RIP Mel. My condolences. We all know our sport and passion has its risks. It is part of why we enjoy it. It can happen to any of us. If it happens to me my friends and family know I'm indulging in my passion. Ride safe and enjoy.

We wanted to jump in with a heartfelt thanks for all the prayers and kind words.

Just a quick update... Mel will be taken to his final resting place on Friday. We got a medical report and it looks like Mel’s blood sugar at the accident site was in the mid 600’s. For those unfamiliar, that’s almost coma range. it was probably a contributing factor as that can slow a person’s perception and responses. Mels diabetes and lack of being on medication after a diagnosis had been a topic at lunch. PLEASE, take care of your health. Your life may literally depend on proper medication and diet.

Ride safe and take care of your friends! They’re precious! Appreciate you all.

Diabetes is not a fun disease, but if you are diligent and do the right things you can control your readings. I've been type 2 for 20 yrs and when diagnosed my readings were a little over 400. :eek: Even as careful as I am with diet, exercise, etc. I still have my ups-n-downs.
