Unhappy the gsx-r1000 world just got a little smaller...

last night, we lost mpdgsxr1000 to a heart attack. he was 34 years old.

mike (aka the grizz) was a founding member of this site, an amazing person, a great friend, and a great rider/racer.

his gsx-r1000 was also one of the best looking, and most highly modded 1000 there is. here is a link to his bike: https://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=176026

there is a thread to pay your respects in anything goes, here is the link: https://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=217767

woke up to a text from his brother (jrd), and kept thinking it was a bad dream.

r.i.p. mike...


Used to race, used to be fast, won a few championships.

Rest in peace Dad... I love you, and I miss you. 05.18.43 - 10.11.10

Still Can't belive its true. 34 is WAY WAY to young.

Rest in peace Mike, you will be missed!

Very sorry about a fellow rider dying so very young.
He has a GSXR 1000, so I know he lived LARGE.

RIP fellow rider

Wow. I wasn't expecting this when I clicked on this. Rest in peace Mike. I remember seeing mpdgsxr1000 with his funny avatar a lot looking through the forums. This sucks.
