Dammit!

That's terrible news, I loved the chances to talk to Bob on the porch at the Maggie Valley Inn as he say with a paperback book nearby.

Thanks for posting this George - such a heartbreaking loss for his family, for us, for all who knew him.

I kick myself at times like this. I didn't know Quinn personally, lost my chance. I believe he was at the RCR IV a year ago which I also attended. I recall greeting George with nothing much more than a head-nod hello in the hallway in the hotel as the riders were arriving. I'm sure Quinn was also nearby. In the frenzy of getting caught up with old friends, we sometimes lose the opportunity to make new ones. Particularly so, if we don't make too many of these events. I missed seeing Paul by a day at this same event too.

So fleeting, these moments.

Glass raised, love sent, Godspeed Quinn.

Damn, just damn. I aways enjoyed seeing and talking to Bob. Last fall, I arrived in Maggie Valley a bit early and stopped at Salty Dog for lunch. No sooner did I order when he walked in. He saw my bike outside and decided to stop for lunch too. The last time I talked to him. My condolences to his Wife & family. Damn.

Bob was usually the first person I saw
at events on this side of the big muddy. Talking
to him was one of the reasons I came.
He will be sorely missed.
