Watched a show last night about a San Diego motorcycle gang named the Laughing Devils.
Are these guys for real or just a made for TV gang?,as all their patches and leathers seem to be brand new,not a scuff, and some of the fights and other scenes seemed a bit too contrived..
Any one from San Diego ever heard of this group?

Thanks Deb very informative link.
They are definitely not 1%ers.
Couldnt figure out their point as why wear colors that will attract all kinds of trouble if all you do is drive and drink,real bike gangs are a business and dont get together just to ride bikes.
A big key to where these guys are coming from is one of the producers is Eric Bishoff which kinda puts these boys in the same league as professional wrestling.
Total made for tv posers.

Unlike Sons of Anarchy which gives the viewer some believable drama and great acting Devils ride seems to have no point to it,as a result i dont think its going to be on for too long..

To add/
The lack of responses to this topic also lead me to believe the show is a total dud.

I actually got hooked on the series. I can't believe that Gipsy went alone into the clubhouse with a baseball bat and his new club cut. Who is dumb enough to do that? I thought the show might be slightly plausible until I saw that part.

I think the producers upped the violence factor this season for ratings.
