How Cool, My brother is a cover model

My brother is on the cover, and inset pictures in this months Police Mag. So this might only intrest the Police Officers on the board.

Pretty cool to see that type of stuff, just thought I'd share.

Oh btw, he was involved in an accident that totaled his bike the morning of the photo shoot. He's riding a loaner. Props for riding through the pain to get in a mag. Go fat boy go!!!!

Re: How Cool, My brother is a cover model

I'm sure your brother will buying up those issues, good for him! Damn, he dumped his main bike just before the photo shoot? Dooh! I'd imagine going down to the ground with all the stuff they've got on/around them must hurt twice as much (gun, radio, cuffs, etc.).

He didn't dump it, this time . He and his Sgt. were taken out by a woman who wasn't paying attention, while conducting a traffic stop. The Sgt. broke his leg in three places, and his collar bone because he was hit dead sqaure by the car, and his motor landed on top of his legs. My brother heard the crash turned, and saw two airborne motors, and his sgt on the hood of this red civic. My brother ducked to avoid his motor as it hit the car they were towing. His bike rolled up on the back of the towed car, and the rear of the bike landed on his shoulder.

He spent a few hours in the ER being evaluated and treated than was released. His Sgt. is out for about a year or so.

That and she said the sun was in her eyes.

Fact is she impacted the first motor at 40 mph, she didn't attempt to stop until well after impact with the second motor and the Sgt. being on her windsheild.

Re: How Cool, My brother is a cover model

That utterly careless, truly "stoopid" woman should be charged with failure to
yield, reckless endangerment, attempted homicide, and anything else they
can cook up. You know what? She'll end up with a slap on the wrist and a
$200.00 fine (woulda been $100.00, but she did run into cops, so lets exact
an extra measure of punishment).

Good on your brother for become an internationally renowned cover model.
Now he gets to jack his hire rates to astronomical levels.
