    On July 17th 2013 my best friend 39 yr old Greg Grewell (aka. Poster Boy)

    was on a solo adventure ride on his 07 KTM 990 Adventure bike when

    he was struck and killed on US HWY 95 out side of New Meadows Idaho.

    He was traveling the speed limit, which was 65 mph, and headed due

    south, when this moron decided to turn left, right in front of him. Greg

    struck the rear quarter panel of his GMC Yukon, even though he was

    geared from head to toe he died instantly...

    Greg was an amazing motorcycle rider, and I know if anyone could have

    tried to avoid the accident, or laid it over it would have been him.



    Greg not only loved bikes, he was truly very passionate about them.

    He was a wicked bike mechanic, and was a perfectionist at what he was

    working on, he had this saying "that looks better than factory right there"

    and it showed when he said that.


    Greg was truly a brother to me, and I am so grateful that I had the chance

    to know him, we got to share some of the most epic dirt biking memories

    that you could imagine. I wish so badly we could have had more time to

    share together. I would trade it for any thing...


    He lurked here on this site a lot, Him and I were always emailing

    deals from the flea market, or stuff from the OC forum all the time.


    Roost on dear Brother you will never be forgotten...love you always Greg.

    This is the hardest thing I have ever had to type. Words cannot describe

    the hole I have been feeling in my life, especially in my heart.

    Miss you so bad Brother...:cry :freaky

    below are a few photos of Greg's last ride.

    Greg was Proud of this.... He and a buddy running up Star Trail Taylor park Colorado in the snow. He had this on his screen saver for a long time.

    Seeing those pictures of Greg brings a smile to my face, great guy to ride with, always fun.
    So sad that we had to loose him. Never a ride that I do not think about him at some turn or some fun move. That day (and night) at Taylor Park will always be a top 5.
    Always missed.

    So sorry for your loss and the loss his family has suffered. No words to make things easier, but this is a reminder to us all to live each day to the fullest and "love 'em while you've got 'em."

    Peace to you.

    What became of the driver of the SUV???? I'm sorry for your loss, and rest in PEACE Greg. He sounds like a real adventurer. And to think, this all happened at riding the speed limit.
