Bigiron

I hope to God I'm wrong, but I kind of doubt it. We've talked about it on here long enough. We've looked. I hate to give a eulogy for a living man, but I hate even more to watch a good one go without getting his due.

BIGIRON was a really nice, helpful guy. He was especially kind to me when I got my KLR. I never met him. He sent some cool stickers to my daughter just because. And a local NRA sticker that is on my guitar as we speak. He was not one for long speeches. His posts were short, helpful, and to the point - with nary a hint of snark.

I hope to hell he's on here in a week giving me a hard time. But I hate to see him not get his due when our other fallen brothers have.

BIGIRON, I hope you're on some adventure. If so, I can't wait to welcome you back. But that's looking unlikely, so I'm glad I knew you. I wish I knew how to get ahold of your people, but I don't.

Honestly, the place ain't the same without you, bud.

I know you're on a good road somewhere.

We've lost some really good people over the last couple of years... I'm hoping they've just got sick of the internet and disconnected, but I suspect your right and there's more to it .

Bigiron was a huge loss, and I still often wonder whatever became of Vatrader? Wherever they are, I hope they are doing well. You kind of feel that you get to know the others on the forum and it sucks when they just vanish.

Yeah. For some reason I think Vatrader will reappear. But it's probably wishful thinking.

And it is weird. With the web you can get pretty close to people and still be pretty far away.
