Default Remembering Matt Vaughn..........

Vaughn 1966 was his name here..........

Most just called em Matt.

Seems I just missed the anniversary of his passing 9/19/10


For the newer members,

Matt was on a ride with me and a few others from this site, when he crashed and passed away on the auto road @Mt. Greylock Ma.


Miss you brother...............


P.S. I rode to the site the other day and the found the marker we (BORN)placed on the tree.....it's STILL there!

No you don't.. then you'd miss them as much as those who did. Still have both their memorial ride wrist band things on my table @ home in plain view.

Is it still a "mid-life" crisis at age 40?

Well said. I miss them both very much. I obviously have way more constant reminders of Reed (what with all the RSP swag I own), and not a day goes by that I don't feel that loss. I smile every time, but it stings. Hell, it stings just typing this response.

I have a lot of good memories with both of those guys. Miss them all the time. Always wondered what life would have been had they not passed away. I was just up at Grey Lock last month and snapped this pic. Matt was an awesome guy.

Miss Matt all the time. I have made quite a few trips up to Greylock to visit. They were both great people and I am privileged to have known them.
