San Francisco headquarters of the outlaw motorcycle club Hell's Angels
is located near the waterfront in an obscure neighborhhood known as Dogpatch.
The Hell's Angels and the motorcycle itself have long been icons of rebellion
and independence. The Harley riding band first introduced to mainstream
America by writer Hunter S. Thompson
is allegedly associated with drug trafficking, prostitution, rackiteering,
strong-arm tactics and murder. (But Mister SF would never personally say
that!) The Hell's Angel philospohy is now well documented, "The greatest
pleasure in life is doing something people say you can not do, and doing
it with someone you love." Another Hell's Angels maxim is "Three can keep
a secret if two are dead."
