RIP

This past Sunday I received a message that a dear friend of mine, Starlite, had been involved in a motorcycle accident on his way home from watching the MotoGP race. I was told that he was being transported to a local ER and by the time I made it there, he had passed.

It is easy to say flattering things about those who have passed, but Starlite truly was an amazing guy. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Austin a little over a year ago. He had a big personality and an even bigger heart. He was a skilled and responsible rider, and a wonderful friend.

The collision that took his life was one that we should all be eternally diligent in avoiding. A car did not see him and pulled out right in front of him. He did not have time to react and struck the car in a T-bone collision (the occupants of the vehicle sustained only minor injuries) and was incapacitated, never to recover. Please take this opportunity to renew your vigilance in riding defensively and being constantly aware of your surroundings.

For those of you who are networked to riders in the greater Austin area, you may have seen his logo being displayed by your friends on social media sites. I have attached a couple photos that are representative of him as well as his signature logo (hey, when you have a name like Starlite, you gotta own that ). Additionally to any riders in the Austin area, there are several benefits being put together for the family, two of which on Sunday the 12th. PM if you would like details.

RIP, friend.
