Hey, it worked for Rambo once. He figured he'd give it a go.

Come on Fonz, you have to admit there has been a bit of a drop off lately.



It seems like the last three pieces of content were after-thoughts. The Daytona piece wasn't exactly timely, the Nightster piece came after nearly everyone else posted and printed info on the bike, and the scooter piece wasn't a review or a travel article or a gear review, but just of someone "not getting" scooters.



The other thing that a lot of people are getting annoyed at is the complete lack of communication. MO is bought out, a new editor-in-chief (or whatever he is) is brought on, and then...nothing.



It seemed more that the last three pieces of content were thrown up as a "see, we posted content" than anything else.



Combine that with the bike review section not being updated for several months just makes the whole process seem really weak.



If this was any other site, it would be different. But, you are charging people to be here, no matter how small that amount is. If you do not communicate with paid member this will happen again as it has happened in the past. Why doesn't MO put things in place to prevent the natives from being restless? Give the members an update on future events? Something?

How do you arrest a moving motorcycle?



Well, I guess if you mean 'arrest' in the sense of 'coming to arrest' he made a citizen's arrest.



If you're not a traffic cop you don't have the authority to write speeding tickets, unless there is a weird state law where you live that I've never heard of. Good luck lugging the guy down to the police station and saying he was speeding.



Don't fall off that horse, it's a long ways down.

Easy now. You don't know where he's from. If it's Montana or Wyoming he might easily have done a .44mag arrest. They don't hold their guns sideways there either.

If you look at the bike reviews section you'll see that the number of bike tests when JB was here wasn't all that great either. They were at their highest when Sean was editor.



But right now it's the worst it's ever been. That "wait a bit it's gonna get better" crap is wearing thin.

Maybe this old guy should have simply thrown a stick in the road.



All kidding aside this is a tragedy and there's no upside to this. The old guy was dumb to step in front of a moving motorcycle and the 'motorcyclist' (God, I hate to use that term when describing these jerks) is a class A$$hole who deserves serious jail time with Bubba and a life of servitude to the family he harmed.



Just pray that some politician doesn't decide to "do something" about it.

Default Enlighten me why

Why can an jerkwad open their car door and dent the living helll out of your car and it not be considered an accident by the coppers? If that same jerkofff is moving an causes the same amount of damage the cops will be all over it. Pissesss me off.
