I forget riskis relationship status, Im hoping some one is keeping his dog in the family? Didnt he have a pit??
My sister and I are taking care of Diesel (his pup). We just had to take his dog in for surgery. He tore his tendon in his back leg. $4300 later he should be back to 90% soon.

Thanks everyone, it is very hard as we lived together and all of his stuff is here.

As far as parts I need for it...with just looking at it I know I need
All plastics
Headlight housing
rear pegs
rear brake resivour
undertray/battery tray
lock with cables for the trunk

I think I will need a new frame too. One of the mounts for the subframe (left lower) broke off.

I will take some pics of the bike and its current state and post them up.

Again thank you all!!! It makes things a little easier seeing that he was liked by and helped so many!

A great pic thanks for sharing it he loved his toys,what will happen to his vett if i am not being to personal.?
Actually the vette is mine. He did help me work on it, and was proud of it as if it was his. Dont worry about asking questions, I dont mind at all. He had his 03 jaguar s type r, his 02 gsxr, and a 97 tbird. He did love everything motorsports.

Im going to post the parts needed on my trackday org forum and try to see what they have. If I find some stuff there will be no rush in getting it I dont want you to feel obligated to get it or get it in a hurry at all. I just wanna try and help in anyway I can.

A link to all his threads i always liked reading he had a true need for speed..:thumbup:

http://www.gsxr.com/search.php?searchid=2173446
That link didnt work OIF but all any one has to do is click on his user name, view his user profile and then click on the all posts by or threads started by link.

This will work as long as his username is still active. I doubt any one will be killing that name any time soon if at all.

thanks for being open and letting all of us know whats going on, i grew up 4 miles from byron drag way and my parents still live there.. riski had my parents number n address if he ever needed a trailer or tools or whatever... i just realized from a few posts up that riskistang wont be signing on anymore...

I feel honored to be RISKI's friend and feel like there is a lot of knowledge we will all miss out on
