    Riding across the SF Bay Bridge today, I came upon a group of six guys, all wearing Hell's Angel's jackets and riding low Sportsters. And all of them had on black full-face hats with dark face shields. No pirate gear -- jeans (or Draggin' Jeans), nice neat jackets and flat-black full face helmets. And really nice looking bikes...

    Is this the new outlaw look...?

    Probably out on a hit, covered faces are harder to identify.

    who knows could be a new outlaw look? i mean bandannas and eyewear aside half helmet's still leave much exposed and identifiable. but under a ff helmet with dark shield a rider is completely anonymous. so far as that goes in a biker gang

    but yeah face hidden from cops and enemies. ready for a random hold up. its perfect

    or they can just keep doing this idc :1drink

    Probably a group of dentists and maxiofacial surgeons...just weekendender bike gang members.

    Knowing the importance of a winning smile..they chose full face. Much the same as all the other bad ass Harley owners, who like to perpetuate a tough guy image while riding nearly 1000 miles a year...

    These guys were the real deal. Chapter number, etc.

    Even the poseurs know better than to try and fake that.

    Yes, I know. But I was too busy enjoying the view from the new bridge to pull out the phone camera.

    Many have gone to it, less recognition and with a full face there is now one less reson to be pulled over ( no need to check if the novelty helmet is dot or not).

    That's Ontario, CA. In the middle of a pretty tough part of SoCal, right next to the H.Angels birthplace of Fontana.

    That's why I figure those guys in the pics must be actual members. Poseurs in that part of SoCal would not last long.
