Every December hundreds of folks on motorcycles participate in toy drives for needy kids. Which is just sweet. But we kind of long for the time when we used to call them "bikers" and they were scary. Before nice guy Jay Leno was riding a hog with a jet engine. Well, just in time for Christmas, the bad boy bikers are back. The LA Times reports that yesterday's Spark of Love toy drive in Norco, in Riverside County, ended with 3 people getting shot (they should all recover). Where did it all go down? In the parking lot of the wild-west sounding Maverick Steakhouse and Saloon, where Sundays are Biker Nights.
