I'd competed with/against Randy in trials for many years in the 70's and 80's. He was a great rider, a true competitor and, most of all, a real sportsman. He was always quick with a compliment or a joke, ready to help another rider with either mechanical or technical riding help if you asked him.
After a 25 year hiatus, I bought my Tiger 800 XC from him in Oct. '11. Love my Triumph, but I bought the bike because it was Randy. I found out about his death today when I called the shop to talk to him. After I somewhat recovered, I jumped on the Tiger and took a ride. I think Randy would have wanted that.
I'll miss you buddy.
