The term Moped Army also refers to a graphic novel of the same name authored by Paul Sizer.

The Moped Army is a group of avid moped riders, originally formed as the Decepticons in 1997. Eventually, as other moped riders showed an interest in creating their own branches associated with the Decepticons, the Moped Army was formed, with the Decepticons summarily becoming a branch of the Moped Army.

The organization is comprised of self-governing branches which implement their own criteria regarding membership and organize their own activities.

The Moped Army recognizes three classes of members:

  • Members, who are active within their branch
  • Scouts, who have left the geographic boundaries of their branch, and
  • Honorary, who have helped the development of a branch without necessarily having become a member.

Each branch, further, keeps a list of retired members.
