Early in the game, the games protagonist Johnny Klebitz, will usually follow a group of bikers led by the chapter leader Billy Grey. The player is required to stay close to the group of bikers as they move to their destination during missions. When following bikers, every minute or so a Lost Brotherhood logo will appear in the convoy somewhere. The player can move their bike into the logo and stay there for a few seconds to have their Health and bike health restored. If the player already has full health then they will receive Body Armor instead. The player can hear the bikers talk if they stay in formation and if the player goes ahead of the convoy leader then the leader will yell at the player to get back in formation.


Later in the game after Billy Grey's arrest, Johnny will lead bikers. This operates the same as following except that any bikers that the player leads will follow the player instaed. If they fall too far behind then they will respawn near the convoy again.
