Happy he has been found, just hoping it is in good health.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank amongst those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

This is so so sad. I do not know the man, but I have seen the support rallied the last 24 hrs on various motorcycle forums/WhatsApp groups, everything from dual sport through to hogs. Tragic,  unfortunately a reality for many during these times. I have not seen Any confirmation of the exact circumstance, however, he has been found, in what state, no doubt the next few days will tell. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and the biking community, clearly he is/was one of us.

I was waiting for confirmation of which way it went - hoping against odds that he was okay but it is not to be. Very sad for all involved.

Condolences to the family

Shit man, was hoping this was a hullaballoo and the guy just went out to chase the black dog a bit, this is tragic, RIP.
It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

@ajax  Was he a member here?
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

RIP and condolences to friends and family.


Guys, depression is a real danger.
Don't underestimate it or its effect - especially over the long term if not addressed.
Get help. Talk to friends and family.
Get some meds to help you through.
You are not weak, just troubled.
Ride with buddies, not alone.
Go into Nature and just be still and listen to your surroundings.
Recalibrate.
Life is far too short to be taken too seriously.
I am far too short to be taken too seriously.

I'm not deaf... I'm ignoring you.

RIP
