Such sad news. Life is sometimes so cruel as to take one of the best from amongst us. Although I only new him through GS Twins he will be sadly missed on the other side of the world too. Deepest sympathy to family and friends from us here in the land of Oz. :cry:

Its inevitable that if you choose to be a motorcyclist and become part the community you will ultimately suffer loss. This is another sad and tragic example of the fact.

I only hope it was quick and that he didn't suffer.

Condolences to all those affected, particularly Patricks mother.

I never got to meet him in person but emailed and talked to him on the forum here. He will be missed.  So sad to hear.

I'm pretty new to the board here, but I felt like I knew the man. I've read so many of his posts and watched his videos.

What a terrible loss for all of us. And a reminder; we ride, we risk. I am resolved to ride as safely as I can, ATGATT, as Patrick often advised.

My deepest condolences to his family and the numerous friends he made the world over.

My ride to work today will be a difficult one.   :icon_sad:

RIP Addy! Big Rich posted on the GS Resources and I came straight over here... I can't believe this has happened to him... never even knew his name until now, so sorry to hear of Patrick being taken like this. Life can be so unfair, and my sincerest condolences to his mother and brother from over here in the land down under.

I know he will be missed by all on this community right here, it is sad when someone who has contributed so much is taken in such a manner.

The one positive I take from this is that he at least went doing what he loved... riding his GS500!

Er...um...wow. RIP Adidasguy.

Never got out to see the West Seattle Bike Cave, but it held a higher spot on my list of things to see than some of the other better-known wonders of the world.

Hello James,

It's been a tough loss of a friend of over 20 years.

At this time, the family is not planning to have any services or proceedings.

He greatly loved riding with all and working on his GS500's. He was also very generous with turning his garage into a hangout for those to come work on their bike.

If I hear of any change to plans, I'll let you know.

Wow terrible news. I have been off the site as its been winter and I havent got the bike back together due to divroce etc.

However this is very saddening I too would email or pm him and see if he needed parts I came across etc. This is really a terrible and impactful loss to the community and prayers be with his Family/Friends.

RIP Patrick.

Patrick never turned down an opportunity to help, and if you ever met him you knew right away he was one of the most genuine and generous people you would ever meet. I never left his house without a nut, bolt, chrome cap, or something for the GS. RIP my friend, you are missed already.

Have only been using the board for a year, and never knew him personally, but his advice on my many questions and his youtube videos were second to none. He seemed like a fantastic guy, and I wish the best to his friends and family. Rest in peace.
