    First of all the Joseph Peverelle is from Bremen Indiana and was on his way home from work in Plymouth Indiana (I should know as I am his daughter). Second he is doing well and may be coming home as soon as next friday.

    Thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Peverelle and his family. Does seem to be an error here though as the picture is not of a 2010 Victory Motorcycle but does appear to be some sort of Kawasaki Vulcan.
