Los of a fellow rider

I am writing this note with a very sad heart.

Yesterday we lost our good friend and fellow COOL RIDER Bruce Gold (BMW R1200C) to an accident in Laguna Beach CA. What a treble and shocking .... we just rode together last week

From the brief article it appears that he didn't have a chance. Condolences to his family and friends.

Re: Loss of a fellow rider

Sincerest condolences to all friends and family.... very tragic.

I hate hearing of someone being "taken out" by circumstance, we are all such mere mortals.

Sad news indeed. This seems to be the sort of tragedy none of us can plan for. Ride safely all.

Re: Los of a fellow rider

It's strange when someone you were talking to just a week ago is suddenly dead. It reminds us it could be anyone of us, any time.

My condolences to his family and to you, Yair.
