Cry Vaya Con Dios - Baja Turtle

We lost a great guy over the weekend. Anyone who has spent time riding or racing in Baja and had a chance to meet Ken would agree.

Sorry for your loss, I never knew or met him, but I liked what I saw on his FB page.

Honda XR650L (Dual Sport)
Honda CR250R (2 Smoke MX)
Honda CR500AF (Awesome machine!)
Yamaha WR250 (2 Smoke X Country/Trail/Desert)
Yamaha YZ426 (Plated!)

Don't know the details but very sorry to read this. Never met him though I've read he was passionate and fruitful regarding his causes. I only read up on him after he rode backwards on the 1000 course and found Kurt.

I have only heard his name, and a few stories about him. Sounded like a truly awesome guy, RIP.

What can I say…..

Ken was one of the nicest person you'll have meet, I do regret not to have find the time to go riding with him at least once. He invited me many times but work was always in the way or bad timing I guess. He had incredible devotion and enthusiasm for the sport, his eyes will light up every time he will talk to me about upcoming races, or motorcycle events…. I'll really miss him
