I can't imagine anyone that has ridden Hwy 9, Pescadero or any of the bay area backroads for any length of time that hasn't met, heard, ridden w/ or chatted w/ Gary at one time or another. Very nice guy. I remember Gary doing many "Doc Wong" rides as well as leading some of his own. I have both of his books on riding and his advice to take it just a little bit easier in right hand corners has stuck w/ me to this day. He is the last person I ever thought this would happen too as he was an accomplished racer and mentor to many riders. I liked that he preferred the small green ninja 250 over his larger rides for the twisties. He rode in all weather, wet or dry. Turns out he really didn't need the larger bike anyway. kept most riders behind him w/ only 250 c.c.s.. much to MANY riders amazement. You will be missed. Ride in peace. I know there are a few riders that are on this forum that have met and ridden w/ Gary at one time or another. Just thought i would pass this along. I didn't know Gary very well, but i would always try to get him to ride my RD to get rid of the chicken strips on my new tires! hahah. The time i remember most (years ago) was him on the ninja 250 leading, my friend Steve G. on the CB160 (scraping knee on that little thing) and me trying to keep them in sight. Two AFM riders and one poser...rubber band effect is full swing heading down the back side of 9.
