Outlaw motorcycle gang to visit Newfoundland


Beginning today and continuing through the weekend the RCMP is expecting an increased presence of members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, particularly in Central Newfoundland.


The RCMP defines an outlaw motorcycle gang as a group of motorcycle riders and/or supporters who voluntarily make a commitment to band together, abide by their organization's rules, and engage in criminal activities.


The Outlaws Motorcycle Club identifies itself as a "1% Club", as do other outlaw motorcycle gangs.


The 1% symbol, which can be seen as a patch, pin or tattoo, distinguishes outlaw motorcycle riders from the majority of motorcycle enthusiasts who are law-abiding citizens.


Outlaw motorcycle gangs have been known to ride in formations at high rates of speed, pass highway vehicles in an unsafe manner and block intersections, as well as congregating at stops along the highway.


Police are asking the public to not engage with these gangs and to instead report sightings and any suspected illegal or suspicious activity to police.


The Outlaws Motorcycle Club is one of the largest Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs in the world and rivals the Hells Angels.
