Cyril Huze About Billy Lane

I read a lot of posts and heard a lot of comments about Choppers Inc. Billy Lane’s tragic story. I didn’t intend to publish anything about it, but a lot of people have been asking what I think of Billy. So here is my first and last public comment about him. At some point in our lives, we all make mistakes with more or less consequence. Billy made some bad decisions, none of which he can take back. Billy, his friends, family & Gerald Morelock’s friends & family will all have to live with this tragedy for the rest of their lives. I personally know Billy from a time when he was a new builder and was still unknown in the motorcycle industry. Public image can be quite different from reality. I consider Billy a brother of my industry, a fellow builder, and I won’t kick a brother when he is down. Unfortunately, Billy cannot erase this accident. I am however convinced that as soon as it will be possible for him to do so, Billy will act proactively to turn the lesson of this tragedy into a positive message for others.

    thanks sandie. we got off to a shaky start but i realize that we’re seeing things from a similar perspective. i got your back… got some catching up to do…

    Cyril, maybe it’s time to pull the plug on this blog. I know that I signed off on this one earlier this month, but thought I’d check it out again out of curiosity (well, that and a cold that keeps mr out of the shop). Let’s talk about the bikes. Let’s put this pissing contest out to pasture. It’s time.

    Chopperchick if Billy goes to Texas I hope he’s drunk driving a tank and kills you and your guy……but if he does make sure you tell your family it is okay to drive drunk and kill people so they don’t sue. Let the Prosecutor know not to press charges because it is okay with you if people with no license drink,drive and KILL. Probation is enough for a life they them.

  5. 5 ChopperChick Jan 25th, 2007 at 5:44 pm

    Sandie you are such a poser if you think Texas Chopper means you are from Texas. You really are misinformed as others on here have said. Go back to watching Oprah and eating bonbons. Maybe you and Lame Ass Rider should get together since you are both so filled with hate.

  6. 6 ChopperChick Jan 25th, 2007 at 6:01 pm

    I would never tell ANYONE I hope they are killed, even a loser like Sandie.

    I’m having a hard time understanding why someone would buy billy lane merchandise and take their out of town friends to his shop and then come to this site and want him destroyed for life. Why would you drive buy his ocean front town house? Sandie should go to and debate with beachloser on this isssue. I guess i’ll be labeled a lane ass kisser for this post but sandie, and L.A. rider have to be labeled lane haters. If one is called an ass kisser then the person speaking has to be a hater it’s that simple. Most of the people speaking negatively talk over and over about the police report. This shows their lack of intelligence. We all know Lane has broken the law and is in deep shit and that’s his problem. the outcome won’t affect you or me. This tragedy is a lesson to all of us to keep your head on your shoulders and don’t screw up your life. When you are on top of the world, try to focus and stay there. Be aware that you can go from first to worst in a split second. People are jealous of lane’s fame plain and simple. T.V. has made this blog possible. Otherwise we would only know Arlen Ness,JP cycles, and Dennis Kirk. “Jesse Who?” stickers would really look stupid. The “Haters” have already paid billy lane’s defense team by tuning into the discovery channel and taking their friends to his shop and buying books for themselves. It’s too late to boycott his products you dumb asses. I guess billy lane deserves the max punishment and civil penalties then we will all feel good and be able to sleep at night. The only time we will feel like shit will be when someone close to us is faced with a horrific situation. When that happens we need to stay strong and remember to fry the S.O.B. Let’s all buy plane tickets for the trial and testify that billy lane bikes suck. Or that he has screwed us over on deals (don’t forget you dealt with him because you wanted to be somebody and feel important around your friends.) The morelock’s hating billy lane is justified, but what is everybody eles’s motivation.

    To everybody. I never censored anyone on my blog and everybody can freely comment on any info I am posting, and then debate with others. I just wish that nobody forgets that you are talking about a tragic story for everybody involved. By respect for all parties, I think that these cat fights should stop. Like fellow Blogger Mike Odom told me today, "ultimately it will come down to what the 12 selected members of the jury decide, not what you or I or anyone else in the industry think". You can continue to debate, but please do it with respect for those who are suffering and for each other on this Blog . Thank you. Cyril.

    THANK YOU!!! I’ve just been sitting back and keeping my mouth shut. It is amazing to me how much people will argue when they can’t see each other. They probably would like each other and would get along if they met in person. I really enjoy your blog (the whole thing), keep up the good work.

    Thanks, Noodles

  11. 11 sandie Jan 25th, 2007 at 8:42 pm

    Chopperchick if probation is good enough for Billy killing a fellow biker. It is good enough if he kills somebody in your family or you. You are the one who said that you hope he gets probation. Read your post. You are the loser with the comment you made and a pretty goofy one at that!!!

  12. 12 ChopperChick Jan 25th, 2007 at 9:48 pm

    Cyril, you have shamed me. You are right of course. I apologize. Much respect to you.

  13. 13 sandie Jan 25th, 2007 at 9:53 pm

    I like u Noodles!! Is it cold there?? Chilly here folks are waering sweatshirts, thermals, chaps and leather jackets. Glad u are back.

  14. 14 Noodles Jan 26th, 2007 at 12:54 pm

    I never left, I just didn’t have anything to add. Northern Cal. is having a real cold spell. I don’t have a heated booth so it has really slowed me down. I went to my cabin last week and it was 4 degrees at night and no snow, usually I have at least 5 feet by now. hopefully will get snow soon or fire will be a real danger this summer. Phone is ringing gotta go

  15. 15 sandie Jan 26th, 2007 at 4:04 pm

    CHEVYSMALLBLOCK: This is for the comment you made on January 24th. It was a very stupid comment but if you want to check out a fact, I am going to give you a number to call to see how incorrect you were in making your stupid comment. Call CARROLL Dist. Comapany, they are a Anheuser/Busch wholesaler. The phone number is 321-636-2377, the address is 270 Barnes Blvd. Rockledge, Florida 32955 ask to speak to RON CHABOT, Ron is the sales manager and off premise manager. Ron will verify for you that there was a sign on Labor Day Week-end the night Billy Lane killed Gerald Morelock. It is called Budwesiers “TOW & GO” program. Every holiday they get together with Anheuser/Busch & Triple A. EVERY SINGLE ANHEUSER/BUSCH Wholesaler in the “WHOLE” state of Florida particapate in this program. How it works, tell the bartender you are drunk and can not drive or call yourself and you will be picked up and whatever you got to the bar in or on will be towed with you to your destination. AT NO CHARGE!!!Please feel free to contact Ron. There were signs at “Coconuts on the Beach” and “Cheaters” as well. REMEMBER Billy’s wreck was on Labor Day week-end. Just another reason that Billy should not have been driving drunk and if Billy were not driving drunk…..Morelock would not be dead and everyone would not be on these blogs commenting on this very sad situation that would not have happened if Billy used his brain cells.

  16. 16 sandie Jan 26th, 2007 at 4:08 pm

    NOODLES: What do you think of House of Kolors vs. PPG candy apple red paint? Which would fade the most? I have been looking online and asking everybody who paints cars and bikes. Seems like the majority tells me House of Kolors has the better looking color in the end…..but nobody says which fades the least. Remember this is a mostly sunny, hot and salt in the air state.

  17. 17 ChopperChick Jan 26th, 2007 at 4:35 pm

    Does anybody else hear the theme music from the Exorcist? I’m out.

  18. 18 Noodles Jan 26th, 2007 at 4:52 pm

    I use both, House of Kolors is what I use for candys and heavy flake colors. I use PPG for solid or light flake colors, so basicly I mix and match. I like PPG’s DCD35 clear and it goes over everything I do. Both brands hold up excellent, I haven’t had any problems with either of them. Niether of them like this cold weather so it’s slow going.


  19. 19 sandie Jan 27th, 2007 at 10:39 pm

    Noodles:Made a decision…went with House of Kolors.I can’t wait.

  20. 20 Chevy Small Block Hammer Jan 28th, 2007 at 1:47 am


    Ron says you are ugly and lame. Call him and ask him.

  21. 21 sandie Jan 28th, 2007 at 2:57 pm

    CHEVY SMALL BLOCK HAMMER: I did call Ron and spoke to him. He did not say such a thing. Guess you lie. I am willing to meet you there and we can ask Ron together. All that was discussed was thr Budweiser & Triple A TOW & RIDE program for the Sate of Florida. What I wrote is true and Billy Lane’s name was not mentioned at all. Just had to reply to your comment on calling you a limo. You are someone who opens mouth and puts foot in. As far as buying anything from Choppers, Inc. My 15 year old nephew wanted the book. I’ve certainly not spent another cent at Choppers, Inc. You are probably ugly.

