Tim Ferry runs Motoman393 decals at Atlanta

     

To all,
I was successful in geting the Motoman 393 decals to the Yamaha USA semi. A manager took them from me and asked John and I to stay in the area. Tim's wife came out and thanked me for the decals and asked that we wait for awhile longer. After the second practice Mrs. Ferry, Her mom and dad and Tim's mom and brother came to us and thanked us for getting the stickers to them. Tim's wife showed us Tim's helmet with the decal on it and John took a picture if her holding it along with the family members there. They were very gracious and were most concerned about the Berg's and how they were doing. They all asked me to pass along that they are praying for the Berg's and wish them the bestT tim and his wife and Broc Sellards autographed a GMB shirt for the Bergs which I am forwarding to them this week.

The Yamaha staff and Tim's wife and family were so nice and were concerned about Garrett's memory and the Bergs that I was hard pressed to keep my composure. These people are really busy right before a race but they took the time to speak to John and me. The family members were warm and friendly to John and me, and made us feel comfortable talking with them, as did the team Yamaha official that started the whole thing.

I want to thank Timmy, his lovely and gracious wife, her parents, Tim's mother and his brother for the effort they put forth to display the Motoman 393 decals at Atlanta.

Respectfully,
Bill

Default My Thoughts - Tim Ferry Sporting MM393

Brothers,
This is awesome. Bill, what can I say - a heart felt thanks to you and John. This fulfilled a dream of Garrett - to meet and ride with Tim Ferry, his Hero.

Those at the race remember, the hora or spiritual sensing sometime during the Memorial Race. Many of us felt, or sensed "My Son" as we rode. I long for this "feeling" everytime I ride. It is really hard to put in words, what this means.

I just hope that Tim Ferry has a safe season and that "this season" provides Tim with the "Spirit of Motoman 393" as he ride towards the "Podium."

I anxiously wait to meet and cheer Tim Ferry on towards VICTORY in Supercross- Houston 2003! The year "My Son" rides with Tim Ferry!!!

:

My heart felt THANKS to the Tim Ferry Family and Yamaha Corporate Racing Team for their concern and willingness to fulfill the dream of my Son, Garrett Michael Berg "Motoman 393"

Picture of Ferry's helmet

Please bear with me. We got the photographs and disc back this evening. We have one picture of Timmy's family holding his helmet with the decal visable (it is small) and I will work on posting it as quickly as I can.

This is absolutely awesome. I didn't know Garrett at all, and all I can gleem is that he must have been a very special young man.

I think it is absolutely awesome what all of you do in his memory.

Memorial Stickers

To All,
I am currently gathering what excess stickers were available from the original distribution. I am also having 1000 more made locally. When I get these made I will accept addresses for giving out these stickers on a first come, first served basis, only. Do not send addresses now. I already have a large backlog from last weekend's request and I need to fill these first. Thanks to all that have expressed honor for Garrett's memory.

Bill

To All,
I will make sure all of y'all get stickers that want them. I have found a family and a home here. I still love Thumper Talk, but you people are special to me. Count on me for help no matter what.

Unhappy Pictures

I cannot get the image to a site to be posted. I was using Ego but he isn't posting right now and I do not want to impose on anyone. I am not really happy with the quality or the size of the shot either. I will try to find a host this weekend if I do not blow up any 125 top ends and have to spend my waking hours ordering parts and rebuilding my son's bike where I screw something up.
