Reportedly, in an incident where he was driving one of the Monster Yamaha Tech Three team trucks to Le Mans for the French Grand Prix, Colin Edwards' crewchief, the great Guy Coulon, resulted in the Frenchman being charged with manslaughter.
According to reports, Coulon was stopped at a toll station on the way to Le Mans and somehow accidentally backed over a man and his motorcycle, dragging him and resulting in his death. Coulon said that he never saw the rider or the motorcycle.
Coulon, beyond being a gentleman, is one of the top motorcycle tuners in the world. He is renown for his amazing fabricating and machining abilities. Legend has it that in the early 1980s Mr Honda and top lieutenants of HRC saw a single-sided swingarm bike of Coulon's and bought rights to it.
