Don "Kowboy" Keil, 1941 to 2003


Don died in a motorcycle accident on his KRS in the mountains of Riverside County in the vicinity of Idyllwild, CA. The highway patrol determined that he hit a gravel patch and went down, sliding into a tree at the road's edge. He was thought to have died very quickly.


After going through a couple of years of major depression, he found his way back to motorcycling. According to his wife Marilynn, Motorcycling brought Don out of his depression and gave her back the Don she knew. When she spoke to us of his death, she said she wouldn't trade his recent happiness for anything in the world. Marilynn was kind enough to give us some of Don's ashes so that we could take him on the rides he had planned for that year. Don' ashes are scattered in Torrey, Utah, in the Pecos River and in Eureka Springs, AR at the site of Unrally II.
