69ers MC Patch and Motto
The 69ers Motorcycle Club patch is a wolf. Some of the reasoning behind the club choosing the wolf for their patch can be found within the following quote by Rudyard Kipling listed on their website:
“For the strength of the pack is the wolf and the strength of the wolf is the pack”.

Like many other of the prominent one percenter motorcycle clubs, they have taken to Social Media sites including Facebook to promote events at their numerous clubhouses, where any member of the public can drop by and have a drink.
