My initial concerns as to whether my bulky 6” 4 frame would sit comfortably on the back of one of these huge hogs soon disappeared as we blazed through the tranquil and scenic back routes, leaving in our path a trail of terror and destruction (sort of).
While the gang members in the Sons of Anarchy juggle various “day jobs” and engage in all sorts of criminal activity after hours, the guys we rode with were far removed from any dodgy lifestyle, and to my surprise, were quite normal (one was actually a pastor, although it wasn’t something I would have guessed from just looking at him!)
All in all, it was a fun day and not only did I get over my anxiety of riding on one of those beasts (I hadn’t been on a bike since the age of 13), but I also gained a new-found respect for this sub-culture and finally understood the appeal of it all.
Still, I think I’d be at the very bottom of the list if I applied to join the Sons of Anarchy though.
Sons of Anarchy: Season 2 is available on Blu-ray and DVD today, on 16 August from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. You can buy it here.
