Breaking News. Billy Lane In Work Release In New Motorcycle Shop In Orlando.

Cyrilhuze-billylaneBilly Lane being eligible for work release, is now allowed to work at paid employment in the community during the last months of his 6-year confinement.

So, since a couple of days, Billy is back at working on motorcycles at a newly opened shop in Orlando called Global Motor Werks. Billy Lane must return to the Department’s custody at the end of each workday.

The program is conceived to help inmates for a gradual reintegration back into the community, gain full employment, accumulate savings, preserve family and community ties.

Global Motor Werks had a grand opening on July 27th, offer service on all motorcycle makes and models at $68/h labor rate.

Billy Lane is still serving a 6 years sentence, plus 3 years of probation. He is benefiting of 2 days of credit per month of  good behavior while doing time. Whatever Billy decides to do after confinement and wherever he wants to work, he will be obliged to keep a presence in Florida during the time of his probation.

    Awesome! Good for him. Billy is a good person and deserves his second chance. Glad he is back to working on motorcycles.

    Sorry you got screwed? How about the kid he killed?

  13. 13 takehikes Aug 8th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    Don’t know Billy but know he will have to live with all that has gone on for rest of his life.
    I hope he is able to come back and be beneficial to society. Wasn’t a big fan of much of his work but he’s got talent for sure.

  14. 14 Slag Aug 8th, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    This just made my day. Hang in the Billy.

  15. 15 Slag Aug 8th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    Hang in there Billy…..Got so excited that I mispelled “there” in the original comment.

  16. 16 Brett Aug 8th, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    Joe it wasn’t a kid he killed, not that t matters, but no he didn’t get screwed…just for some reason lots of others don’t get what they deserve especially if they are a pro athlete or an actor.

    I’m glad this part is almost over for Billy. He has to live with what happened the rest of his life…but time for him to get on with his life.

    Still a fan of Billy. Met him in 2007 at Sturgis & he’s a great guy.

  17. 17 Smitty Aug 8th, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    I’m sure the guy Billy hit would like to get along with his life but he can’t, He’s dead!

  18. 18 Septic the Sceptic Aug 8th, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    Well done Billy. He faced up to his responsibilities. He’s done his time.

  19. 19 Bygtime Aug 8th, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    Wishing Billy the best, doing his time and a better man for it. Hoping he comes back to Melbourne, sure could use more business in this town!

    Kevin Bean’re… if you make it to O-town…sure would like to do some riding with my Marine Brother!

  20. 20 Bigalyts Aug 8th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Billy welcome from 24/7 Supervision to 24/7 Supervision the only difference is you can finally take a Crap by yourself. three more ugly years of being in the System. Remember Billy a Day at a Time. See you at a Friend of Bill W. get together..

  21. 21 baggerdude Aug 8th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Who owns the newly opened motorcycle shop? Sounds like a sweet deal for Billy!

  22. 22 goovy Aug 8th, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    So happy for Billy! I look forward to watching the next genius creation that comes from his brilliant mind.

    Work release is much better than just coming out cold… Good luck Billy…

    I hope to see you soon

  28. 28 Terence Tory Aug 9th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    Dumb drunks deserve zero pity.but they do deserve a second chance and true respect for their real efforts to live a good life.Good behaviour in the slot is not to be scoffed at either.All flesh is grass and ends up as dust,and the lost guy is resting in peace.When I think of all the insanely fast and risky thinks I have done on bikes over the years,straight or addled,that could have killed a handful of friends or passerbys over the years I may well have ended up in exactly the same position.It’s all great sport and fun before some medic is walking around in the trees looking for some guys head.Go-Go Billy,good luck.

  29. 29 Glenn Priddle Aug 9th, 2013 at 7:08 am

    Great news!!!! all the best Billy.

  30. 30 Mike Infanzon Aug 9th, 2013 at 7:09 am

    Thanks Cyril for the update. Glad he’s close to getting out. I can’t imagine the designs and engineering ideas he’s put on paper the past years.

