Is anyone afraid of bikers anymore? They are basically a cosplay crowd at this point, right?
Pretty much.
Bikers? You ever been down to Florida?, they are the scum of the earth

There were a bunch of Hell's Angels volunteers at the SF marathon. Super nice and helpful.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I ride a motorcycle and most of the guys I ride with are nerds. We go out early, ride a nice countryside route and then get lunch at a diner. I think, and I think my friends agree, that Harleys are overpriced pieces of garbage.

A few blocks from my house, there's a Biker's Church, which did a lot to shatter the bad-ass mystique of the biker to me.

I worked with a lot of bikers when I worked in child abuse prevention. They were big softies.

I agree with all of this.

What many or most non-riders consistently get wrong is assuming that the motorcycle community is homogeneous, and it's definitely not.

I have nothing in common with the Harley-riding morons (my friends and I call them pirates because of their cosplay costumes). Nor do I have any kinship with the Honda Gold Wing dudes who are riding essentially 2-wheeled Honda Civics (they even have a reverse gear, FFS!) with bitchin' stereo systems and cup holders for the rider and passenger.

I have more affinity with the sports bike crowd, but not with the wheelie-popping and other dangerous stunts they pull.

I ride a moderately powered, dual sport machine, mostly for commuting, but I have taken it off-road a bit.

And then I also ride a pure dirt bike with extreme knobby tires that can handle pretty much any kind of off-road conditions.

These are just examples of some of the many sub-cultures of motorcycle riders.

And then there's the nerdy Beaner crowd, which is probably the Silent Majority of the motorcycle community.

I don't know what that last bit means at all, but it's probably true.

It is so satisfying when someone sets up the use of that line.
