I Ride: Monsters


This is my last ride with Bill and his daughter, from a few weeks ago. I don't have any better pictures of him right now, I'd have to dig.

Oh my god. This is so horrible.

Bill was one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet.

Sad sad day for sure. Bill was a fantastic guy that would do anything for anyone. So sorry Cori, my thoughts are with you and your family.

I don't know what to say... I never had the pleasure of meeting Bill, but I talked to him several times. He shipped me an OE can back in 07 after my crash at the track and would not take a red cent..

He was truly an ambassador for our sport and will be missed greatly.

Rest in peace my brother....

Very shocked. Bill was an amazing rider and person. Definitely someone people looked up to in our community. Thinking of Cori and the kids right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hadn't seen Bill in a couple of years but he tagged along with a group of us to go target shooting outside of Estacada last month. I found out that he was just as passionate about shooting as he was about riding and every bit as skilled. Sad and shocking, he was a guy who had a lot of life in him and left the party way too soon.

I'm sure someone does but it seems a bit too soon to start drilling them for details that ended in the worst possible outcome.
