Keith was, in the brief amount of time I knew him, recognizable as unique. Just like everybody has stated here, his knowledge was extraordinary and his personality much more than the word generous means. I felt like the coolest kid on the block when I showed him a picture of my TR6 project and he said "oh yeah, that's the right way to do it".
I wish I could ride in honor of him this weekend, but instead I will try futilely to put the bottom end of my bike together as soundly as he would have. I'll have him in my thoughts with each bolt and chunk of the engine I get assembled.
Definitely will have to smoke some Luckys in the process. Unfiltered of course.
Safe passage Keith. I loved coming by the shop to chat. You are missed.
Best thoughts, energy, wishes to his family and friends.
