Our beloved Mad Dog Gordon

I know I haven't posted in years, but I just found out.

I don't do facebook, but bunny just told me Gordon is riding the golden backroads now.

Gordon was the first person I ever met from this forum, so I feel I must relay my love and prayers to his family.

Some of you knew him well. We logged a butt load of miles together, everything from bike week with the whole Florida crew, to just us 2 doing our thing. He would come every time I called. He taught me how to lower the vol, and towed me once or twice. He ALWAYS loved riding.

I say this my friend, I wish we could have just a few more miles together. I'm sure we'll meet again at the designated time.

Love you my brother.

I'm too new to the site -
but my prayers go out to Mad Dog and his family.
San - may the memories of your miles together assuage your grief from the loss of a good friend.

Ok..I was NOT home-schooled, but that is neither hear nor their.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
