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. What’s your favorite thing about riding a motorcycle? Let us know in the comment section below.
