    Too many were killed by those assassins riding in tandem !!! When will the authorities, lawmakers, act to stop these dastardly acts ????? A simple bill outlawing riding in tandem will decrease if not totally eliminate these acts of violence !!!!! Let those who wish to ride with their companions ride a car or a trike???? The criminals use to ride in tandem for a fast and easy getaway !!!!!
