    I am so sorry to hear of Ardy's passing. She was a wonderful person, my role model, my friend. I'll look for her spirit on the highways and wave as we pass. If we're lucky, she'll ride along with us on our shoulder. I heard you don't have to oil chains in Heaven, Ardys . . . .

    I never had the privilege of meeting Ardys, but, over the years, reading about her accomplishments has been an inspiration to a guy rapidly approaching 70. She will be missed in our community, but her example will live on.

    I had read several posts/articles about Ardys previously but had never had the pleasure to meet her in person. While working the gates for Sedalia last year I noticed a bike coming throught that was loaded down for a long trip and piloted by a lady who really looked the part. I remember asking Kevin Greenwald if that was Ardys Kellerman...."yep..the one and only." Got a chance to stop and say a brief hello. Very neat lady!

    Sympathies to her family.

    God speed Ardys. May the roads be twisty, the skys blue, and you next ride never needs tires or gas. I am glad I got to meet you, and hope maybe I get half as many Smiles as you did.

    Well done.

    Sending good thoughts to her family.

    Is there going to be some memorial service lots of BMW's can attend.

    I am saddened to read this news. Ardys was a remarkable woman and an inspiration to many. I never had the pleasure to meet her but having read Voni Glave's story after they rode their millionth mile together I do believe Ardys lived her life to the fullest and exactly the way she wanted.

    Rest in peace Ardys Kellerman.

    Unhappy

    My condolences to ARDYS family. I first met this rider at last years Georgia Mountain Rally and then again at the Chromeheads gathering during Daytona bike week this year. Sad news indeed. RIP ARDYS

    A wonderful lady. I'm glad to have had the chance to meet her. I remember the picture of her and her daughters last year in Sedalia, in which each daughter was wearing a T-shirt that said, "Mom likes ME best!"

    I was fortunate to meet Ardys at several rallies and she always had that mischevious grin that would light up the whole room. She inspired me to ride far and often- condolences go out to her daughters Sue, Ellen and family.
