Just wanted to say that if it weren't for Patrick's videos, I wouldn't be wrenching my bike right now. Godspeed in the afterlife.

Still think of you often Pat.

He will definitely live on in our out of control collecting habits, controlled courteous riding, and true love for the Zuki's. If my GS is here when I do my next tire change I'll be engraving a memento trefoil into my fender brace :thumb:

I'm visiting home and my sister has a new kitten. She is anything but an angry cat.

I think the bike has a loose magneto bolt....which I probably would have realized sooner if I'd just heeded that one video that I watched and thought I'd never need....

Be well in the hereafter, AG.

I only joined GS twins a few days ago and yet Adidasguy's videos have helped me more than anyone or anything else in terms of repairing and taking apart the bike. Seemed like an amazing person and after reading the comments on here, it seems he was even more amazing than I had imagined. Two years after  passing away, he is still helping and gaining the admiration of people who have never met him. If that is not a sign of a great man, I don't know what is.

Rest in peace, from me and my GS.

I really like his video on pulling the bike onto the centre stand, never occurred to me to do it his way and whereas it used to be a massive heave ho or two, it's now easy.

I'm so glad you posted here, Aaron. I'm still catching up on GS news.

May your moccasins and motorcycle tires make happy tracks in heaven,
And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder and the shoulders of all who love you.

I tear up every time I look at this thread. It's hard to believe it's been over 3 years.

To think these bikes and forum, and the impact he had- that that's only a fraction of his life we experienced... just incredible.

Wrenching the bike and enjoying a cold one for you tonight, Patrick. Cheers 🍻
