RIP Rod Young

This week we lost one of the founders of our Wednesday night Bike Nights.  Rod Young passed away on Tuesday at his home.  I had run into Rod a couple of weeks ago at the Sun and Fun open house and he had updated me on his fight with cancer.  As always Rod was optimistic about his health and had a genuine interest about knowing what I had been doing.

All who knew Rod knew his passion for his family and for motorcycles.  Whenever I ran into him I knew it wasn't going to be a quick hello and be on your way.  We would catch up on our recent bike excursions and who was riding what.  I had the privilege  of going on several rides with Rod.  Most memorable being the 2009 fall Slimey Crud Run.  It was definitely slimey and cruddy but we had a great time. 

Rod Young RIP, you will be missed.
