    For the past couple of years, a man has been sighted riding an all-black Suzuki and wearing a samurai helmet while carrying swords. I've noticed him a couple of times downtown, but apparently no one knows his identity.

    Video of the samurai a few blocks from my apartment. (Not taken by me.)

    The previous mayor of Portland, Tom Potter, issued a statement through his office on the unknown rider. If you are a samurai-biker and have been feeling oppressed in your particular city, perhaps a move to Portland would be a welcome change. (Not a samurai, but more of a knight-biker? You're welcome here, too.)

    The statement from Jeremy Van Keuren, Public Advocate, Office of Mayor Tom Potter:

    *Nerd Fantasy Alert* I can imagine him jumping off his motorbike pulling his swords out with him.

    He is bad ass.
