The bikers Gaddafi couldn't stop

Motorcycles, like many other sports or activities, were considered a threat to Libyan culture during the Gaddafi era

Two and a half years after the former dictator was toppled in a bloody revolution, Biker gangs are back on the streets of Libya.
And, after a recent upsurge in road accidents, they're hoping to help keep order on the Libya's roads. Easy Rider Fakhri Al-Hassi, aka 'GO Fahhri', said he was harassed by police during the Gaddafi era for wearing leather clothes and badges. But in February last year Al-Hassi, from Al-Merej in eastern Libya, got back in the saddle and set up the Berynatchi Club.
