Back in 1977 I was in a motorcycle crash on the Calumet Expressway. Was rear ended by a drunk driver. Flipped me end over end and I slid on the pavement for what seemed like a mile. Lot's of road rash but I was fortunate to not have been run over by oncoming vehicles or suffer broken bones. I woke up the next day in the worst pain of my life. Best wishes to the PO.

Watching from wisconsin says "I don't ride in illinois and haven't since I bought my vacation home in wisconsin. I ride on county hiways and stay aware of slow moving farm vehicles. I often go several miles without seeing another vehicle.

For an off-duty accident? They'd be running from emergency room to emergency room 24/7.

You don't have to get rid of your bike. Just stay off that godforsaken highway. Heal up quick brother.

Let's think about this for a second.....

Who really wants any Command staff anywhere near them off duty?????


No thanks. Can't say I care for most of them on duty.


As for motorcycles, they are like guns, booze, or tattoos, they are not for everyone but everyone is entitled the choice.

Obviously none, unless its a gang banging thug they hide, the real leaders are gone but not forgotten, the way we are treated is ridiculous and you expect a member of that gold star glee club to show up?

For everyone asking if bosses visited him. That morning I saw something strange. Not a single bosses parking spot was occupied at the Academy. Not one. I wondered what happened. Now I know.

Wrong on all counts, but, hey, you had to post something, so why not a stupid comment.

I brought Gary up to honor his life and death and it should be plain to see that the post I attached it to had to do with an MCY accident on the Calumet expressway as was his. See the connection? I too, rode with Gary. 'Nuff said.
