Hi everybody, It's been awhile since I've been on and hate to bring sad news but felt compelled to do so. Yesterday a fellow rider was killed outside of Reform AL on his way with friends to go riding here along the coast, I was going to host them for the ride. His name is Troy we met 2 weeks ago in Hardy Arkansas and rode together for a few hours up there. He was the lead rider and was passing a tractor when the tractor made a sudden left turn in front of him, He was air lifted to Tuscaloosa but did not survive. Even though we just met I feel we had a bond tighter than that and would have been very good friends. I will miss him. If he can leave a legacy for us all it is this story of how we can never be too careful when riding. I will ride today in his honor.
