Damn, so many lost riders lately.

So sorry to hear of it. What a great guy to inspire all these fond memories and kind words.

Bill was the man. Watch over us now Brother. Godspeed.



We just lost a great man down here too. I know exactly how you are feeling.

I am still just stunned by this news...Bill is a great person and will be greatly missed. I'm glad I got to ride with him a few weeks ago. My thoughts and condolences go out to Cori and the rest of the family. I just don't what else to say...

Ride in Peace Milktruck.

I'm saddened to hear of this loss to our family and hearts. I've known Bill for a while and first meeting him at the track years ago, he was always nice to me. The community lost a great friend, mentor and guy. RIP.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Lets just say stories about the milk truck have been heard all the way over here on the east coast. That's the kind of impression Bill left on me. Truly a great loss for everyone.

Condolences to his family...
I was behind him & the girl on this ride, it was amazing to see the skill and ability of Bill to toss that thing around, the ONLY time I ever have scraped my exhaust on my duc was on this ride trying to keep him in sight, Bill & the milk truck are iconic. At a loss for more words.

Coming off the loss of our brother in Salem three weeks ago this just added to the tradegy and loss for the community as a whole. Bill was something akin to legend and folklore for his ability to get around whatever corner he was in regardless of being solo or 2-up. I know I speak for my brothers and sisters down south when I say that if there is anything we can do we will. For now we will keep Cori in our hearts and minds as we all grieve the loss of icons.

RIP Bill...



One of the first riders from PNW that I ever met...

always one of the coolest, forever one of the best.

I'll miss yer sense of humor and yer easy going, laid back style...

but most of all, I'll miss yer big ear to ear smile.

God speed brother... God speed.

Oh my God...Art and I are sick to hear this news. We are truly saddened and shocked. He was an awesome rider and a mentor to Art (goathead1300) , and a wonderful person. He will be sorely missed. Our prayers for the entire family. Godspeed

I only got to ride with Bill a couple times a year if that, but I always loved the times spent between rides. I can't thank him enough for the advice he gave me in years past. Godspeed Bill.
