Sample text

According to Barger, 400 fellow club members joined him on the ride into Sturgis that year. In their saddle bags were the essentials: guns and bail money. Of the arrival, Barger wrote: The general roar of our Harleys filled the landscape. Cisco, president of the Oakland chapter remembers the numbers. ‘We were like the Crusaders and Genghis Khan and the Jesse James gang all rolled into one. ’ I was riding at the front of the entire pack and felt as if no power could stop us. It was like I became Chief Crazy Horse leading the charge.

That something was the Hells Angels. Barger’s transition from the straight world to the world of the outlaw biker epitomised by Lee Marvin in The Wild One began in 1956 when he joined a local bike gang, the Oakland Panthers. His tenure with the club was brief. They were local kids flirting with the biker life, not the ‘close-knit club of men who could jump on their bikes, ride cross-country if they wanted to, and not abide by rules or clocks’. Barger takes credit for seeing a friend’s ‘Hells Angels’ military uniform patch and adapting the design for the club he and his fellow disgruntled youths from Oakland had talked about forming.

The ultimate Hells Angel also boasted an extensive criminal record, which included charges for theft, assaults, rape, narcotics, and the rather intriguing ‘public cunnilingus’. ’ Terry was a great fan of a wide variety of pharmaceuticals that would take him up and take him down, as well as LSD, marijuana and, eventually, heroin. ) Terry also had a commercial interest in drugs. According to Sonny Barger, Terry and colleague George Wethern were ‘deep into the drug business’ by November 1965, and were credited as the major suppliers of LSD to Haight-Ashbury during the 1967 ‘Summer of Love’.
