I get sidetracked very easily. That is how I came up Kitten Motorcycle Gang, some ridiculous new characters that I hope to turn into an empire. I envision plush toys, action figures, a movie, cat food, and a theme park attraction. I'm still trying to name these bad biker kitties. From Left to Right, there's Tiger (or Tommy), Sheba (or Kitty) and Hairball. Or maybe Hunter, Leona, and Bruno.
Part of the inspiration for Kitten Motorcycle Gang is an old picture from the early 1990s I found of our family cat, Bud, lounging on a motorcycle. I based KMG member Hairball on Bud.
Besides the fact that cats are popular on the Internet, and shows like Sons of Anarchy are big right now, I also had inspiration for Kitten Motorcycle Gang from something from the past. That would be Topps Perlorian Cats Trading Cards.
Back in 2010, I wrote a Dizmentia post called Bad Biker Kitties: Topps Perlorian Cats (click the link to see that) and I noticed from the responses that some people were obsessed with those motorcycle cats.
Watch for Kitten Motorcycle Gang to rev up their cycles and roar (and purr) sooner that nine lives from now. I'm thinking of songs that need to appear in a KMG movie. Definitely Rock this Town by the Stray Cats and maybe Puss n' Boots by Atom Ant, and possibly Kitty by the Presidents of the United States of America.
UPDATE: JUNE 19, 2017
The Kitten Motorcycle Gang characters are finally entering the third dimension, in the form of plush toys.

The Kitten Motorcycle Gang has rivals. The most infamous are the Teacup Piglet Hogs.
Buddy the pig enjoys combing his mohawk when he is not riding his bike.
The Hare Raisers may look cute, but these bunnies are a force to be reckoned with.
The Hare Raisers are known to vandalize gardens and steal 14 Karat Gold.
The Chihuahua Chopper Club's most notorious canine is Bandito.
Bandito is friends with the Kitten Motorcycle Gang. He sells them Catnip.
Plush toys of the Teacup Piglet Hogs, Hare Raisers, and the Chihuahua Chopper Club are in the works and will soon be ready to rumble with the Kitten Motorcycle Gang.
