Default Allthingsmoto.com

As we approch the 5th race of the GMB we need to remember why this site was created. It was not created by just one guy. Yes it was started by one man,Known as Tyler. He wanted a site where we could carry on the friendships we made during the GMB 1. He called on the group known later as the band of brothers.
It was stated during the early days that friendships(family) is what the site should be about. Building relationships and sharing what little knowledge we gain through riding and standing by our friends through thick and thin. Doing the right thing as a honor to Garrett Berg.
I would like to say this site has grown above what we thought it would be. There is a few of us Band of Brothers who are just members now and that is find. Things grow in ways that a family branches out.
But some of us ....including me, needs to check our pride at times and forgive and forget. To be the 1st to extend the hand to a friend or foe that has in our eyes has crossed an invisable line. That my friends is what I know Garrett would do. Garrett has taught us life is short and we should honor and love those around us while we have the chance. What if this is the last night the other person you care about is here on earth. I ask each of you if your life is better today than what it was yesterday. If its not, call the person and restart the friendship again. Be the one who extends the hand 1st and saids I'm sorry, Lets start over. Life is over in a blink of an eye. I know I don't want to miss a chance to share good times with the people Ive met because of ATM.
Lets keep ATM running for the reason it was started. In the spirit of Love, because of one young mans life example to others. So I will ask all of you this in ending.............Do you want to miss out on growing in spirit or having the chance to grow in love......not me. I'll see my brothers and sisters at the GMB V...................ROOST ON

Mark,

As always, you have said it all.

Yes, I get excited when I think about getting together with my A.T.M. family this October. But keeping things into perspective is what impacted me the most on my first trip to Splendora. That impact is what draws me back every year.

Family means you can forget lots of indiscretions. GMB is and always will be about family.

Macho, you are a true friend. I know we both planned on being at the GMB...but you have a way of making hard headed people like me stop and think.

See you guys at the GMB. We will laugh, we will cry and as always...we will become better people.

Thank you Garrett for the inspiration. Thank you Macho for reminding us all.

-B

All I can say is I totally agree. ATM is 100% about the Remembering Those Who Rode Memorial Race, and honoring the memory of GMB. With that comes many opportunities for reflection and to put life's challenges into perspective. We are all lucky to be a part of it.

Thanks, Macho.

Bravo!! This is a great place and family. I have been here for a little over three years now, if I count right. I wish I could be at GMBV but because of work and some other reasons I cant be there in body, but will be in spirit. I have met many great friends here and god bless you all.
Have a great time at GMB V.

Nice job Macho, sometimes we need a little reminder of what its all about. In the grind of everyday life we often overlook the bigger picture, and thats a shame. Cant wait to meet everyone in 2 weeks...I sure hope Im worthy!
