Blue Knights help disabled former officer get motorcycle repaired

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Six local chapters of the Blue Knights, a law enforcement motorcycle club, presented a former police officer with his newly repaired motorcycle Saturday.

Blue Knights raised over a thousand dollars to pay for the repairs.

Retired Seattle Police Officer Mark Sigfrinius was shot and paralyzed from the waste down during a traffic stop in 1989. His motorcycle with a side car makes it possible for him to keep riding, but needed repairs so the Blue Knights stepped in.

"Otherwise the bike would just be sitting in the car port and that's no place for it. It needs to be ridden. It's just wonderful that everybody got together and pitched in," says Sigfrinius.

Full Throttle motorcycle shop in Kennewick did all the work at a reduced cost. Blue Knights then rode to Goldendale where Sigfrinius lives.
