    I have stories about him that make me smile. I'll bet anyone that spent any time with him will have a story as well.

    Found it. On his way to the 2009 Mn1K. Those stories just don't stop. It was Daggy who took the pic.

    Thinking back, I believe I first met Kevin shortly after noticing this after the motorcycle show in early 2008. Or maybe 2007.

    Holy crap. Saddened by this news. I hadn't seen Kevin in quite a few years but rode a number of TS events with him in the early 2000's. Spent a few days with him at the Charleston, WV rally. Kevin was just a hoot and a joy to be around.

    Only on bald, 50 year old tyres. Otherwise there's no sport in it.

    I want to remind everyone that the service for Kevin Kocur is this Saturday, September 7th, at the American Legion in Osseo MN.
    Visiting hour will start at 10:00 a.m., Celebration of Life Service will start at 11:00 a.m. with lunch to follow.
    As you know, Kevin Kocur had many different passions- Motorcycles, scooters, animal rescue, breweries, etc.
    In lieu of flowers, The family has asked that you donate to your cause of choice in his name and wear something that shows what you support to his Celebration.
    Kevin is greatly missed.

    fullsizeoutput_1388.jpeg I love this one that I received in a envelope attached to a pallet from Wagner. (I work at Hirshfield's Distribution Center) The envelope had my name on it and I wonder what the heck is in it, then I pulled this out. Love you Kevin, rest in peace.

    It's a grievous loss. I can't be there tomorrow, but I'm thinking about Kevin.

    Fancy... I had a G850G for a summer... more of a grandpa style compared to yours (big windscreen and sissy bar). What a nice bike - shaft drive, smooth, decent gas mileage.

    Who’s planning on the Huntersville Trail Ride next weekend?

    Pending weather forecast, I may be camping.
