I'd just like to take a moment if I could to mention a couple of things about Corey. If you didn't know him, you can still maybe pay attention to what I have to say.
Corey and I rode a whole lot together after we met. He was always willing to go, and was great company and really easy to talk to. He also helped keep me straight by showing me a few tips and things he could pass along. I think I could go on and on about how I thought this guy was great. So humble, and so sincere and genuine.
What I did learn from this guy, and I hope anyone who showed up tonight remembered. He was a really reasponsible rider, and it just goes to show you that anything can happen - so being safe is where it's at. He also on a more personal note was able to allow me to believe that their is still good in people. He absolutetly was so good, that I refused to believe - and quite honestly, it wasn't until he passed that I realized just how good he was. What hurt for me today was to watch was Corey's mom - while she has likley dealt with this as much as she can - it still doesn't take the pain away, and she is still so obviously still upset. This is horrible news folks.
Anyways, I hope we all got something out of it. I know I did.
Let's ride smart.
We also got a great group shot - although it's rather a bleak moment in time, it's a great tribute to the fact that he's not forgotten. It's not a great master piece, but I threw together a desktop if you guys are interested.
