Went to fellow thumper's Brent Harlow's funeral today in Madera. It was a very good funeral, and learned that he was a huge influence in the community starting a program called New Hope to help young men to get out of gangs and off drugs. I've road with Brent and his sons in the Sierra, and I know he used to go to the desert alot and ride to Primm and other places. Brent was killed last Saturday when he was hit after his bike broke down and he was being towed by a friend. There were both plated and on the Minarets Scenic byway when a car came around a corner fast when his friend managed to swerve to get out of the way and Brent couldn't/didn't have time to get out of the way. At the funeral, they mentioned next year from now having a Brent Harlow Memorial Ride. I will keep you posted.
