    Sambor, a tragic loss for both you and the world.
    You are blessed with wonderful memories of your times together and hope you find consolation there.

    Hi Sambor, it's such a tragic news. Hopefully it won't dampen your adventure spirit and my condolence to you and izi family.

    :( Just seen that tragic bit of news. Words are just not enough to explain the condolences. And we are unfortunately having a minute with shallow words here. Wishing we were with you.
    I know you have lost more than a friend Sambor, a brother.
    We, Adventure bikers are challengers, venturers or whatsoever... They are all in our spirits. We are almost half-dead on our bikes and like feeling it all the way through.
    ''We shall die of having lived.'' The best words to explain Izi's situation.:cry

    Not all men, while they are alive, truly live. It sounds like Izi was someone who truly lived. My condolences to all who knew him.

    Wow, very sad to hear of the news Sambor. My condolences to you and Izi's family. This RR and your adventures with Izi was the 1st I ever read here on ADV, it hooked me (caused me much distraction when I should have been working :evil ) and has made me want to get to central asia and elsewhere to ride.

    Sambor,
    way to keep it going. Writing up about this year in Central Asia is probably one of the best tributes you could pay to Izi. I would also like to express my sincere condolences. Know that he will be riding with you wherever you may ride.
