I've lived in Klamath County 45 years and I have seen very little gang activity. Sure there is some here, and when I moved here there were a few Biker gangs members on Bly Mtn. and I knew a couple of Black Panthers living in Sprague River. Most didn't bother anyone unless you bothered them. Now days I see what looks like "Bangers" but haven't seen much going on, except a few large drug bust connected to this or that group. Drugs bring trouble to any community.

How about the Gypsy Jokers, which there are a few in K-falls and several around Grants Pass. I know a few of them. Also we have some smaller clubs moving in.

Thanks Larry, pretty interesting stuff. Fortunately, we live in Oakridge, pretty quiet out here. Usually!

There's a lot of prejudice against bikers. The Gypsy Jokers used to start their 4th of July cruise from the park across from my house. The member that lived there was a decent guy. He and I adopted an elderly lady who was poverty stricken. I picked fruit and produce for her in the summer, John cleaned her gutters, mowed her lawn and washed her windows. I lived there three years, and he and I never shared a harsh word. We weren't buddies, we just lived in the same neighborhood.

Not long ago I was trying to get around a forest fire and got lost on logging roads. I came across a couple guys wearing colors, so I stopped to see if they knew where they were. They were just as lost as I was, but we agreed we were in the wrong place. Once again, it was a cordial conversation. I don't think the movie version of bikers exists in Oregon.
