Motowheels - Martin Wong

Just learned that Martin Wong from Motowheels recently passed away.

Motowheels sent out an email to all the people on their customer list this afternoon. It said,

"With a heavy heart from the team at Motowheels we would like to inform the motorcycle community about the passing of Martin Wong which happened unexpectedly on September 10, 2017. He is survived by his loving family, many of whom have worked here at Motowheels. Martin started Motowheels in 1999 in his garage and grew it into the business it is today in Rancho Cordova, CA. He was a big part of the Ducati community both locally and globally and was loved by many. Martin will be missed but never forgotten."

I've only dealt with them a couple of times when ordering parts for my 1199/1299 and they have always been helpful and courteous. My condolences to his family. RIP.

motorcycle related death? if so, they are by definition unexpected, though probable.

RIP
