|Peter Kollock Memorial Ride
Peter Kollock, a customer, friend, and one of our personable GDR riders who became known to us as "PK", tragically lost his life on a Saturday morning in January, when he was blown from his F800GS by a strong gust of wind. A prominent and well-loved Professor of Sociology at UCLA, Peter left behind many students who were changed by his teachings. UCLA will be holding a Memorial Service at the campus on Saturday March 14th, from 3pm to 5pm.
I have been asked by the family to organize a motorcycle ride that will serve to honor PK's memory and his love for the sport. As such, I will be leading a ride from the shop on that Saturday 14th, routing through some of the Malibu mountain roads he so enjoyed, aiming to reach the UCLA campus at between 2.30pm and 2.45pm. The route will cover about 65 miles of winding roads and take approximately two hours.
The ride is coinciding with the Memorial Service and is open to anyone who wishes to ride with us - attending the actual service will be your choice. The Memorial Service and Reception is being held from 3.00pm to 5.00pm at the De Neve Commons, 2nd Floor UCLA Campus (map here).
We will rendezvous at the shop around 11.45am in order to depart at 12.15pm, and would welcome your participation.
