Successful Ride

You couldn't have asked for better weather for the 14th Annual Ride to Remember:
  • Current and former police officers joined members of the community for Sunday's Ride to Remember Memorial Motorcycle Ride.

    The motorcycle ride honoring fallen officers started at about 9 a.m. and traveled from the former Area Four Detective Headquarters, 3151 W. Harrison St., on the West Side to the Gold Star Families Memorial along the lakefront.

    A group of Gold Star families participated in the ride. Shelly Perez's husband was killed in the line of duty in 2002 and she said Sunday's ride shows just how supportive the community can be to the families of fallen officers.

    "It means a lot to all of us, that our loved one is never forgotten, that these officers and these other motorcycle riders want to show their support for law enforcement and those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice," Perez said.
Stay safe.

Just think, soon all Harley's will be made in China due to tariffs. Guess you better hold onto the old classic if you got one.
