RIP Wesley Combs, 1 year later.

It's been now a year since his passing, though I didn't know him very well, I still think about him as a reminder of just how easy it can be to lose your life.

I hate that I don't have much to say, since I only met Wesley one other time besides that day. I do keep him in my thoughts.

Till this day, I still don't and don't plan on taking that same route or turn to get to Navasota. Just do t want to.

May you be riding the twisties is heaven, Wesley.

I wish Peace and comfort to your lovely girlfriend and family.
RIP Wesley Combs, 1 year later.

Man I was just talking about him last night.
I had only meet him once before too, but doing such a calm regular ride and having this happen left a huge impression on me.

Seeing pictures of his life before this also left a huge impression on me.
RIP Wes...

Been through it, know what it's like. Still ride with a reminder of Matt on my bike to remind me what can happen and that i have a family waiting for me at home.

Condolences to all that we're involved.

yeah man...unfortunately. Still saddens me to this day losing a friend on what was an awesome leisurely backroad run....the loss of Matty was the catalyst that got me off the streets...not sure if I'll ever return. Ride safe folks.

Koskesh, YankeeR6, Coach Dave, Roman, Pigpen and more that I'm probably leaving out....RIP to Wes all the friends of MH that made it Heavens streets before we did!

I think this could be tough, but still a good idea.
