Observant motorcycle salesmen help snag suspected identity thief

An alleged fraudster was caught in the act Friday thanks to a team of quick-thinking motorcycle salesmen.

Police say 43-year-old Chad DuBois tried to fraudulently purchase a motorcycle using someone else’s identity at Moramoto in Pinellas Park, but when a salesman noticed something wasn’t right with his driver’s license, he called police and DuBois was arrested. He now faces numerous fraud charges.

Motorcyclist Wins Australian Commuter Challenge

Two wheels best.

What’s your preferred method for commuting? If you love getting exercise on the way in, and you don’t have too far to go, riding your bicycle can be a great way to go. Ebikes are cool, too, and are more forgiving if you’re not keen on getting super sweaty during your commute.

Kawasaki expected to unveil electric motorcycle next week

At the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show next week, Kawasaki is expected to unveil three new motorcycles. While the first two will likely fall into their sport and adventure touring categories, the third has been the subject of wider speculation but very well may be the company’s first true electric motorcycle.

This wouldn’t be the first time Kawasaki took to the world’s foremost motorcycle show to unveil its electric ambitions.

Just two years ago at the last EICMA show before the pandemic, Kawasaki wowed onlookers with the first public revealing of its electric motorcycle ambitions.

A prototype electric motorcycle was unveiled as part of an EV development project, but little was known about the bike at the time.
