What is your definition of a 1% biker?

I have heard many different stories and opinions, so what is yours? Have you had an experience with a 1%'er?

To me the 1%'ers are the ones that belong to outlaw motorcycel clubs requiring an initiation and generally live outside the law. The outlaws, Hells Angels, Diablos , and Iron Horsemen come to mind.

If everyone is born with an a--hole then why are there more a--holes than people. My definition of a 1%er.

The problem with closed-minded people is that their mouths are always open.

To be look at as a 1%er = Useless lowlife.
To consider yourself a 1%er = Idiot! (or baffoon in some cases)

The term biker should be reserved for one percenters, members of outlaw m/c groups, their friends & affiliates. These are nasty people who trade in drugs, human flesh, & violence. Give them plenty of room; they consider themselves soldiers and are dangerous. Trust me, they still exist.
A motorcyclist is a "civilian" that owns & operates a motorcycle in a legal manner.

They're not as noticeable as they used to be but m/c's and gangs are still around. The ****'s Angels, Outlaws, Mystic 7, Nomads, Banditos, Pagans, & Mongols are among the most infamous and still quite active.
I repeat, they are dangerous people.
Mess with the bull, you'll get the horns, etc.

I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.
I was happy in the midst of dangers and inconveniences.

Those who think that 99% of bikers aren't "real bikers" because they aren't clones of themselves.

Simply, a 1%er is an outlaw...does not abide by the laws of our Country...and usually does not work for a lviing, but takes from others who do work...

OMG, I speed!! I am an outlaw and a 1%er!!!! oh, but I worked for a living...
