Thanks BRW-

He was gone before I arrived here, but his spirit must, to an extent, live on here in his many forum posts.  Go and read through the Ride Reports archives, people, and you'll see.  The banter between Uncle Ernie and BRW in those threads borders on comic genius!

There's that pic! Thanks  BRW, I have been looking for that pic for my slideshow. I had no idea he was still fairly young . Anyone ever find out what brought him down? F'n shame really.

GM, You are correct. Now i remember, some kind of complications from the wreck.  He was only 3 years older than I.  Scary, as we age, we become about as durable as a teacup.
