as you all know we lost a sbw member this past weekend doing what he enjoyed - Riding!
i grieve alongwith his family and friends at this moment and hopefully this will serve as a reminder to all of us that it is a dangerous world out there and that we all need to understand our limitations.
i suggest that sportbikeworld.com observes a moment of silence to reflect on this tragedy. i would recommend setting aside a certain day and time to not post anything out of respect for michael.
i would suggest say tomorrow (Tuesday) from 5pm est to midnight. these times are totally flexible if the rest of the members dont agree with them. again, this is just a suggestion and you can tell me if i am out of line. i know that we have several international members as well. they can figure out the time difference if they want.
i know that we cant do anything and that makes me feel more helpless. it was only a matter of time before one of us went down
but we can definitely mourn the loss of our comrade and i figured it would be a nice tribute to michael if we all did it together.
I couldnt agree more. This is the best bunch of guys around and i know michael would really like that. Thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers i am passing this on to his wife and i know she will be happy.
A terrific idea, Arif. And many thanks to Robert (or Will), for putting the reminder up.

I was shocked when I saw the message, while I didn't know Michael personally I have ridden the same mountain road many times that he crashed on. It was the least that I could do by posting the message at the top of the forum.