  22. 22 Chevy Small Block Hammer Jan 29th, 2007 at 3:59 am


    Meet you there next harvest moon. Ron asked if you could wear a lot of makeup so he does not have to see ur ugly mug. Make sure there is a lot of Budweiser there (many cases or kegs) and a flat bed tow truck paid for by Budweiser. I’m gona get hammered on Ron’s dime and have em tow my Lamborghini Gallardo home to Palm Beach. See you at the Super Bowl, or probably not.

    Como dicen el squak de las perras de Stipid siempre el más ruidoso. Nadie aquí cuida lo que dice su asno de la puta. Cierre la cogida para arriba para un cambio.



  23. 23 sandie Jan 29th, 2007 at 9:40 am

    Cyril. You might want to call the Bud dist. in Rockledge and speak to their sales manager and off premise manager. He says he has never spoke to Hammer. Nor has anyone called his office. Thought you only wanted facts. Seems this guy has a problem. Hammer lives in the United States and I assume his is a citizen. It is not a good thing making quotes that were not made to him and naming people who have never spoke to anyone. Your site is being monitored and apparntly Bud does not like quotes they DID NOT make. Hammer can think what he wants to think.It is wrong to say other people{Ron Chabot} say things they did not say. I agree with the advertising your own blog regarding other blogs. Maybe the guy up above who said it was time to pull the plug on this site is right. Everyone has stated how they feel and as Mike Odom stated, it will come down to 12 jurors. Budweiser has attornies for “EVERYTHING”. I was also informed they can track Hammer by his computer site. Learn something everyday. Check with Bud yourself. My comment is true and correct. Hammer….well he made up a lie and quoted somebody he has never talked too. Bud said that you are responsible for what you allow on your site. Budweiser is quite proud of their Tow & Go Program. They feel strongly it saves lives and keeps folks out of jail. Hammer’s comments were not taken lightly.

  24. 24 Iowalowrider Jan 29th, 2007 at 4:27 pm

    Nice post Cyril. Thanks for letting everybody have an opinion and for allowing them to express it here. After reading your last post I was curious about what was going on at the beach cruiser. They are visiting your blog more than their own. lol The “who cares” stats are posted and defended but much to my surprise a violent attack is made towards “Slim.” Of course Slim is refered to as “slime” and will not be allowed to respond. Peter is pissed off that slim has exposed him. I hope the BeachCruiser checks himself into a clinic for a mental evaluation very soon. Slim posted on this site and the beach responded on his site. How low is that.
    I see there’s a slide show of good looking but none the less average gals to provoke interest in joining the site for $12.00 In my opinion the Beach seems to be a drama queen and craves conflict constantly. He needs to find a way to deal with his big ego and accept the fact that people don’t have to see things his way.

  25. 25 Cyril Huze Jan 29th, 2007 at 4:46 pm

    I wrote politely to Beach & Train telling them that they create their own problems. They should apologize to all my readers. But they even refuse to post my answer. If they have no respect from so many it’s their own fault.

  26. 26 sandie Jan 29th, 2007 at 9:32 pm

    Cyril: Most people are not honorable, respected and honest like you. You sir, command respect. You have proven that you are a loyal friend to your close friends. You can be depended on when needed. I commend you. But, I do not agree with people “HAMMER” just making untrue statemenents. Ron would lose his job if he made such comments to “HAMMER”. Budweiser is most certainly the “KING” of beer and they command high standards for their employees. You as a employee for Carrol Distributors represent Carrol. Employees in Ron’s position would not tell Hammer and did not tell Hammer “ANYTHING”. Ron only explained the TOW & GO programs on holidays. I am sure your leytter to Beach & Train was polite but maybe they did not understand you being a gentleman.

  27. 27 sandie Jan 30th, 2007 at 6:22 pm

    Cyril:I clicked on books on the right lower side of your blog and ended up on is that where it takes you? I was expecting a online store for you??? Did I click the wrong place? Or…did I end up at the right place?

  28. 28 Cyril Huze Jan 30th, 2007 at 6:38 pm

    You ended up at the right place. We don’t carry all these books. So, we send you to Amazon for your purchases.

  29. 29 Noodles Jan 30th, 2007 at 9:41 pm

    Beach & Train just don’t seem professional or ethical. Glad I saved the twelve bucks, I’ll use it for something special like Mc Donalds, Hah!!!!!!!!

  30. 30 sandie Jan 31st, 2007 at 9:05 am

    Noodles: It’s “COLD” you should have gone to “Wendy’s” and had chili. Last few days everyone has made chili in Florida. I do not want to eat chili again till next winter!!! It is 8 AM here and the heat is on!!!! I am glad I saved my twelve dollars too!!!

  31. 31 Chevy Small Block Hammer Feb 1st, 2007 at 3:08 am


    Sorry for my comments about Budweiser.I know they will hunt me down and put me in debtors prison if I do not retract my past comments therefore I do. As a peace offering I e-mailed them to see if they can get approval for the Clydesdales to come over and service you. This should help to alleviate your hatred for Billy Lane,

    Buonas noches amante del sexo del caballo,


  32. 32 sandie Feb 1st, 2007 at 9:26 am

    ChevySmallBlockHammer: The word small in your name is something you have most likely heard from “MANY women”. You lied and could not stand the fact my comment on Tow & Go was correct. You did not like the fact that Billy had suspended license, did not have to drive but chose to do so. If Billy would not have been behind the wheel Morelock would not be dead. I do not hate Billy Lane. I hate what he did. As Mike Odom and Cyril agreed above it will ultimately be up to 12 jurors to decide Lane’s fate. I want him to answer in court the same as you and I would. Be truthful no not make comments that YOU say other people made when they DID NOT and especially when you are telling a “LIE” and know you are lying. See you at the Super Bowl. GO BEARS!!!!!!! I bear you no ill will. We live in the USA, land of the free and you are entitled to your thoughts, for this we should all be thankful. When you can read thank a teacher. When you can read in English thank a MARINE. With that I bid you farewell. Be safe in Miami.

  33. 33 Noodles Feb 1st, 2007 at 4:55 pm


    Diplamatic, very diplomatic

  34. 34 sandie Feb 1st, 2007 at 5:43 pm

    Thanks Noodles! I never thought I’d see the day I would be telling somebody I hope you get “SNOW”……but I hope you do see snow. It is awful seeing the fires out west in the summer. Nothing much worse than losing your home. I have relatives in upstate New York, Saratoga Springs and they have had absolutely no snow accumunlation this year and not much to speak of last year. They spend more money on snowmobiles than we do on our bikes!! Last year less than 5 miles were put on their snowmobiles and this year they have not been out of the garages. The weather has been “ODD” the past two years.

  36. 36 C.C. Ryder Feb 1st, 2007 at 10:16 pm

    Sandie, I’m “that guy up above” that you mentioned in your 1/29/07 post. I didn’t say to pull the plug on the site, just that the Lane blog was beat to death; time to move on. Gotta go with Odom & Cyril on that one. Anyway, ya’ll are talkin’ about the weather and paint, so I guess that’s a step in the right direction. FYI, it’s rained a lot this winter in Georgia, and friggin’ paint won’t dry. Glad somebody’s enjoyin’ life.

  37. 37 sandie Feb 1st, 2007 at 11:46 pm

    C.C.RYDER: Cyril has many sites on his blogs to read and comment. If it is time to move on ….you can go to one of Cyril’s other blogs. You are free to move on. Sorry if I mistook what you meant. But, nobody makes you read this blog. “LEAP, AND THE NET WILL APPEAR”. Again, sorry I mistook your comment but happy reading elsewhere. Guess you are getting all the rain that many other states need. It is sure unfortunate the good lord doesn’t spread the rain and snow around. Best Regards to you!!

  38. 38 Noodles Feb 2nd, 2007 at 4:46 pm

    Cyril, Sandie and all others in Florida,

    I hope you all are OK after last nights storm. My thoughts are with you all.

    Best Regards,


  39. 39 sandie Feb 2nd, 2007 at 5:38 pm

    All is well in Central Florida. We just has a lot of rain and wind. I am like 45 miles south of Kennedy Space Center, in the middle of Cocoa Beach and Vero Beach. Weather is strange for this time of year. There are plenty of people who need your thoughts and prayers and they have mine as well.

  40. 40 Noodles Feb 2nd, 2007 at 6:02 pm

    thats good to know, I guess it’s weird weather everywhere. Here it is extremely cold with no rain or snow. Take care of everybody out there.


