As you all know, Rudy (RAZ) was killed a couple weeks ago. In his memory, and to support his family, I bought a sticker from the Flying Swan. In the centre of my gas tank there is a large dimple, probably as an alternate opening for the gas tank (since my actual gas cap is towards the back of the tank). I decided it was the perfect spot to place my RAZ sticker.
Tonight, I was having a coffee with Jenny at the Bread Garden downtown. After walking her home, I returned to my bike and saw something was laying on my tank. From a distance, I thought it might have been a parking ticket, or someone's garbage. However, when I got closer, I realized it was a small bouquet of beautiful purple flowers. It had been placed right on top of Rudys sticker. I'm not sure who put it there, but a group of riders had been sitting at the table next to me earlier. I didn't get a chance to really say much to them, since I was listening very intently to what Jenny was saying to me at the time. I was just curious if it was someone from this board that put the flowers there.
Anyway, I managed to squeeze them between my clocks for the ride home, and they are sitting in a vase on my coffee table right now.
