I received a PM from RicK G on K100 forum on May 3rd saying Drake dropped off the site and has been gone a long time. He's also missing from MotoBrick and here.



He has ALWAYS returned my phone calls...this time nothing after 3 attempts.

He's not returning emails or PM's either.

I am now very concerned about Drake.


FYI Drake is a hard core alcoholic. I know this from spending time in his company. I just thought he was in the bottle so deep he didn't know what was going on.

He lost his father last year and hasn't been the same since.



Is there anyone that knows what's going on or who is close enough to the PNW that could check up on him?

Rydor, this is a serious issue!

I think with your superior Duck wispering ability, you should be making some duck calls to find the missing Drake!

I paid a flock of mallards some pork rinds and pita bread for this information. Seems legit.

Thank you. I've left messages on both his cell and home...no joy.

I live three and half miles away, having been to his house to pick up purchased parts, if no electronic means raises a response I'm happy to drop a note off at his house. He values his privacy so I'm disinclined to stop by and knock without calling first. Gwen, send me a pm for my cell number if you want.

Sending Positive waves and thoughts. Drake is a valued member of this community for more than one reason.

I don't remember which board I was on (MOA I think) but someone on there said that he had actually picked up and moved away. Totally unsubstantiated.

He had always gotten back to me on parts purchases and questions.

Status: Alive and well.

Decided to go "off the grid" for a while and take a hiatus from my K bike OCD.

I shall return.

Thank you my friend.

Be well.

You have been missed.

Just pitching you shit, OTG.

I do hope that someday our paths will cross and we can have a beer together.
