Re: Weekend Madness on Ortega Highway
As a sport biking community we need to make sure that we are not lumped in with the morons who did this.

Get Well cards can be sent to:


32951 Camino Capistrano

San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675

They will give them to the officer.

What makes me mad
What makes me mad is that maniacs run around the roads in cars, and they are just maniacs. Maniacs on bikes and they are "just another motorcyclist". It's lame, that's for sure.

These guys most likely did what they did because these bikes are stolen, these guys are NOT motorcyclists, they are criminals, and most likely thieves.

I hope the officer has a full and fast recovery. I also ask that people do not abuse the address that was listed here. Show some restraint and spare sending out silly letters saying you're glad it happened and what not (might I add they'll track you down for even joking anyhow, figured I'd add that since people don't seem to be able to show restraint around here quite often).

I hope they nail these guys.

The bikes were being pulled over for not having license plates. The dashboard camera would not show much.

Definately not your average motorcyclist, we'd like to think. And as for the "blunt object" used to strike the officer, we hear -- though it is not confirmed -- that the object was the officer's flashlight.

We'll keep you posted with any updates.

While I don't condone this sort of violence, I wonder what the officer did to initiate this.

Re: Weekend Madness on Ortega Highway
Does anyone have the officer's last name, at least? Easier to write a note if you have someone specific to address it to...

Re: Weekend Madness on Ortega Highway
Didn't you read? He initiated a traffic stop on two motorcycles without license plates. That was most likely enough, as the bikes were probably stolen.

Additional info from the Register
Below is a link to additional info from the OC Register. It occurred at 6:45AM on Sunday, on the Orange County side just east of Caspers park (possibly near the long straight before the ranger station), and they fled east toward Elsinore. The article includes a composite drawing of one suspect, and a generic bike description, "Ninja racing motorcycles".

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 06:49 AM.
