Default Patches and their meanings

Just wondering what some of the patches mean and what they mean to clubs.

If you're really wonderin', do a little research. There's a ton of info out there. Oh, I've got an idea, next time you see a patched MC member, HA, Bandito, Pagan, etc., just walk up to him, and ask him, "what does that patch mean?" Let us know how that goes.

Man thats a loaded question, When I was a cop in eastern NC I had the privilage of attending several classes on outlaw MC's. As we had at the time the Pagans in Havelock, and the HA in Durham. I could probably type for quite awhile on the subject but, A guick google search would probably answer all your questions and then some. I presently ride with a firefighters MC.

I actually did that to a Mongol patchholder at the HD dealer in Belgrade.

He was cool about it. We chatted for a few minutes. He didn't mind at all.

Read something from an outlaw mc course for LEOs. If I'd been grading the course, it woulda got a failing grade. Way too many errors! Some of 'em were pretty funny, though.

There is always that one poster that has to pounce on someone asking a legit question. Maybe he is asking on here so he doesn't accidently cause disrespect to anyone. And by the way its not "Bandito" its Bandido.

But as far as the patches mostly just a bunch of acronyms for their credos. Maybe patches for events they witnesses like Laughlin. LEs have theories on the different patches. I recommend go to amazon and looking for Motorcycle club books there are tons of good ones.

My patches usually mean I have a hole in my jeans.
