A man in Kansas City had what could be described as the worst day ever. KCTV news in Kansas City reported that a man was transporting methamphetamine when he began to race another motorcycle rider. The man lost control of his bike and wrecked. When the man hit the ground, a pistol tucked into his waistband discharged, shooting him in the hip. The man fell to the ground, spun a few times, and was then hit by a car which fled from the scene.
Police say the man was transported to an area hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He will be charged with drug possession.
Outlaw motorcycle clubs, also known as one percenters, are biker gangs that are considered “outlaw” because they are not sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and do not adhere to their rules. Instead, one percenter clubs (the name comes from an AMA comment that 99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens) have their own set of bylaws which may or may not condone illegal activities. Regardless of their bylaws, their 1% status reflects an outlaw sense of pride. Below is a collection of the more notable Outlaw motorcycle club patches.
