No pic at the moment, but he rides with us in the west...
(Even, or especially, in the snow!)
Cheers, Dr Cool.!!!

And all the best to those who knew him.

RIP Brother

Just reading the Toronto Star Wheels section this morning and found out one of our own passed away last July.

Dr. Cool was a regular here in the Oilhead section. Dr. Cool died in a deer collision on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Here`s the link to his last post...

I first met Dave online here and he invited me to his shop where we downed a few pops from his own draft tap while discussing how a newbie could do his own service. A real gentleman and a giant among the Adventure tourers in southern Ontario.

``A little while, a moments rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me``. Godspeed brother.

Fair winds, my friend. Never met him, but in reading some of his posts it seems he was a lover of life and all those around him.

Anyone have a link to the Star article?
My G/F works in Toronto and told me of the article.

*edit* found it.

Hi Rick!

We are selling the stickers to raise some $$ for the dr cool kids trust fund. They are $20 each and I think everyone should have 5! ;-).....You know....couple of bikes, the pickup, lawnmower and lets not forget the airplane....

The easiest way to get stickers is to make a deposit to the trust fund (information at the bottom of the page) and send me a picture of the deposit receipt. Ill divide that number by 20 and send you that number of stickers to the address that you provide. Please send the picture and the mailing address to my handle @ me dot com

Drcool's Family Trust fund Donations:Scotiabank Transit #80242, account #0615889,

Cheers

Ron

Hey Ron.

Any options for paypal or Interac transfers for those of us who don't have Scotiabank branches around?

Love the Stickers idea... Gonna try to get around to doing a deposit asap.

Oddly enough I had to grab my buddy Doug's number from our phone book today, and right above it was Dr Cool's number.
