when I was Jung....
the Hell's Angels...they broke the law, dealt drugs and killed people..what a team! What is it about Harleys..people ride one and all of a sudden they are badass?? If a short guy gets on a Harley, all of a sudden he's a tall guy? They get a club together, get tatoos and ride in big groups and wear leather...and I'm supposed to be impressed? well, I'm not...in fact, I think it's pretty pathetic if the only extension of your personality is a motorcycle...especially if you tweak the muffler to create more noise..you see, the only reason these folks do all this is to grab attention....they seek attention..look at me, notice me..the bigger the group and the louder they are, the more attention they get to feed their starved egos...now, if you took away the bikes and the clubs settings, do you know what these monsters would do? they would sit down and cry like little babies! "where's my mommy??" they would cry..well, your mommy didn't love you and that's why you seek out the community of Harley riders..to find another mommy..bunch of crybabies!!
so that's my analysis which is supported by Jung's depth psychology and archetypes and so on...
so Sonny Barger from the Hell's Angels is on a book tour and on their website he says he will have a signing at the Harley shop in Carp...a lot of Hell Angels guys opened bike shops as a front for their illicit activities, from blowing up rival members clubhouses, to dealing drugs, to prostitution and confirming that they are sociopaths.... but kids, whatever you do, don't grow up to be like him!! He's not a rebel, or a leader, he's just an old guy who caused alot of mayhem and talks through his throat!
Barger remains in the Hells Angels as a member of the Cave Creek Chapter. Touring internationally to promote his books, he also acts as an unofficial ambassador of the biking club. The aging Barger, the once rakish icon of the "one percenters"--that 1% portion of cyclers that American Motorcycle Association described as giving the rest a bad rap--speaks with a raspy voice reminiscent of the possessed child in the Exorcist. Thanks to a 30 year, three-Camel-pack-a-day habit, Barger needed throat cancer surgery in the early 1980's. He breathes through a plastic valve in his neck, and covers the vent to speak. His exhaled breath then passes through a reconstructed larynx.
so is the Santa Barbara Harley shop in Carp affiliated with the Hell's Angels..my guess would be yes'm although when Barger said he would be at their shop to sign books, they hurried to say they were not affiliated with him in any way: The Sonny Barger book signing event is not being held at and is no way endorsed by Santa Barbara Harley-Davidson. The flyer posted on the Santa Barbara Hells Angels web site is incorrect and we have been advised that it will be updated shortly. Please visit hell and watch for updated event information.
probably just a PR move..but covertly, they have a bunch of Hell's Angels punks going in and out of their shop..how could they not??
3 packs of Camels a day.....wow!! what a cool dude!!!
