Only rode with Alex once and it was a great ride. He really looked out for us newbies. As soon as he saw that we weren't going to kill ourselves, he really carved those canyons

No point going to Ortega without Alex. That whole scene dried up after his passing. Even if he didn't know it he was the glue that brought a lot of us together.

R.I.P. Alex.
I'm sorry that I didn't get to ride with him. It's so sad what happened. I don't know if the driver got more than a slap on the wrist either. Those kind of drivers are the stuff of nightmares. However, we all accept the risk when we sling that leg over and turn the key. But do I struggle more balancing the risk management of brisk twisty riding, nowadays.

I couldn't of said or put it together any better. Alex was one of the first I met off this forum, eventually we started doing near everything together. Ortega together, watch movies, play games, drink/eat together, talk on others haha. Alex was a HUGE part of the riding community and this forum. Ever since the incident Ortega has never felt like Ortega to me ever again. I miss him a lot, whenever I see a green kawi I think Alex....

I'm so sorry I didn't see this allot sooner. Alex donated to my friend Stephanie in 2014. She went down on the second half of ACH. I know he will be missed. Only knew him for a little bit but super cool guy.
