On W5 there was an in depth documentary on a predator.
Caron Oderbien - a grifter, a predator - call her what you will - I will call her evil.

The W5 investigation took 10 months to complete and uncovered  a lot of dirt on this gal who is reportedly living in the Camrose AB region - or she was up until the show aired.

Our troops, people with cancer - this broad milked a whole ton of us riders and a whole lot of other unsuspecting people. I will never understand why there are people like her - what made her the way she is, what made her - drove her to take advantage of the less fortunate, the ill and the infirm? I guess until she is caught we will never know, in the mean time this gal has left destruction, hurt and empty wallets in a rather large swath right across Canada and into the northern US.

Then in the US, tragedy struck the riding community in a large way again. Reminiscent of the crash last March in Phoenix, this one in Southern California has the Saddletramps Motorcycle Club devastated.

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of their club, riding down an undivided two lane highway and someone, pulls out to pass the riders with a car coming - in order to avoid a head on the driver of the oncoming car swerved to the right, went into the sand, over compensated, came back onto the highway and drive right in to the riders. The card driver who was passing the bikes in an unsafe manner was reportedly doing close to 100 mph.

 With 4 riders dead and the passenger of the oncoming car dead - this tragedy, highly avoidable is eerily similar to the Phoenix crash...I pray with all my heart for the families and friends of the dead riders. I pray for a speedy recovery of the injured and hope that the driver who never stopped - the SOB that caused the accident to get caught - SOON.

The driver of the oncoming vehicle was arrested for DUI but it is not believed that his alcohol consumption had anything to do with this accident.

As always, I love it when you wade in on the discussions of the day - today is no different.

Only thing is the discussions on FB have to take place on our Fan Page - I am at my max for friends on my personal page! So join us at Belt Drive Betty & The Busted Knuckle Chronicles
Or in the forums at or right here in my blog - I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on these two situations...what can we riders do to prevent being taken to the cleaners by the dishonest and what can we do to help prevent collisions like the on in SOCal?