  41. 41 Cyril Huze Feb 2nd, 2007 at 9:01 pm

    Huze & Crew are fine. In Cincinnati for V-Twin Dealers Expo.

  42. 42 Noodles Feb 2nd, 2007 at 10:11 pm


    Great to know, Have fun at the Expo


  43. 43 Chevy Small Block Hammer Feb 2nd, 2007 at 11:34 pm


    You have begun to bore me so this will probably be my last post on this thread. I only started responding to you after your arrogant posts to Chopperchick, which she did not deserve.

    I guess the sarcasm of my last post was not evident to you, try looking up the word in the dictionary.

    Anheiser Busch conducts their tow and go at certain times, usually during the holidays. It is a laudable goal, but lets face it, they do it for the good publicity and to help alleviate liability for those who over consume their product. I would love to see the statistics of how many cars they pay to have towed every year. AB would need their own national towing fleet if they towed everyone’s cars home after they overconsumed.

    Your threat about AB monitoring blogs on websites such as Cyril’s is a joke. They may (but doubtful) monitor it to see if they have any marketing ideas they can glean from it . The idea they would spend significant resources to try to hunt down a blogger for being critical of their tow and go program is a joke. As Chopperchick implied you really do need prozac and therapy. Get off the fatboy you are sitting on while you read this and get some help.

    Finally, in regards to my manhood, I am quite well endowed. There is a saying “Even the largest ships look small in the Panama Canal”. One of the Clydesdale horses sent to your home e-mailed me in horsesese and said you complained he was too small also. Maybe we can bring a Mack Truck over, that might be big enough for you.

    Je suis fait vous parlant maintenant chienne foutue folle. Obtenez de l’aide foutue.


  44. 44 sandie Feb 3rd, 2007 at 2:22 am

    HAMMER: “YOUR ACTIONS,AND YOUR ACTIONS ALONE DETERMINES YOUR WORTH! I believe if you start at the beginning of the posts, you will see who made nasty comments first. I would say an outsider who read this post in order would say Chopperchick. I also say if one reads in order posted you made the first nasty comment, then you lied. You were caught in your lie. No matter how big you claim “something” is in your pants it does not mean you are considerate person. Nor does anyone care. We know you make up stories. “Nobody” is refused a ride on holidays under the Tow & Go Program. People do not use it, that is why on holidays people go to jail for DUI’s and accidents are up. No, they are not montioring the site but were surprised “YOU” would make-up such a fib, that easily can be checked with a simple phone call or visit. Billy Lane was not mentioned or the wreck that took Mr. Morelock’s life. If Billy Lane is your friend, you sir most definitely do have the right to defend him. I commend you for sticking by him and agreeing with Lane’s actions. I also have the right to think his actions that fateful night were so wrong that somebody lost their life. I hope this terrible thing that happened to Mr. Morelock doesn’t happen to you. Ride safe and enjoy the wind blowing thru your hair and the sun on your face.And….with that I bid you a farewell.

  45. 45 sandie Feb 3rd, 2007 at 2:24 am

    HUZE & CREW have a good time and have some pictures to post and stories to read. BE SAFE!

  46. 46 Pop Feb 3rd, 2007 at 10:59 am


  47. 47 Noodles Feb 4th, 2007 at 4:54 pm

    Hey Pop,

    Are these wows sarcastic or are you surprised at the post? Just curious, Have a great day.


  48. 48 Pop Feb 4th, 2007 at 11:22 pm

    I’m always amazed at how things unfold. No telling how people will cover ground. People got 99.99% identical DNA but you would never know it considering the differences.

  49. 49 sandie Feb 5th, 2007 at 1:04 am

    Noodles: Good question to Pop, did you get a answer? I din’t figure out Pops answer to you.

  50. 50 ChopperChick Feb 6th, 2007 at 11:07 am

    Today is Billy’s birthday, so if you are reading this Billy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABY!!!

  51. 51 sandie Feb 6th, 2007 at 11:33 am

    Gerald Morelock will not be celebrating anymore birthdays, will he?

  52. 52 Bobber4Ever Feb 6th, 2007 at 12:20 pm

    It’s still his birthday. So, happy birthday Billy.

  53. 53 snoopy Feb 6th, 2007 at 1:59 pm

    Happy 37th birthday Billy. Hopefully you will have many more and I hope you will be a lot happier than you appear to be now. Hold your head up and know that the people that have always supported you are not going to turn their backs on you because you made a big mistake.
    I wouldn’t turn my back on a family member or friend if they made the same mistake and I’m not going to turn my back on you.
    Yes, if Gerald Morelock was a friend or family member of mine I would show the same dedication to him and his family.

  54. 54 ChopperChick Feb 6th, 2007 at 2:40 pm

    Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about. Once a brother always a brother through hell or high water. Biker-lites don’t have it.

  55. 55 snoopy Feb 6th, 2007 at 3:05 pm

    I’ve been riding since 1994 and have went to many bike events. The one thing I have always liked is the feeling of brotherhood/sisterhood. Bikers are some of the most generous and friendly people in the world. Billy has done so much good with the charity work he does. He made a huge mistake but he has the ability to make a big difference in peoples lives. Anyone that has watched the Blood, Sweat and Gears DVD should agree.

  56. 56 ChopperChick Feb 6th, 2007 at 3:18 pm

    Snoopy, you are so right. Thanks for saying it.

  57. 57 Noodles Feb 6th, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    The same sentiments I posted way back. He aint perfect and he will pay somehow, but no crucifiction. But never turn your back on your own.


  58. 58 sandie Feb 7th, 2007 at 12:59 pm

    Absolutely….never turn your back on your own. We must remember that Morelock was one of our own. Gerry was on a two wheeler at the time of his death and was operating the two wheeler as he should have been. FHP accident investigators stated he was on the right side of his lane riding five feet from the white line. He was as far away from the double yellow, no passing lines painted on the middle of the highway as he should have been.

  59. 59 snoopy Feb 7th, 2007 at 3:01 pm

    I understand that. My loyalty is with the person I know (or a fan of)which is Billy Lane. I have nothing bad to say about Gerald Morelock.
    I don’t claim to be friends with BL. I have met and talked to him several times and exchanged a few e-mails. He has always been nice to me.
    I never met or talked to Mr. Morelock.
    I am very loyal to my family and friends no matter what they do. I am going to be loyal to BL because I have been a fan of his work for several years.
    I am not a fair weather friend or fan.
    This is a very sad situation for everyone involved.

  60. 60 sandie Feb 7th, 2007 at 3:56 pm

    Agreed snoopy. Even OJ has people who still golf with him. Understand where you’re coming from on your comment. I respect people who are loyal.

  61. 61 Noodles Feb 7th, 2007 at 4:49 pm

    Hey Sandie,
    To answer your question about Pop’s answer. I think he’s testing my smarts ( he seems to be quite educated), I had to think about it awhile. The answer could go both ways but I think he was inferring that he is surprised and thus the wows. Finally getting a little rain and it warmed up a bit so I best get some work done.


  62. 62 sandie Feb 7th, 2007 at 8:10 pm

    NOODLES: How dare your “SMARTS” be tested. Glad it is warming up enough to throw paint on. Today the Judge set the date for the Civil Trial in Morelock vs. Billy Lane and DC Corp. for August 20th. Lane’s and DC attorney’s tried to say they could not be ready. 4 & 1/2 months is not enough time for them? They will have had nearly a year to prepare. Judge said “too bad” he would be giving jury instructions first day and for them to be ready…… Well, we will have to talk about paint until then or see if the criminal trial goes first. Sad news is that the two children in the lead car Lane was passing when he killed Morelock are on the witness list for both trials. POOR KIDS!!!

  63. 63 garyc42660 Feb 7th, 2007 at 9:24 pm

    sandie your an idiot

    I don’t mind Pops testing my smarts, I like his posts. I’m in relax mode now and getting ready to go to my cabin on Friday and check on things up there. I’ll check back in a while.

    garyc42660:To state it correctly it is you’re “NOT” your. You sir, are free to think what ever you wish. We live in the land of the free!!! I’ll keep my thoughts on you to myself. Noodles: I like Pops posts too. Hope you have a good weekend and do relax!!

  66. 66 snoopy Feb 7th, 2007 at 11:05 pm

    I’m not trying to be confrontational. I’m really interested in how you get your information. Do you live in Brevard Co.? Do you work for the court system?

  67. 67 Noodles Feb 7th, 2007 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks Sandie,
    I will try to do both.

