RIP
So sad to hear of this.
The entrepreurial spirit, thinking outside the box, and marketting after passion...all snuffed out at once.
Terrible for their families, and possibly for all motorcyclists.

Meeting these guys and family in person at the Open house was such a great experience. There enthusiasm and love for this product was great to just be around and absorb. What a huge loss. My condolences go out to there family and friends. Rest in peace.... God Bless.

Missing you!

Mats, who always was a 100% help and support when I was in the need of parts and ideas.

I miss you, my thoughts go to family and friends.

I'm just stupified at this news...

My thoughts and prayers for those men and their families.

I hope this isn't the end of US Highland.

This is a sad discovery. My heart goes out to their loved ones. It seems that it puts this thread into perspective. All the minutia about a DX is suddenly, so non important. I'll take a ride in their honor today.

There's a really nice article in the leading Swedish newspaper on Mats' death:

http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article7452754.ab

It's in Swedish, of course, but the Google Translator does a fair job of translation.

Like all of you, I'm very sad this happened. I hope the company can live on.

Just read an article about US Highland in the August 2010 issue of Motorcyclist lastnight. Then, I checked here a few minutes later and got this sad news. My thoughts and prayers go out to their families.

What a terrible and tragic accident! I hope US Highland can survive this.
