A while ago we wrote about a friend, Reno Rick Scarmella, who would accompany us to sturgis.
Soon after we wrote about rick comming on our trip some turns came up in his life and he was forced to cancel his plans for the trip due to a job opportunity.
Last week tragedy struck.... Rick was hit on his motorcycle by a truck who ran a RED light. The accident was so violent that rick was knocked unconscious and his bike was destroyed. Rick was in the hospital for several days and has some major injuries from which he is trying to recover. Unfortunately he will no longer be able to work the job for which he had to fore-go the trip.
Our hearts go out to rick and his family and we wish him a speedy recovery. We will ride with rick in our hearts on the Long Ride to Sturgis. If you are the praying type, please pray for him and his family as they fight to recover economically and physically from this accident. Bikers everywhere watch out for each other and feel for each other when we fall.
