P.O.B.O.B. MC Reno Charter-
We are a close group whose sole purpose is to ride as brothers. We come from all around the Northern Nevada area. We are not bitch club and support all clubs right to ride together. We are also not a law enforcement club and are active members of the NNCOC.
They were the original outlaw motorcycle and car club. A few miles south of Berdoo in the small town of Bloomington in 1945, a particularly screwy group of veterans including POBOB founder Otto Friedli found civilian life to be too slow and set out to get more thrills by riding motorcycles and hot rod cars. They were all former fly-boys, pilots, gunners, bombardiers, and navigators who called themselves the POBOB's, an acronym for Pissed Off Bastards Of Bloomington.
Then in July 4, 1947, in Hollister, California where the AMA (American Motorcycle Association) sanctioned the Gypsy Tour Run, the Booze Fighters, POBOBs (Pissed Off Bastards Of Bloomington) and the Market Street Commandos took over the town for nearly three days. The POBOB's played an integral role in the Hollister incident, on which the movie "The Wild One" was based, staring Marlon Brando.
Two months later, the same clubs go to Riverside, California for the Labor Day weekend, another AMA sanctioned event. The same thing happens again as it did in Hollister. Over four thousand people, bikers and citizens, took over the town's main street. A Riverside sheriff, Carl Rayburn, blames a bunch of punk kids for disrupting his town, saying "They're rebels, they're outlaws." So from an angry lawman's mouth, the Outlaw Motorcyclists were born.
Then six months later Otto Friedli and some disgruntled POBOBs form the first Hells Angels charter on March 17, 1948, on ST.PATRICKS DAY in San Bernardino, California, also known as "Berdoo." That same year, the AMA made a statement that ninety-nine percent of the motorcyclists are good people enjoying a clean sport and it's the one percent that are anti-social barbarians. The term "One Percenters" is born.
Three years later the P.O.B.O.B.'s came back as a motorcycle club (minus the car club), in the city of Fontana known as felony flats. The club still exists today with a very select group of members known as the PISSED OFF BASTARDS OF BERDOO, throughout Southern California and Nevada.
