Dick Blom from Rider magazine; is he still around?
« on: June 26, 2017, 12:51:25 AM »
I used to love reading Dick Bloms motorcycle articles in Rider magazine back in the 70s. Does anybody know is he still around? And if so I'd like to contact him and give him a big "thank you" for his great articles.

Has anybody heard from him lately or has he passed on?

You are lamenting articles from 40 some years ago...

Not quite, his touring book came out here in 1981. Just want to know if he's still riding or writing, that's all

 I haven't seen anything from him in probably 20 years , or more .
