An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death of Shane Harding, the Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Police said witness reported the victim traveling at a high rate of speed traveling southbound on O’Mallery Bouleveard at 1:50 p.m. near the North Nimitz Highway overpass.

  • Like some cars, some motorcycles are speed devils that are made to be driven fast. Cannot help it. They just make you turn the throttle all the way up.

  • Condolences. All adrenaline junkies know the risk. Just don’t hurt anyone else. Fast cars, fast bikes, big surf, skydiving all give you the same high.
