    I wish I'd had the pleasure of riding with you my friend.... I'll remember our many phone conversations...

    Rest in Peace brother.
     
  3. Thanks Chris, that was good.

    Very sorry my Go-pro camera was/is jacked up and couldn't contribute to your video.

    I know man it sucks.
    I feel as though it was an honor to be on that ride. I'm just sorry it was a one time gig.

    Anybody else have footage of his last few rides?
     
  6. Ok this was the weekend before Caslaw's video, it was the last hooligan ride we did before Bill died. the pace was "brisk", just a small group of guys having a blast on our favorite road.

  10. Thanks for the vids. I know I was on the ride you posted up Chris, and I think I was also on the 2nd Video too... Good rides, good friends, and a life taken too quick.

    Trayson you are in front of me in the first part of the video heading up to Pine Creek RS.
     
  12. Although not a recent ride with SpeedGeek, this was one of the VERY RARE times I was in front of him, keeping him in frame on a stretch of road I've never been on. Riding lead is something I just don't do because frankly I have no idea where the hell I'm going. You can even hear Bill in the beginning giving me directions for the route while I nod in agreement, pretending to understand what he's talking about. crackup:

    Only been here once, but I'll never forget it. Things were clicking for us that day.
