But thanks for your photo. I have some of him, too.

I highly doubt it was him. He was a vetern rider, and did not ride like a moron

Yeah - I'm grasping onto that optimism, too. Just haven't heard from him in so long...

I know. Everything that Cytukyl said describes him perfectly. I wish I still had his number, but we lost touch and I have a new phone.

RIP...I used to ride Allen Parkway a lot but I guess I will be avoiding the area. It's easy to make a mistake on that road with all the bumps, can't say that I know what Memorial is like.