    Gerald morelock, no more birthdays. The little kids go to trial and testify. Life’s a bitch. Hindsight is 20/20 Sandy. More bad than good in this world. Gerald obeyed all the rules except for drinking. What if he had quit two beers sooner. Would this put him out of lane’s path? Who knows. Lets use the original timeline and say, Morelock takes the ditch and flys off the bike. We have plenty of witnesses like two little kids. what happens to Morelock? I mean he just got ran off the road and has been injured, He’s a victim right! Well I’d bet anything the officer’s first question is “Are you alright sir”, followed by “Have You Had Anything To Drink This Evening.” If Gerald had lived a DUI would have been issued and in all honesty a very tough road lies ahead for going after Billy. This would be another example of the system “failing us.”
    This case looks like a slam dunk. There’s more than enough evidence, but don’t forget N. Carolina dropped the ball. A prior DUI conviction on the record would be huge. The jury will find out morelock was over the legal limit and it will have an impact. I bet most of the potential jury pool has read about it in florida newspapers.

  69. 69 sandie Feb 8th, 2007 at 7:50 am

    North Carolina had no evidence except for the trooper. Lane refused the implied consent sobriety tests. The only witnesses were for Lane’s defense and they “KNEW” how much he had drank the day he was pulled over in North Carolina. There was no jury, it was heard by a judge. This judge felt there was not enough evidence to convict. Hense, Billy Lane’s drivers license were suspended from the time he handed them to the trooper. If you refuse sobriety tests twice, you lose your license for life. You guys should read the article in Florida Today newspaper. Check out that blog. Talk about a public lynching. Post there! You will get beat up there more than you beat up on me. You’re correct, Lane does have a tough way to go. Our actions have consequenses!!! Unfortunately, it does not matter if Morelock was drinking. The person who caused the accident by driving without license, speeding, passing on a double yellow line,hitting and killing someone in the opposite lane got the ticket. I also agree that it is a slam dunk. Not much has been put in the newspapers in Florida. Check out Read the article and post there if you dare. No ill will. You have the right to think as you wish. Yes,life is tough.

  70. 70 sandie Feb 8th, 2007 at 7:57 am

    Snoopy:Yes, I live in Florida. No, I do not live in Brevard County. I live in Indian River County. That is the next county south of Brevard. The court cases are on Brevard County Clerk of Court Records website.The arrest papers and FHP’s accident report are public record. I know a reporter who has gone to court for “every” hearing. They have been to court more than Lane. Lane was not there yesterday just his lawyers.

  71. 71 Iowalowrider Feb 8th, 2007 at 1:41 pm

    Two drunk Drivers were on the road. A horrible accident. Billy Lane killed the other drunk driver. By the way Sandy, I said if gerald had lived it would be a tough road FOR HIM suing Billy given the fact that he was also drunk at the time of the accident. Talk all you want about double yellow lines, suspended license, etc. My question is, Did Gerald have the right to be on his bike five feet from the white line going the speed limit after consuming alcohol and having a BAC over the limit? No one deserves to die in an accident. I know this first hand. My best friend was killed in a drunk driving wreck 9 years ago he was 21. My other buddy was driving and fell asleep. They were both intoxicated. My best friend was a big built guy who always liked to go have fun and talk everyone else into driving him to the bars. Peer pressure kept my buddy from getting a DUI but he paid the ultimate price in the end. The driver went to prison for over two years so I felt the death of two friends. While in jail the driver’s marriage fell apart and ended in divorce. His bitch didn’t comply with the for better or worse vows and cheated on him repeatedly. To make the best of his situation my friend taught other inmates to read and write it was the only way he could use his education from college. When released he was not allowed to teach in Iowa. The guy took his second chance at life and has made the most out of it. He is remarried with two children and has a good job.
    Billy lane didn’t hit St. Peter or a sober soccer mom, he hit another drunk driver. Neither one of these guys should have been on the road!!! I hope the ” discovery channel celebrity” gets a chance to redeem himself it will make the world a better place.

  72. 72 snoopy Feb 8th, 2007 at 1:44 pm

    I have tried checking the public records for Brevard Co. and I am apparently not using the correct site or I’m doing something wrong. Could you give me directions in how to find this info. Thank you!

  75. 75 Iowalowrider Feb 8th, 2007 at 3:34 pm

    Hey Sandie,
    why don’t you go drive by Lane’s house again or go peak inside the windows of choppers inc. and give us an update on what Billy is doing.(don’t forget to buy a book get it autographed and wish him a happy birthday) Reciting the police report is growing old. Go back to Stalking Billy and give us some new ideas.

  76. 76 sandie Feb 8th, 2007 at 3:49 pm

    Snoopy: Here is the site for Brevard County Clerk of Courts. There you have it. Click on Lane’s drivers license and that will take you to the criminal file. I will see if I can figure out how to post the FHP accident report. I have copies. FHP accident reports are public record and for a $1 per page they can be obtained. Cyril has visited with Mike Odom. If you go to Mike’s website you can read what happened in court yesterday. Mike has done extensive research and attended the court hearings as well. I don’t think Cyril would object to be telling you about Mike’s blog on Billy Lane. There is a great article on Mike’s site with Cyril. It is a good read. I am sure if you read the Florida Today, Brevard County Florida’s newspaper article regarding yesterdays court hearing setting the trial date and read the attached blog you will see Billy is no hero or idol. Remember, this is Lane’s hometown paper. People feel very strongly that he should go to jail. There are some pictures of Billy there for you to look at too.

    Thank you. You would think the people in his home town would be a little more supportive of one of their own. I had never heard of Melbourne Fla. until I started seeing Billy’s bikes and found out where his shop was.
    He has collected toys for the Marines toys for tots and he collected food for a local food bank at Thanksgiving, in his shop. It sounds like he tries to support his community. If I was him, when all is said and done, I’d move to another town.
    Again, I am very sorry about the loss of Gerald Morelock.

  80. 80 sandie Feb 8th, 2007 at 8:38 pm

    Snoopy: Every fire department, several banks, three Harley Davidson dealerships, Publix [local grocery store], Winn Dixie [local grocery store] and many business owners, and I am sure that I have forgot somebody….like the Shriners who also collected for Toys for Tots. Many business owners collected for the Food Banks as well….the post office had a cart as you walked into the building to put food in. Yes, Lane did some good work. We all have done good work. We donate food and toys for the Bike Runs around the holidays. We have poker runs for fellow bikers whose families need aid. It is a shame that people feel so strongly against Lane now. I guess Lane’s actions are why they feel the way they do. After the North Carolina incident most of us would have taken a deep breathe and thanked God we got off a DUI and just lost our license for a year for refusing sobriety tests. I gather you found the court records and read the local newspaper with the locals comments. I found Cyril and Jesse James to build bikes more to my liking. I have family members, mostly young nephews who like Billy’s radical style. We can all think what we want. In the end it will be up to 12 jurors after the Judges instructions. I wish this had never happened. Both families, Lane’s and Morelock’s are suffering. For the record Melbourne is about twenty-five miles south of Kennedy Space Center. A super nice bike ride starts in Melbourne and you come down the mainland side on US HWY1 and ride about 20-25 miles to Wabasso[between Melbourne and Vero Beach) you cross a causeway that goes over the intracoastal, called Indian River and hit HWY A1A and go back North towards Kennedy Space Center. When you hit A1A going North you cross another causeway then you are riding by the ocean. Lane owns a townhouse there. You would know it was his because of the promotional DODGE RAMS and I mean “BIG DODGE RAMS” with customized paint jobs with Choppers, Inc., and the hugh Dodge Decals on the hood. One did not have to look for them….you could not miss them!! People were taking this ride for years before Lane moved here. Nobody was stalking him. If anyone wants to go spend their money on his merchandise, it is their right. Nobody stalks Lane. He is out in public all the time. You do not have to hunt for him. This is not a city like Miami or Orlando. Yes, maybe Lane will move…….but it will not be back to Miami. He was not liked much there.

  81. 81 DJ Chopper God Feb 8th, 2007 at 9:16 pm

    Sandie, PLEASE GET A LIFE!!! How many yards away from Billy must you stand according to the restraining order???

  82. 82 Norman Gregory Fernandez, Esq. Feb 8th, 2007 at 9:38 pm

    I agree with you Sandie that DC should have checked Lane out before they gave him or loaned him the truck. That is the whole point about Negligent Entrustment.

    With respect to the criminal part of the case, it will be up to a Jury to decide. In our country everyone is innocent until proven guilty. It is easy to convict someone based upon press statements, but it is a whole different matter to actually hear the evidence at trial.

