Here's what I heard:
In the 1960s, at a meeting ot the American Motorcyclists Association, an AMA spokesman was railing against outlaw motorcycle gangs and he said something to this effect: "99% of motorcyclists are fine people, it's the 1% that give motorcycling a bad name."
A 1%ER patch means the wearer is in the group of outlaw motorcyclists who comprise 1% of motorcyclists.
