* Bikers Against Child Abuse try to use this image to protect children who have been molested or abused-- if the victim is scared at night, they will ride up to keep vigil, and they also fill the entire front row of the courtroom when the victim has to testify.

* The BlueOysterCult were pretty much the house band for New York Angels. The band adopted a leather biker look for a while in tribute, and wrote several songs as homage: ''Transmaniacon MC'' tells the story of the Altamont festival - from the point of view of the Angel chapter that became infamous there. ''Golden Age of Leather'' is about old Angels who decide to go out with a bang rather than get old. ''Feel The Thunder'' is about the death and afterlife of three Angels.

** Shark rides a motorcycle - or something like one - in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal''. (WordOfGod explains Shark being able to drive despite not being driving age by saying that his bike is "not a motorcycle, but a futuristic vehicle that has not been named" and will not elaborate further.)

** A good example are the guys of [[http://www.rescueink.org/ Rescue Ink]], who work to help rescue abused animals while making sure that the abusers get what's coming to them. See [[http://www.dosomething.org/blog/chatterbox/bikers-help-fight-animal-cruelty this article]] for an absolutely adorable picture of them helping out puppies.

* ''BikerMiceFromMars'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: they're humanoid mice, they come from Mars, and they're bikes. For the Badass part... Back on Mars they routinely fought tanks one-on-one and ''won''.
* Some ''{{Transformers}}'', such as Thrust from ''Beast Machines'', Sideways from ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' and Prowl from ''TransformersAnimated'', take this even further... they're Badass ''Bikes''. [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Oil_Slick_%28Animated%29 Oil Slick]] has yet to appear, but he looks the part and will likely fit the role to a T.

* In ''[[Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo The Dreeson Incident]]'', the eponymous incident involves [[spoiler: Buster Beasley riding into a armed mob]] on a Harley. This combined with the HeroicSacrifice he makes after dismounting lead to him attaining major in-universe status as a MemeticBadass.

* Italy has a tradition of ''military'' bikers dating to before WorldWarII, when every ''Bersaglieri'' (quick assault infantry) regiment was given a recon platoon equipped with bikes, recon platoons that, if necessary, [[http://image.archivioluce.com/foto/high/ATTUALITA/GP13/A00049515.JPG could fight]]. To this day, Italian brigades still have a recon company equipped with bikes (including, of course, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garibaldi_Bersaglieri_Brigade Garibaldi bersaglieri brigade]]), said bikes' manufacturer Cagiva sells bikes to armies of all the worlds, and the ''Corazzieri'' (the guards of the Italian president, chosen among the tallest and most badass of the ''Carabinieri'') [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3f/2june2006_059.jpg can be seen on large bikes when on parade or escorting the president]].