    I will say this, if what I have heard and read is true, than they should fry Lane; he killed an innocent driver while driving intoxicated and on a suspended license. The only way to know if what we have heard and read is true, is to wait for the trial!

    On the civil end; these are the kind of cases that I do.

    With respect to Lane doing biker events; I am surprised to say the least. But then again, he has not been convicted of anything yet. If he gets convicted I am sure it will be a whole different matter.

    Norm, shouldn’t you be out chasing ambulances???

  84. 84 snoopy Feb 9th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    Do you think everyone that is convicted of manslaughter should “fry”? I believe in capital punishment for pre-meditated murder, but manslaughter?
    I am shocked that a lawyer would get on a blog sight and make such comments. I’m glad you only do civil cases.

  85. 85 ChopperChick Feb 9th, 2007 at 10:37 am

    What did you people do all day before this??? Can’t you have some human compassion for this man? Let Billy deal with his life and take a look at your own. How would you like to have every aspect of your private life gossiped about on the internet?

  86. 86 sandie Feb 9th, 2007 at 10:53 am

    I gather that would be the price of fame. Billy will receive a fair trial that is his right, a guarantee of the U.S. Constitution. I agree 100% with Norm’s comment. I am with Norm Fernandez, Esquire on this one. This lawyer has a very good web site. A true biker lawyer……….rides his own to events.

  87. 87 Bug Feb 9th, 2007 at 10:55 am

    All I have to say…what a load of BS…you people need to go get a life and leave this to the court system. If you don’t like the system…move to Russia!

  88. 88 Cyril Huze Feb 9th, 2007 at 10:56 am

    When a friend is suffering, the best thing to do is to hug him. It’s what I did when I met Billy last weekend in Cincinnati at the V-Twin Expo. No words necessary. Peace.

  89. 89 sandie Feb 9th, 2007 at 11:28 am

    Bug: WE LOVE THE COURT SYSTEM. We love the rights the Constitution affords everyone…rich or poor, black or white. Cyril: That is a good thing to give a friend a hug when they need one. Loyality is priceless….even if the friend is in the wrong. Peace!!

  90. 90 Norman Gregory Fernandez, Esq. Feb 9th, 2007 at 1:04 pm

    My attitude is simple; kill a biker; go to jail. It’s as simple as that.

    According to what has been reported; Gerry Morelock was riding a street legal scooter, when due to no fault of his own, a truck crossed a double yellow line and slammed into him head on, killing him instantly.

    It just happened to be Billy Lane that was the cager that killed Morelock who was on two wheels that day. We will know for sure after trial.

    I don’t care if is Martha Stewart, George Bush, or the Pope, that was driving that day. When cagers display a wanton and reckless disregard for the rights of bikers to share the same road as them, fry their asses.

    I am a biker lawyer. I handle motorcycle accident cases, do bikers rights cases, and write on motorcycle safety.

    It is a fucken slaughterhouse out their right now. I get daily reports of motorcycle accidents that occur throughout the nation. We are being slaughtered. What is worse is that many of these cagers walk away with a slap on the wrist or less. It seems that our lives do not matter because we are bikers. There is a perception amongst cagers that we deserve what we get because motorcycles are not safe. There is blatant discrimination going on against bikers throughout the nation because of the form of transportation that we choose to ride. This is bullshit!

    I myself was almost taken out by a negligent cager a few weeks ago. Luckily, I did not suffer the same fate as Morelock. I ended up with a torn hamstring muscle, foot injuries, and a pulled out lower back. It could have been worse.

    Billy Lane has not yet been convicted. I recently wrote an article about the case that you can find here:

    If he is convicted then all bets are off.

    I can understand that some on here are friends with Billy Lane, or are fans of Billy Lane. I don’t really know for sure what I would do if one of my friends were accused of what Lane has been accused of. I would probably defend them to the best of my ability in Court. I would probably give them some choice words too. I would never think of them the same.

    In this case, I look at the death of Gerry Morelock the same way I look at any other biker or motorcycle rider being killed by a cager; with disgust. It does not matter who the cager is. What makes this case novel is that is is alleged to have been caused by another biker, who is also famous.

    I will be riding this weekend here in Southern California. Many of you will also be riding wherever you are at as well. I wish you all a safe ride in the wind and I hope some fool does not cross the double yellow on you. Remember, any one of us could have been Gerry Morelock that day. May he rest in peace.

    Norman, I thought you wanted Billy Lane to get the chair? I hear ambulance sirens, ya better jump on yer bike!!!

  92. 92 DJ Chopper God Feb 9th, 2007 at 2:42 pm

    Cager = ambulance chaser. Bike blog = buisness opportunism for lawyer. Things that make ya go Hmmm.

  93. 93 Iowalowrider Feb 9th, 2007 at 5:17 pm

    I guess I don’t understand what’s so “innocent” about driving your Yamaha while intoxicated. He didn’t deserve to die, but he also has no right to be on the road over the legal limit. Chrysler has huge pockets that’s why you go after them. More MONEY. How many dependants does Gerald have? Why didn’t his wife file a suit? Is he single? How much money will satisfy his loss? None!!!! All the references to O.J. and Robert Blake are retarded. “The Cager’s get a slap on the wrist,” but lets fry one of our own fellow bikers?
    There are more accidents now because more people are riding bikes today. It’s the cool thing to do. Over half of these people need to get back to the golf course or office. It scares the shit out of me when I smell all the new leather and see the dealer t-shirts and new boots everywhere i go. A sober billy lane crossing the yellow line would have generated the same negative posts. Before the accident people bitched and moaned about his craftsmanship and were jealous of his fame. I think it’s cool that Norm is a biker adovcate and I’m sure he has a real passion for his work, but if a guy can afford to hire Kepler Funk that would be the way to go on both sides. I know Funk is no longer on board but the second, third, or fourth choices would still be better options. If Norm was a great lawyer then the Morelocks would have hired him for thier civil case.

  94. 94 Iowalowrider Feb 9th, 2007 at 5:29 pm

    D.J. Chopper I’m with you. Stalker’s should have to obey the restraining orders. Yet another example of the system failing us!

  95. 95 sandie Feb 9th, 2007 at 9:23 pm

    Iowalowrider: Kepler Funk is still on board. The firm of Funk,Szachacz & Diamond, LLC along with a second Law Firm are “both” Lane’s attornies in the criminal charges. Calender call, to set the trial date is before Judge Allawas at Viera Courthouse, Brevard County, Florida on March 23, 2007. By the way nobody has to “stalk” as you call it. All one must do is use their computer. Any information you desire is on the internet. I am with Norm, fry Lane’s butt. Dodge deserves to be sued for not keeping up with drivers license and driving records of people they loan promotional vehicles too!!!

  96. 96 Iowalowrider Feb 9th, 2007 at 10:49 pm

    I’m sure dodge’s lawyer’s will agree that you can’t operate your “moped” while intoxicated. I also add that dodge’s lawyer’s will probably be of a higher quality than Norm. I hate to disappoint you but they aren’t going to fry Billy Lane. Norm was hit by a cager recently so of course he is outraged. This is why he made the stupid comments.
    Why are you avoiding the fact that there were two drunk drivers? Your a hateful person Sandy. Listen to D.J. Chopper and GET A LIFE!

  97. 97 sandie Feb 10th, 2007 at 12:22 am

    Gerald Morelock had the right to live. He was in the proper lane. Nobody is avoiding the fact Morelock’s BAC was over the limit. Jo above on her Dec. 5 post was right. Norm was lucky wasn’t he compared to Mr. Morelock’s fate. Bad enough a careless driver was not paying attention. It could happen to any of us. As Norm says we will all be riding this weekend, Keep two wheels on the ground! RIDE SAFE!!!

  98. 98 Iowalowrider Feb 10th, 2007 at 12:28 am

    Hey Sandie,
    After Billy goes to jail you should go interview him! Don’t forget to have him sign your tits! The anger towards Billy’s actions is justified, but the hatred and obsession to want the man destroyed is just plain evil. I bet God will forgive Billy and that’s what counts.


    Sandie on (dec. 9th) said “Tar and Feather his ass.”


    Sandie on (dec. 26th) said “I do feel bad for everyone. I do not wish anyone bad luck. Nobody has the right to judge another human. I would do anything it took to keep myself out of jail. One has to feel a bit of sympathy. I was at San Remo restaurant in Melbourne, Florida, Billy came in with his parents and I felt sympathy because I heard comments from the wait staff. I was thinking that he had to eat too!!! Yes…we must stick by our family and friends.”

