Did you ever see him go to town with his Benelli? Crazy.

RIP

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

One of those people I am in awe of. He ws inspirational and also set an example for shooters to be ever mindful of being safe and responsible. I was unaware he was ailing and wondered why He hadn't been on TV recently.
Godspeed and Rest in peace.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

Going to miss him, he would come to our club every so often and put on a great show.

A motorcyclist is the only one who understands why a dog rides with it's head out the window.
