Jay Reed Julson, a 45-year-old motorcycle mechanic and inventor, modified Harley Davidson motorcycles for speed, a passion authorities believe led to his death this weekend. Julson, who operated a motorcycle repair shop in Oak View for years before moving to the San Joaquin Valley, took a curve on California 33 too fast, lost control and was thrown from the bike, authorities said. There was no evidence that he had been drinking at the time of the accident Friday night.

More than 200 motorcycle riders, many decked out in black leather draped with American flags, pulled out of Port Hueneme and roared down Pacific Coast Highway Sunday morning in recognition of the war veterans who made it home and those who didn't. "This is about the POWs and MIAs and getting everybody to understand they are still there," said Vance Scott, a 67-year-old Simi Valley resident and veteran of the Vietnam and Korean wars. "You can't let it go."

President Reagan, riding the successful efforts of Harley-Davidson to fight Japanese motorcycle competition with the help of limited government tariffs, campaigned Wednesday against mandatory trade sanctions. "American workers don't need to hide from anyone," he said. The President made a brief trip to this small industrial city in southern Pennsylvania to draw attention to what he views as the role that limited trade tariffs and quotas can play in helping beleaguered American industry.

A group of Irish mobsters pulled up in an SUV outside a barn and makeshift gun warehouse, where a band of gang members parked their custom-made Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The men huddled inside the barn, as bodyguards in leather jackets and armed with chains and foot-long knives swatted away flies and eyed one another with suspicion. After a tense exchange, the men got down to business to discuss a weapons deal involving a Mexican cartel. Whether staging weapons deals, gunfights or motorcycle chases, the FX television series "Sons of Anarchy" is creating mayhem all over Los Angeles — and that's a good thing.
