The Fugawis say the main reason they wanted to do a reality show was because they wanted to help dispel the negative myths they may have about bikers. "A big part of our thing is to show people bikers are people too. We're not as bad as everyone makes us out to be," says Fugawi’s Scott Sanguinetti.

"We're the Fugawis" airs on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. on the History Channel.
