Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the world again, glad you could make it back. Well it's been a very sad week for the entire motorcycling community, what with Nicky Hayden so tragically losing his life in what on the surface appears to be a fairly minor scrape with a car while out training, and then the 21st anniversary of the passing of a great New Zealand motorcyclist Robert Holden. Our sport that we all love so much can be a cruel mistress that's for sure. She takes in such such huge slices that it can leave a person empty for the rest of your lives, and it only takes a minute, a moment, a memory for that loss to come flooding back in and you feel the pain as acutely as if it were the first time. Thankfully our sport, our passion, sometimes our reason for being, also gives back in spades, and in ways that sometimes you can't measure, the rides, the friendships, the people you meet along the way, that moment where it all clicks into place and there is nothing, nothing that can replace those feelings.I guess that's why we are all still here and still riding. So lets get on with it, getting a bit teary eyed so enjoy, see you at a track, or on the road, or in a dry warm cafe, but see you somewhere out there. Get Some.
Gone but never forgotten
