I look at patch wearers like I look at Grizzly bears.....from a distance if possible, with a good pair of binocs. I won't bother them if they don't bother me, and I take all steps to make sure our contact is minimized. If they pull in to a campground, say, we leave.... instantly. I don't hang out in biker bars, and I don't try to "be cool" around them; I don't pretend to be something I'm not.... If I have to, I speak to them softly and with the respect I'd show anyone else. Most of the time, they are preoccupied with each other.
We think we've noticed, however, that they are friendlier to Wingers than they used to be -- the people they really despise are the weekend Harley biker wannabe! "The bad-arse dentist or lawyer with his freshly laundered do-rag wrapped around his silly head! They hate those guys, and, in truth, I don't like them much, either!
