The motorcycling sense of 1%, comes from a supposed 1948 statement by the American Motorcycle Association that ninety-nine percent of motorcyclists are good people enjoying a clean sport, and it is only one percent who are antisocial barbarians.

This was following the infamous Holister Riots, where 4000 bikers turned up for a party, everyone had a great time but it was 'spoiled' by 1% of the party goers.