  31. 31 Kroeter Aug 9th, 2013 at 8:19 am

    I don’t know him, never met him. Looks like he’s grateful to be wrenching again. Hope he can pass along the lessons he’s learned while he gets his “brand” up and running again.

  32. 32 HockeyPucker Aug 9th, 2013 at 9:15 am
    Would you still think Billy Lane was “Cool” if it was you or your Loved one he Killed – Murdered?

    One look at Billy’s record proves he was on a path to Kill Gerry Morelock a long time before Sept 4, 2006. This time His Blood Alcohol was .192 by the time he was tested.

    I can’t look at Billy and not see the Death and Destruction he is “solely” responsible for. Billy you have yet another chance, you must change your ways. Before you kill another one of us.

  33. 33 JohnJ Aug 9th, 2013 at 9:20 am

    I’m a Billy fan… hey Billy do you remember the motorcycle stamps??? Stay Strong…

  34. 34 morpion Aug 9th, 2013 at 10:40 am

  35. 35 rebel Aug 9th, 2013 at 10:52 am

    give the guy some space and don’t run to the dealership like a 13 year old girl with your iphone for a picture, please.

  36. 36 Smitty Aug 9th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    “He deserves a second chance”. That’s what everyone seems to be saying. It needs to be known that he had already had a second chance and blew it! He had been arrested for DWI in North Carolina and his drivers license had been suspended before the wreck that took a fellow motorcyclist.
    At the time of the wreck, Lane was passing illegally, driving without a valid drivers license and had a blood alcohol content over twice the legal limit.
    How many chances does one person need?

    Celebrity worship is a sad thing!

    The dead motorcyclist was Gerald Morelock.

    Without stirring this pot too much Smitty, some of your”facts” are just wrong. I trust Billy will do well. peace

  38. 38 Boss Hawg Aug 9th, 2013 at 11:53 am

    The naysayers are digging up bones as usual….Git a life….The man committed the crime and did the time….

    Welcome Back with open arms Billy Lane! Keep it real…we all are looking for some nice bikes for you to come out with.

  39. 39 parts359 Aug 9th, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    I hope he gets his life together but after what he did no longer a fan

  40. 40 Boots Aug 9th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Burnout, what facts are wrong?

  41. 41 Debbi Davids Aug 9th, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I don’t know any perfect people. I wouldn’t want to. Some mistakes are more costly than others and unfortunately “can” result in precious human life.

    He obviously did not do it on purpose and I wish him the best on his journey back into society.

  42. 42 Pat Simmons Aug 9th, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    Welcome back Billy. Good luck to you, and may your life be an example for us all, as you return to those you love, and who love you.

  43. 43 Socko Aug 9th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Great to see ya back on the wrenches. Can’t wait till you blow the WORLD away with your next bike. Being packed away for 6 years and looking at the crap others have sorta built, I’m sure have you set on fire. We have meet before and I enjoyed the time we did spend together. It was long before TV ruined the chopper scene and most of the ones involved with it . Now if ya remember I did ask you one thing. I said dont sell out like all the others did, and you said you wouldn’t. Now get back to work and do what you do. Hope our paths cross again soon

  44. 44 Jusmecuz Aug 10th, 2013 at 9:13 am

    People aren’t perfect. Mistakes are made by many. Shit happens for a reason.

    Ignorant, self-righteous people will always judge.

    I wish only the best for him.

  45. 45 RUB Aug 10th, 2013 at 10:42 am

    Was not a Billy Lane fan . But he did stand up and do his time for his crime . Lots of respect for him now . He’ll do fine .

  46. 46 James just another crazy Kiwi Aug 10th, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Let he who is without sin caste the first stone.
    Or something like that,I dont do bible but that’s a good one.

    He has done his time, he will carry with him the guilt of the act,of a moments stupidity.

