Law enforcement agencies have confiscated colors and other club paraphernalia of these types of clubs when they raid a clubhouse or the home of a MC member, and they often display these items at press conferences.
These items are then used at trial to support prosecution assertions that MC members perform criminal acts on behalf of their club.
While organizations may vary, the typical internal organization of a motorcycle club consists of a president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, road captain, and sergeant-at-arms (sometimes known as enforcer).
Localized groups of a single, large MC are called charters and the first charter established for an MC is referred to as the mother charter.
It has been said Outlaw clubs are often prominent at charity events, such as toy runs.
Charitable giving is frequently cited as evidence that these clubs do not deserve their negative media image.
In the United States, such motorcycle clubs (MCs) are considered "outlaw" not necessarily because they engage in criminal activity, but because they are not sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and do not adhere to the AMA's rules.
The three-piece patch consists of the club logo and the top and bottom patches, usually crescent shaped, which are referred to as rockers.
The president of the mother charter serves as the president of the entire MC, and sets club policy on a variety of issues.
Larger motorcycle clubs often acquire real estate for use as a clubhouse or private compound.
Hang-arounds and/or support clubs wear support patches with the club's colors.
A member must closely guard their colors, for allowing one's colors to fall into the hands of an outsider is an act of disgrace and may result in loss of membership in a club, or some other punishment.
