Yeah, I know this is not really Metal related but since I don't frequent any biker forums and Google didn't really answer my question I decided to ask here.

What's up with patches like this 99%er one here below? Is it a reaction to the common misconception that every biker is a criminal or what is it? 1%er patches I've seen around but I just noticed one 99%er today and since I don't know any bikers I thought I'd ask here. There are bound to be a few bikers on here that might be able to answer this.

Yes, I do realize I might be really late to the game on this one. It happens.

I don't know. Right after posting the question above I stumbled upon this blog here and I guess, although it is a statement, it's not as political as the one you pointed out.

That patch doesn't have anything to do with Occupy.

Doesn't this all stem from some FBI funded research from forever ago that came to the conclusion that only 1% of bikers were criminals? Judging from that quote you posted that would seem to be the case. 1%ers sport their patches to show that they consider themselves outlaws and these guys I assume do this to display the opposite...

Either way, weird topic for a metal forum. Laughing

1% ers were Hell's Angels who had earned their colours (i.e. were genuine Hell's Angels) who had committed murder. As far as I understand it.

1% er means you are a member of a Outlaw club IE a M.C.

Top and bottom rockers etc etc...

HA/Outlaws/bandidos/Finks etc etc...

I think you are way off mate. The 1%er is a fully patched member of an MC.

the 1% signifies being an Outlaw biker (i.e. HA, Outlaws, Mongols, etc). It's not worn by a specific club.

You can be fully patched without being a 1% er. Not all MCs are involved with illegal activities.

I can confirm this. I know an MC made up of cops who are fully patched. Not to say cops don't participate in illegal activities but since they are pretty visible I would think they do not.

Wrong
First you hang a round
Then you have to get asked to prospect by a sponsor
Then you do that up to two years or longer the club votes on giving full patch
They have other patches for crimes that they have committed

The real crime is what happened to Ministry.

I saw a documentary about this a while ago, that's exactly what the "expert" said.

I don't know any bikers, but after reading Hunter S. Thompson's Hell's Angels book, I'm glad I don't know of those 1%ers.

I thought this thread would be about patch vest with way too much patches on them. Laughing
