    Well I wish I could say that it has been a great summer but many things have happened that made this one of the worst years in memory. The passing of my wifes father from Pancreatic cancer was surely one of the hardest things I have had to endure. He was a great influence in my life and was always a very dear friend and mentor. That being said, I did find peace in the little times that I could work on my bike. I had a hard time being creative and hope to have a clearer head next year.
    I feel very lucky to be a part of such a talented and great group of people here and love each and every build off bike. Without fail my jaw hits my desk every single morning as I read through the build updates. The friendly jabs and the "bunny" bumps were priceless!!

    Thank you all for letting me join in on the fun!!
    Chad

    Sloweriderz,
    Sorry to here about your Father In Law.
    Sounds like he was a cool guy. He will live on in your memories and stories
    I lost my Mom to pancreatic cancer ~10 years ago.
