man each time i visit this thread it still shocks me.
i bought a pair of teknic boots from kev back in 2006 and chatted with him about our jobs (i am in IT as well) and immediately i was blown away by how intelligent kevin was. he was crazy intelligent, almost abnormal. i disagreed with kevin on a few things but i always respected his opinion because it was straight forward, well thought out, and well presented.
it's a shame someone like kevin was taken so soon ... we all could take a page out of his book and become better people, and riders too.
Reading this really makes me happy. I'm happy to know yet another person is out there that "Got" Kevin.
You'd be happy to know - he would not have wanted you to agree with him. He wanted you to disagree with some facets of nearly anything he said. He would sometimes take an opposing view just to get an intelligent argument started.
He taught me how to look at two sides of a coin, as well as it's edge.
