I was reading some old threads and realized that tomorrow is exactly one year since Shannon passed (8/4/2005).

I have his little green #'s on both my race bike and street bike. When ever I'm riding he's with me. Just like my old man, I miss both of those guys. Good people for sure! That dude was more of a biker than many people will ever be and more straight up than many will ever be. He liked to help people, and sacraficed his time to do so because he loved doing it. Threads like these spark memories, and thats a good thing.

I'll never forget that CLSB track day night before when we were up late as hell boozing it trying to get that heap of shit EX500 running and I must have smashed his fingers in the butterfly for the carbs like 3 times.

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

I just got back

I just got back from a memorial service with the family at the Lincoln Cemetary in Elwood.

Helps put a lil' closure on it.

Got to ride 200+ miles with Shannon looking over my shoulder today.

Even rode a nice wheelie outta the part in his honor.
