    More bad news - Oldguy in a horrible mishap ...

    Known on this forum as 'Oldguy' ... Mike was riding the country backroads near Lynden last weekend with his wife as pillion, when some idiot in a pickup blew a stop sign and smashed into them broadside. Mike's wife passed away shortly after the accident, and apparently Mike is still in intensive care in the Bellingham Hospital.

    If anyone has any up-to-date information about Mike's condition, please post up.

    Be ever vigilant out there!

    I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.

    That's horrible to hear Ken my heart goes out to Mike's family. Mike is a great guy that I've got to know over the last few seasons. I hope him the best so sad it's been a horrible year for our community.

    My wife is the trauma surgeon on call at the Royal Columbian right now and she mentioned they were getting a patient from Washington yesterday who was in an accident in which his wife had passed.

    I can't confirm 100% that this is Mike but all the evidence points to it. I will try and get some more details this evening about his condition when she gets home.

    I've known Mike for many years, both as a friend and a collegue within the Subaru family.....I was absolutely devastated when I heard about the accident on monday. Why is it always the good guys....
    Hopefully Mike will be able to receive visitors soon.
    My deepest sympathies to him and Bev's family for this dreadful loss.

    This is tragic news. I had just met Mike on a Hope/Princeton/Merritt loop a little over a week ago. While meeting for coffee, stopping for breaks, eating lunch and general bullshit sessions while fuelling up it was obvious that Mike has been very passionate about riding for decades. The other trait that Mike clearly portrayed was his joy of riding with his wife. With an honest to goodness twinkle in his eye he told stories of her competitiveness as a passenger yelling "faster, faster" while pounding on his back or how she never refused to climb aboard and go for a weekend ride. She obviously shared Mike's passion for the sport as well.

    You have my heartfelt condolences Oldguy on this terrible loss.
