Hells Angels at Sturgis
The Hells Angels were originally started by Scottish-American war immigrants, the Bishop family in California. The name was suggested by Arvid Olsen, an associate of the founders, who
had served in the Flying Tigers' "Hells Angels" squadron in China
during World War II. The name "Hells Angels" was inspired by the typical naming of American squadrons, or other fighting groups.
Ralph 'Sonny' Barger, founder of the Oakland chapter, in recent years has worked to promote motorcycle safety,
co-authoring a book on the subject. The book Let's Ride: Sonny Barger's Guide to Motorcycling was released by HarperCollins on June 8, 2010.
