The news out of Vancouver today is FILLED with video of two motorcycles speeding through the Lower Mainland on their motorcycles reaching speeds of up to 200 KM per hour.

I watched the video thinking to myself - these people are nuts, crazy, someone is going to get hurt and sure enough the last bike crashes...
All I am going to say about this incident: I am saddened that people have not yet learned that you can not out run a Motorola and if you needed the adrenaline rush that bad - there are some great tracks you could have taken yourselves and your motorcycles to.

In Moncton, a 19 year old rider was killed when a vehicle turned left in front of him, however NO charges are being laid  - it makes you wonder what isn't being said in the article. Was the rider speeding excessively? Who was driving the vehicle?
Why was not even a charge of failing to yield the right of way laid?  I find it puzzling and I can not imagine how the parents must be charges in an accident that resulted in death...why?

In Regina - Tattoo Artist Terry Oh needs your support, love and assistance.
