1%er

"99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, and the last one percent were outlaws."

-source wikipedia


The term One Percenter is said to have been coined after an incident in Hollister, California in 1947[34][35] which was dubbed the Hollister riot. Whether an actual riot occurred is debatable,[36][37][38] but there was a motorcycle rally in Hollister from July 4 to July 6 of that year that was attended by about 4000 people. Several newspaper articles were written that, according to some attendees, sensationalized the event.[37][38][39] Life magazine ran an article that included a staged photo of a slovenly-looking man on a motorcycle with beer bottles piled under the wheels and a bottle in each of his hands.[40] The film The Wild One, starring Marlon Brando, was inspired by this event, and it became the first in a series of movies that depicted bikers and members of motorcycle clubs in this stereotypical manner. It has been reported that the press asked the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) to comment on the Hollister incident, and their response was that 99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, and the last one percent were outlaws. Thus was born the term "one percenter." The AMA now says they have no record of such a statement to the press, and call this story apocryphal.[41] They are also known as Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs or OMGs according to the ATF.[42]


are 1%ers still around???

Gangs? Perhaps.

Clubs? Whole different story.

Or just like every other "group" of any sort in history. They came to the realization that there is power in numbers.

True...but his statement isn't any less valid because of yours.

Gangs and clubs are very different.

1%ers are clubs - not gangs.

A gang is a group of three or more people who, through the organization, formation, and establishment of an assemblage, share a common identity.[2] In current usage it typically denotes a criminal organization or else a criminal affiliation
