"We are honored that his family asked us to take his ashes and spread them in some of his favorite riding areas in West Virginia, they said he often spoke fondly about those rides. We are also going to keep a very small vial of Dale’s ashes with us on our motorcycle so he can continue to be with us on our motorcycling adventures."!/TributeWall
