The Map List of Motorcycle Clubs by State: Dominant MCs

Despite the rise of cars and four-wheel vehicles, motorcycles remain one of America’s most dominant transportation means – both as a necessity and a choice of entertainment and hobby. 

Thousands of motorcycle clubs have been founded since forever, gathering devoted motorbike enthusiasts from the same state together. 

My insightful guide will deliver a full list of dominant motorcycle clubs by the state for wide-eyed beginners. Keep scrolling for more!

The History of Motorcycle Clubs 

The first motorbike clubs date back to the early 1900s and broke through during and after WW2 for people who loved rebellion and adventure. Though many outlaw MCs were involved in drug trafficking and criminal activities then, they are mostly legal today.

History of Motorcycle Clubs 

During WW2, these gangs drew in millions of thriller-seekers craving an adrenaline rush. Plus, after the war, veterans found it extremely difficult to return to their normal civilian life, as they longed for something exciting to fight for, hence the increase in yearly motorcycle club members. 

By then, most clubs started to adopt a strong, rebellious image and aggressive attitudes. That, coupled with the bikes’ dangerous nature, did not leave a very positive impression among Americans, and dangerous biker gangs involved with murder and drug smuggling like Hollister and Hells Angels motorcycle clubs only fueled that perception further.

But that is a thing of the past; nowadays, most motorbike clubs comply with the AMA rules (short for American Motorcyclist Associations) and open the door to law-abiding members only. 

Even outlaw MCs are no longer inherently engaged in illegal activities despite their titles; they are simply a group of people from different ages and sectors with a shared passion for riding.

Types of Motorcycle Clubs

Three types of MCs include: Outlaw motorcycle clubs (tough image), Official clubs (holding events), and Unofficial clubs (more informal). Despite different rules, the overall consensus and purpose is to give riders a place to experience and discuss their riding passion.

  • Outlaw Biker Clubs (or One Percenter motorcycle club): Known for aggressive, tough images, members from outlaws motorcycle club usually ride Harley-Davidson and require entry endorsement for every member. 

These rebels motorcycle club used to be criminal enterprises back then. But now, under the influence of law enforcement agencies, outlaws MC have become as law-abiding as any other bikie gang around the U.S.

  • Official Clubs: They hold organized rides and events throughout the states under lawful reporting obligations. Thanks to their status, their members can even receive public benefits (discounts at certain shops, for instance).
  • Unofficial Clubs: A more informal version of official clubs, they require much fewer reporting requirements and have a much looser structure.

How to Join A Motorcycle Club

Many motorcycle clubs have application forms on their web pages; your only job is to scour which club suits you best, read their terms and agreements, fill in the form, and wait for their representatives to contact you.

For some informal, unofficial clubs, you may cut the route short by asking for help from your acquaintance or friend who is already a motorcycle rider of the club. They can introduce you to the club’s organizer and lend you great support through the rest of the enrollment process.


America is home to numerous reputable motorcycling subcultures, so you never have to worry about not being able to find one in your state. Refer to my chart above to save hours of research, and feel free to write to me if you still have unresolved questions.