    Sandie on (Feb. 9th) says “I am with with Norm, fry lane’s butt.”

    With that I leave this blog. Have fun at the trial Sandie. I say Fry your Ass for being a complete moron. You’d be a bigger threat on the road sober than billy was drunk.

    Thanks Cyril for the posts and not censoring my opinions. It was appreciated.

  99. 99 Chevy Small Block Hammer Feb 10th, 2007 at 5:21 am

    Ok the hammer is back, You know u missed me Sandie!

    When I was young I had a cool motorcycle, I rode it everywhere and was almost killed many many times.

    I gave some thought to this issue, if Dodge did not give those promo trucks to Billy he would have probably stayed on the bike. Maybe they are now considered death dealers.

    There is something about a motorcycle, when u ride it u tend to have an instinct to avoid large vehicles like our ancestors avoiding large predators

    We miss u Billy, but now u have to face the specter of justice as we define it now. Best of luck to u my friend.

    Chopperchick I say hello to u, missed u of late

    Aspire a mi puente de mierda Sandie, usted son una puta verdadera de la concha.


  100. 100 sandie Feb 10th, 2007 at 10:39 am

    I spent the morning going thru Granny’s Bible reading DJCHOPPERS scriptures quoted above. Hate to say it……but one should practice what they preach. By the way I read the chapter you quoted not the scriptures. You are well read in the Bible. I have to say by your posts that you even knew how to quote the Bible and I am impressed by your knowledge of the Bible. You must have a little bit of faith. As I was reading… seems like maybe you googled or something to pick out scriptures that you wanted to use to benefit you and what you were writing to benefit you. Anyone who goes to church and is a believer reads the whole chapter and does not just pick out a verse to suit them. I am sure God is real proud of you. Hammer it is so cool. I thought you were a smart guy who spoke many languages…….but no in the world of computers……we can write anything in any language.

  101. 101 ChopperChick Feb 12th, 2007 at 11:43 am

    Hey, Hammer – hope all is well, my friend.

  102. 102 Debbie Coomer Feb 14th, 2007 at 1:59 pm

    I am appalled at all the Billy-haters! True, you have the right to say what you feel..As do we. “We” being the ones who do love and support Billy. Yes, he used poor judgement. Yes, an innocent man was killed. YES, Billy will live with this every day of his life. As will the Morelock Family. My heart goes out to all involved. Just because I think Billy is an awesome person and one helluva bike builder does not mean I feel he should be accountable. As humans we all have accountability. As humans, too, we all show just how poorly we make decisions. Neither you, nor myself is exempt from that flaw in our humanity. I don’t see the need to kick anyone when they are down. Billy went out of his way once to help me with something. I have met him many times, and even had a pic go to print in a mag. He autographed a photo of himself and presented it to my sister, who had just lost her husband. He was the ultimate Billy fan. This has endeared Billy to me EVEN MORE than I previously was. To those of you who are determined to make everyone else see things as you do…don’t try! Billy is an awesome man. He does so much for others; continuously raising money to help childrens charities. He uses his ‘star power’ to help others. I appreciate this! If you don’t, it’s your problem to deal with.
    Billy…hang in there. There are multitudes of people who wish you the best. Love ya, man!

  103. 103 sandie Feb 14th, 2007 at 3:40 pm

    A court with a judge and 12 jurors will decide the fate of Lane in the criminal trial. Then he faces the civil trial which is set to go. Then there may be omething to debate. This is a dead subject till the trials start. Billy had the ability to hire several lawyers to defend him. We will just have to wait to see how it plays out. The discussion has been beat to death.

  104. 104 Iowalowrider Feb 15th, 2007 at 5:20 pm

    Debbie is entitled to an opinion. So deal with it.

  105. 105 em Feb 19th, 2007 at 2:11 pm

    I was glad to see Cyril’s statement. My husband and I agree with him. Pointing fingers at anyone does not solve anything. We believe in not kicking a brother biker while he’s down.

  106. 106 sandie Feb 24th, 2007 at 2:07 am

    I guess we should “ALL” and myself included wait to see what evidence is presented in both trials and wait for the verdicts. My heart goes out to the Morelock’s and I say Billy Lane is lucky to have money for a battery of lawyers that most of us posting here could not afford. Hopefully Justice will prevail for both parties.

  107. 107 Iowalowrider Feb 26th, 2007 at 11:53 pm

    I still can’t believe the innocent victim was drunk. I’ll never understand why that is o.k.

  108. 108 bob Mar 6th, 2007 at 6:37 pm

    Iowalowrider, you really don’t have to understand. That is why both sides are represented by lawyers. I read some good information on a site called bikerlawblog. I don’t think anyone is saying it is okay for the victim, the fact the victim did not cause the wreck seems to be the issue. I am not a lawyer so I really do not know. There are many things about this case that is difficult to figure out.

  109. 109 Iowalowrider Mar 7th, 2007 at 1:11 am

    I agree Bob. It’s a tragedy that one man lost his life and the other will most likely lose his assets and identity. The fact that the victim was drinking doesn’t get brought up much because he wasn’t at fault in the actual accident. This is fine for the criminal trial but as far as the civil trial goes I don’t think Dodge should be held responsible due to the fact that the victim was operating while intoxicated. Just a thought.

  110. 110 Bob Mar 7th, 2007 at 2:35 pm

    Seems like there is a lot of intimation here. Folks should show each other respect and not say offensive things to and about each other. Cyril, his editors, webmasters and his readers should support everyone’s right to express their ideas and thoughts on this sad event. Events like this are sad. Like you said, one person is dead and another’s life will never be the same and he most likely serve jail time and lose assets. Everyone has the right to their opinion.Dodge is a really big corporation. I am sure they have very smart lawyers that get paid a lot more money than I will ever see in my life as a carpenter. I had to make payments on my bike, I do not have the talent or know how to fix anything on it. I have to rely on people that do know how. I can only dream of owning one of Cyril’s bikes. I do think rich or poor, black or white, biker or cager, male or female, we should love our neighbor and show respect.RIP GERRY MORELOCK. I did not know Gerry Morelock or do I know Billy Lane. I have never been to a event where Billy Lane has been.

  111. 111 John Mar 7th, 2007 at 10:16 pm

    All very interesting, but let’s face it- Billy fucked up, and any one of us in his shoes would mount a defense to protect our futures- in fact, we put the cash in his pockets to do so;


    OK, then how many people, in a similar position as Billy’s, have come forward in court and demanded that they be incarcerated for manslaughter, in the entire history of drunk driving?


    People expect Billy to throw himself on the stake- not gonna happen. He’ll be tried and found guilty, and the real legal process will emerge during his sentencing.

    Ultimately, Billy will lose all of his assets thru the civil court judgements to follow (no DC aid gonna happen in there), and once out of prison, he will wind up spending his days banging out metal at Jesse’s for cash under the table;

    That’s as good as legal justice gets in this country- end of story.

    It’s the system, stupid, and until we citizens decide to change the process, and let lawyers who can’t even spell properly (NORMAN) wag the dog, it will continue to spit out this seemingly unbalanced justice.

    BOTH the main players in this Opera are already effectively deceased;

    Fat lady just hasn’t sung yet.

    Any chance of an Ankle Bracelet Build-Off between Billy and Bill Janklow? Procedes to benefit the families…… hmmmmm……..

  112. 112 Bob Mar 8th, 2007 at 12:03 pm

    There is a very sad future is in store for Billy Lane. Jon you are right the people who stand in line to have Lane autograph some merchandise they paid too much for are the people paying for his expensive lawyers. I also agree with you that Dodge will leave Lane out there to hang on his own. A ankle bracelet build off would be a good show on Discovery but Discovery has backed away from Lane. You do not see them showing his shows. Janklow is out of jail anyway. He sure got lucky on his sentence. I do not think justice was served to Janklow. Justice is not always fair.

  113. 113 John Mar 8th, 2007 at 7:09 pm

    True, Bob, justice does not always seem fair; But unless we go back to an “eye-for-an-eye” system, which our current justice system is NOT, there will always be a perception of unfair equity from some point of view.

    Personally, I was very bummed about Janklow. I hung out in his circle a bit back in the 90’s, and I think people would be VERY surprised to learn that “Wild Bill” was not entirely unlike Billy Lane- Bill had Harleys before it was cool to be a riding Gov, water-skiied at 60 mph, and was a big influence in making Sturgis what it is;

    But it’s also true that Janklow has had a dark and corrupt past, and only because of the perceived good he did for South Dakota thru the years, was he able to get off with a slap on the wrist…. No “luck” about that one.

