For those not following Facebook, it has come to pass that our close friend and fellow Gruver & Pterodactyl... D2D Logistics Coordinator and General SmartAss/Instigator has been going thru some health issues recently. Kevin is currently in treatment for throat cancer, going thru Radiation and Chemo. Prognosis is good, and reports are that he's getting down to fighting weight, so watch out young bucs there'sgonna be a new stud in town when D2D rolls around this June!

Fight hard Kevin, can't wait to hoist one w/ you and Annie in the Downtown Bar w/ the group... Remember, bald is beautiful, as I should know... and Legion... and Fastlane... and The Dick... and AKTroy... and AKBob... and USbyGS... and Ptero... the list just keeps going and going...

You're in our thoughts and prayers dude!

Hang in there, Kev. Once you finally get to that magical 'bald is beautiful' point we'll send you a commemorative buff pad with all our names on it and a picture of dick.

I don't have a real good prayer connection and I'm not sure how to lead a coffee toast but if it's possible to send best intentions long distances; brace for a bunch of good thoughts and strength from me. Keep a paper sack handy in case the first few batches make you woozy.

Good luck and don't pass up a good opportunity to whine to Annie!

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Slay the bastard invader and you won't be looking like no Dick when you are back for D2D.

All the best to you both!

This description of Kevin is so true. Iíve learned a lot about motorcycles and riding from my mentors, the two Geezers, and I learned a thing or two about becoming a ďGeneral SmartAss/InstigatorĒ from Kevin. I used to be sweet and charming until I met these three men, but then I had to develop smart-ass/instigative skills to try to counter some of the teasing my Delightful DR and I have received at their hands.

Alas, if it wasnít winter, my Delightful DR and I could make a special trip down to MT to spread good cheer and encouragement in person. Since my DR is well-known for helping other bikes run well, Iím sure her presence could help Kevinís health condition improve. Unfortunately I just bought studded tires for my bicycle so I canít afford studded tires for my motorcycle. Plus an ADVer invited me to a fun party I donít want to miss. (I have plausible excuses - Whew!)

I think AlcanRider should be generous about sharing Maggie and put her on his borrowed motorcycle trailer and haul her down to Kevinís bedside so she can assist Annie in providing the proper care required to fight this terrible disease. (If the thought of my DR and Maggie visiting him doesnít prompt Kevin to get well ASAP, I donít know what else will work. )

Maybe we should chip in to buy KHuddy an illustrated book on how to properly enjoy retirement, as spending time in a hospital is NOT a pleasurable way to enjoy his golden years. Actually, I know health issues can strike you down at any time and present unwelcome challenges; itís not a joking matter. But heck, if Kevin canít talk much, maybe Annie is enjoying some respite from his smart-ass remarks?

Hey Barb Ė do you have a nice hi-vis headband for Kevin to wear to keep his bald head slightly warmer? Or maybe we could apply hi-vis duck tape on his head to provide additional insulation. I might reluctantly help with thatÖ.

Kevin - get better soon! My two DRs and I will send healing thoughts your general direction. At least youíre not in Fairbanks, where itís super cold with high levels of particulate pollution.
