i was actually going to ask you guys to see if you wanted to take a memorial ride for him. and take that route maybe stop at that corner say a little prayer for him and go from there...

Good idea, might be tough for me since no bike.

yeah, I would visit the corner, but not ride after, it would be too much in my head to enjoy, maybe if it's a really really slow ride.

This has to be one of the saddest threads I've ever read. It's also one of the most inspirational, since you guys seem to remember Wes so fondly. I never got a chance to meet Wes, but he sounds like a great guy. RIP Wes!

Helen Keller once says something that could have been written for motorcyclist:

Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature,
nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

I agree with you guys, caging it or riding shouldn't make a difference, regardless it should be a slow, slow ride in memory and respect of Wes and open to anyone and everyone. I myself would probably ride.
