Sad, to say the least. My prayers are with you. Time will help in the healing. My best friend was killed in 1982, and at times, I still feel his presense while riding.

Godspeed Papa

Sorry for your loss Eagle
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies
but not everyone lives. --A. Sachs

You should not chose your friends just on
how they treat you, but how they treat
others as well. This shows what kind of
person they really are.

The pain of change remains the same until the pain of remaining the same exceeds the pain of change.

I'm sorry to hear this...

I went through the same thing in '05. We had logged almost 100,000 miles together. It's been 3 years now and he still rides with me on every trip. We're stilll telepathic, he's still in my mirrors and everytime I sneak through a thunder storm I look up and wink at him. When I enter a corner a little hot and pull it off, I think of how we would talk at our next stop. I just finished a 1600 mile ride and traveled many of the same roads and stayed in many of the same hotels. I thought it would be sad, maybe even wierd. It wasn't. We still talk, laugh and see the same things. I miss him very much. Help his family, tell his stories and re-live his life as often as you can.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT is who that was!!!!!!!!!!! He was another one of my friends! In fact he came to my house last yr to talk bikes, and was going to loan me some saddle bags!

Megga condolences to you Eagle 1. I know you guys were riding buds. I am sure you and every one who knew him are beyond words in greif. I am so sorry. If there is anything I can do let me know. This makes 3 people in 3 weeks in this area, that I know, that have died!

I used to ride by his house in the 80's and see a trailer loaded with all kinds of adventure bikes and tons of MotoX gear......

this is unreal...........


REST in Peace Papa!

Sincerest of Condolences!!

Really hate to hear this kind of news. Thoughts and prayers out to his family/friends.

Do we know if this by chance happened in East Tennessee yesterday afternoon? It is being reported in Knoxville that a man from Lousiana hit the back end of a truck in Blount County near Townsend, TN yesterday afternoon and did not make it.
