Ken Morton, Godspeed


I'm very saddened by the news of Ken’s death, more than I would have expected for a person I only met once.

I had driven my motorcycle out to Washington state from Ontario, Canada, and met Ken through a mutual friend, Ted Timmons. I remember that meeting Ken was like seeing an old friend -- it was all very relaxed and comfortable, like we had been friends for a long time.

After changing my oil in Ken's garage, the three of us took the "long way" up to Mount St. Helens, a challenging and scenic ride I will never forget. I really pushed the boundaries of my riding abilities that day, but both Ken and Ted made it all look so easy.

After I learned about Ken's accident, I dug into my photos from that trip, and have been thinking back to what a great time it was. As someone else had said here, Ken was one of the good ones.

My condolences to Ken's family and friends.
