Hey 600rr.net family,
Some of you already know this, but 3 months ago this weekend my husband died as a result of injuries from a crash on Ortega Highway while riding.

http://www.sportbikeswest.com/general-sportbike-discussion/4826-my-husband-died-yesterday-ortega.html

I have been working a few angles but thought I would throw it out to you guys & see if you could help me to honor my husband. . . . I am bringing the Colin Edwards Arai helmet he was wearing and would like to have Colin sign it.

In December we spoke to Colin at the Cycle Show in Long Beach about getting his helmet signed. Colin was so sweet and gave us the info and I figured as we got closer to July we would have it signed. However our lives took a turn.

If any of you have a inside track to helping us achive this, please post up! I really would like to have this done in my husband honor.
Thank you!

Sorry to hear that about your husband. Your best bet to get Colin to sign the helmet is to catch him or one of his team members in the paddock. Colin's one of the more fan friendly guys on the tour, you should have no problem seeing him.

Thank you. :)

I have paddock passes but how far into the pits can I get with them?

Yup you'll need a paddock pass but it won't get you in the garage/pit lane. Only way to get in there is if you're invited by a team member. The paddock is the entire area behind the garages.

I'm doing a million searches and sending links to this thread to a million places that might have the ability to let him see it.

It's a long shot but I'm willing to do what I can, no matter how small.

You are a star, thank you !!!! Keep your fingers crossed.

I even contacted Eric Bostrom! Eric replied and may be able to help, but if he is busy and I can't catch up with him on Thursday when I get to the area, I know of no other way. I needed to just keep asking until I can get a solid in to get this done.

Thank you!!!!

Never Mind!
Dawn

I have a few friends working the event! Depending on where they are at I may be able to get you back there to his RV. 2 years ago I got lucky and my X girl friend was Collins umbella girl. I dont think she is doing that this year but I see. I give you an update tomorrow.
