1%ers ?

Anyone ever see a 1%er riding a Triumph now days ? I have seen a few older pictures of some of those guys on Triumphs but not anymore.

The 1% can't join a M/C with anything less than a Harley. They have to sign over there ride to the club to show respect and loyalty. To each there own.

Not true, I know both 1%ers and former members. The guys I know all ride Harleys, but that not strictly a requirement, and several said they started on Triumphs. Must be over 500cc, I do know, for at least one club. One I know has an old tattoo on his arm ABMOCVP, I asked him what it stood for. "American British Motorcycle Owners Club-Vice President, LOL.

.+1 Kidd, ...I believe someone said years ago (maybe in the 1950's), that 1% of motorcycle riders give the rest a bad name, hence the 1% figure.
...Iam comfortable on my Triumph , lets not ruin the image by converting it !
