Footnotes:

1% club: The genesis of this phrase dates back to the famous 1947 Hollister riot. Allegedly, the AMA (American Motorcycle Association) had commented that 99% of motorcycle riders were citizens who conformed to the law and that only 1% were outlaws (not to be confused with Outlaws Motorcycle Club).

Many motorcycle clubs that have been associated with organized crime, and have had run-ins with law enforcement agencies use the 1% diamond patch and are commonly referred to as the one percenter motorcycle club (also called an outlaw biker group); More about this here. Some popular 1% clubs are Outlaws MC (a very dominant club), Hells Angels (the main rival group of the outlaws), Pagan Motorcycle Club and Black Pistons MC. The motorcycle subculture in Florida has seen various gangs over the years

MC (Motorcycle Club): The term Motorcycle Club (MC) does carry a meaning outside and beyond the usual English definition of it. It is a popular term in the Outlaw and 1% motorcycling subculture where it is often used by motorcycling clubs which have had a history in organized crime. Such clubs (MCs) often denote these by wearing what are called colors — essentially a 3-piece patchwork.

However, not all motorcycling clubs who use the term MC are necessarily an Outlaw motorcycle club or a 1% club. But it wouldn’t be wrong to say that all dangerous biker gangs are one percenters.

Harleys: It goes with saying that most riders in various clubs swear by their Harley Davidson Motorcycle or a custom chopper. Harley David Motorcycles enjoy a disproportionately high popularity among MC riders who in mainstream culture are known to promote the use of cruiser motorcycles.
