That brings a frown

He was a good guy … and on my short "friends" list here.

He was also on a gun forum I'm a member of. I'll alert them also.

Very sad indeed. I was wondering were he was. Rico was one of the good guys. I was glad to be his friend.

This is a sad thing to read. Myself and my 2005 Yellow-Pearl 1200Roadster will miss him and his 2005 Yellow-Pearl 1200Roadster.
So very sad.
