We lost two great people this week who also happened to be part of a wonderful little motorcycle community we’ve all built here in NY. Both will be dearly missed and our thoughts go out to their friends and family.

It makes me smile that my last conversation with Dale in November was about a absolute wreck of a ’61 Ford Econoline project he was considering taking on (and that he knew i was crazy enough to appreciate it). I would have liked to see how that turned out.

Ride On and RIP, Sheila “Sparky” Germain & Dale Hoyt.
