    ...ride fast, take chances...

    Seemed, I dunno, kinda radical the when I first picked up a copy at Mach1. :lol3

    There was a time when that was one of the main reasons to swing by a moto shop, just to pick up the latest copy of CityBike. Yeah, it was a good run.

    At Patrick Moriarty's Life Celebration back in January;

    I met Brian Halton again for the 1st time in a decade.

    I never made the cover like other S.F. Northstars M.C. folks did;

    But I did make the bottom of page 16 doing some KTM suspension testing.

    THANK YOU Brian, Surj, and everyone who contributed to City Bike! :-)

    Sorry to see it go it was fun to read way back when. He is correct that riding and riders have really changed over the years...and not for the good as he stated.

    Patrick & Brian were both Northstars also. We rode together for many years. More crazy stories than I can remember. :-)

    I stopped reading City Bike in print when the only shop local to me that carried it went under (Black Lightning Cafe). Enjoyed many a breakfast there reading CB.

    Sorry to hear; but I totally get the reasoning. Thanks for everything.
