Kyle and I had some very fierce competition between us at Fast Fridays, neither one wanting to back off the throttle going into 1 after the tapes went up. What a blast to ride with, always a clean racer and wouldn't do you dirty. He always had a smile on his face afterwards and would give me a nod like "dude that was bad-ass!" God bless you brother, I'll miss you! Now get to heaven and win that main!
