Learning About Biker Patches

 

Biker patches make it easy for an outsider to tell what club a biker belongs to. Some might only see the patches as a way to tell affiliation, but there is often more meaning in the design of the patches.

 

One Through Three Piece Patches.

 

The one-piece patch is used for basis motorcycle affiliation; while the two-piece patch normally means there is an affiliation with a club. However, this is not always the case, this is the case for the outlaw motorcycle club.

 

The American Motorcycle Association does not recognize outlaw clubs. Each clubs design is different from the next. However, crescent shapes are almost always used at the top and bottom of the design. This type of design is called a rocker. It should be understood that not all three-piece patches belong to outlaw bikers.

 

Designs Most Commonly Used.

 

The 1% patch is a reference to the common belief that 99% of bikers obey the law. Another commonly seen patch is the Ace of Spades, this patch means the biker is willing to fight. A flag patch is in reference to where a biker is from.

 

Club rank can be seen on biker patches as well. Club ranks are much like any organization with a president and a vice president along with other cabinet members.

 

More Patches.

 

Meanings of patches vary by club; many clubs have a patch with wings. Many different design aspects are used with the wings and these generally depict crimes or acts that a biker has committed.

 

The Meaning of the 13 Patch.

 

Number patches can carry a variety of meanings. The number 13 on a patch is most commonly used in place of the letter M, the 13th letter of the alphabet. M carries many meanings depending on the club. Marijuana, methamphetamine and motorcycle are common meanings of the letter M when it is placed on a patch. More often than not the M carries a hidden meaning, known only to people within the club. Know the meaning of biker patches in http://www.ehow.com/about_5095582_meaning-biker-patches_.html.

 

Other Patch Meanings.

 

The Men of Mayhem patch is sported by members of a club who have killed someone for their club. Patches are also given to members who attend certain rallies, many of the rallies that are held are done so for charity work.

 

A skull and crossbones on a patch normally means a biker is a fighter and might have killed someone. Like all patches the skull and crossbones can carry other meanings, such as crimes committed on behalf of the club.

 

Different meanings can come from the same patch, this is all depending on what club is wearing the motorcycle patches. Although the designs vary, they all carry some kind of symbolism but normally those symbolizes are only known by its members.
