Why do some bikers were 1 spur?
The myth supposedly began back in the days of the American Calvary. When a soldier would die, after his burial his comrades would take his boots and face them backwards in the stirrups of the saddle on his horse. They would then ride away wearing only one spur out of respect for the fallen soldier. The motorcycling community has adopted this same symbol of honor. When you see a biker wearing one spur they are honoring brothers and sisters who have died chasing the wind.

Giving a spur to a survivor is a biker's tradition of honoring a fallen friend or loss of a loved one. Here is a presentation given at a friend's funeral (copied from a plac…ard given to the family at the service) - the name has been removed to respect the privacy of the family. Spur Presentation "Today, I have worn this single spur in honor of [deceased's name]. This tradition dates back to medieval days and the knighthood, when medieval horsemen returning from battle would wear one spur instead of a pair, symbolizing the loss of their brother knight. This was significant because it was their spurs that symbolized a man was a knight; not his sword, horse or armor. And no matter what kind of hardship a knight faced, he would part with everything else before he would part with his spurs. This tradition has been handed down and adopted by many groups throughout the centuries. Most notably, perhaps, is the United States Cavalry, where spurs are only awarded to a deserving few. These chosen few represented the best of the best and embodied all that has been, is, and ever will be great within the organization. The tradition has also been adopted by many of today's "Iron Horsemen" to honor a fallen brother or sister rider. With this tradition in mind, it is an honor and a privilege to present you with this spur as a keepsake to remember your loved one's last ride. Please accept our deepest condolences." When the verbal presentation is complete, motorcyclist kneels down, removes his spur, and presents it to the loved one. He then stands back up, turns and walks away.
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. This was then siezed by the OMC (Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs), who proudly started to wear the 1% patch with pride, and continue to do so to this day.

It is a tradition brought over from the Cavalry. A single spur is worn on the right boot in remembrance of a fallen Brother. Some riders are also members of The Order of the S…pur, a tradition in the US Cavalry in which a Trooper is awarded his Combat Spurs after engaging in combat or completing a Spur ride.
A Nomad in an outlaw motorcycle club has authority delegated by the National President to enforce club rules and behavior. Most club members wear a territorial rocker (i.e., t…he bottom patch on the back of the jacket) which signifies what city/locale, state, or province their chapter is located in. A Nomad's territorial rocker, however, will simply say "Nomad". This means that they hold no particular allegiance to a specific club chapter, but should be respected and accepted clubwide. For example, if the National President had a problem with a specific club chapter, he might dispatch a group of Nomads to visit the chapter. The Nomads would then observe the chapter and advise the members of any problems the National President may have. If the infractions were not corrected, the Nomads might then have the authority to correct the problem
