CALGARY, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - Lehman Trikes is proud to announce that the 2008
Good Turn Trike was presented to Jon Brough at Niehaus Cycle in Litchfield,
Illinois on August 23, 2008. Earlier in the summer, Jon was selected as the
recipient of Lehman Trikes' 2008 Good Turn Trike. Jon had been a policeman in
Belleville, IL for 22 years when he was shot in the face while he and a group
of fellow officers were attempting to arrest a murder suspect. Jon has been
recognized and honored for his work as a policeman by national, state,
regional and local law enforcement organizations. He has also been lauded for
his outstanding community service work with organizations such as D.A.R.E and
little league baseball.
Jon and his wife Wendy were motorcyclists long before his injury and
often enjoyed going on motorcycle rides with fellow members of the Blue
Knights. After Jon's injury, Wendy discontinued her 25 year career as a nurse
to take care of Jon. For over 22 years, the couple has enjoyed a loving and
caring relationship, which is evident by their words and actions. Since his
injury, Jon has maintained his tremendous sense of humor and even makes jokes
about Wendy being in the driver's seat of their new trike.
After the presentation, Jon was whisked away on the back of his new
Monarch II trike arms raised in the air, sun and wind in his face, aglow with
joy and happiness. Jon loudly and excitedly exclaimed, "I'm really livin'
again!" The trike kit was installed by Niehaus Cycle on a brand new 2008 Honda
GL1800 Gold Wing, funds for which were raised by members of the Blue Knights
International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, Illinois Chapter 14. Jon told a
Lehman Trike representative and Blue Knights members at the presentation, "I
can't thank everyone enough who has helped make this possible. I just hope
that sometime down the line, I can help someone else like you have helped me."
Ken Hines, Executive Vice-President stated upon making the presentation,
"It is a real pleasure to help get someone like Jon back on the road. Jon is a
success on so many levels. He possesses remarkable self-worth, daily he
exhibits tremendous courage, humility, and strength of character. He marches
to the beat of his own happy drum. Jon invariably seems to give back more than
he is given. It is indeed a pleasure to help someone of Jon's caliber who is
so inspirational to others."
