Outlaw

Technology / Motorcycle / Outlaw: The AMA attempted to organize most of the motorcycle racing competitions many years ago. Some motorcycle clubs and groups of riders did not want to go along with the AMA rules. They became known as Outlaws since they fell outside the laws of the AMA. After the Hollister Incident in 1947, the concept of the outlaw motorcycle gang began becoming part of the American psyche. The term Outlaw then took on a different meaning. Today, some people view all motorcycle clubs as gangs and assume that all gangs are outlaws. Nothing could be further from the truth.
