Before you think about putting a patch or badge on your jacket or vest is is important to understand that ..

"The general public does not draw a distinction between different club colors. In many cases, they simply can't tell the difference: we're all "Biker Scum" to them. If one club causes a problem that touches the public sector, the offending club's identity is either confused or ignored and the heat comes down on all clubs. The general public does not make the distinction between a MC and an RC (Riding Club), therefore EVERYONE needs to be aware that no matter whether they are in an MC and RC or an Independent rider, their actions reflect on all in the motorcycle community.  The MC clubs tend to police themselves to avoid such incidents."

 Quote from this recommended reference  Biker culture etiquite


No adjustment to RIDE TIL WE ROT SOCIETY patches etc is permitted

Upon joining RIDE TIL WE ROT SOCIETY member you are entitled to apply for the front patch.

In some countries a one piece back patch is available. (not Aus)




In those countries where there is no Back Patch available, a Rotters back strap is usually available.



(since the hit TV drama sons of anarchy we are now getting a lot patch collectors who have no interest in our society so we have to look at every person that's being patched up to see if they will not disrespect us. We also like you to come to the RIDE TIL WE ROT meets to get to know the members and for the members to get to know you before we hand over any patch )

You must be a RIDE TIL WE ROT SOCIETY member for 3 months before applying for the any back patch. 

Ask your rep for more info.
