    I am sorry Sambor.

    Izi left a lasting impression on many people in this world. He showed us a world we are aspiring to witness ourselves.

    The video is a beautiful testament for his life.

    I can find no better words than what Flood said... I have always said that You had opened our eyes by showing us places we could only imagine, but Izi was part of that adventure... an integral partner in your adventure story.

    Thank you for posting the video, and honoring Izi's memory.

    Go with God, Izi... We will remember you always, and ride to honor your memory.

    Sambor, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your riding partner, friend, comrade. He passed doing what he loved and has inspired all of us in so many ways.

    He will be missed.

    Godspeed Izi!

    Rest In Peace, Izi. :cry

    Izi embraced the true adventurer spirit, and in some way through your stories and adventures... his spirit will live on. I'm sure he will be sorely missed.

    Sambor,
    We have never met but you have inspired me with the photos and stories of your travels. I am heartbroken at your loss but know that the roads you traveled together in the past will bring you home and together once again. Until then, ride on in peace and love.:cry

    I am very sad to here of your loss. Only those who are left behind suffer and may you find solace in the adventure memories you made together. Sad that you won't have more. I too have lost a good friend, long before we'd finished having adventures and fun. My thoughts are with you.

    Sorry Sambor, these are news a man would never hear.
    Condolences from Udine, North-East of Italy, not real so far from you with my thoughts.
