Chris Rawson, New Hampshire, now riding across the clouds

Wayne, please pass on the everyone of the East Coast XS1100 association, that Chris Rawson, has taken his last ride here on earth and is now riding the endless highways in the clouds.

After a long battle with pancreatic cancer, he closed his eyes one last time about 11:30 am on Monday February 24 (yesterday)

Chris leaves behind two children, and his parents, all of whom live in England, Chris' childhood home. Also his long time companion, girlfriend and wife, Susann Ranlett-Rawson

Many will remember Chris as a lifetime Yamaha racer, mechanic, builder and always with his next riding adventure in mind. In fact, just a few weeks after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer, Chris insisted on signing on as the "monkey" on a sidecar racing team...and also continued his racing in a classic bike circuit throughout New England and some times New York.

I ask that his passing be passed to everyone on the XS forums....as many knew him well.

At this time final arrangements have not been announced, but it is believed he had asked for very private, family and invited guests services....

Anyone wishing to send condolences or photos they might have of Chris, please forward them through me and I will see to it that his widow Susann gets every one.

Chris, I miss you already, your smiles,your laughter and practical jokes, but more than anything, your integrity and friendship....Ride in peace and warm skies forever, my friend..
