My wife always hated riding under that bridge.... now I will never get her to ride at Hodges with me.....

I really hope the man who was shot is okay and the Thief is caught soon.

In Portland bikers on the Springwater trail are assaulted, raped, stabbed, kidnapped and raped, shot, & killed on a regular basis. I think the solution is providing yet more services to enable yet more crack heads. In Portland if you squat in the same spot for x-amount of days you can sit in on that neighborhoods/townships/counties council and your vote counts. You can't make this **** up.

Without links to articles with actual statistics to back up the term "regular basis" you are making that up.

Yeah, there's some range in semantics there, maybe I should of said with alarming frequency. Accurately would be to state everytime I turn on the news. The latest to memory that stands out is a crack head that randomly hit a citizen in the head several times with a hammer. The best part is he already attacked another person in the head with a hammer, was arrested and jailed but in someone's infinite wisdom was set free to do it again.
I've personally been using the Springwater trail for many years, it currently resembles something out of a post apocalyptic film, seriously.

Damn that sucks! Glad the biker got away and hope he's ok. Too bad we cant just carry a small pistol on us without applying for a concealed carry permit and waiting forever. I'm sure many of us ride alone quite often in remote areas and crazy **** can happen. Stay safe out there peeps!

You are not going to get one in San Diego county. Not a chance. Sheriff Gore will not issue them. California is a "May issue" state and it doesn't happen in San Diego unless you are a FOB: Friend of Bill (Gore), and/or are rich and make a hefty donation to his next re-election campaign.

What are you going to do? Pretend you are Dirty Harry and draw on someone who already has you in his sights? In this case, before he would have even had the opportunity to reach for his gun, he would have been shot. Now perhaps you either would have been dead with the bad guy getting a new gun AND your bike, or the same damn outcome.

This isn't a fvcking video game or movie.

Yes, my future wife is downstairs... Do I tell her?! That's crazy because that corridor is used by so many people. On any day at any time it's hard to make it from the street to the base of the walking bridge without seeing at least a couple people, especially in summer
