To anyone who knew Chris Brock

Hello - I normally don't post on ADVrider, but I believe Chris did. Chris, myself, and another friend on a KLR60 were on a little adventure tour last weekend. Chris was killed by an oncoming pickup that lost control of the boat he was towing. Chris lost his helmet in the impact, so he flew through the air bare-headed. He died from a fractured skull. Please make sure your helmet fits properly, and that you can't pull it off your head after you've strapped it on. Here's a picture of Chris and me two hours before the accident - he's the one on the left. We were in Pattison State Park in northwestern Wisconsin.

I am truly sad to hear this about a fellow moto rider and your friend.

God's speed Chris.

I have no idea what his username was. He just kept saying over and over that I had to document our ride on ADVrider.

Thank you for keeping yourself together enough to make a good public service announcement regarding properly fitting helmets!
