We use to go to their hangout when we were old enough to drink. As far as Hells Angels are concerned, the Binghamton chapter was pretty mellow I think. They are no longer there.
I don't believe anyone in the gang, called The Laffin' Devils, is an actual 1%er. The guy who started the club was a 12 year military vet who like other vets just needed to be around guys who knew what it was like, they started riding once they got together. In the first and only episode so far, in the end of it, he dropped his position from President as he didn't like what was going on with the newer and younger and possibly soon to be 1%er crowd. Not sure why he let them in to begin with but hey, that's the mentality of these guys.
They are a small group, not even maybe 50 deep. Started out five years ago with only 5 guys.
