Awfull

So sad to hear about Kevin this morning. I looked forward to reading his Tech and "Straight Talking" columns in MCN. He will be greatly missed, not only by the 2 wheeled community, but 4 wheels as well. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Somehow "RIP" doesn't do it.

Ride magazine and twice so far his advice has been mentioned by other writers when he wasn't involved in the article at all. It's obvious that his opinions were held in high esteem by those who knew him.

Very sad indeed. Coincidentally, I had just read his latest piece in MCN about an hour before I got the news of his death. My sincerest condolences go out to his wife and children at this tragic time! RIP
