In late 1999 after I got out of field training I was assigned to the night shift which included Dave and his running buddy Chad. One thing that I can remember like it was yesterday is those 2 jokers were fascinated with sport bikes. They were also into making those old style lights go super fast. I remember Dave had bought something to make them spin like crazy. I was waiting to the whole light bar to fly off Dave's 1995 ish Crown Vic. I remember he loved Motorcycles. Took a special person to put up with Chad also LOL. Rest in peace brother and I'll see you on the other side.......
