I'm not sure this is exactly what you meant to say, but if it is, you're dead wrong. All Hell's Angels are outlaw bikers, which is to say they are members of a professional criminal organization whose members wear "colors" and ride motorcycles.

Now if you meant to say that not all motorcyclists are outlaw bikers, and that many are "doctors and lawyers out for weekend rides," this is quite true. In fact, the outlaw bikers are often referred to (and often refer to themselves) as "one per-centers" precisely to differentiate them from the "99%" or motorcyclists who aren't part of the criminal fraternity.
