A great man left us today
It is with great sadness that I pass on the news I just found out a short while ago.

Fellow PNWR, US Navy veteran, father and dear friend Mike Bartlett, aka mikefsu, was killed while riding today, doing what he loved most. He had just gotten home from his last tour out at sea with the Navy yesterday and today he went on a motorcycle ride with his friends in Oregon. The only information I have right now is that he missed a curve and was killed instantly.

Please keep him and his family in your thoughts, we will all miss him greatly.
