I am having a hard time believing my friend is gone. My thoughts and prayers are with Cori and Bills family, I know how close they are and how sad they must be tonight.
One of my first rides in 2007 was with Bill. He was always smiling, loved riding his bike and was a true Ambassador of our riding community. He will be missed by all. Joe I am sorry you had to post this because I know how close you two were, take care my friend.
Rest in Peace Bill, I will miss riding with you.

It's okay Diana. I know Bill is up there giving me shit for not being long winded with my post like he usually is with his stuff. I've added a quick detail on what happened to my original post.

The few encounters I've had with Bill always involved him doing something genuine and well intentioned for others. He will be very missed.

I Ride: For Rob, Gary, Bill, Sax... and the newbs
I can not imagine the pain Bill's family is feeling.

People that ride two wheels - if it can happen to Bill...

EVERYONE please slow down and take a breath, for Bill, Rob, Gary J...

Let's not start guessing, or worrying about what happened - instead focus on ONE thing: what does Cori need???

Cori - this group, this community loved your man - it's time for you to feel the community's love returned. With all my heart I wish I could give you the one thing you want, but I can't. I'm in tears thinking about how much you miss him and how I bet the last thing he was thinking about was you. I'm so sorry this has fallen on you and your family. I can not fathom the depths of your pain...

PLEASE do not hesitate to ask for help!!!!

Oh man! This is really really sad too, with so so many RIP riders recently. And for those that were with him, I feel your pain.


I never had a chance to meet SpeedGeek, but talked with him through PM's about good roads in OR. Seemed like a really cool guy.

Prayers to his family and friends.

Lee found words for me... this is a huge loss for MANY within and outside of our community.

Rest in peace, Bill.

I'll never forget the rides alongside the Milk Truck. Nor you.

I met Bill a few years ago when he helped me check my bike out after I blew a corner and ended up on my back in a field, and a few other times since then. Always super nice and friendly everytime I ever ran into him. Sorry to hear he is no longer with us. My heart goes out to his family and friends. RIP Bill.

One of the few guys on my "brother" list. This has been killing me all day. I can't believe I won't see him again. I am sad beyond words and pray for Cori and the kids.
