For some reason we seem to have a high percentage of police and military (or ex) TEx owners.  Wonder why that is?

Maybe its not just that they buy Explorers, but more that they join, use & actively participate in forums like this because they are familiar & comfortable with being part of a team ?

Born in eastern Kentucky. Raised in eastern Kentucky. Went to University of Kentucky. Then transferred to Belmont College and got a degree in Music Business. Worked on music row as an intern for Polygram and then Mel Tillis. Hired to work after graduation by Mel. Also ran sound in a bar at night and later worked for the Tennessee Performing Arts Center / Ticketmaster. Then went to law school at University of Memphis. Came back home to eastern Kentucky. Practiced law since 1995. Not rich like everyone thinks. I am now a public defender. I also am a MSF/KMP RiderCoach. First certified 2000. Quit for a while after 2006 (divorce, etc) and started back / recertified 2015. Also used to road race through WERA (1994-1996 or 97) then AHRMA (2002 - 2009). Joined IBA 2003. Now a life member AMA. Oh, started riding 1987 (March) as a freshman in college. Wasn't allowed as a kid. This is my 30th year on 2 wheels. Have not been without a bike since and will never be without. At 1 point I owned 5 bikes. Now I have 2 (DR350 is other, I never ride it).
IBA #16129

Yes, I was raised in a barn.
