Another good one gone…
Wherever you may be now, hopefully you will find a motorcycle to ride non-stop that needs no gasoline stops, has tires and chains/sprockets that last forever — nor requires valve adjustment service. That is when you were always at your happiest in life — when you were zooming down that highway on your Ducati Monster and the miles passing beneath your wheels kissing all 48 states in one non-stop ride or whatever crazy long distance ride was next on your agenda in life to make happen. You proved that one little tiger can sure kick a lot of butts of many men on bigger motorcycles with unlimited budgets.
RIP my friend!
