im a biker that rides the so-called crotch rockets and we are not gangs for the most part all bikers get along...so i dont know where bubbadukeforpresident is getting his info
question_why Feb 20, 10:18 a.m.
I wonder what the odds are that 2 bikers at the same club encounter problems with the same suspects (or even different ones) the same night 8 miles apart; 10 minutes apart. If it is the same people, how did they track the 2nd biker and find him 8 miles away? Odds of it being different people pretty far out also. Seems more likely that something in the story isn't adding up. I would love to know more about the altercation at the bar.

Bikers are pretty cool, except for the gangs that ride the crotch-rockets. Harley riders will leave you alone as long as you leave them alone.

So if a guy or gal on a bike is wearing a "patch".. they MUST be outlaws...hmmm.... explain that to the GoldWing Road Riders Association(GWRRA) members..... folks, please educate yourselves before you show how little you know.

"Been knowing Bikers all my life . . . Its not the Old Bikers you need to worry about" Hmmmmmmm?

Show a little respect, Been knowing Bikers all my life, Lived in Fayett Nam back when Hay st was alive,,,Its not the Old Bikers you need to worry about,, Its the New Wanta Be's and they dont have a clue
stymieindurham Feb 20, 8:06 a.m.
Wouldn't want to be the suspect. Fayett P/D may identify you but, the "club" will take care of the punishment.

Wildpig amuses me. Like a clown. I hope they catch the person/people responsible for this before it gets any more out of hand.

The shooter of the HA should just go ahead and turn himself in if he's not a member of another outlaw group. If he's found, FPD will never have to worry about making a case. And "Disabled Veteran" is right. It's not having a biker patch that makes you an outlaw, it's the club that's ON the patch.
Disabled Veteran Feb 19, 3:20 p.m.
wildpig777 You seem to have the perception that all patch holders are 1%'ers. That's not true. I'm a patch holder in a military motorcycle club. That doesn't make me a 1%'er. You might want to google the differences between 1%'ers, Outlaw motorcycle clubs and regular riding clubs. Please stop trying to make this seem like more than it is.

I am not afraid of the Hell's Angels. I am afraid of traffic in Fayetteville. Everyone seems to think they are the only person on the road. Scary.
Disabled Veteran Feb 19, 2:21 p.m.
Not sure why Moderator won't post what I said but here goes again! This looks like some kind of street gang ritual. Not directed at any particular motorcycle club. But all bikers in general. The best defense for us Bikers is to be aware of our surroundings while riding. Try not to ride alone. Stay alert, stay alive. Let the police do their jobs. No vigilante justice.

U can bet Fayetteville will b seeing angels from all over but none will b fromheavon

I sure glad I don't live in Fayetteville. The Hell's Angels are definitely not a group to have out looking for revenge. While they are not the bunch they once were, there are still a LOT of them around and I wouldn't be surprised if they quickly converge in Fayetteville soon.

"Not sure why they think they're connected..." - Scubagirl
TWO incidents involving motorcyclists being shot at in one night, one fatality shot and the other shot at and run off the road? You don't see a possible connection of someone targeting people on motorcycles?? Really?

Katie Bar the Door! Store your food, hide your daughters, and stack some cash. These guys don't play. Period. Stuff just got real in Fayetteville for whoever is responsible. These guys are gonna be all over that town like a bad rash, and they wont stop until they get some payback, unless times have changed since their heyday. I am literally in a state of disbelief that they have resurfaced after, what, 30-plus years? I'm old enough to remember when it was those guys you had to worry about on the Boulevard after dark. I even remember when they used to hang out at the Biscuit kitchen that used to be on Santa Fe Drive across from Hardee's.

This Fayetteville sounds like a lovely town.
wildpig777 Feb 19, 12:10 p.m.
look for H A to come to fayetteville and resolve the murder of a brother,, thats how it rolls in the patchholder world.
lilsqaw05 Feb 19, 9:57 a.m.
Several months ago bikers in Fayetteville, were targets of a group that would run them off the roads or chase them to cause a wreck. If you ride please don't ride alone and be aware of your surroundings.
Scubagirl Feb 19, 9:00 a.m.
Not sure why they think they're connected but regardless hope those responsible for both events are quickly caught and tried
Rebelyell55 Feb 19, 8:56 a.m.
Second that, who ever this is needs to be gotten off the street.
sayitoutloud Feb 19, 8:38 a.m.
Hope they find the person that did this soon.
