Motorcycle Legend. Racer. Mechanic. Hero. Ron Reyers. RIP.
I sure enough miss this guy…
He was meaner than a snake and sweet like salted butter. My father in law. Ron Reyers. Motorsickle racer and artful mechanic. Hard man and Catcher in the Rye. Made the most amazing motorcycle trailer in the history of mankind. Built useful and bulletproof furniture that still graces my home. Grandpa, father, husband and working man.
Requiem for the Croppies
Terraced thousands died, shaking scythes at cannon.
The hillside blushed, soaked in our broken wave.
They buried us without shroud or coffin
And in August… the barley grew up out of our grave.
