    Had the pleasure of speaking with him last night at a SEVR dinner hosted by Coastal Indian. I am shocked and saddened by the news of George's passing. I hope those he leaves behind take comfort in knowing he left us, doing what he loved, and with his friends. No one gets to choose the time, place and circumstances; but I think we can all agree living life to its fullest until your last breathe is a pretty good way. Thoughts and prayers to those he leaves behind.

    Rode with him on 2 different "V 2 V" rides some summers back. Truly a character. The 13 would of been his supercharged XC pretty sure. Had a bad ass steel frame too.

    Didn't get a chance to meet him as we rode sunup to sundown every day at SEVR (pretty cool he was still riding into his 80's!)... but my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
