Motorcycle News in shot M40 biker ad gaffe

'No-one ever wished they'd stayed in more'

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The UK's Motorcycle News earlier this week contributed a cracking example to the "unfortunate juxtaposition of content and advertisement" genre with this piece on murdered biker Gerard Michael Tobin:

Motorcycle News piece on dead biker with Harley Davidson ad declaring "No-one ever wished they'd stayed in more"

Given that Tobin was riding a Harley-Davidson FXSTB Night Train when shot on the M40 on Sunday, it's hard to see how this could be bettered.

Police, meanwhile, continue to probe the 35-year-old Canadian's death, and have asked anyone with info to call either Warwickshire Police's incident room on 01926 415581 or anonymously via CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111. ®
