    I know nothing about that, any relevant linkage?
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    If you can call a single bike accident at 10:30 in the am "freak".

    Apparently Li and Dreer were good friends, and Li owned a lot of Kenny's VR handiwork.

    here is a lit bit of interesting info for you,

    the vincents were designed by James Parker, who designed the GTS1000 yamaha.



    By the way, if you haven't figured it out yet, Bernard Li was the owner of Eagle One Car Care Products.

    http://memorialwebsites.legacy.com/b...age.aspx?mod=2

    Bernard Li (62), founder of Eagle One Car Care Products, tragically passed away Saturday May 3rd as a result of injuries received in a single motorcycle accident on Highway 260, just outside of Springerville Arizona. Springerville is near Eager Arizona, in the Eastern Arizona area. The accident happened at approximately 10:30 Saturday morning. The cause of the accident is unknown and there were no witnesses.

    Barney, to his friends, was a life time motorcycle enthusiast and entrepreneur. In addition to his highly successful Eagle One Company, Barney also created Wheels of Fortune Motorcycles, a Yamaha dealership in Carson, California. His dream was to recreate the Vincent Motorcycle brand and he had developed several exciting prototypes of the reincarnated icon.



    Mr. Li is survived by his wife Elizabeth, his two sons Justin and Darren, his daughter Nikki and brother Jerry.



    Gary Bryson, a long time friend of Barney’s was also on the ride. He said, “We don’t know the cause of the accident, but we do know that he was doing what he loved to do and that’s ride his Motorcycles”. Barney was an experienced rider, having ridden motorcycles since his college days. We may never know what caused this tragedy, but we know he will be missed by his friends and family, as well as his many business associates.



    The memorial services for Bernard Li will be held on Thursday, May 8th at the El Camino Memorial and Mortuary. The service will begin at 1:00 and a viewing will be held prior to the service at 12:30.
