Never got a chance to meet you in person, Cy, but it sure felt like we had. See you down the road.....

So sad. Serves as a reminder to us all not to take each for granted. My condolences to the family as well.

Good bye

Although I had never meet CY we had discussed things here in chat several times. The one thing we did share is a love for our bikes and I am sad to know he is gone. To his family I am sorry for their loss as I know the past year had not been easy and for us here at XS11 we have lost a good man and a person with a wealth of knowledge who was always willing to help you find information.
To fix the problem one should not make more assumptions than the minimum needed.

I just saw this thread tonight! I, too, had only heard that he had some broken ribs and such, and thought that he would be home convalescing soon!

My condolences go out to his family and friends. I, too, felt close to CY even though we had not met face to face. He was always willing to help a fellow xsive in any way he could. He will be sorely missed.

Sorry for the loss of Cy

I'm so saddened by this. What a tragedy. My heartfelt condolences go to Cy's family.
Hill? What hill? I didn't see any hill! Why wasn't there a sign? And where are my keys?

Godspeed Cy

Haven't been on in a couple of months, and certainly didn't want to read something like this. Didn't know Cy personaly, but have read many of his posts and feel that I knew him through those. R.I.P. good sir, and my condolences to his family and friends.
