Thanks for the report. Very thought inspiring.

I must say that I am still feeling raw regarding Iep, maybe what I need as well is a good long solo ride.

Thanks for sharing.

.....it was the whispering sound of the wind.....

Maybe Iep was riding with you and he will do many a ride with you riding on the on the wings of the wind.

Thanks for the report and ride safely

Awesome tribute M - wish I had your way with words but then again, we need all sorts...

Thanks :thumleft:

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

Thank you for sharing your thoughts Blazes… I really connected with your words and loss is something everyone deals with at some stage!  Loss not only to death but loss in all aspects of life. The soul will never rest until it finds its way, until the vision is cleared, the pain…. the pain of that loss will eventually fade but the scars will remain forever…

A friend sent me this link to a song… it is powerful and just expresses it all!!
