The real, deserving thanks:

Hot dog: perspective on what happened(back)

Noy and Meredith(Noy609 + MLI820) perspective on what happened(front)

Zorn: leaving to go back for a truck

Burnboy, Otra, Setfast, SaraR:traffic before cops arrived(there are several others helping as well)

R6Nick: medical help before ambulance

Hot Dog: posting thread for MH to pray over CD

ThomasNinja650, Silent636+ImpactBlue: Visiting hospital ASAP for family and coachDave in CollegeStation

ThomasNinja: speaking w family, visiting corner, asking officers for release of bike/gear with family, support for family and other MHers.

Zorn(Andy): Adding to the speech with ThomasNinja, coming up with helmet and idea for signing for the family(donated by his work.)

Gem(Kristina): Setting up paypal for donations and informing family on options, being a strong shoulder for Kim and the kids.

MLI820(Meredith): Constant help with communication to the immediate family to perform necessary operations to help our allowed part in the services.

SquoddyBody(Brandi): Leading the PP69 ride to the Viewing.

My heart jumped when I heard the thundering of the exhausts before you all were in view... And so see soooo many kind-hearted faces.

For those whom weren't there, I greated almost everyone as they emerged from a sea of bikes stacked seven rows across. I turned as Kim and the kids came down from the service hall driveway. She was introduced and she introduced her kids to the riders. One by one everyone introduced themselves. It was very heart-touching. Special thanks to Burnboy for bringing some CoachDave humor to the tears.

Navigator(Carl), TheIrishMick(Mike), Meaner-n-u(Toni) and others for blocking traffic and keeping the lines together on the ride.

Gem, Noy609, Setfast(Payam) and others for taking pictures.

The other communities that have shared rides w CoachDave and came out.


There wasn't a single person involved that I cannot offer my most sincere appreciation. Names were signed for individuals that were not able to make it but expressed concerns as well as others who's hearts were not ready to say goodbye just yet. In each face I saw both days I at least one memory/story/chuckle came to mind with CoachDave.

A collection was taken up at PP69 for the family and the helmet was filled.

I shared with the friends and family during the service the impact Dave made on us all; among the forums(almost exclusively MH) there were 900 post responses and 20,500 views to CoachDave related threads since Sunday to this morning.

As the pallbearers walked Dave down the driveway ramps, around the parking curves He was greeted by rows of idling bikes, revving as he passed, turning off as the sea of family and friends came after. The memorial home had not seen a service that packed to date.

It was our honor to be allowed time to express the very love CoachDave shared with this community. Keep it up MH, its the individuals that make the community, the community that allows us to share the good and the better times together.
