Very sad day

Please pray for my girlfriends family.

Her Grandfather was killed today in Tulsa, He was an avid rider and had logged well over 500,000 miles in his lifetime. He is a great inspiration to me for being 90 and still sharp as a tack, and riding almost every weekend. He is a great man and will be dearly missed.

He did have all his gear on, all the time.

The coward that took his life hit him at a high rate of speed and then fled the scene. He has not been caught at this time but there are several witnesses that are coming forward.

If you read the posting they assume it was a teenager!!!

Here is the Article from the Tulsa World Newspaper.

Olin Thank you for serving our Country, and being a great inspiration for so many. You will be missed dearly by all of us

Todd & Nancy

RIP Olin

Condolances to all.

At least he died doing what he loved and had something he was passionate about.

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

Tough one tap...What an honor to have a Granddad like that...I trust the Big Man will have his favorite ride ready to go for him and for the POS that hit him a lifetime of his ears permanently attached to an HD exhaust...

If I new what I was doing, I wouldn't still be working
