I was looking for another post, and stumbled across the thread on Jim's illness earlier this year, back in June. Here's his last post on Badweb:

Hey guys and gals!!!!!!
Thought I'd take a moment to just simply say thank you. I honestly have lost the month of June, the first 6 of this ordeal gone completely to the wind. The drugs the ICU had me had a very blurry line betweeen reality and the last seconds before throwing in the towel. I had hallucinations that will take days to explain. One thing I know is there was always a halo around those who walked into my room, that may have been the difference. BadWeb has always been supportive of myself and my family, as well as any person in need, and that alone is one of the many reasons I will always as active as time allows. I'd like to say thank you to everyone, Thank You
On another silly side note, it's ironic that the Blue donor bike in the pictures above that we took the parts "off" of, is now one of the Buells parked in the shop!!!! Slightly massaged by some goodies from KD Fab though!!!!

Sad to say, we won't be able to make it to the visitation tonight. Instead, we're heading up to the hills as planned. I think I'll build a fire in the grill tonight, have a few cold ones and remember all the nice rides and times I shared with Jim. He was one fine dude, and will be missed dearly.

Wow. Hits home at the visitation. Great turnout to send Jim off. Saw Spike, Mike the bike, Branken, Pete, Aaron and many other of Jim's friends and family, Jim's Buell CR was on display with track pics . Jim was laid out in a Buell knit hat and leather jacket. Ready to ride. Ride well Jim! You are missed!
