“OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is a slang term for banishment which is used by all 1%er outlaw motorcycle clubs when a member leaves the club of his own volition or is expelled, and the remaining members are not happy with the actual reason that the member left the club. In the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, the term “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is their version of being banished to motorcycle club member hell, for an ex-member that has been deemed “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is no longer allowed to associate with any member of the Bandidos nor attend any Bandido function.

In this expose of his life as a member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, Edward “Connecticut Ed” Winterhalder allows the reader a rare look into how major decisions were made by Bandido leaders all over the world, how the Bandidos expanded into the worldwide dynasty they are today, and how the Bandido machine operates on a day-to-day basis. 

While a member of the largest 1%er motorcycle club in the world, Connecticut Ed was privy to much information about the inside workings of the club and what the future held for it. Regularly assigned projects by the club’s international leader, he was responsible for defusing the war between the Hells Angels and Rock Machine in Canada, establishing new Bandido and support club chapters worldwide, organizing the club into a well-oiled machine, and mediating internal power struggles between club members. 

As founder, President and Secretary of the Bandidos’ Oklahoma chapter, for the first time in history, Connecticut Ed is your personal guide as you learn what it takes to establish a new Bandidos chapter and keep it running for the first few years of its life. In his thirty years of riding and/or associating with various 1%er outlaw motorcycle clubs, he gives the reader a unique inside look into the world of today’s 1%er motorcycle clubs. 

In his last few years with the Bandidos, Connecticut Ed realized that the club’s ideology was changing due to the fact that methamphetamine use was now becoming an accepted part of everyday club life. After failing to alter the destructive course the club was on, he left the Bandidos Oklahoma chapter in September 2003 “OUT IN GOOD STANDINGS”. But because of the wealth of information he possessed about the inner workings of the club, Connecticut Ed’s “out” status was changed to “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” by the world President of the Bandidos just before Thanksgiving 2003. Was he that much of a threat to the worldwide leadership of the Bandidos? Find out for yourself by reading this book……

In the early 1990s, Maurice “Mom” Boucher and his fellow Montreal Hells Angels, reputedly the most ruthless and vicious bikers in the world, subdued all comers except the tough-as-nails members of the Rock Machine. Founded by Salvatore Cazzetta, an ex-friend of Boucher, the Rock Machine had every intention of standing up against the Hells Angels. Seven years of bloody conflict, which left over 160 people dead and countless injured, was the result. Heavily outnumbered, the Rock Machine appealed to the worldwide Bandidos Motorcycle Club, who rivaled the Hells Angels in terms of membership and strength. In January 2000, the Rock Machine ceased to exist and became a probationary Bandidos chapter – the first to be established on Canadian soil. Biker Edward Winterhalder was assigned by the Bandidos to coordinate the transition. Although the stage had been set for an end to the biker war and a positive outcome for all, it was anything but. Starting with the arrest and unsuccessful deportation proceedings of Winterhalder by the Canadian authorities, more intrigue, assassinations, and double-crosses, Winterhalder found himself in a situation even he found impossible to control. In The Assimilation, Winterhalder – in collaboration with author Wil De Clercq – recalls his life and times as an outlaw biker; his personal involvement in the creation of the Quebec Bandidos; his friendship with the key players who made it happen; and his eventual disillusionment with, and exit from, the Bandidos Nation.
In den frühen 1990er Jahren unterwarfen Maurice „Mom“ Boucher und seine Kollegen von Montreal Hells Angels, angeblich die rücksichtslosesten und bösartigsten Biker der Welt, alle Ankömmlinge außer den knallharten Mitgliedern der Rock Machine. Gegründet von Salvatore Cazzetta, einem ex-freund von Boucher, hatte die Rock Machine die Absicht, sich gegen die Hells Angels zu behaupten. Sieben Jahre blutiger Konflikt mit über 160 Toten und unzähligen Verletzten waren die Folge. Die Rock Machine war zahlenmäßig stark unterlegen und appellierte an den weltweiten Bandidos Motorcycle Club, der es in puncto Mitgliederzahl und Stärke mit den Hells Angels aufnehmen konnte. Im Januar 2000 hörte die Rock Machine auf zu existieren und wurde ein Bandidos-Chapter auf Probe – das erste, das auf kanadischem Boden gegründet wurde. Biker Edward Winterhalder wurde von den Bandidos beauftragt, den Übergang zu koordinieren. Zwar waren die Weichen für ein Ende des Bikerkrieges und einen positiven Ausgang für alle gestellt, aber alles andere als. Beginnend mit der Festnahme und erfolglosen Abschiebung Winterhalders durch die kanadischen Behörden, weiteren Intrigen, Attentaten und Doppelkreuzen befand sich Winterhalder in einer selbst für ihn unkontrollierbaren Situation. In The Assimilation erinnert sich Winterhalder – in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Autor Wil De Clercq – an sein Leben und seine Zeit als Outlaw-Biker; seine persönliche Beteiligung an der Gründung der Quebec Bandidos; seine Freundschaft mit den Schlüsselspielern, die es möglich gemacht haben; und seine letztendliche Desillusionierung und sein Austritt aus der Bandidos Nation.