    On the surface, it doesn’t appear that justice was served in Janklow’s case. We taxpayers flipped the bill for the civil damages, as Bill was allegedly on “state” business when he ran over the biker- whatever.

    The bottom line, tho, is that Janklow is now a leper in the political and legal communities- which DOES matter, because the ONLY thing Janklow ever really cared about was power and influence;

    The fact that Janklow is now a walking poster child for disgraced politicians must weigh upon him 24/7- you just have to know how MASSIVE this man’s ego is, to realize that for him, this is the cruelest punishment of all- public scorn.

    Seriously, Bill- eat a bullet- put yourself out of our pain.

    I suspect the same thing will happen to Billy Lane- he’ll do token time in prison, lose everything in civil judgements… Losing his toys will hurt this man, yes;

    But the biggest thing Billy ultimately loses will take place five years from now, when all the hugs from peers have stopped, all the attention goes away, and that freedom to do exactly what he wants, when he wants, has all dried up……. “LANE!!! FRIES!!!!” hehehehh……

    I must say, it’s a tribute to Mr Huze’s value as a good friend that he perpetuates this blog unedited, and is even big enough to contribute to it- he’s been very objective about Billy, which is all you can really expect from a good friend;

    All these other “friends” who choose the “no commment” route on Billy have already wished him Bon Voyage in his life- Billy should be grateful to have as good of a friend as Mr Huze.

    Justice may not seem fair at times, but it has a way of working out in the end…..

  114. 114 Bob Mar 8th, 2007 at 7:46 pm

    I agree justice does not always seem fair and I guess things do work out in the end. Yes, I’s agree Cyril is a good friend. You are right as well about being in the right circles, no more Biker Build Off Reruns with Billy Lane! Now if they just do something about OCC, that show is as bad as The Osbournes. I was a Black Sabbath fan, back in the olden days. The toys must not be much fun now….can’t drive.

  115. 115 T Dogg Mar 8th, 2007 at 11:55 pm

    I have spent the better of an hour and a half reading postings about Mr.Lane, in the beginning there were two sides: pro Billy and against Billy. I will admit I was as big of a fan as anyone till I had heard about the accident late last year. I am in a profession that unfortunately I respond to the aftermath of vehicle crashes and such. With that I will say that what most people post here is a lot of crap, unless you see it, you can have disconnect from it, I can’t.
    What Mr. Lane did is inexcusable to say the least, but like it or not, every American citizen is allowed their day in court. I do, in my opinion, think that Mr. Lane should spend time in prison and be fined along with community service if he is ever on the street again.
    All of the people who have written on this blog are entitled to their opinions, but it is not a place to have a pissing contest about who they believe is a role model or things of this sort.
    With this I thank you Mr. Huze for the opportunity to speak in your forum about this tragedy.

  116. 116 Robert Mar 9th, 2007 at 11:04 pm

    T Dogg: Sounds like you are a paramedic or in law enforcement. Yes, I am sure none of us have any idea about the aftermath of a event like this accident. I agree. Lane’s behavior is inexcusable to say the least, especially since Lane knew he should not be driving with his license suspended. Prison time is deserving, a fine and community service. I do not think he should ever have drivers license again. Thank-you Mr. Huze for the opportunity to speak in your forum. A word on something good. You builders did a heck of a job at the fund raising breakfast for Bogey Creek. Each of you should be commended.

  117. 117 sandie Mar 12th, 2007 at 8:30 pm

    I commend every builder, Billy Lane included with his new haircut and dreadlocks gone as well. Guess the lawyers have advised him short hair, tattos covered and designer suit will be a better way to appear in front of a Judge and Jury. Guess the lawyer is earning his pay. I think Bruce Rossemeyer is a special guy for donating dollar for dollar. Hopefully, this idea will carry on with or without Billy Lane in the future. You can never take away the fact that Billy Lane is a well educated man with a lot of great visions for choppers and charitable for children. Shame he made a terrible mistake and drove.

  118. 118 L Mar 14th, 2007 at 4:56 pm

    To Sandie:
    I can’t help to wonder if it were your nephew or a loved one, if you would want them to spend 15 yrs in prison,if the situation had changed their life? I also wonder if things were different and Mr. Morelock had killed someone that night, if the Morelock family would want a loved one behind bars for 15 years, if they knew it had made a difference in their life and changed them? I know that this is not the way it happened, but it very well could have been turned around with his Blood Alcohol Level. I haven’t heard not one thing about BL partying and drinking that way you say he has been carrying on, in your past posts. Just because he is out working doesn’t mean he isn’t having a hard time looking at himself in the mirror or changed his ways. Unless you have some sort of power to be inside his head, you don’t know what he is feeling. I do feel like the Morelock family is due money for funeral costs, pain and suffering etc. Not 20 million dollars. Was he supporting his mother, wife and children, but I don’t think he had a wife or children (not sure about that)
    I think a college fund for his nephew would be a wonderful thing and for Mr. Morelocks parents to be taken care of. Sandie, I have read your posts on all the different websites and it bothers me how you change from one minute to the next. You sound like a very bitter and unhappy person. There are alot of victims in this situation and I am not going to pretend to have an answer, like you do. My prayers go out to all involved with this, including you, you seem to be so bitter. I can’t even imagine what the Morelock family is going thru right now, it has to be horrible, but I wonder what Gerald would want them to do right now if he could talk to them.

  119. 119 sandie Mar 15th, 2007 at 3:15 pm

    True their bitter people. I say let the Judge and jury in the criminal case decide what BL’s fate as far as punishment for driving without license and killing somebody drunk. I say let the lawyers and Judge in the civil suit decide what is fair to the Morelock family. I feel badly for BL, he should have learned his lesson in North Carolina and been glad that all he got was his drivers license suspended for a year. I would have learned my lesson from that and from the time I left that North Carolina courtroom, I would have took in a deep breathe and had a burden lifted and been thankful. I did not make the laws. Some laws are unfair. When you, me, Cyril, DJCHOPPER GOD, Chopperchick, Bob, John, Iowalowrider, and Chevysmallblock, BL, or our loved ones break the law and drive on suspended license we all have to face the Judge and possibly a jury if we choose to have a jury. Maybe, just maybe, BL has learned his lesson. BL learned it after killing somebody. We would all be in the same boat BL is in if it were us…..except we probably could not afford BL’s lawyers. I wish BL the best of luck. BL is represented well. I feel that the Morelock family has the best lawyer in Brevard County. Melbourne, Florida. So they are represented as well as BL. Really al we can do is wait or the trial. The evidence will speak and tell us what happened that Labor Day night. I am sure BL has been advised by his lawyers to cut his hair, cover tatoos and do charity work for the trial. Seem like BL is following his lawyer’s advise and that is what he pays the lawyers to do. If BL had not been driving when he had no license……………we would not have this blog discussion. It started because of BL’s poor decision.

  120. 120 ChopperChick Mar 15th, 2007 at 4:34 pm

    Billy was doing charitable works long before he was “advised” to do so by his lawyer.

  121. 121 bob Mar 15th, 2007 at 8:38 pm

    I agree with both Chopperchick & Sandy

  122. 122 tracey frank Mar 17th, 2007 at 12:06 pm

    I am reading postings from time to time on here and it looks like some people are missing the point. Mr. Lane broke the law, plain and simple, you or I could not do the same and be on the streets before the ink dried on his booking file.
    And to answer Robert on a previous post, I am not law enforcement but a FF Engineer for 8 years so I’ve seen a little in my days on the road.
    No one but the good Lord and his dad can tell what is in Mr. Lanes’ heart, I could say he probably has a great deal of remorse and will live with this for his natural life. But no amount of charity work or otherwise can reverse what happened that day when their worlds met on that road, forever linking the two families together.
    Mr. Lane should’ve thought before he got behind the wheel and like someone said before, maybe thought about N.Carolina.
    I hope this will not be another case of deep pockets buying their way out of trouble, many celebrities do that and skate all too often, much too many peoples chagrine. Cleaning up to make face with the court and the public is another way to divert attention.
    And the other thing that bothers me is that some are making a point of Mr. Morelocks’ being intoxicated also, while that is illegal, it does not make a difference in the fact that Mr. Lane crossed the line on the road and struck the deceased. I hope that everyone remembers that when they are thinking about that and their own skins and drawing breath.
    All in all I take a saying from my dad “Take coulda,woulda,and shoulda in one hand and ten cents in the other, you could buy yourself a donut.

