Or so the newspaper in the neighboring town says. I saw a front page article claiming the sheriff was concerned about ongoing issues with the Mongols. I hadnt heard a thing till I saw the article. The town is only 8 miles away, and is wheremy gym is, so I am there frequently...

Here's a wiki about them.

"In 2002, members of the Mongols and the Hells Angels had a confrontation in Laughlin, Nevada at the Harrah's Laughlin Casino, that left three bikers dead. Some police intelligence reports indicate that the Mongols initiated the confrontation to bolster their status.[5] Mongol Anthony Barrera, 43, was stabbed to death, and two Hells Angels, Jeramie Bell, 27, and Robert Tumelty, 50, were shot to death. On February 23, 2007, Hells Angel members James Hannigan and Rodney Cox were sentenced to two years in prison for their respective roles in the incident."

Something to do with this, perhaps?

I know a guy named Lloyd in that group. He's a Neanderthal.

I look at patch wearers like I look at Grizzly bears.....from a distance if possible, with a good pair of binocs. I won't bother them if they don't bother me, and I take all steps to make sure our contact is minimized. If they pull in to a campground, say, we leave.... instantly. I don't hang out in biker bars, and I don't try to "be cool" around them; I don't pretend to be something I'm not.... If I have to, I speak to them softly and with the respect I'd show anyone else. Most of the time, they are preoccupied with each other.

We think we've noticed, however, that they are friendlier to Wingers than they used to be -- the people they really despise are the weekend Harley biker wannabe! "The bad-arse dentist or lawyer with his freshly laundered do-rag wrapped around his silly head! They hate those guys, and, in truth, I don't like them much, either!

I don't know if they are still around, but for over 25 years we lived 4 blocks from the Bandios,a 1% group, my kids attended the same schools as thier kids and rode the same buses every day,they used to be the "bad boys" of motorcycling in Texas. I rode my bike un-molested because I didn't mess with them. The only time I had any kind of a problem with them was thru a new probate member who wanted to take my colors away from me. The head guy told them that at that time I was a state officer in the Texas Motorcycle Road Riders Association and that if they wanted to have to wear helmets, mess with me if not leave me alone, at that time I was going to our state capital, along with many others, trying to get the helmet law re-wirtten.

Now I wonder if I did a good thing or a bad thing about the helmet laws then ???? But bottom line.....I like cousin jack now will avoid as much contact with "patch" wearers....Times have changed and some of these outlaw bikers are far worse than they were a few years ago..
