They're here (since the 70's) but as far as I know they are not quite so problematic as in N. America, but still problematic. I used to work for Billy Talbot in Toronto and although he and I got on well, in general I don't like bikers.

What's most implausible to me is that there are Hells Angels in Germany. European biker gangs? Seriously?
Jup, mostly active in Germany and Scandinavia, the Hells Angels and the Banditos are quite a lot in the news for their criminal actions and gang wars. Lately a peace treaty between both groups made headlines. They are basicly Mafia material, living of prostitution,bouncers, illegal gambling, the traditional playing fields for such groups.
Usually, however, they are more percieved with a certain kind of czurious fascination then with a feeling of threat, mostly because they pretty much stick to their own underworld turf without involving people who would cause an outcry here.
