Very interesting. Have you googled this, or recalled it all from memory?!Last time I looked... the gate Belushi walked out of in the Blues Brothers movie.... The gate looked like this.
It was welded shut 100 years ago after a riot where the prisoners tried to break through that gate. They kept smashing a railroad coal car against it. The 1-131st infantry Illinois National guard put the riot down before they broke free.
They opened it up for the movie and promptly welded it shut again and added some concertina wire for effect. And the iron bars. The Joliet Prison been closed since 2002? There abouts... Recently opened for tours.
I am currently working with Mach1MotorSports in Vallejo, Ca - will finalize and hoping to get a delivery of my SCR950.
I had it on my '06 FJR and it was great. I never needed it, thank God! The bike was new, so it didn't break down. On the other hand, I bought an 11 year old GS that had switched ABS. Nice option to have as long as you remember to switch it off BEFORE you descend a rutted out fire road in the Rockies!😱 That, and the system started having fits, like $2000 to fix it fits! No ABS for me, thanks.