    I was out on the Fat Bob last night with a number of Merlots tucked inside.
    It’s winter here,it was cold and dark and stupid.I was the one at risk.
    No excuse,just stupidiy

    I wish him well,hope we get to see that Flat head of his again soon

    Take care everyone, this life of motorcycling is fraut with risk.A is life itself

    if he was in the NFL, he wouldn’t have got any time, and still be playing the whole time!!

  48. 48 moefaux Aug 10th, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    people die all the time…if it wasnt billy it would have been some other drunk hitting some other guy. why is everyone so hellbent on revenge?

  49. 49 moefaux Aug 10th, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    how does someone stand up and do their time? he didnt hire a lawyer? i think he didnt have a choice.

  50. 50 Brad Aug 10th, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Glad to know things are looking up.always kept up on you because you’re a hell of a guy!!

  51. 51 Dave Aug 10th, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    Working in the custom motorcycle industry I could not think of anything worse than being responsible for the death of a fellow motorcycle rider. For me it is not about what Billy has done in the past but more about what he does in the future to honour the life of the Gerald Morelock and his family. Go and talk at schools, volunteer your time with crash victims, fundraise for the family, just do something to ensure his death was not meaningless.

  52. 52 jason Aug 11th, 2013 at 1:02 am

    I have to agree with you Dave. he should tell his lesson to others. he probably would want to.

  53. 53 RUB Aug 11th, 2013 at 4:58 am

    @ moefaux , do a little research on the case and you’ll see how it went down . The internet is your friend .

  54. 54 Terence Tory Aug 11th, 2013 at 8:56 am

    I did a bit of dumpster diving in Cyril’s old cache from 09′ :”Breaking News. Billy Lane Sentenced To 6 Years In Prison.” I found these and other old gems:

    A short excerpt: Rogue: “But It Was Morelock who killed himself”.

    And then this guy pipes in agreement on that statement,and Rogues long piece:

    Doc Robinson,Aug 16th, 2009.:”Thank you Rogue for presenting such a reasoned and accurate clarification statement.”

    Then this “Rorschach inkblot” of “advanced envy theory 101″ in action crops up:

    Phil:”The only reason that most of you guys are deriving your perverted pleasure from Billy being in jail is because you’re envious of him. –

    He optimized Cool and told the man to fuck off.

    Bottom line Billy’s in jail and you are still invisible!”

    People don’t like reality of death by drunk very much,and all sorts of wacky theories,tepid excuses and thought patterns seem to crawl out of a corner of the human brain like cockroaches from a dusty corner in a pharaoh’s musty tomb.It is irrelevant whether a crash death was caused by a sad drunk in a “borrowed pickup” or little baby Jesus riding a golden chariot of fire with Arlen Ness’s blessing of sacramental wine.It did not matter in law,in the least,if the crime was done by a nobody or a “celebrity”.Don’t make any effort concocting excuses for “fallen heroes”,it is just a truly bad example for young guys that follow them with glee.Being a fervent fan-boy does not excuse or change the sad reality of death by dumb.I wish Billy a good future,and his fans time to ponder how this has all ended up:a lesson.

  55. 55 Mike Greenwald Aug 11th, 2013 at 9:23 am

    Terence Tory,

    If you read that Morelock was also under the influence and read that Morelock did not stop before entering the roadway, you may have credibility to your statement.


  56. 56 ROGUE Aug 11th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    I am pleased that Billy has done and is doing what is part of what he was sentenced to and has now reached the work release part of his sentence,
    Please remember he is still in custody and there are rules about his work.
    Since he is at a shop to do that all should respect that and the man who employed him.
    I do believe the Florida penal system does have rules about his work situation and hopefully people will respect that.
    Let him finish and continue to make his way back into society.


  57. 57 Mack Aug 11th, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Good luck Billy !!!
    We’re all still behind …don’t let the “better than yous” get u down …
    Funny how those who Judge you on the keyboard see it different when their troubles show up

  58. 58 Mack Aug 11th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Supposed to say ” we’re all still behind u”
    Keep on keeping on

  59. 59 Tom C Aug 12th, 2013 at 6:57 am

    Its been a long road and you are getting to the end or beginning on however you choose to look at this & conduct yourself.
    I hope you find the good sense to re-establish yourself in the outside world. You are talented and have hopefully learned a great life lesson.
    Keep your mind strong & dont forget you personal history lesson as it will always keep you on the right track.

