You can't compare that to the typical American view of gangs. They share more traits with the illegal street racers.
I'm actually not too surprised that there are bike gangs in Japan. I mean I saw them in Akira and probably every country has some form of a bike gang or at least a form of a gang.
If you can find something in one coutry or region, you can most likely find it in another or multiple areas. Japan i see is no different, especially when it comes to anything involving automobiles or electronics.
Biker gangs? I am not an expert in that field, but I thought any type of gang has been duplicated or mimiced in just about every country? I mean branching off into other countries is probably the ultimate goal of any group of people willing to go the distance in making a name for themselves. It is all good if you are the kings in your neighborhood or city, but why stop there? Why not take the world?
I just said that i don't considder speeding a gang activety.
I presume there proberly holding races against enemy gangs or people how challens them to a race, and that the somtimes hold fights and make the naughbeirhood unsave by fighting and vandalism.
ok i live in the aomori prefecture and also down in osaka.and i race a 91 skyline with a rb26 conversion.and trust me there biker gangs there.they even race there bikes with our cars all the time. in tokyo you rarly see them.the mostly chill in there turf.mostly the gangs have some connection with the yakuza.this like the lower level members who have work there way up into the high level of a yak.in all honesty the higher members of the yak are really nice people..its the younger ones you have to watch out for.
and your an american so the really wont mess with you.just say your military.
i was in one bar fight in japan.i was me and 6 of my co-workers.and we were so drunk.i was trying to dance with this girl.and the guy did not like that.so he wanted start.so kneed him straight in his chest.then my friends came in and so did all of his friends.we wiped the floor with those guys.are guess for one regular sized american drunk can take out 5 japanese guys.
