Yesterday US Highland President Mats Malmberg, COO Chase Bales and Director of Operations Damian Roddich were killed in while returning to Oklahoma in Bales’ Cessna 421. Malmberg had been working for years to bring Highland to the main stage and had finally looked to have perfected the formula for success.

Bales was truly interested in giving the riders what they want and was often found posting and talking with enthusiasts. No doubt these men will be missed. The riders who have been following US Highland know the impact this will have on US Highland and a company poised to change the motorsports industry. Sincerest condolences go out to the families of these men and to US Highland.

    What terrible news! I offer my sincere condolences to the families of these three gentlemen, as well as to the many employees of US Highland that will be affected by their passing. May they rest in peace. God bless you all.

    I was just reading the August issue of Motor Cycle Magazine and go to website to learn more about the Streetfighter and see this news!!! What sad news for their families, their company and for all of us who were so excited to read of their new technology. May God be with all who loved them.