    God Bless

    @ Mike Greenwald , Billy had crossed the double yellow line to pass a group of cars on A1A , Gerold pulled out of the park on the proper lane , Billy was in Gerolds lane , on the wrong side of the road ( passing cars ) . Billy was speeding ( 50 to 90 MPH only Billy knows for sure ) and ran over Gerold Morlock ( who was in his proper lane ) with his lifted Dodge pick up , killing him instantly . Saying that Mr Morlock was responsible or contributed in any way to his own death is just not a true statement . When the truth doesn’t fit ones adgenda , they spin the story till the uninformed masses eat up the BS version of the “truth” . Wasn’t the word you used above ” credibility ” ? huh …………….

  61. 61 person against drunk drivers Aug 12th, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    The man tjat he murdered will never go home at the enf of his work day again. Damn shame.

  62. 62 Terence Tory Aug 12th, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    RUB,I didn’t reply to that complete nonsense that you responded to.Thanks very much for saving me the trouble.Justice is a balance,not a small town booster session,cheering on the good ole boy.

  63. 63 Mike Greenwald Aug 12th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Rub, tell the whole story. In Florida, if you start your pass before the double yellow begins, you may complete the pass even though there is a double yellow line there. Also, in Florida, you are required to stop your vehicle before entering the roadway. Tory, maybe nonsense, but, also the the truth. The blackmail of stacked charges was also pushed into the fray.

  64. 64 Mack Aug 12th, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    Mike is right ….in no way is it an excuse but the fact is not everyone knows the whole story
    How many people know that “, autopsy reports showed that Gerald Morelock had a blood alcohol level of .133. Billy Lane had caused the wreck on September 4th by crossing the double yellow lines on Highway A1A while passing 3 vehicles. Lane was later found to have had a blood alcohol level content of 0.192 and was charged with DUI Manslaughter for the death of Morelock. – See more at:
    A terrible tragedy anyway you look at it …. One man lost his life , another has paid (still paying ) years of pain and mental anguish and will the rest of his life……Lets get real Billy didnt set out to hurt anyone, how many have a left a bar and driven ? …I’m guessing the vast majority on here ….I see an awful lot of cars at bar parking lots…… It’s a difficult crime to judge cuz millions do it everyday …morelock at .133
    Shouldn’t have probably gotten on his scooter ….billy shouldn’t have driven period…..but I. Get so dam tired of reading the hypocrites judge Billy …..point 192 ain’t as many beers as you think so before you go flaming someone look in the mirror …..dwi is bad no doubt but using the word “murder “pissies me off …look up the definition before u go throwing a word around…..Billy is paying and will the rest of his life GET OFF HIS BACK. And let him be
    Peace Out

    Welcome back, Billy. Your a talented guy and have paid your debt to society. And to all those perfect people out there… The only perfect person I can think of was nailed to a cross by the Romans.

  67. 67 RUB Aug 13th, 2013 at 8:56 am

    @ Mike Greenwald , spin it any way you want , it still doesn’t change what happened . You worship poor Billy , and blame the victim . This is whats wrong with the world today .

  68. 68 Mike Greenwald Aug 13th, 2013 at 9:20 am


    The truth is not the spin. No worship here. Two drunks crash. One dies. One has media celebrity hoisted upon him, one does not. Prosecutor’s office needs a high profile win for career stats and election votes. Plain and simple. What’s wrong with the world is that you only believe partial truths to your end of the discussion.You sound like a politician, what’s your point?

