What are the benefits of reading these biker quotes?

Bikers have their slang and even hand signals!

Even if you aren’t a hard-core biker and are more of a weekend warrior, you can relate to some of these biker quotes.

These biker quotes will help you:

  • Understand more about people who might differ from you
  • Gain a new perspective on life
  • Come up with the perfect social media captions

Bikers not only have their slang, many often are members of clubs.

Some clubs are AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) sanctioned, while others are known as “outlaw clubs.”

The term outlaw club doesn’t mean the clubs engage in illegal activity, just that they follow their bylaws and not those set forth by the AMA.

Which of these biker quotes is your favorite?

While the term outlaw club doesn’t automatically mean that bikers are breaking the law, the U.S. Department of Justice defines “outlaw motorcycle gangs” (OMG) as “organizations whose members use their motorcycle clubs as conduits for criminal enterprises.”

You might have seen the members of some clubs with a 1% patch on their vests.

These “one percenters” are making a statement that refers to an alleged comment by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA).

The AMA supposedly said that 99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, implying the last one percent were outlaws.

The AMA denies having a record of making such a statement to the press and claims that the story is a misquote.

According to the Justice Department, there are four MCs (motorcycle clubs) that they consider being OMGs: the Hells Angels, the Pagans, the Outlaws, and the Bandidos.

These are known as “The Big Four.”

There are a lot of fun perks to riding on a motorcycle, which bikers will often tell you about, as you can see in these biker quotes.

Things like that rush of speeding down the open highway, the sense of freedom, and the hint of danger are all part of the appeal.
