I hadn’t put this up yet but I guess it’s time so here it goes....May7 I had a very substantial heart attack and I was in peace arch hospital for 8 days being given fantastic care and every test know to man. It turns out I have a weak heart. All things considered my wife Jeanine Burns and I have mostly made it thru the first part of this unnerving journey . She is my absolute rock and love of my life. I am now home and on the road to my recovery. It’s been so incredible for me to see my family and friends come to our aid and bringing the love and selflessness , doing it all and going above and beyond for us. (Y’all know who you are) I love you all deeply!!!!!! At this point I’ll update when I can and see you all soon!

Cheers Rick

To add to this we will be doing a fundraiser for Rick he will be off work and the Blue Voodoo will have friends fill in for Rick till he’s ready to ride again...stay tuned for the dates Thanks and send Rick some love Cheers
