Hell's Angels in Full-Face?

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

Been seeing quite a few the last couple years who were wearing full face helmets.

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.

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).
