Lineage Ride 2019
“Honoring Our Past, Protecting Our Future”
This summer I will travel the American Northwest on a 2-week mission with a team lead by U.S. Navy SEALs, and comprised of Federal Agents, and patriotic American citizens. Though we will see some of the most beautiful scenery that our nation has to offer, and meet amazing people along the way, we will be working to support a cause greater than ourselves.
Our mission is two-fold:
Honoring Our Past: We are taking this opportunity to honor someone in our line (lineage) that contributed to who we are today.
Chris Morgan - Friend and inspiration:
As we move through life, there are rare instances when we are blessed with the knowing someone who is blindly inspirational, someone whose mere presence motivates us to be better people without us even knowing it. Chris Morgan was that person to nearly everyone he crossed paths with. He had an energy that was infectious and more often than not would bring people from all walks of life together to be a part of whatever it was he was doing at that moment. You just wanted to be around Chris and you didn’t know why.
Chris’s friends were his family and he would do absolutely anything for them. While not a man of many words, his actions spoke volumes of his character. If you had a flat tire, Chris would fix it. If you needed a ride, Chris would drop everything and give you a lift to where ever you needed to be. If you were down and out in any way, Chris would do everything and anything in his power to help you. Sometimes to his own detriment. Chris was there for you no matter what.
As selfless as Chris was to his friends and family he was equally as dedicated to his motorcycles and racing. He had a single-track mind when it came to racing. Everything revolved around the next race. Chris often struggled to make ends meet but he would do whatever it took to make it to the next event. To see him race, well, that was something to behold. He rode with absolutely zero fear and total abandon, pushing himself to his limits and more often than not beyond them. There were few times that he wasn’t without some sort of injury and they were always related to racing. But he had no remorse about it and would be back on the bike and launching himself around the track well before his injuries would have allowed any other “normal” human. Chris was no normal human though, he was the epitome of a motocross racer, wanting nothing more after a hair-raising crash than to get back on the bike and get back into the race.
Chris was a force to be reckoned with in life and on the racetrack. He was the life of the party. He was big brute of a man. Chris had a secret though. Unknown to many that knew him, Chris was really just a big softy. While so many knew him as “that crazy motocross guy with the dreads”, a select few new the level of compassion he was capable of. He was without a doubt a protector and was always looking out for those who needed help. He was highly protective of children and they were drawn to him like a big stuffed teddy bear. They looked up to Chris and he always went out of his way to teach and inspire them as only he could. Chris was the epitome of “Able Shepherd”.
Like so many of my heroes, Chris is always with me. Pushing me to be better at whatever I do, reminding me to be selfless and help others, inspiring me to be the best person I can. We love you Chris!
