i had to back out of the FTM event this year, i didn't know Bill but it's obvious it was my loss. Please ride safe everyone, no more "incidents" this year, if that's all that can be taken away from this.....

I am so lost for thought right now, Before PNWRIDERS I met Bill on a ride. The Milk Truck. ..............Can't believe this post. Bill I hope you are in the hands of God right now. Praying for you my friend. I cant say here how sad I am. Bill thank you for your passion for bikes and how you taught and protectected me from things. The Lord has you now.. Damn this breaks me apart.

I didn't know Bill but i can see from this post he was a very well loved fellow rider that will be missed by everyone.
After loosing Mike this week in the same way i know exactly how his friends and loved ones are feeling and my heart goes out to you.
I am trying to think of all the good times together and not how things have ended.
The tragic events of this week have changed how i feel about riding, i have not givin up but after 30 years of riding i finally feel like it could happen to me if it could happen to these skilled riders.
Nothing wrong with slowing down a little bit for me,I have nothing to prove.
I never want to put my family and friends through this kind of pain.
R.I.P Bill

While I've never met you or Bill, I've talked to him enough to consider him a friend.
Your hubby was a fantastic guy. Bill tried to make my annual ride two or three times.. this year he had to bow out due to last minute circumstances and told me "definitely next year".....

Dammit....

Please let us know if we can help in any way. You and the family will continue to be in my prayers.

I cannot imagine what you and the kids must be going through...

Thanks for sharing Bill with us, Cori. We are forever in debt to you for that/the moments WE had with your loving husband and father to your wonderful family.

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.

The community is most definitely here for you and your family, as I'm sure you're surrounded by many of them now...

Joe: we're here for YOU, as well...

I'm so sorry to hear this. I'd only ridden with Bill a few times and bumped into him at the track here and there and maybe a bike night... but I always enjoyed his company and he was always very friendly and kind. PNW lost someone great. My condolences...

Just couple of weekends ago we were up in the hill off of Estacada target shooting with Bill and now hes gone

This has been one of the worst summers ever! We've lost way too many fellow rider, especially, great people like Bill.

R.I.P brother! you will be dearly missed in this community!

I rewatched a video clip recently where in one of the caption lines, MCA8690 said [about Bill], "He may be slow but he's got a vicious dog to back up all the talk!" hahaha

My favorite post of Bills
'busa track pic's

I'll miss running into the Milktruck from time to time out Klickitat way.
