It's been a long time since I have posted here... but, knowing many are still around - you will want to know that I received word that Cary Littlell passed away late last week. Most know that was started by Cary back in 2000, some of you have been here since then, including the very first Tech Days in his garage (think there were 8 of us), and it quickly grew into an awesome community of riders learning from each other and enjoying great rides.

My understanding is that he passed in his sleep, they suspect it was a heart attack and that it was peaceful.

It's certainly a lesson that life is short and you should enjoy each moment that comes your way. Cary is the person that got me into riding motorcycles many years ago and our friendship has gone waaaaay back in time through loads of good and bad times for us both. He will be missed... so, go find a twisty road this weekend and toast a glass (or bottle) of Grey Goose (his fav) to his honor.

I'm in shock.

Life is indeed precious.

Thank you for letting us know, Kris.

Thanks for letting us know, Kris. Condolences to family and close friends of Cary.

If Cary had not had the foresight to start and grow this Board we BMW riders all over the globe would be the poorer. I have not missed a day here since signing up around 2000.

Yes, wife and I will be taking your advice and hitting some km's and curves tomorrow in rememberance of Cary!

Ugh. He was my dealer before I came here. A true friend, great man, and humble guy.

Rest in Peace, Cary.

Sorry to hear. frown I wish I could have met him, no doubt would have thanked him for many years of smiles.

Condolences to family and friends.

My heart is aching with this loss for all of us. I am so honored to have been part of his legacy here. He was such a sweetheart.

Kris, I send you the warmest of hugs possible and lots of love.

Healing wishes for all of his friends and family.

I'm saddened beyond words.

Let's remember that none of this would have happened without him. Cary started this community, which has become something truly remarkable. It's brought together a group of people whose affinity for a motorcycle is transcended by our bonds to one another.

We will miss you, Cary.

Kris, for some reason I am not allowed to post on your thread about Cary.
Very sad to get this news, he was a great guy. Along with many others I met him at the first unrally and he became a good friend. Have missed your postings as well.

Best to you.

What are you talking about Marty? A link would probably clear it up.
