Reno's Street Vibrations festival was marred once again by apparent motorcycle gang violence. This time three bikers assassinated another rider at speed on interstate 80. Police closed the interstate for about 6 hours creating quite a traffic snarl until midnight. Road is open now so the hills are alive with the sound of supposedly some 50,000 V-twins droning their way back home. Several years ago there was a gang on gang shoot out inside one of our casinos so yesterday's violence might be retaliation

Yea, heard that on the radio just this AM. A bad few like this and it could destroy the whole event.
We were passing through Reno during this event back about 4 years ago. We were camping in an RV park and riding our Bicycles around seeing all the HAWGS. Pretty neat event.
As we were leaving Reno, out on the freeways some of the Chopper guys were doing bad things on the freeways. Well over 100 mph following, chasing and racing, dodging through traffic, riding on the shoulders...... We were saddened then and made the comment that those destroy the good of having the "Street Vibrations Festival"... Think about Hot August Nights..

Sad case. At least they were killing their own kind. It would be horrible if they were killing by standers, but it's just sad when they kill each other. Sorry, can't help how I feel about this.