  123. 123 DJ Chopper God Mar 17th, 2007 at 12:17 pm

    He could have also crossed a double yellow line sober with the same outcome. Bad situation. Nothing any of us say will change it.

  126. 126 BM Apr 6th, 2007 at 12:55 pm

    Dear Folks,

    Thank you for your thoughts and prayers,
    No one on this Earth knew Gerry better than I…..
    next my boy & Mom & sister.
    Never knew Billy.
    prabably never will.
    I never have said a disrepectful thing about him publically.
    As for his irrespondsible decisions and actions…….
    “Family Devastation”
    prabably on both sides………
    We are trying to have faith in our country’s justice system.
    Although it seems that some of the people( wealthy, famous, huge
    Corporations) are MORE equal than others….
    My bro always huged me like a big Viking and said: “i’m so proud of you for keeping up a positive attitude with life’s ups & downs !”………..Here i am Gerry….still trying.

    if all of you really knew all the facts and of the “intensional sweeping this under the carpet” tactics and charactor assasinasions being employed towards my family…….
    i truly believe that justice would be served with true pubic opinion.
    Not a day goes by that i do not get mail and calls from hundreds of sweet, caring souls offering moral support to my family.
    There are so many other families out there that have been hurt
    with similar tradjedies.
    Let’s all try and learn from this crap, try and turn something positive out of this.
    That’s what Gerry would have wanted.
    RIP Bro

    bikers are beautiful people

  127. 127 Bart Steel Apr 7th, 2007 at 8:58 pm

    I knew Billy. I personally knew only one person who, in my opinion, Billy might have really listened to regarding his personal behavior. But that person died in 2004. Many times I had the chance to say something to Billy but didn’t because I believe that I can’t badger a person into taking personal responsibility for their own actions. A person must ultimately decide that for themselves. The guy Billy killed was my cousin, and Byron, as your cousin, I’d do anything I can but it’s in the hands of the judicial system now. Thanks for the good words above there. Bart

  128. 128 sandie Apr 10th, 2007 at 12:33 am

    BYRON & BART: I wish you the best. With a Father that retired from the Kentucky State Police and at one time was during his tenure a traffic accident investigator upon all fatal accidents and I have a brother practicing personal injury law, I can take a pretty good guess what the other side on the civil case is doing to your brother Gerry and your family. I wish you and yours the best. Be strong. I predict that the criminal case is in the can, the evidence and on scene witnesses will prevail with the very good job done by the FHP. Since this is what court TV would consider “high profile”, you can rest assured that every base is covered. No better lawyer could you have hired in the Space Coast area for the civil case. No matter what, you will never get Gerry back and no amount of money can fill the empty place in your heart.

  129. 129 bob Apr 10th, 2007 at 8:31 am

    everyone does make mistakes. and when a mistake is made you have to step up and deal with the mistake and sometimes take the punishment for the mistake you made.

    this time billy made the mistake and he will have to deal with the punishment.

    accidents happen. that can’t be changed.

    this was an unfortunate accident in that a life was lost.

    what ever happens to billy lane, a man is no longer living.

    there are no winners in this…only losers….

  130. 130 goldiron Apr 10th, 2007 at 8:36 am

    crashes are not accidents

  131. 131 morgan Apr 10th, 2007 at 12:15 pm

    Crashes are not accidents? Are you saying car wrecks are intentional? If that is true why are the people that have intentionally pulled out in front of me or backed into me in jail? Someone pulled out of a parking spot recently and hit me as I was driving through a parking lot. Did about $3000.00 damage to my mustang. The cop that showed up said "That’s why they call them accidents" after I told the woman I knew she didn’t mean to hit me.
    As far as character assassinations, if you have lived a good life, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. I feel bad for everyone involved.

  132. 132 BM Apr 11th, 2007 at 1:11 pm

    Hey Bart,
    Tell your Mom & Dad i said Hello.
    i was talking with Mom last night and she asked about Yall.
    We love you all !
    And thanks to all you posters with kind words and support.

    You gus really need to take a look in the mirror.None of you have ever done anything wrong? or anything you really regret? yes he was drinking & driving but you guys act like he killed this man on purpose. I dont know billy like Cyril does but i dont see him doing that! I do feel very sorry for the family of that man that died. Why dont all of you critics do something productive & do some charity events for the family. Im sure they would appriciate that more than your negitivity on this subject.

    Please help each other!

  137. 137 huero Nov 7th, 2007 at 7:03 pm

    Here is what Billy should have done to get our respect back.
    1. Compensate the victims family and
    2. Plead guilty to manslaughter and driving drunk.
    Easy as that!

  138. 138 Tools Jul 9th, 2008 at 5:32 pm

    I personally think that everyone makes mistakes. As Cyril said “Billy made some bad decisions, none of which he can take back. Billy, his friends, family & Gerald Morelock’s friends & family will all have to live with this tragedy for the rest of their lives.”

    I know that in my life I’ve made lots of seriously bad decisions, and I’m still paying for them today. However, I have been able to take the tragedies in my life and turn them into some of the greatest assets I have. Billy given the right guidance will be able to do this too.

    Our role is not to condemn the man, that is why we have courts. Our role is to be there for our fellow man when he needs help.

  139. 139 LA Rider Apr 14th, 2009 at 10:29 am

    So what’s happening with this turd?

  140. 140 h2oholt May 15th, 2009 at 1:27 am


    Let the bashing begin. I haven’t been keeping up but I have a small shop here in austin tx where we work on vintage jap british and american stuff more maintenance lately. I got back into it to pay the bills so I could play guitar all the time and not work for someone else. Back in the nineties I built a lot of bobbers and chops, mainly brits and sportsters. I remember billy’s first bikes in the Iron Horse magazine. I have some of those issues and the first issue with jesse’s panhead also. And this guy Indian Larry who built panheads and rode em. Took a bit of reading to figure that one out. No one out of reading that mag or new york city really knew who he was. I was reading one of billys books that was bought for me sittin on the shop couch and remembered hearing about all this and thought I would go online and check it out. Yes if mr. morelock hadn’t of been drinking he might be alive, and if billy hadn’r been still he might be alive. Something horrible happened. It was innevitable in these situations if you look at the big picture. Consequences are good, bad, and indifferent. Sometimes it doesn’t matter. Your actions kill someone it matters. You ride the lightning long enough and somethings gettin scorched I gaurantee. Will billy say something in public when it’s all over? Sure he will. Maybe he has said all there is for the other family. Is he aware of how fucked up this situation is? I hope he can recognize the common denominator for all the fucked up shit that happened to him the last five or ten years. HIM. he’s the common denominator. He will have to change. Grow up in a sense. It happens to us all eventually. May do something like get sober and help others to get sober. He will defenitely have to live with it. Day in and Day out. If he has any feelings inside at all that should be a tough row to hoe

  142. 142 LvD Oct 4th, 2009 at 10:12 am

    When it comes down to it ,It is as simple as this:
    1)DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE because accidents caused by wrong decisions happen much often under influence and by doing so you may hurt somebody or kill somebody destroy lives of his family members his friends your own and your friends as well as lives of your own family members.
    BILLY, there is a lot of destroyed lives of innocent people .Non of these idiots criticizing you is saint – nor me who party hard and rides for over 30 years and just because we was lucky not to kill ourselves or somebody else we do not know how it feels to be in your skin.You was not so lucky that night and unfortunately the fact that lot of people around do the same can not be used as a excuse.It is just the price which sometimes one of us who knows how to enjoy the life to the full got to pay.The real punishment is inside your brain and will stay there for rest of your life.6 years is too much – no time at all would be too little.
    2)DON’T DRINK AND RIDE because accidents even caused by others could be much less likely avoidable if you are under influence and your death will destroy lives of your family members,your friends but will also destroy life of the person who killed you lives of his family and friends.
    Mr .Morlock ( unfortunately he can not read this comment, but but people like him can ) there is a lot of destroyed lives of innocent people OUT OF THEM JUST ONE WHO DESERVES IT – YOU COULD POSSIBLY AVOID IT if you would not be drinking and riding.There is lot of us who drink and rides, but we was so far lucky enough not to get in the situations where the slight difference between being sober and have slow reactions and ability to make the right decisions fast influenced by alcohol make the difference between death and staying alive,You was not so lucky that night and that’s the price which sometimes one of us who do not play by rules pays.
    Just because you are in the shadow of somebody who cares much bigger chunk of the guilt for what happened does not mean you are in all people’s eyes INNOCENT VICTIM.RIP
