About Motorcycle Patches


Motorcycle club patches are worn by bikers and are used to signify their club membership. There are many different types of biker patches, and some of them can have multiple meanings.

Biker Club and Association Patches

Biker Association patches are one piece, while biker club patches are usually two piece patches. In both cases the patch is placed at the back center of the leather jacket or vest. The patch usually consists of the club name and logo.

Sometimes motorcycle clubs come out with annual patches. These are small patches that state how long you have been a club member. They are usually a rectangle shape with the year embroidered on the patch. Annual patches are usually sewn on near the main club patch.

Title and Road Name Patches

Title patches denote the biker’s position in the club. These club positions can be President, Vice President, secretary, sergeant-at-arms, etc. The positions will usually indicate their place in the club or the club chapter.

The name or road patches can have the biker’s real name or moniker. This moniker can be a name that was given to them by other club members.

For identification purposes these name patches are worn on the vest left side above the heart. The club position is placed below the name.

Memory Patches

Memory patches are in honor of deceased members. These patches can be placed anywhere on the vest. Some bikers will sew the patch by the bottom of the vest. This lets them add more if needed. Other bikers prefer to scatter these memorial vests all around.

Travel Patches

Travel patches are worn by bikers to denote where they have been. These patches also serve as mementos of the place or the event. They can be placed anywhere on the vest.

Charity Run Pins

Charity run pins are given to bikers who take part in charity runs. These pins feature the charity name, the date, and the club or association that hosted the event.

Rally Badges or Rally Pins

Rally badges are handed out to bikers who go to a bike rally. The rally is very similar to the run. The one difference is that rallies can last over two nights.

Flag Patches

Flag patches have two meanings. They can refer to the biker’s country of origin or family tree. The patch flag can also refer to the motorcycle’s origin.

Outlaw Club Patches

There are many types of outlaw patches. Among the most well known are the 1%er patch, the number 13 and those with wings. The origin of the 1%er is not clear. Some claim it stems from the statement made by the American Motorcyclist Association that 99% of bikers are obedient to the law.

There are many other types of motorcycle club patches that you can find online. You can also have some custom made for your group or organization.
