December 8, 2020 – The Blue Wave mandate instituted by The Pagan’s Motorcycle Club boss Keith (Conan the Barbarian) Richter has hit Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Pagan’s have opened up shop on two new chapters in the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre area, part of the east coast expansion effort dubbed the “Blue Wave Initiative,” when he enacted it three years ago upon taking power as national president.
Richter headquarters out of the Long Island, New York Pagan’s clubhouse. His expansion plan targets parts of Northern New Jersey, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Pennsylvania — regions perceived as either Hells Angels or Outlaws turf. The Hells Angels is the dominant biker club on the west coast and The Outlaws are the most powerful biker club in the Midwest. The Outlaws maintain a pair of support clubs in the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre area.
On Richter’s orders, members of The Pagan’s located in the Northeastern part of the United States wear an “East Coast” rocker rather than one that identifies any particular city or state as is customary in most other clubs. There have now been nine new Pagan’s chapters opened on the east coast under Richter’s Blue Wave initiative.