  69. 69 Terence Tory Aug 13th, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Mack:”how many have a left a bar and driven ? …I’m guessing the vast majority on here”. You guessed wrong I say.There are plenty of people with enough brains and self control,and respect for other road users mortality to only drive with absolutely minimal alcohol in their system.A level of 0.192 is plenty of beers for an average size guys driving to turn bad.

    Forget the “Billy’s good” and the “Billy’s bad” to and fro.He’s done his time and I wish him all the best.

    I’m disgusted with some guys statements and attitudes here to drunk driving in this day and age.You can fool yourself,but not your addled reaction time when you need to brake or evade.

    The only people I have known personally to die in car or bike crashes have had drunk operators.Five guys dead in one car,and a guy falling off the back of a bike and stuck up a tree,dead.

  70. 70 Mack Aug 13th, 2013 at 11:52 am

    @terence….I think u mis understand no way am I condoning drinking and driving ….I’m just trying to “get real” and I ain’t saying “oh everybody drinks and drives ” …what I am saying is OPEN YOUR EYES
    most rallies are drink fests and people ain’t walkin…now alot of guys i know on here have quit drinking but they were out there at one time , they got smart
    And alot are very responible but the fact is it does not take very many drinks to be “legally drunk”
    And there are millions everyday out there stopping at the bar and then driving or riding home everyday, only difference in them and billy is by the grace of god they made it home….if you don’t see this then u r in denial of reality ….doesn’t make it right or ok but the fact is it happens all the time I just wish alot of the ” I can handle my drinking guys “would quit treating him like a serial killer …he was wrong he knows it and he’s suffering more than you will ever know. Believe me…
    Let him be
    I’m done
    Peace out

  71. 71 Terence Tory Aug 13th, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Mack.I can go along with the general tone and tenor and your attitude to this stuff.Peace,Love,Dove.Have a spicy carrot concoction on me.

  72. 72 RUB Aug 14th, 2013 at 8:23 am

    @ Mike Greenwald , OK mike , answer me this . Would you say the 2 involved were 50% at fault each ? Or who was more at fault in your theory ? I’m wondering how you divide it up . Thanks in advance .

  73. 73 Mike Greenwald Aug 14th, 2013 at 11:35 am


    Sounds like a trick question.
    Both are 100% guilty of drinking and driving.
    Both broke rules of the road.
    It seems that you want me to weight the decision in favor of one vehicle operator over the other. I see it as a very simple equation, “Two wrongs do not make a right.”
    Others have decided to play favorites for one side or the other. I do not see it that way. The plus side to this incident was for the media. The media got to stir everyone into a frenzy. The consumers of the media were the collateral damage. Incidents, such as this one, can bring out the most vile and despicable commentary about our society. We are all vulnerable to forming opinions without having all the facts. Many of us form opinions extrapolated from other opinions. A form of gossip, I surmise. It was a damned shame that it happened. Worse yet were all the keyboard cowboys that jumped in with prejudice, notion and a billion two cent contributions, proving that they were “all hat and no cowboy”. At this point in time, we all have a choice to make. Either we can support the victims of both sides of this tragedy or, we can damn them to our indifference. That is how I divide it up.
    You’re welcome.


  74. 74 RUB Aug 15th, 2013 at 6:04 am

    Mike , all I’m asking for is your opinion . Not that both were wrong , both were victims , thats to politically correct for me . I would give Bill 85% @ fault with Gerold getting 15% . See that wasn’t hard at all . Come on , whats your “opinion” on this matter ?

  75. 75 Mike Greenwald Aug 15th, 2013 at 6:42 am


    I have traveled the road where it happened. I know where both vehicles were and where they collided. You are entitled to your opinion. I gave you my opinion in a previous answer. Based upon the facts of this case, your opinion appears to be a greater percentage of boneheaded. You are right, not hard at all.


  76. 76 RUB Aug 15th, 2013 at 9:36 am

    Mike , So you argee with my findings ? Billy was 85% @ fault ? You write a whole paragraph but don’t say anything . Billy @ 85% higher or lower ? 50 / 50 ?

