My condolence to Eileen Steinke and the Petersen family and friends. I had the honor of becoming Mike's friend during our high school years at Appleton West and we remained close friends ever since. Mike loved riding his "850T" Moto Guzzi motorcycle. Mike and I would do many rides together, and we always looked forward to our yearly trip to Road America for the motorcycle races there. I can proudly say that Mike and I were friends, classmates, Ironworker brothers and last but not least, we were motorcycle riding buddy's. Ride on Mike...until we meet again, LUV U MAN.
