MPD motorcycle challenge

MOBILE, Ala (WKRG) –  They ride motorcycles for a living. They go through intense training. So Mobile Police motorcycle officers definitely have the “skills to pay the bills.” And this weekend, they’ll be giving you the chance to challenge them. A few days ago, they met up with me to show me what’s in store.  They push the limits on massive Harley Davidson motorcycles, twisting turning and scraping footboards on the ground. They know how to ride.

Now it’s your chance to show off your skills at the 2nd Family of the Fallen Police and Civilian Krewe (P.A.C.K.) Challenge, ” we encourage civilians to come out if you want to hone in on your skills and get some pointers and tips,” said Corporal Ryan Blakely. 

The challenge will happen in May in the parking lot of the Shoppes at Bel Air in Mobile. Saturday May 4th is practice day and the actual competition is on Sunday. 

It’s $35 dollars to ride, and the money goes to support the families of fallen police officers. Mobile lost two officers exactly a year apart. Officer Justin Billa was shot and killed on February 2018, exacly one year later Officer Sean Tuder was shot and killed in Mobile.
