The only thing I wouldn't buy is the large jacket back patch. Seems some biker clubs may be offened unless the Confederation of Clubs, or something like that, approves it in your area. Don't ask me to explain why, but wearing it may cause you some problems with some bikers.

I like the new "It's the right thing to do" patch. The bill on the hat I got is crooked and I look a bit goofy wearing it. I like the windshield banner, which I hold in place with a bungee cord.

Am I missing something here? Do you mean to tell me that if I wear what is considered, the "wrong type" of patch, I am suppose to be concerned that one group or another might be offended?

Is this something new? Sounds to me like "street gang" mentality. I must live in a vacuum. Never for one second did I ever think that as an adult motorcycle rider, I had to be concerned about stupid patches. I'm glad I don't wear any. :shock:

In the world/life of the outlaw bikers, such as the Hell's Angles, Banditos,
Mongols, etc. the 3 piece back patch must be earned. You start in the club as a prospect and must do many "things", often illegal, to be "patched in".
Wearing a 3 piece patch that has not been approved by the "ruling" outlaw motorcycle gang in a area, at a mimimum will get you a severe beating, if not killed!
These are some of the very people the Christian Motorcyclist Association try to bring the Word of God and the plan of salvation to.
If you would like an education on the world of outlaw bikers get the book called Under and Alone by William Queen. A story of an uncover officer that was Patched into the Mongol Motorcycle club.

At a lot of places during the Sturgis Bike Week there will be signs on the door "no colors allowed" This year I saw some that said "except PGR"

The PGR site says not to put anything on the back of a vest or jacket except the single patch.

You should be okay with just the one patch on there.

For those wondering about the Confederation of Clubs, Google search it. Plenty of info on there.
