Isn't Billy Lane that jackass that killed someone while he was riding his motorcycle into oncoming traffic while drunk?

Well, yeah he is, but he's cut his hair!

I get the feeling this guy gave the old lady beans for the bike, he'll put it back together and sell it for some serious bux to some collector that puts it in the corner of his 'study'.

I guess there's nothing wrong with that...

Eh, long hair, short hair. It's still manslaughter. He should just tattoo a pair of t!ts on his back now...

I sometimes wonder about those "Rough and Tumble Outlaw-Criminal" Biker-types that tattoo nekkid ladies on their backs......... Exactly HOW "Rough and Tumble" are they, anyway?

He was in a vintage truck and killed a motorcyclist- I thought. Irony at it's finest.

Well, to be honest, .30 cal 168gr boattail hollow points work equally well on young or old, rich or poor.

Toughest guy I ever knew was about 5'7", slender and an ex-navy seal. Looked and dressed very neat and conservatively. No long hair. One seal tattoo. You did not want to mess with this guy.

I believe he was in a Chrysler truck who was one of his sponsors, and who got sued by Billy's passenger and got some cash in the deal. Billy and his lawyers are working overtime ot get his blood test thrown out that proved he was drunk. It's going to cost him millions, but he may walk. The rich usually do.

Tattoos are hardly any indicator of toughness. Just watch Urijah Faber fight. He looks like the All American Boy, and he is tough as they come. Long hair and tats don't mean shyt except the long hair gives your opponent another way to rip your head off.
