There are a ton of comments I could make on this photograph, but I think I’ll leave it at… This. Is. Awesome.
Regardless of all else you have to admit a motorcycle cop doing a stoppie on his Police Issue BMW motorcycle is pretty fantastic.
Note: The officer performed this demonstration on a closed course, was on his own time, received permission from the agency, and BMW Motorcycles of Ventura County covered the cost of a new rear tire (source).
There are a lot of times where I just wish I had died in Afghanistan. And to think of all the times that wish came so close to coming true is almost as bad of a tease as being one number off from winning the lottery.
Every time I see a bumper that features a yellow ribbon or a sticker with God Bless our Troops, I think about how two months ago, we reached a threshold. More young soldiers have now died by their own hands than were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Either we aren’t supporting the troops very well or God is too busy winning football games to take care of those who were wounded internally and aren’t getting better.
