friend lost a kid ...

guys, sorry for touching some nerves here, but i've been shattered by saying goodbye to a young riding buddy, Matt. He was only 17, when a car struck him on his way home, Friday 5/4 here in Greenville, SC.
His dad is one of my very good friends and we've been riding together for years.


Matt was with us in Austin last year, for the GP where he got to meet the riders of the PRAMAC team.

His dad Chris just joined here recently (Yankee) after being a longtime member on ducati.ms. He's been riding ducs for a long time (SF, Monster 1200S) and was looking into getting a 1299...

however, things have changed dramatically for him and his family, Matt leaves 4 other siblings and his parents behind.

If anyone would like to help a bit, here's a link... https://www.gofundme.com/matt-stayer-memorial

Godspeed buddy...

[disclaimer - i've personally nuked gofundme threads on here, if anyone has objections, please PM me]
Thanks from kensteele, Gecko, youngR and 2 others

Oh man. As a dad of two young teen aged boys, this really strikes home. I am so sorry for the loss, both for you and for Chris. I cannot imagine how hard this must be to deal with. This is absolutely heartbreaking.
