Wow, very sad news... I recall the early days of "Cary's RT" forum, it was a goldmine of friends and tech info .. My condolences to his family

We bought our first BMW's in 2000 and found this forum and joined a year later. I even spoke to Cary at one time telling him I loved the BMWRT shirts I ordered and I would be sure to wear them on the Edelweiss trip that year. He was so nice to speak to.

Thanks Cary for creating a place where this greenhorn BMW owner got a whole lot of good advice, made friends and found a lot of enjoyment.

Thanks to those who continue what he started.

This is indeed sad news. What Cary started and others have continued is still my favorite place online.
He even dug up an original BMWRT sticker for me when I visited his dealership in Marin years ago.

My condolences to his friends and family.

Cary was a great man with a huge heart and audacious dreams.

This whole thing started because Cary was on a rented Harley on a ride in Colorado with his Dad and they were passed by an R1100RT going the other way. Everything else is, as they say, history.

He always had a smile and a hug ready and waiting. I'm humbled to have known him, ridden with him, and called him a friend.

The world will be a little bit darker place without him.

I am heartbroken. Cary was a friend. He was the person with the vision to create this place. He was a BMW dealer. He was a generous and giving soul. I stayed at his place several times over the years, and he was the most gracious host.

Cary had left for Australia some time ago, to see his Mom and to work over there. He had a good job, and had a new life and love. I'm grateful he didn't suffer. But we who knew him will miss him and his joyous ways.

Godspeed my friend.


Cary, Gleno, Rodger, Paul,
Godspeed, my brothers.
We will never forget you.

We never met him but am grateful for what he started. This board and the people on it have enriched our lives tenfold. Thank you Mr. Cary for starting it and thank you to the people that still maintain it. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Sad news indeed. I had lost track of him the past few years, but still sorry to hear this news.

Condolences to his close friends and family, and condolences to all of us for this loss.

Yes, I'll go for a ride in his name - that's what I often do when sad or depressed anyway - and I'll wear my Marin BMW T-shirt (I have three).

Never met him but had plans to ride to Marin BMW. Dealer closed before I could do that. IIRC, his dealership was a recession victim. RIP.
