Ride On, Chris Kallfelz (1962-2023)
Some thoughts on the passing of a beloved MO contributor
Longtime MO readers will remember Chris Kallfelz’ Head Shake column that ran for over four years on Motorcycle.com from 2014-2018. A thoughtful man with wide-ranging motorcycling experience, Chris never failed to both provoke reflection and laughter simultaneously. Unfortunately, he succumbed to cancer a week ago today. For those of us who were friends with him on social media, he handled his failing health with his usual mix of practicality, honesty, and good humor. I feel strange sitting here teary-eyed mourning the loss of a man I never met in person but had a relationship with through his words. So, rather than spend a lot of time describing the Chris that we MOrons knew, I’ll just let him tell you himself.
