The Patch's History: Why was the Bikers United in Rememberance Patch designed?
When then Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command was threatening to sue veterans who are bikers for using the poppy in their patches a few years ago, I was angry and determined to do something about it. The Poppy is a symbol that I feel belongs to all veterans.
After an extensive letter writing campaign the National President of CAV, Trapper Cane, told me I needed to do something positive with all of the anger felt before it ate me alive.
This patch is the outcome of anger turned into something positive - I found a motorcycle rim that reflected the petal like qualities of a flower and began to build a bikers version of the poppy, one that a biker can use as long as funds raised from selling them fund veterans causes.
The characteristics inside the wheel express what it takes and means to be a soldier - Strength, Loyalty, Honour, Sacrifice and Respect with Service being the hub.
