My take: This is one of those stories where I wish they put the details of what kind of motorbike the guy had and what kind of gun he was shot with. The story’s always in the details!

In any case, I know a lot of readers don’t like loud motorbikes. And I know a couple members with loud motorbikes. Let’s just hope they don’t cross paths.