Au début des années 1990, Maurice “Mom” Boucher et ses camarades des Hells Angels de Montréal, réputés être les motards les plus impitoyables et les plus vicieux du monde, ont maîtrisé tous les arrivants, à l'exception des membres coriaces des Rock Machine. Fondée par Salvatore Cazzetta, un ex-ami de Boucher, la Rock Machine avait bien l'intention de tenir tête aux Hells Angels. Sept années de conflit sanglant, qui ont fait plus de 160 morts et d'innombrables blessés, en ont été le résultat. Largement en infériorité numérique, la Rock Machine a fait appel au Bandidos Motorcycle Club mondial, qui rivalisait avec les Hells Angels en termes de membres et de force. En janvier 2000, la Rock Machine a cessé d'exister et est devenue une section probatoire de Bandidos – la première à être établie en sol canadien. Le motard Edward Winterhalder a été désigné par les Bandidos pour coordonner la transition. Bien que le décor ait été planté pour la fin de la guerre des motards et une issue positive pour tous, c'était tout sauf. À commencer par l'arrestation et la procédure d'expulsion infructueuse de Winterhalder par les autorités canadiennes, plus d'intrigues, d'assassinats et de doubles croix, Winterhalder s'est retrouvé dans une situation qu'il trouvait même impossible à contrôler. Dans The Assimilation, Winterhalder – en collaboration avec l'auteur Wil De Clercq – se souvient de sa vie et de son époque en tant que motard hors-la-loi; son implication personnelle dans la création des Bandidos de Québec; son amitié avec les acteurs clés qui l'ont rendu possible; et sa désillusion éventuelle avec la nation Bandidos et sa sortie de celle-ci.
A principios de la década de 1990, Maurice “Mom” Boucher y sus compañeros Hells Angels de Montreal, supuestamente los motociclistas más despiadados y viciosos del mundo, sometieron a todos los participantes excepto a los miembros duros de Rock Machine. Fundada por Salvatore Cazzetta, un ex amigo de Boucher, Rock Machine tenía toda la intención de enfrentarse a los Hells Angels. El resultado fue siete años de sangriento conflicto, que dejó más de 160 muertos e innumerables heridos. Muy superado en número, el Rock Machine apeló al Bandidos Motorcycle Club en todo el mundo, que rivalizaba con los Hells Angels en términos de membresía y fuerza. En enero de 2000, Rock Machine dejó de existir y se convirtió en un capítulo de Bandidos en prueba, el primero en establecerse en suelo canadiense. Los Bandidos asignaron al motociclista Edward Winterhalder para coordinar la transición. Aunque se había preparado el escenario para el fin de la guerra de los motociclistas y un resultado positivo para todos, fue todo lo contrario. Comenzando con el arresto y los procedimientos de deportación fallidos de Winterhalder por parte de las autoridades canadienses, más intrigas, asesinatos y traiciones, Winterhalder se encontró en una situación que incluso él encontró imposible de controlar. En The Assimilation, Winterhalder, en colaboración con el autor Wil De Clercq, recuerda su vida y su época como motociclista fuera de la ley; su implicación personal en la creación de los Bandidos de Quebec; su amistad con los jugadores clave que lo hicieron posible; y su eventual desilusión y salida de la Nación Bandidos.
