WOW!! My heart and head ache at the thought. :eek::(:( Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Your riding the good roads now friend.

Damn it man! I never met the guy face to face but I consider him a friend.

60 miles an hour with the wind in my face
hands up on the grips and my feet up on the pegs
going down the road for a ride somewhere
before I get too far, I say a biker's prayer

Won't you watch over me while I'm riding today
send me down an angel to keep me steady on my way
cause you know that I'm not perfect
i'm in need of some salvation
in the meantime let me ride in peace
through this beautiful creation

my women sits behind me, high up in her queen's chair
one arm around my waist, one hand goin through my hair
the peaceful countryside is filling up our senses
and the rhythm of the ride it makes my soul break through the fences

For me it's not about the chrome, the leather, or the steel
It's all about connection to something beautiful and real
when you're balanced on two wheels ridin gentle sounds of thunder
rollin past the fields in this spell that I'm under

won't you watch

casue i've gone down so many roads where I never should have gone
and I've done so many things that I never should have done
but every mile that i've ridden. I'd ride'em all again
cause I live to ride and ride to live at peace with what I am

I always hate hearing about a bike accident. We ride because we love it, then something like this happens. I didn't know him well, but it still touches home.

Schming 09-16-2012 09:08 PM

My sincere condolences to his Freinds and Family.
I'm sorry , just lost for words right now :-(

May God Bless Cy's Soul on The Ride Into His Hands

Condolences and prayers to all of Cy's family and friends
Motoman called me this afternoon and told me that Cy died. He'd just told me yesterday that Cy was in the hospital after a bike wreck but I really thought he'd be alright and I'd be able to call him after he got out of the hospital so I could rag on him for messing up his bike -- again! I had planned to make another run up north and stop off in Lodi and Sacramento this summer but I put off the trip this year. I should have just gone.

I got to meet Cy and some of his family last year after the July Durango rally and I was hot, tired, and hungry that evening in Sacramento after the long ride down from Vancouver, WA that I'd begun earlier that morning. I got to meet some of Cy's family while he cooked up some HUGE hamburgers on the grill for dinner and somehow managed to not burn down the front porch when the patties caught fire. After dinner we talked, told bad jokes, and laughed while we tossed around some theory and parts for Cy's idea to replace the XS11 self-cancel circuit before I had to saddle up and grit my teeth for second leg of the ride home.

I'll miss Cy, his indomitable grill skills and his sense of humor!

Brings a tear to my eye... It's always hard to hear of such horrible losses. He will be missed by many people.
