W.T.F. over?

Dude looks like he has a screw loose, or two. But mug shots are never taken at your best moments are they?

On a side note, sweet looking Triumph on that trailer!

He may have just popped you and took all your cash if he had running on his mind.

I havent been in a good gun battle for years. Mom always said these damn motersickles were dangerous!

So it seems the guy he killed was his landlord, & he was behind on his rent. I guess thats why he was trying to sell out his shop to me.

http://www.timesdaily.com/article/20...ouple-s-deaths

a mutual friend of ours called me up today & said 'if you had bought his stuff, he coulda paid the rent & not killed anyone'

of course he was joking, but that is pretty fucked up when you think about it!

What if I HAD met him that morning & bought his stuff?

its weird to think about.

Actually, that's DAMN funny.

There never seems to be a dull moment in these threads that contain Doug.

Don't let that stuff creep in, Doug. There was probably more going on there than any one could have hoped to prevent. Not your deal.

Don't even go there, if it wasn't this month, it would have been the next month. Anyone who would shoot their landlord over not being able to pay rent is, to say the least, unstable. Nothing you could have done.

But damn, that really isn't anything that could be made up, is it?

I hope there is a fair trial, and if the guy is determined guilty, may the wrath of Uncle Sam and solitary confinement come crashing down around his head.

Or, he would have shot you, taken your money, shot them either now or a month later, and been halfway to Tijuana by the time the cops found out.

POS scumbag.

Aside from all of the "what if"s, sorry that your cohort got himself in this jam. I'm glad you were able to remain uninvolved.

just to set it straight, he was not my cohort or my friend. just some guy I know. I'd see him at swapmeets & stuff, but other than buying some parts & bikes from him, we never hung out or were buddies or nuttin like that.
Personally, I think he is a piece of shit for killing 2 people. He was behind on rent. they were gonna boot him out. thats business.
killing em because of it, & basically throwing the rest of his life away also? well thats just friggin stupid.

Doug

Doug - you made it clear when you first told the story that you only knew the guy a little. You said he never really made ya any good deals. It's a weird feeling when you're that close to something like that. Ya got some good juju - your involvement is minimal, compared to what it might have been.

I've been reading this thread all along. Thanks for taking us behind the shop door. It's a treat to read of your endeavors - and your encyclopedic knowledge of the two-wheeled universe.

Back to lurk mode.
