Another Great Young person....gone to a better place!
I didn't have the privilage that several of you did in riding with him....but his Sportster was one of the absolute best looking bikes on here.

He will indeed be missed.
God Bless his family and friends

RIP Johnny.

I was fortunate enough to meet him. Although I never had the opportunity to ride with him, the spirit lives on. His pipes from his sporty now grace mine.

Condolenses to the family.

After a few months away from XLF, I am truly saddened to read about this loss. Best wishes to his family...

I just now found out when I noticed RIP JohnnyG in a signature. Wow! Never knew the man, personally, but enjoyed his posts a lot. Having read the many testimonials, I am assured that my life would be brighter still had I made his acquaintance.

Rest in peace, Johnny.

Kim
