Did you know that the American Motorcycle Association (AMA) was founded in 1924 as an organizing arm to promote motorcycle riding in America? Well, it sure was. It all started when a bunch of riders from the same area got together as one and rode their motorcycles with the wind. There was even a movie about the AMA in 1947 that was filmed in California called “The Wild Ones” and Marlon Brando was the star in the cast. That just shows how long ago this all started. The 1%’s were banned from the AMA events and functions. What the 1%’rs did to designate themselves outside the AMA was to cut there club patch into three separate pieces.
