    The Ride The wind was gentle and the sun was bright, Chances are we’ll be home before night. The road was deserted and curves bent to and fro, The freedom we feel is more than you know. The sound of the motor the roar of the pipes, The feel of the wind in our face …This is our lives. We stop for a smoke and tell a few lies, A wonderful time just hangin with the guys. The long haired guy was always so much fun, If you needed a laugh he was the one. Always quick with any remark, A barrel of laughs with a very big heart. People come and people go, But when some of them leave…Man you miss them so. We wish you were here, to be by our side, So we could enjoy once more… The thrill of the ride!!!! Rest In Peace Johnnie Powers The Aisin Bikers and your “Brothers In The Wind”

    How old was he? Was speed a factor?
