Off to the big racetrack in the sky. A life well lived.

That I don't know. He did have a FB account but at 80 years old, his life had moved away from IH's a fair bit. (From what I understand).
I talk to his brother occasionally (who's Older) but he doesn't play on here (I'm pretty sure). Despite the fact he still has a LOT of Harley stuff. All old junk, no one wants anymore.

Just seems a shame you can be at the pinnacle and after a few years, no one remembers.
