1 Year Today - RIP Buddy

At about 6:30 PM today one year ago my friend Joe was struck and killed on his motorcycle leaving my house.

We had a small memorial and dedicated 2 bricks at the Roundhouse..
(if you look happen to be there and are curious to see.. His are right next to Walter Paytons bricks)

I just wanted to post up a quick memorial. I can't believe a year has gone by already... My wife spent the day doing her best to not have the baby...

I also wanted to say a big thank you to all of you who came out and rode in that ride to see him off. I really can't thank all of you enough, was one of the most heart warming things I have ever seen.. Thank You.

The bricks on the left and the right are him

RIP Joe.

I remember meeting him last summer when he came in for parts for his 675. Really nice guy.
