter her skills are in constant demand. She and her husband (also an Officer in the Jolly Roger’s MC) have a thriving Harley Davidson repair shop in Burien and a Shell Service Station in White Center. Joan was born and raised right here in South Seattle.
“I grew up in this community. I spent many a weekend at the Jolly Roger’s hill climb. I feel it’s a privilege to be a member in a club so steeped in local history. I remember vividly my first ride on a Harley Davidson it was a 1968 Shovelhead chopper. It belonged to my best friends dad, I was 11 and it impacted my life in a powerful way. That was 1971 and it was all Harley Davidsons from that point on, except for my first dirt bike- a Honda CR80 with a beefed up engine.
I feel it’s important to preserve the history of the Jolly Rogers MC and also to embrace the modern version of the club which is now predominately street riding. As Secretary I feel the difficulty of preserving our roots yet taking the club forward. If you are over 21 and ride a motorcycle come see what the Jolly Roger’s are all about at The Chelan Restaurant the second Wednesday of every month at 7:30 pm.”
The Jolly Rogers Motorcycle Club is one of Seattle's oldest motorcycle clubs. The club once numbered 100 including a woman's division and a motorcycle stunt-and-drill team that rode white Harleys in the Seattle Seafair parade.
