A few of you know that I took a MSF Instructor course back in July. This was the toughest "school" I have ever taken. Out of 8 students I was one of 4 to make it all the way through. The days were long and there was lots of interaction with the other students. I became real close to my teaching counterpart Jose "Q" Quimbico. When we went downtown to actually be evaluated teaching a course Q was partnered with me. When he was instructing I was riding the demos and when I was instructing Q was riding the demos. We spent lunch time together and many hours after class discussing our game plan for each exercise so we would know what one another expected. The day after the course was over and we had passed, Q and I went on a ride together. He rode a R1 and I took my Road King. Well after going on a ride with another forum member on the morning of 6 August, I came across the scene of what had been a motorcycle accident the previous night (Link) . There was a Air Force van and the base Motorcycle Safety Rep as well as other members of the safety office. I pulled over to see if the accident was one of the riders in my squadron (I am the MC Safety NCO). I discovered that it was my friend Q. The driver of the SUV that hit him was going AROUND a damn water puddle on the wrong side of the rode!!!

Well today we did a ride in honor of Q and went by the scene of the accident. Q's brother had told me they were going to place a cross at the site of his passing. The cross is really cool and I had to share with my fellow riders. R.I.P. Q!! I will miss you!!

Sorry about your loss. If it wouldn't get stolen, it would be niceto have Pondo put your buddy's name on the sprocket.

Ryan,
I am sorry for your loss, the memory of your buddy Q will live in your heart and mind for the rest of your days, everytime you ride you will think of him. I can not think of a more fitting tribute.

The cross is a wonderful memorial to a biker and truly unique. You have my heartfelt sympathies and condolonces.

Jay
