For maybe a decade, I've been reading Canadian mysteries of various sorts that featured motorcycle gangs as villains and saying, "How tired!" In Pennsylvania, we have cycle thugs who run meth networks and every so often kill someone, but mostly we have parades of vets or anti-helmet-law activists or whatever who try to get on TV to proclaim, "I'm an accountant and I ride a motorcycle." I don't think I've heard anybody say they were afraid of motorcycle gangs since the 1950s, and I was a little kid then and I might be mistaken. So I was embarrassed to read an actual news item recently about how bad the motorcycle gang problem is up north.
