Motorcycle clubs have inspired the youths of America to live their Hollywood dream. Usually in this dream, the rider is racing on top of a custom motorcycle clad in leather and motorcycle patches while wearing aviators and a lit cigarette dangling from the lips. Some motorcycle enthusiasts decorate their laptops, phone cases, backpacks, motorcycle saddlebags, and fuel tanks with biker patch stickers.

While on the one hand this looks and sounds cool, it is important to know that most of these motorcycle clubs are 1% outlaw MCs, dangerous, and have a negative influence on youngsters. Involved in various criminal activities, these 1% motorcycle clubs have been the bane of society since the 1950s.

These motorcycle clubs attract motorcyclists with their power, lifestyles, and badass motorcycle club patches. The members then engage in unlawful behavior for the betterment of their own clubs.

Quite recently, a few incidents were reported where members of these outlaw motorcycle clubs were found guilty of racketeering, violence, murder, and drug smuggling. But even though law enforcers actively try to stop them, these motorcycle clubs are strong and difficult to get rid of.

So does that mean you cannot go for adventurous rides with a group of motorcyclists sporting leather jackets or vests with custom biker patches?

The good news according to the American Motorcycle Association is that 99% of motorcycle clubs are law-abiding and safe.

Just steer clear of the 1% outlaw motorcycle clubs and their motorcycle club patches, and you will avoid getting in trouble with their members and police officers.
