San Diego CA Motorcycle Accident

Speeding motorcycle hurtles into driver during pursuit

San Diego Ca Motorcycle Accident

A motorcycle rear-ended into an innocent driver during a high-speed chase on Interstate 805 in the North Park area of town.

No biker wants to hear about a motorcycle crash. But, whether in a car or bike it’s really stupid to try to speed away and have the CHP case you on the highway. Personally, I think the stupidity level is doubled when you try to out run the cops on a motorcycle.  I think in the majority of these situations the motorcycle is usually ends up dead or seriously injured. But, what is really tragic in stories like this one, is that usually innocent motorist or pedestrians are often injured in these police chases. Read more »

American Ironhorse Texas Choppers

American Ironhorse Texas Choppers ride up to Mount Laguna and Julian CA.

My 2006 American Ironhorse Texas Chopper and Eric’s 2004 Texas Chopper. A November San Diego ride up to Julian California which is northeast of San Diego and about a mile high in elevation.

Julian is a very popular motorcycle riding destination in San Diego. If you ride east out of Julian down the banner grade you leave the tree covered hillsides for typical desert scenery. You can ride around granite mountain on S2 (the Great Southern Overland Stage Route) as you head out toward Ocotillo at the junction  of Highway 8. now, depending on your time you can just head back to San Diego on eight  as you climb up from the desert floor heading west.

Motorcycle theft

Motorcycle theft

Motorcycle locks - motorcycle theftDid you know that San Diego County has more motorcycles sold in per capita every year than anywhere else in the USA?

I always thought Los Angeles County with its population almost 3 times that of San Diego County would have more motorcycle thefts than San Diego County. But, actually Los Angeles County has roughly the same number (as San Diego County ) of motorcycle stolen each year.

Police authorities speculate that the reason for the high motorcycle thefts in San Diego County is because of its proximity to the Mexican border. From downtown San Diego the border is just 20 minutes to the south.

On a recent news report, it was disclosed that Mexican drug cartels have targeted motorcycles as a quick and easy way to raise cash from selling the bike parts and the entire bikes themselves to interior areas within Mexico and Central America. Read more »
