Yeah... half the people in my office think I'm suicidal... the other half are jealous.

Probably the same half...

I hope you can post some pics. What a great event!

Hey, at least he came back and admitted he damaged your bike. How many times have we heard about a friend whose bike was crunched in a parking lot and the person who did it did not leave any information. So, props to him for doing the right thing.

Gets on the 405s at Bake? What time?

Never pick a fight with someone when you have no clue what they are capable of. You would think by 60 he would have learned that lesson.

Just for anyone who is interested, I have always been happy with Motorcycle Transport:

Late 70's we used to spend Saturday mornings running up and down Ortega. There was a lot less traffic and the our worst fear was coming around a turn and finding rocks/gravel in the road. Of course our bike were less powerful and the brakes and suspension sucked by today's standards. These days, I have been across Ortega only a few times in the last five years. Always seems so busy and too many race car/bike pilots with far more advanced vehicles. Or, maybe I am just getting too old for that road. But I can certainly see an accident like this happening. Not that I can't see it on Santiago Canyon as well. RIP to those involved.

28-Year-Old Man Dies in Fall During ‘Illegal’ Motorcycle Stunt on 15 Freeway in Corona: CHP

A rider was killed Sunday after he stood on his motorcycle during an illegal stunt on the 15 Freeway in Corona and tumbled onto the road, officials said.

Leslie Elliott, a 28-year-old Garden Grove resident, was pronounced dead at Corona Regional Medical Center, according to the Riverside County coroner’s bureau.

Elliott was one of 20 to 30 members of the motorcycle group, Ruthless Ryderz, who were riding on the northbound 15 Freeway near Weirick Road just before 10 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The group was causing traffic woes on the freeway as members slowed and blocked motorists so that riders “could perform illegal stunts on the freeway,” CHP Sgt. Nathan Baer said in a statement

Looking forward to watching the Kota video.

Ride on,


 :32: Yep!

I went through there a few minutes before it happened. All I could think is I was glad no bikes were in the HOV lanes either north or south when it happened. That would have been ugly. I hope the pilot and passenger from the plane come through OK.

NBPD to focus on motorcycle safety Saturday

As part of our grant-funded Special Traffic Enforcement and Crash Prevention (STEP) activities, the Newport Beach Police Department will be conducting a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation on Saturday, June 24.

Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas that are frequented by motorcyclists and where recent traffic collisions have occurred, in an effort to reduce injuries. Education and enforcement will be targeted at drivers and motorcycle riders alike. The officers will be focused on specific offenses including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, driving on a suspended or revoked license, violations of motorcycle license endorsement, and any other dangerous activities.

Motorcycle fatalities have risen dramatically in California, showing a 28% increase over the decade low of 352 in 2010. In 2013, 453 motorcyclists lost their lives, marking the highest number of deaths in the previous five years. California collision data shows that the primary causes of motorcycle-involved collisions include speeding, unsafe turning, and driver/rider impairment due to drugs or alcohol.

During the past two years in the City of Newport Beach, 66 persons were injured in traffic collisions involving motorcycles, but none of these collisions involved a fatality. The Police Department remains dedicated to preventing traffic-related deaths and injuries.

Funding for these Safety Operations is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic and Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
