On January 9th, a group of Pekin, Illinois bikers were riding west on I-74 when they saw a girl about to jump off the Murray Baker Bridge. So they stopped.
George, their leader, a big burly man of 53, got off his Harley, walked through a group of gawkers, past the State Trooper, and said to the girl, "What are you doing?"
She said, "I'm going to commit suicide."
While he didn't want to appear "sensitive", he didn't want to miss a be-a-Harley-legend opportunity either so he asked, "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?"
So, with no hesitation at all, she leaned back over the railing and did just that ... and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another one.
After they finished, George got lots of approval from his biker-buddies, the onlookers, and even from the State Trooper. Then George said, "Wow! That was the best kiss I've ever had, Honey! That's a real talent you're wasting, Sugar Shorts. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why do you want to commit suicide?"
She responded, "My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl."
It's still unclear whether (she) jumped or was pushed.
