I'm having a difficult time understanding why such a gentle person must suffer. :(

Since I first hear the news I've been thinking of him on my drive back home. The time I've spent with him conversations. I am saddened buy this but will keep thinking of the man I know.

The one thing that reminds me of gene is that he wore camo paints alot when I saw him, for that I am tyeing a camo banda on my bike to remind me of him. If some one asks about it I will just tell them all I know of gene.

Let me tell you about this pic. Yeah...that's me on the right. :) My introduction to Gene was at a TOTT Rally in Green Bay (where this pic was taken). His bike was parked right behind mine...I was digging for something in the saddlebags, he was wanting to getting the packing out of his mufflers. Baffles were stuck and he wasn't able to so he fires the bike up and the hits the throttle and the baffles and packing when flying out the mufflers, landing a few feet behind the bike! I will NEVER forget the look of absolute astonishment that went across his face and the quiet "well THAT did something"!! To this day I still smile whenever I think of it. :D

May God take him into his embrace, erasing all suffering.

noone could meet gene without falling in love with him - his enthusiasm for life and for riding made everything around him just a little more wild and exciting..







^^ all 3 of these were taken within 5mins of me first meeting him. there's just something irresistible about that man!

love and karma being sent to gene, chom, logan, and all of the countless others whom this great man touched with his warmth, humour and zest for life..

cheers!

I too have not had the chance to meet this wonderful man in person. Thank You all for the pics and vids. Prayers and Karma to an Ivy Division Brother (albeit an entirely different era), his Family and great circle of friends.

There is no finer person to walk the face of this planet that Geno. I was fortunate enough to bunk and ride with him at ToTT2 and even stay at his home one night also. I've never met anyone who embraced life as much as he did and vowed to live it to the fullest each and every day. I'm honored and proud to call him my friend and I'm so glad God gave him to us to walk this planet with us and share him with us.
