Maybe the Mods should sticky this with *** ALERT ALERT ALERT *** in the title, and put it in every section of this forum.


Thanks for the heads up!

Oh this is just awesome! Any more details on this perhaps a link to the story for the area and circumstances of both instances?

This is all I found. Maybe OP can shed some light on the subject, however the article did say second incident in as many days in that area. Believe they are still actively pursuing leads and are trying to keep this in the forefront of peoples minds.

Cool. Glad my bike is down I guess. I imagine it would be hard to get into a gun fight on a bike.

Wish they'd be more specific as to whether it's a second road rage incident (involving a sportbike rider), or a second road rage incident in general (involving any other type vehicle)? It's kinda vague the way they put it.

Guess that means I need to start riding with my vest They didn't take the bike in this case, so theft wasn't the motivation. Just said it was the second road rage incident not motorcycle shooting but getting shot from behind is total chicken sh*t.

is it ****ed up that im not completely surprised by this? i mean really the way ive seen some people act on these things, i almost cant say that i blame them. ive seen people in this city that almost make me ashamed that i own a similar machine. just because of the category that your lumped into.

I wouldn't over react. People get shot in vehicle related incidents almost everyday. There's nothing that says these two are related or even sportbike riders specifically being "targeted".

There doesn't seem to be anything in the article that points to him being on a sportbike as the cause for his murder. Maybe I'm too tired today to jump to conclusions, but it just seems like yet another senseless murder that happens to involve a guy on a bike.
