House members honor Cretul with motorcycle gear
After a 15-minute slide show of pictures from the session, House members presented Speaker Larry Cretul with a sweet red motorcycle and all of the accompanying gear: jackets for him and his wife, a motorcycle license plate reading "speaker" and a helmet signed by all the House members.
Only they didn't give Cretul the bike. It was just a prop to add ambiance to the presentation. He's already got a motorcycle: a "Screaming Eagle" that he bought on eBay.
