NEWS WORTHY: chris fiaccone auctions bike for hospitalized friend

I'm re-blogging this gut wrenching story from Michiel's BMW Cafe Racer blog. Please take the time to read it and spread the word:








"I received an email from Chris Fiaccone today. This is what it said:

A couple months ago, my best friend from childhood broke every vertebrae in his neck--and we know what that means. He's a cop in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma USA and was off duty having a pint with his father. A fight broke out at the pub, and the bartender--knowing he was a cop--asked if he could help usher the fight outside. During the process, two guys picked him up and slammed him on his head--immediately breaking his neck and concussing him. The guys then stomped on his head, jeering about what they did to a cop. My friend has 4 young kids, and though he'll likely survive, he will never be the same.

On May 1, there is a fundraiser at the 51st Street Speakeasy (1114 NW 51st St, Oklahoma City, OK 73118-4408) to help his family. I'm donating this bike (http://www.motofiaccone.com/moto/40-cl350-cafe-racer/129-cl350-scafe-racer-alt-flats) to the fundraiser. Is there any way you can help promote the 1.) what has happened to a police office 2.) the event and 3.) the bike donation. It would get people extremely exited to see a bike they are buying on auction featured on your blog . Any promotional help is well appreciated. 

First of all: The world needs guys like this, so the world needs to show it's thankful for people like Chris' friend. And I think Chris deserves a lot of credit for offering his bike to be actioned off.
Please reblog, repost, retweet, email, facebook link, whatever you can think of."
