The Decepticons were the first branch of the Moped Army, and the subsequent greater organization of the Moped Army developed from the Kalamazoo branch.
Decepticon membership ebbs and flows, but has had more members founding and joining other branches than any other Moped Army branch. There have been over 130 members through the Decepticons in its 15 year history. There are former members of the Decepticons now members of Peddy Cash, Mosquito Fleet, Creatures of the Loin, The Guns, Bourbon Bandits, Khz, Puddle Cutters, and the Ghost Riders.
Main article: Moped BBQ
The Decepticons used to host the Moped BBQ rally, which were some of the the largest moped rally in North America. Hundreds of Moped Army members would descend on Kalamazoo to celebrate all that is moped. Races, parties, and long rides have regularly been on the agenda.