  77. 77 Mike Greenwald Aug 15th, 2013 at 11:24 am

    RUB, they are both at fault. It is black and white, no grey area.You really need to ask an insurance actuary provided that you can give the facts and not the opinion.

  78. 78 RUB Aug 15th, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    come on Mike , if its black and white , tell me who is more at fault in your mind ? After all , there is no grey area , right ? Billy 85% ?????? Do you think that accurate ? Maybe too high ? This isn’t a trick question , but I keep getting trick answers ………………………………. That reminds me , maybe I’ll have waffles for breakfast tomorrow . 😉

    So glad to see you are back doing what you enjoy.

  84. 84 Taylor Aug 18th, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    What I have yet to read in the comments is that Billy and the surviving kids of tge man he killed actually came yo peace and they fought not to have him put in jail feeling he could do more using his celebrity status to combat drinking and driving. The judge still threw the book at him. If the mams kids can gorgive then we should too. Glad to see he is close to release. If you watch the video of the judge telling his sentence after the man he killed you can hear them saying we love you Billy. That is forgiveness I have to respect. Simply because I doubt I could do it if tables were turned.

    I am extremely happy for Billy! He is indeed a credit to the motorcycle/chopper community.

  88. 88 Igor Aug 18th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    Happy for Billy, was inspired by him around 2005. Keep at designing and building man!

  89. 89 BritSmith Aug 19th, 2013 at 4:07 am

    He made a mistake. He has paid for it. He will live with the guilt the rest of his life. But you cant get away from the fact that the guy has talent. In the time he has been in jail the chopper seen has become boring we need Billy back for some true inspiration. The world has changed financially and we need people who can brighten your day to change our attitude back to positivity. Billy Lane is one of those. I wish him well and hope that his time in Orlando will get his head back into society and the motorcycle scene. Hope to see you soon. GOOD LUCK!

  90. 90 Robert Aug 19th, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Welcome back Billy, we have all made mistakes in life man but its how you rise above it all and come out with a new outlook on life and a greater appreciation for what we have. I’m probably one of your biggest fans. I know what happened that dreadful night and I send up prayers to the victim and his family. My God always bless them. Billy, I know you are a better man and will learn from all of this so just keep your head and stay focused on your future and the fans you still have. Best of luck to you and your future. I can not wait til you are back in the shop and putting your imagination back on steel. Stay up buddy.

    Just in time to build my ride to BF6!

  102. 102 Redrider24 Oct 7th, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    It will be an adjustment. It was an unfortunate accident. Alcohol seemed to play the biggest role. At this point what’s important is from ‘This’ moment forward. That’s what matters. It’s what ‘Billy’ does with this experience that will show his character. He may be even better than before……. I hope he doesn’t get caught up in the ‘Fat and Sassy’ part of the show business end. And remains humble. Time will tell……… Peace!
    Billy Lane.

  103. 103 IAN MACDONALD Oct 7th, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    Hey Billy. Glad to hear you are back doing what you do best!!! Wishing you the best and hope you get releaased soon!!!!!!!

  104. 104 tom Oct 15th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    The kid he killed? Do you men the 50 something year old DRUNK MAN riding an illegal scooter on a highway where small scooters are not allowed?? THAT kid?

  105. 105 Raven Oct 17th, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    I am happy Billy is now able to slowly go back to what he loves doing. Regardless of what happened , it was a terrible thing for all parties involved. Billy will have to live with what happened all of his life and that can be hard. Everything happens for a reason, nothing is by chance. Love the short hair on you Billy!!! Wishing you (Billy) much love and light in you life in geting back on track and staying there. One day at a time. Big hugs.

  106. 106 Two-Wheeled Tim Oct 24th, 2013 at 2:04 am

    I can only hope that as the process of Billy’s release begins, he will emerge from this chapter of his life a changed man. In my line of work you meet a lot of self-important drunks and drug addicts. It’s tiring at times and I can see where Billy may have fit that archetype. People who live fast and engage in self-destructive behavior almost always implode upon themselves. Billy certainly did, but — more importantly — destroyed another human being in the process. That’s nothing to be overlooked or marginalized by his fans, especially those of you in this thread who fawn over him in your comments.

