I don't watch the evening news on any channel so not sure what they do or do not do...
I might be old and get confused, but that is usually later in the day and not at 5:30 in the morning, at that time of day I have only been up a couple of hours and am not tired yet.

the general gist is that those folks kind of do a little stereotyping of sports bike riders as folks who go too fast and ride too careless... they must have seen an unedited Renzo video...

Yea well, most anchors don't know the difference between type of motorcycles, plus almost all info obtained to write the story comes from the LEA that worked the accident scene

This guy wasn't a rider, someone that just borrowed a bike from a friend and had no experience...he had no business on that bike.

how about this * for a change :::

HOUSTON - A woman who was riding a scooter to work was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure after the scooter was struck by a police car near the Texas Medical Center.

The accident took place before 6:30 a.m. Friday in the intersection of North MacGregor Way and Holcombe Boulevard in southeast Houston.

The woman who rode the scooter was not seriously injured, FOX 26 News has learned, but she was taken to nearby Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center.
