    Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to let everyone know that my Brother Michael Landis that attended the 2012 Tail of the Dragon with me just passed away on June 28th. As many of you know he was fighting brain cancer for the past year and a half. I want to thank all of you for such a great time and welcoming us in to this event. This was surely the highlight of Mikes year! He constantly talked about the trip to his friends and family. With all that he was going through, that week made his life a little happier and more enjoyable and I cant thank everyone enough for that!! I thank God that I had this time to spend with him before he left us! This event will take on a whole new meaning for me in the years to come. Thanks again to all for your support, prayers, and helping to make Mikes life a little more fun and enjoyable for him!

    MICHAEL ANTHONY LANDIS SR.
    SEPTEMBER 29, 1979-JUNE 28, 2012

    OMG, that is terrible. I remember when we stopped on the Cherohala, he came to me and said "Can you make your exhaust a little quieter" and we laughed about it. So sorry for your loss.
