Road blocks and booze bans have been whacked into place as Hells Angels begin crossing the border into the Northern Territory.

NT Police say up to 200 members of the outlaw motorcycle gang have started crossing into the Territory for their annual national run.

Commander Wayne Harris said Operation Sitara had established road blocks at the borders to check on the Hells Angels' registration and criminal histories.

"They check out the individuals as they arrive... just making sure everything is compliant law-wise as they arrive in the Northern Territory," Cdr Harris said.

At the same time, a temporary licence has been issued by the Territory's Business Minister to restrict the sale of alcohol to anyone wearing the colours of the motorcycle gang.

Phillip Gozedon, from the Kulgera Roadhouse, said police were stopping the bikers on the South Australian border, but that he hadn't seen many Hells Angels so far.

"A couple of small groups came through on Sunday morning and then we had a group of about 10 stayed here Sunday night," Mr Gozedon said.

"They booked a room and come and had a meal and a few drinks, and there were about two groups of about 10 came through yesterday."

Mr Gozedon, whose roadhouse is on the South Australian border, said he had been serving the bikers and there had been no problems despite the appearance of plain clothes police.

"One or two came in with the second group yesterday and they stood there taking photos of each other and they had a little bit of a chat and they went on their way."

Territory police have said they will be following the Hells Angels for the whole time they are in the NT.
