Ocala motorcycle club ride ends in tragedy when 80-year-old rider dies in crash

ANTHONY — An 80-year-old motorcycle rider was killed and another rider, age 74, was injured late Tuesday morning when they crashed in a rural section of northeast Marion County.

The Florida Highway Patrol no longer includes names in its news releases. The agency only gave the men’s ages and said both were from Ocala.

The motorcycles – one riding in front of the other – were westbound on Northeast 90th Street Road about a mile east of Baseline Road (State Road 35/Northeast 58th Avenue.)

Motorcycle ride fundraises for injured Phoenix Officer Tyler Moldovan

Hundreds of bikers gathered Saturday morning at American Legion Post 61 in Avondale for a motorcycle ride around the Valley to raise money for the family of Phoenix Police Officer Tyler Moldovan, who was shot multiple times during an early morning police investigation in December.

The motorcycle ride began at the post near Dysart Road and Western Avenue around 10 a.m.

“We actually had a huge turnout. We had originally, just from this post, 251 riders but other riders joined from separate posts. So there was well over 300 riders that came out,” said Jason Emm, president of American Legion Post 61.

Ride raised thousands for Moldovan and family

Motorcyclists had to pay a $20 participation fee to join the ride-along, which led bikers east on Interstate 10 to Phoenix Police Department Headquarters where they did a rally around the station to show support for Officer Moldovan. The route also

See Full Image Gallery >>

PALM DESERT, Calif. — The 2022 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak comes from a brand with a complex relationship with the mountain course from which it takes its name. Of course, Pikes Peak means different things to different people. Ask rally legend Walter Röhrl, and he’ll regale you with tales of breaking the 11-minute barrier in the bonkers Audi Sport Quattro S1. Talk to reigning motorcycle record holder Rennie Scaysbrook, and he’ll describe the two-wheeled terror of wrangling the Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 up the mountain in a mere 9 minutes, 44 seconds.

Though Ducati was a relative latecomer to the event, the Bologna brand racked up 7 class wins at Pikes Peak between 2008 and 2018, inspiring the brand’s first Pikes Peak edition Multistrada model in 2018. It was essentially a snazzy livery package, but the PP edition was notable because it marked the

Christian Bale

The actor who famously played Batman and many other memorable roles apparently loves to ride motorcycles. However, his wife convinced him to not ride on public roads after his daughter was born. Bale kept racing bikes on the track until he was in an accident, then promised to stop doing that as well, hanging his helmet up for good. Sad.
