The Roar on the Shore was this past weekend and by all accounts it was a successful event with everyone reporting a good time. Everyone except these pedestrians who were struck by a motorcyclist and thankfully were not seriously injured. Both got up and were walking around when police arrived. Both refused treatment. The motorcycle operator stayed and spoke with investigators who did not immediately file charges. However that may change after police review this video.
The video shows the rider rev up his bike, pop the clutch and spin the rear tire sideways before correcting and in an attempt to avoid the motorcycle ahead of him, veer into the crowd and strike two pedestrians.
Now we know when you’re jonesing for your motorcycle fix you’ll do just about anything to get it, but we think this might be taking the art of customizing donkey’s a little too far. Sure, you probably won’t see another one like it at your local bike night but if this is your only resource, maybe you should be willing to blend in with the crowd for the time being. At least until you can afford a custom paint job on a real honest to goodness motorcycle.
We’re not sure what the exhaust came from, but it looks a little like an old Norton or Triumph thumper.

Each year the Harley-Davidson stockholder’s meeting heralds the “unofficial” start of spring in the Milwaukee area, and for the past two years, the HD faithful have celebrated that event at the annual meeting in their iron and steel church, The Harley-Davidson museum.
But, this year Harley was shut out of their own museum and will be forced to hold their stockholders meeting at the Frontier Airlines Center instead.
According to published reports, another group had already secured the museum’s meeting room for the April 30th date.
“We couldn’t get the space,” Harley-Davidson spokesman Bob Klein told the Milwaukee Business Journal, “There is another group that booked the site.”
While most shareholder meetings of corporations are small events, with few attendees other than management, Harley-Davidson’s annual meeting is larger, with several hundred stockholders riding in from all over the USA.
Klien told the Milwaukee Business Journal he expects this year’s crowd to be about average.
