    Like some others, I never met Angelo, but in this small world we enjoy, the pain is no less. Godspeed Brodo. You will be missed. :cry

    "Oh my god" was said aloud when I looked at this thread title. Never met him, but what a fixture he was here. Full of info and good cheer. Those pictures gave me goose bumps as he looked like someone who is surely a role model to many. Just very very sad to hear this. Thinking about his wonderful friends and family today......godspeed brother.:cry

    We never met, but in all our interactions, he just seemed like the best of what this place is all about- funny, sharp, generous, passionate, and real.

    These threads are seem way too commonplace these days. I wish I could've met Angelo. RIP, my best to his family and friends. :cry

    Gutted... read the news first on David P's facebook page a few minutes ago... dumbfounded.

    Angelo and I had some correspondance (both in here an off the ADVRider site)... a meeting in the real world was always on the cards... at some rally or event sometime in the future. But to date I never had the opportunity or privelige to shake the mans hand; mores the pity.

    As everyone here knows (the F5 crowd in any case) a much more passionate and dedicated rally enthusiast, you'd never find. He lived, ate and breathed rally... and is a big part of the groundswell of enthusiam that the sport has enjoyed in his part of the world these last few years.

    RIP Brodo... ride on mate, I (along with many here no doubt) will bear a black F5 armband this coming january... in your honour. It won't be the same without you, out there on another part of the globe spanning F5 interweb time/space continium... it sure as heck, always was fun to know that you were there though. You will be fondly remembered by many of us Angelo. :devildog

    R.I.P sad a name, a tag, discussions, contributions, but lest not forget there is always someone behind the tag, someone with friends and loved ones. My heart goes out to them. i didn't know Angelo other than just from his posts, common themes.

    Ride with the angels, you will be missed , by us here and by those who loved and cared for you.

    I'm too new here to remember anyone, but by your guys' descriptions he was a great person, a great friend and with great love for this passion we all share.

    This is very sad. My thoughts are with his soul, his family and friends, and may he be riding the Heaven with that great smile.

    Very sad news, I first got wind this morning and spent all day hoping it wasn't true. Such a great fellow in the sport of rallying and doing what we all love, riding motorcycles.

    A special person when you realise even though you have not met the guy, it's like loosing a close friend. The magical place that brings us all together is today the bearer of terrible news. You'll be missed Angelo, keep the wire tight up there.

    Very very sad news...
    I met him in Albania while racing our bikes. He looked at my helmet, my ADV sticker and asked me whether I contribute here. I said yes, a little bit. He said I am Brodovitch, look me up for.

    Always with a smile and a cigarete hanging down in his mouth... :lol3
    That is the picture I will remember.

    Not only this community will miss you much. Godspeed my friend.
