Gus Kouboules’ Facebook page is a celebration of the outlaw biker lifestyle.
That babes, beer and bikes life philosophy may have gotten the 57-year-old man killed late last month.
Cops in York Region identified Kouboules as the man found dead in Vaughan and homicide detectives are now looking for witnesses — and his killer.
A post-mortem showed the longtime member of The Loners Motorcycle Club had been shot to death. He had previously been a member of The Outlaws.
On Feb. 25 around 8 a.m., York Regional Police officers got the call for a body located at the end of a dead-end street at Teston and Rodinea Rds., just east of Keele St.
Armed with at least five Facebook pages under his name, Gus The Greek and Bad Boy, his timeline reads like a well-thumbed copy of Easy Riders or Iron Horse magazines.
The day before he was murdered, Kouboules was active on social media, declaring himself “Old School” and a proud 1%er (the proportion of motorcyclists who allegedly are outlaws).
On Dec. 9, in what would be a prescient post, Kouboules put up a bit of philosophy alongside a photo of himself riding his flame-painted motorcycle: “Relief if it should end. Because the end of a story is a sign that there will be a new story.”

Kouboules has been in an out of trouble with cops over the years.
Most recently, he tried to open a cannabis dispensary in Newmarket but was shut down because he didn’t have the right permits.
In 2018, he was arrested near North Bay for driving while allegedly drug impaired, failing to comply with a probation order, and possession of over 30 grams of dried cannabis in public.
