by Staff
I was friends with Larry and will miss him dearly. His contributions to the motorcycling community were countless.

"We have lost one of motorcycling's great advocates and teachers. Larry Grodsky, a dedicated motorcycle safety instructor known to many as the author of the monthly "Stayin' Safe" column in Rider Magazine, was killed
Saturday night. He was riding in the dark and apparently struck a deer.

Below is a short obit from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette."
