9 people lost their lives in the parking lot of a Twin Peaks restaurant Sunday when a dispute between different outlaw motorcycle gangs or clubs resulted in gunshots.

The idea of outlaw motorcycle gangs popularized by movies and the hit TV show "Sons of Anarchy" became more than a two-dimensional image, and left a lot of people wondering what these groups are about, how big are they and what members go looking for when they join these clubs.
