Motorcycle clubs like the Bandidos and the Hells Angels don’t have the best reputation with law enforcement officers and members of the public. Many of their members are involved in criminal activities, and some club leaders have ended up serving time in prison for their part in violent crimes.
These clubs refer to themselves as the 1%ers, or outlaw motorcycle gangs as the rest of us call them, because of the statement from the American Motorcycle Association that 99% of biker clubs are law-abiding. While there are plenty of well-behaved biker gangs who spend their time raising money for charity, it is the law-breaking clubs that make the headlines.
