So here is a thread update for the people who have followed it and its riders.

The Crusher passed away unexpectedly back in December.

https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/lo...350&fhid=25332

I had talked to him a few days before and he was making financial plans for the future. I thought he was in Florida on a vacation.

It was fun to ride with crusher and always interesting.

Wow. That's to bad. He was a good man. First his mom died and then him a few months later. That sucks.

It would be nice if one of you guys post a little something on the Memorial Thread about "Crusher". I know I enjoyed some of his posts and would like to know a little more about him.

He really had a bad time after his mother passed. Without her he was lost and his demons got the best of him.

Rest In Peace Crush. He came by my place a in December to look at my RV for sale. He was gonna hit the road heading for New Mexico or Arizona. Changed his mind and never heard back. I wonder what happened to him.

Oh my goodness this is terrible news! He did seem particularly down on the world, and i never met the guy in person. My condolences to you all who got to ride with him. Very sad news.

So Cathy must be his sister and her friend Eunice Miller was not a fan. How horrible to post such a thing about the deceased. IMG_1137.jpg

He and his sister did not talk for decades until his mother died. Eunice sounds like he has more problems than Bob did.

Bob may have been a bit odd at times because of his illness/meds, but he did have a sportster, was a active member of the xlforum family, lived not to far away and was always ready to ride.
I was a fan.
