YankeeR6 5yr memorial ride.

To All –

As some of you know we are approaching Matt “YankeeR6” 5th year anniversary. On Oct 13, 2012 we are planning to meet at 290 and 362 then ride up 362 to the accident site then head out to the cemetery near Katy. All are welcome (motorcycles, trucks, cars, etc), just be respectful on the ride as his family will be leading us through the course. We would like to have the motorcycles ride right behind his family then all cars and trucks follow the bikes. If anyone is interested in being a “ride marshal” for the lights and such, please let us know.

Matt’s family still has bags of the yellow “YankeeR6” bracelets left and will be passing them out to who wants them.

Details:
Oct. 13, 2012
Meet at 290/362 at 10:00am with kick stands up at 10:30am.

great guy.... was at TONS of MH meet n greets....attended trackdays, rode the backroads, love his family dearly... was an all around nice guy. The party never started until Matt arrived; his character was contagious....unfortunately called him before the rest of us one weekend on a backroad run.

Many of us have come along after this event, and know nothing of it. Single bike accident? Accident with a car? What took place?
