Bob Budschat

I was absolutely bummed to hear of Bob Budschat's passing last night. I had really hoped to meet him. Bob was an incredibly important piece of Pacific Northwestern motorcycle history. Bob remained a competitive racer for decades, even while raising a family, working a day job at Dewey's Cycle and eventually opening the first Ducati (Norton, Velocette) dealership in Seattle. Godspeed Bob, you will be missed.

I hope Bob Budschat, Red Farwell, Cliff Stering and Bernard Coski are tearing it up in heaven somewhere. If they are I eventually want a ticket.
