    A man who died in a motorcycle crash and another found dead at a regional park each were identified by the Contra Costa County Coroner's Office on Monday.  
    Three people were wounded by gunfire on an Oakland freeway late Friday when they apparently were caught in a gunbattle between the occupants of two other vehicles, police said Saturday.  
    When I rode my ancient Nishiki 10-speed bike to the old Mercury News offices in North San Jose, I was reasonably certain where I was most likely to be clobbered by a car.
