Tim, This is the first I heard about Rick being the person who died in the accident. I served with Rick in the Navy and you could not find a nicer person. Rick lost his wife a few years ago in a car accident and had a hard time dealing with his loss. She was a wonderful person. Rick and his wife were very experienced Goldwing riders and enjoyed the hobby that we all enjoy riding our Gold wings. I believe he leaves two teenage daughters behind. I read about the accident but, it has a different meaning when it is someone you know. Very sad.
