One of the true legends of Motorcycle riding died on the weekend. I had the opportunity to meet Lyle last year when we were at an LD event in Mississippi.
Lyle was a very nice guy and to quote one of his good friends
"It's only a question of time before someone says, "At least he died doing what he loved." But I can't help but think that if Lyle knew what was about to happen to him on Sunday morning, he'd have probably taken the bus".
I hope I live longer and ride as far as Lyle did, his life was too short.
I have a picture somewhere of Lyle with Bob Higdon and Dave McQueeney each of them has over one million documented miles on motorcycles.
