So sorry to hear this. Seeing his "smiley" friend in Helen this spring brought a smile to my face.

Deepest sympathy to family and friends.

Sad news indeed. I never met Quinn / Bob but I enjoyed his wit first hand when he made this priceless comment about Paul (Pablo) Mihalka:

I hope that they are riding together on a couple of Beemers.

That is sooo sad, I really enjoyed bob's company. He will be missed.

Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting, WOW, What a ride!

Moderators move to where is appropriate


A sad loss for riders and esp. those of us who read his many posts at this forum.

When available, is there anything riders can learn from a fuller description of this collision?

For those that new Quinn, I talked to his wife and son at the visitation yesterday, they both commented on the outpouring of wonderful comments they read on the board.
Both seemed very happy that he had this community as friends.
