  • TexasMike

    My friend Mike Schniederjan, whom I rode with on many many motorcycle trips, and who lead one of our riding groups on our first ZZR bikes AR rally, passed on this morning from complications of kidney failure, aged 65.

    Here I often referred to him as TexasMike. Leo, TomUhl, Futile, Sacowan, JimmyMac, DWC, Fingers1491, BMWPaul, and many others here knew him and rode with him.

    He had a full life and his health troubles only lasted 2-3 years.

    He is survived by two grown children, several grandchildren, and 3 ex-wives.

    I remember my sense of accomplishment in 2003 the first time I was able to keep up with him on the Talimena Parkway in SE Oklahoma.

    Ride safe, Mike.

      Way too young...

      Godspeed Mike.

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”...Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

            So sorry to hear this Chris.

            I know Mike was having health issues but had no idea they were this bad or had progressed this quickly.

            Mike was truly a nice guy and would do anything to help a person out. I'm sure he will be missed by all that knew him.


            I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

                  I’m very sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. Condolences to his family, his friends and all who knew him. He passed far too young. God Speed.

                              You probably couldn’t recognize me. I was much younger and better looking then!!

                              How are you Jimmy?? I hope all is well!!
