Rodrigo,

As I understand it, the motorcycle community around the worls is already aware of this sad event. I´ve heard that the family is coming to Brazil and that his body will be cremated here. I´m planning to attend, I had the chance to speak with him over the phone a few times and we exchanged some emails but he never made it here to Ilhabela (I was away when he was closeby).

Here´s his blog: http://adriankemmis.blogspot.com/

I guess the best thing we can do in his honour is to put our bikes on the road and get lost in the wonderful world.

Just read Adrians blog ... thanks for posting the link. There are many of us who would probably not be aware of the free spirits that dare to follow our dreams ... it seems that Adrian was one of them.

Is it better to go doing what you love ..... or dying in your bed many years later wishing you had dared to follow your dream?

Adrian Kemmis

Adrian was in Rio de Janeiro about ten days ago. He stayed at a hostel in Ipanema about 6 blocks from my apt and seemed to make instant friends with several other young visitors from Europe and the US of whom there´s plenty around here this time of the year. We were going out to dinner but I had to cancel due to an emergency with a client. He went to a night club instead, with his new foreign friends, and the following morning confessed that it was actually much more fun than having dinner with me!
To the many friends Adrian made while in Rio de Janeiro, whoever and wherever you are, please know that he left us while doing what he liked best.
I heard about the accident this morning from Marco Antonio Caneco and when I got home went straight to advrider to learn more.
Tell me how I can help.

Apparently he was attempting to overtake a vehicle when he fell off the bike and was hit by a massive truck. The family has already been contacted and the Embassy is handling whatever needs to be handled. This kid died while doing something that he loved.
Another life lost... This is horrible and extremely sad for everybody involved. It should be a reminder to all of us that motorcycling is dangerous and the danger very often comes from others than ourselves... you can never let your guard down. Hopefully for Andrew there are bikes in heaven.

Yamaha XT660R carter protection

Hey guys,
I'm looking for 3 carter protectors for my XT660's... My local Yamaha dealer doesn't seem to be able to find any. He's been trying for 2 months now.

Anybody here knows where to find these things, or maybe an address of someone who can make them?
Thank you
Ride safe.
Raf

I just watched Adrian's video in his blog spot. Nice young man, about my sons age. What can anyone say except condolances to the familly and that he died doing what he wanted to do. So very sad. Rest in Peace brother.

Raf,

do you know the Clube XT600 forum?
It is a brazilian ADV rider forum in portuguese. Very useful to get info about the XT660.
And one of its sponsors is a web shop. I've bough some products from they. You can find the carter protector there.

Abraços,
Linhares

Hey Rodrigo,
Thanks for the info my friend.
This forum is really "the max" (and so are all you guys on here )
I'll check out the links.

I think it's pretty stupid of Yamaha that they don't make the protectors.

Keep it safe
Raf

wow... 104.000. Good stuff. How old is your bike? And did you have any serious problems with it?
I'm asking because I currently have 4 XT's that I am going to use in my touring business... I'm pretty confident that the XT660R is one of the best bikes on the market here in Brazil. I know, BMW is good too, but I'm not going to pay a lot more for a bike that is just a little better. plus... I never really liked BMW. Don't ask me why, I just don't.
I also have two Honda Falcon, for people that aren't used to the gravel and dirt roads here in Brazil, but I don't know how good (or bad) they are. Honda has a good reputation and lots of oficinas, so I guess I will be ok with the falcons too. I guess I'll find out pretty soon once I start touring

So... I hope you can do another 104.000 with your XT :o)

Take care Robson.
