Thats Right Baby!

That dude has got to be somebody we know. I guarantee that Rider has a screen name. His new one should be FireRider or Flame_On

Yep, I noticed that also. Not many riding around with those type paniers aren't on this forum. Now will you please step forward and identify yourself?

I saw that on the news last night and hollered at the wife to watch! If he (she?) isn't a fellow inmate, we should at least grant honorary status as one.

LOL.

I checked the deaths and suspected deaths - a motorcyclist wasn't mentioned, but if he's anything like the rest of we Gnarly Adventurers, he's a loner and no-one would miss him for months - NAY - YEARS

Sadly, there is a wife missing from that fire, so the death toll may go up to three. Possibly four, but we may never know about The Lone Rider.

It may just have to go down in ADV-rider lore that he once existed, and was once seen - and that he gassed it hard after a mere moment's hesitation in the face of "suicide."