    Billy, if you ever read this, peace be with you. I hope your path will now be set to right and that the rest of your life will have true meaning and be used to bless and serve others. Good luck.

  107. 107 Dave Nov 6th, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Yes Billy Lane took a life while driving drunk , and there is no amount of time in jail or prison can bring that person back ,, im sure Billy is very well aware of this fact as has to live with it forever. Unless you are a person that has never made any mistakes or didnt do any wrong to anybody in your lifetime ,, and can prove to being just as the Messiah,,, dont cast a stone because it makes you look like a useless idiot that probable has OBAMA 2012 stickers on your bumper.

  108. 108 Joe G Nov 9th, 2013 at 11:41 am

    Well, had Moreland hit and killed Billy walking across A1A, Moreland would be in Billy’s spot right now. He WAS over the limit, no dispute about that. Not blaming the victim, but, the victim certainly shares in the blame. Even if Billy did the same thing he did that night, if Moreland pushes right a split sec faster, he’s still here.

    But the real reason I posted was to share a story about Billy and my kid. My kid was about 11 and we were at Bike Week. My kid saw Billy an walked up and asked him for a pic and his autograph. Billy was VERY kind and engaging. After the pic, he asked what he wanted signed. My kid said “My underwear!” Billy said “OK, drop your pants”, and my kid did, only to reveal a pair of Orange County Choppers briefs. Billy said “I won’t sign THOSE!!!”, and when he got a “Please, Mr. Lane???” out of him, he said “Sure, I was just kidding”. My kid’s 19 now and the shorts are hanging on the wall of his room.

  109. 109 Terence Tory Nov 9th, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    Joe G :”not blaming the victim”.Then procedes to apportion blame towards the victim.”I’m not a racist, some of my best friends are. ……..”.Thimk.

  110. 110 Russ Nov 13th, 2013 at 9:27 am

    Gerald Morelock RIP

  111. 111 Oz rider Nov 19th, 2013 at 3:28 am

    Damn shame for all concerned. We’re all guilty of drink driving, yes we are! The whole situation is sorry. Just part of the human condition. I’d put money on billy’s regret. The whole situation is sorrow. But America being what it is, I hope Billy’s release isn’t a huge circus, and that he’s genuinely humble. Please don’t drink and drive again billy. I know it’s hard. I struggle too …

  112. 112 j Dec 4th, 2013 at 7:44 am

    Just stay sober and your talent will see you thru.

  113. 113 setpavee Jan 2nd, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    Don’t give up billy.I wait to see your motorcycle again.

  114. 114 sexydiva Jan 25th, 2014 at 11:42 pm

  115. 115 tammy Jan 28th, 2014 at 10:57 am

    That’s my Guy… I know he said he was going to have a motorcycl shop in Florida and California when he’s out

  116. 116 Bikes are for sissys Jan 28th, 2014 at 8:55 pm

    To bad whats morality right isnt legally right.

  117. 117 Lessons learned Jan 29th, 2014 at 4:31 pm

    To those that want to be nasty about what he did, know that we are all human. We all make mistakes, though some more tragic than others. It could be any one of us having one too many and thinking we are okay to drive. He paid his dues. And the family of the deceased, who are the ONLY people that have a right to hold this act against him and be angry, have chosen to forgive him. This video proves that. So STFU and let Billy get on with his life. I’m sure he’s going to think about this for the rest of his life and never truly forgive himself. Compassion, Forgiveness and Sympathy are something we all should have for BOTH people.

  118. 118 Decide not to drink and drive, DUH!!!! Jan 30th, 2014 at 8:21 pm

    How about billy gets run over by a pick up truck while on a motorbike, if he survives hes free to go.

  119. 119 jim cattle Feb 2nd, 2014 at 3:49 pm
