CoachDave's Memorial Anniversary Ride 4.05.2011

For those of us that were blessed to have ridden with him for the short time he was with MH, SBM, HPC:

Strongly encouraged to be experienced riders w night riding due to the nature of the ride and the distance we are going.

Regardless of weather conditions(if a factor) we are meeting at 242/45 Shell/McD's at 8pm Tuesday Night for the ride. Wear appropriate gear and remember to come prepared w well functioning bikes to prevent downtime for the group.

We are welcoming vehicles like last year to come as well. Keep in mind riding the forest at night we ask you keep a safe distance from us so we dont get blinded by the lights. Same does for riders; no highbeams unless you are leading or an appropriate distance behind the group(which shouldnt happen w a night ride; plan to be riding in one group spaced out adequately at safe speeds.)

Afterwards we'll stop back at the usual spot if there's time. I ask for no one to bring a 'celebatory drink' for the side of the road on Coach Dave's corner this year. If you do, bring it for yourself and be responsible.



Cheers to you old buddy! Here's to an amazing person w a heart clearly larger then himself. In his absense the only rider to gather 115 together for a safe Forest Ride to 3090.

Roll call:

1. TexasPsylone
2. Cali
3.

This is going down a week from tonight. I'm happy with just two or three bikes making our way up there, but it would surprise me if that's all we get.

We were on a BlueBonnet ride w multiple families(trailing in cars.) At the point of the shell station at 30 and 1774 by way of 362 and a few stops for pics in the bonnets Myself, Zorn(rest in peace), otra599 and TexasPsyclone (R6Nick?) rode ahead of the group to stop at Yankees for a bite whereas the rest of the group were to ride on to other spots. Instead of the casual ride and preparation down 30 to a cross over street Dave thought it best to ride 149 to the center of 3090, then double back and ride the same route to cover all of the ride(speculated would take the same amount of time as starting from 30.)

Last we saw him was when he stopped at the 3090/149 intersection. Our pace between the four of us was spirited as a couple were about to get to the track. On our turn back we came up on the scene.

Dave regularly rode w BT016s front/rear and switched to a BT023 on the rear of his zzr1200 to retain more mileage out of his tires. Keep in mind Dave continually ran with popcorn on his street tires from street riding(no joke, the man could corner.) This coupled with the fact that he waited for the last biker to turn onto the correct entrance to 3090 and played catch up to reach the front. A corner was misjudged too hot and he rode the ditch before contacting a solid post.

The remainder of the details are for those that were on the ride, closer friends and family.

I know regrets were mentioned about some that left the scene to try to get their truck etc and to them I continually say you did the right thing and I'll take the blame for agreeing you to leave the scene. As always, special thanks to those that stayed w family and visited in College Station.

He was an incredible man that listened fully to anyone's opinion patiently then would express his as unoffendinly as possible. I was there for his first meet and his last ride. Nothing but laughs inbetween the few months he rode w us. The day prior to his passing we visited his home for his wive's bday party after a morning ride and danced w his family, ate some great food. He was an inspiration to many of us.

He was loved by many - both personally and by reputation.

Righteous indeed!

I've never seen so many bikes in one place in honor of one person. There are a few videos you can search in addition to Matt’s above that will show you just how deeply his loss was and still is felt. That's why we ride next week. It’s really a small thing that we do, but that’s how we hold on to him – we remember. I’ll be raising a crown n coke at Rookies afterwards and perhaps even see who I can get to sing “Wave on wave” with me since it’s karaoke night.

I'm going to make an effort to squeeze this ride into my schedule. I still miss having him around. I haven't done too many rides since his passing. I was suppose to have gone on that ride, but I was too tired from working all night the night before. When I heard what happened it changed something in me. Just haven't been into group rides too much since then. Been more of a solo rider since.

I still save a picture of him on my phone, even though the service was full his wife made sure it didnt start unless we were all inside to see/ listen to it, a great family and a great man, he bought my lunch just a week or so before the accident because I was leading a slower group and he didnt want me to have to wait for a burger, thanks again coach.
