Authorities are awaiting toxicology reports. My GUESS is that he was drinking. BL was a wild man for whom I didn't really care much.

Even if there's no alcohol in his blood, He was trying to pass two other vehicles on a double yellow-lined. As far as I know double yellow lines means no passing.

Hopefully his bikes are selling well. He is probably going to need a good lawyer.

No doubt even if he wasn't drunk the deceased family is going to sue the out of him. I wonder why the moped didn't head for the ditch you ain't ever going to win against a cage in a headon.

the moped-er and BL probably never saw each other until it was too late. The reason for the double yellow usually indicates a limited sight distance, suchas going up a hill you can't see the other side, so you shouldn't pass...

i hope the best for both parties....

btw, i bet the 22 year old was pretty fine...

No charges were filed??? :eh: He passed two cars on a double yellow and killed a motorcyclist? Yeah, I'd say charges should be filed.

i wouldn't be too quick on the yellow line thing b/c it may well have been solid and skips or maybe they turned into double solids after Lane initiated the pass. Really hope he didn't have alcohol in his system though.

He's a good guy? WTF? You guys kill me. The same guy who was well known for his heavy drinking and partying,? I'm sure DUI was a regular part of his routine. However, it doesn't matter whether or not he had alcohol in his system. The fact is that he made an illegal pass and struck an innocent guy and killed him. Sorry, but I won't be wishing luck to Billy Lane here. He should serve time for his crime. Vehicular manslaughter.

If this was a story in the local Houston paper, you guys would be trashing the irresponsible cager. Just because it's a guy who makes kick- choppers (in some people's opinions), it's different? :BangHead:
