A Sunset for Keith

L. Keith Raske, motoblogger and all weather rider, passed away, January 27, 2017.

He was a man who rode in all types of weather and conditions, and many including myself followed his postings detailing his commutes and rides.

His blogs were "Did He Ride Today?" and "Twists and Leanings".  First time I saw a picture of him, it was of this maniac who'd just gotten home from riding on two wheels in the snow....I knew then he was someone to get to know!

This was during the early days of my present fascination with snowy weather riding and along with other moto bloggers like ScooterintheSticks and RichardM, he is partly to blame for my riding predilections!

We lost him to cancer, which he'd been fighting for quite some time, and there'd even been hope of remission but it was not to be.

You will be missed, Keith.

Here's a set of sunset pictures from today, here in Colorado, in Keith's memory.

Sad news, Dom. I did not know the man himself, but only what he cared to share on his blogs. He sure had a passion for riding, and rode almost every day, rain or shine, or snow. R.I.P. Keith.

Thanks RichardM, he definitely was a rider.

SonjaM, I never met Keith in person, we rode in all weather together in spirit.
