Oh man. I have been a long time lurker here and just recently a member. I didn't know Jimbo personally but from what I have seen here and heard from all of you folks this is a great loss for the community.

May your eyes shine down on us and watch over your brothers and sisters as they ride. R.I.P. brother Jimbo.
