I read the news yesterday and could not find the right words to say. Now 24 hours later I still cannot get the right words together.

Perhaps it is because there are no right words to use in these circumstances
Yes, he´s still in hospital - and I will let him know that all known and unknown ADV-Riders will be with him!!!

Friendly sad regards

Martin

I can only say the same. I'm looking to the picture he's smiling with bacon. That's really hard. Let us do things we love and are important for us. Nobody of us knows how much time we have...

Traurige Grüße Elmi
