I met him standing outside of Motorcycles Unlimited, in full leathers on a hot, summer day waiting on a friend's bike(for what reason I can't recall.) We went to have lunch together at jack in the box and began our chatting then.

Later that day we rode the forest on a casual ride and I had to break off to return for church in the afternoon as they continued on. That night was a hard night for me emotionally and from there on he was an encourager for me and we found alot we had in common in our pasts and the way we think too.

For all of you that keep to yourselves at a meet and greet or dont open up when out riding w others, you're missing out on alot of cool people. It takes all types and we have them all here.

I met Tim's daughter at TWS (Texas World Speedway) last weekend. When he introduced us, I could tell she was scared of me, big and towering her in my full suit and squeeky boots. I must have looked monsterous sweating all over the place. She shylee hid and meandered behind and under his legs. She had her face painted like a cat, and it was the cutest thing. From the way she clutched behind his knee I could see how they had a bond only daughter and father could have shared. I'm wiping the tears from the keyboard trying to compose the picture in my mind. The picture of Tim's contageous smile when he said her name. Thanks for the good times friend.

The first time I met Tim was at Motorcycles Unlimited. I was getting a new back tire and he was buying a pair of those fieldsheer denim riding pants. He asked me if I was planning on riding today. Caligonetx was there too.

I said yea, I planned on riding through the forest but wasnt sure how long it would take Patrick to finish my bike. He graciously waited for me and the three of us took off.

Matt broke off in Richards and Tim and I had a blast continuing on! We rode to yankees, just the 2 of us. We drank cold tea, chatted up each other about lifes blessings and tribulations. We talked about our children. I knew then, that he was one of the genuine guys and someone I should stick close to.

We rode back down cutting it up all the way back. I led up and he led down. The man could ride! He broke off at the beltway and I went on home down 45. Since then I have always looked for him. We rode together often as of late. And hung out at a meet and greet or two.

Always a stickler for gear and riding under control it was a pure pleasure riding with him.

We always joked about the sound of the 1000cc's and up and how harmonical they can be. Everyone knows I call riding 'therapy' well we discussed this whole song and changed some of it to make it work for a biker's perspective. We could be goofy sometimes and once we started laughing chuckles didnt end. Seemed suited to have it here.

The old school SMR rides. Before all the "drama." Man what a great rider, smooth, and level headed.

even old school before your time Tim was a sound rider and one of the most responsible guys I rode with. He sure did have a thing for those naked bikes (not sure why), but then I got all happy when he picked up the ZX-12. Definitely not the most outgoing in the group, but always helpful and super nice. This is still very surreal.

We were all out at the Tilted Kilt a few weeks back havin a laugh. And as always he had a big smile on his face. By the end of the night he had an even bigger grin on his face lol, we all did some laughing for sure. I met his little princess last weekend at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and Tim asked could he take a picture of her on me bike. I hope that little Anna can find comfort in reading all these great post about her dad.

I don't have many pics. But more stories than time or space would allow.

The trip to the 3 Sisters, he was so frustrated because it was his first chance.. and his bike crapped out. Then John was so gracious to loan him the R6 and we got another leak. It was so funny to listen to Tim telling me "I'm not calling him, you call him, he'll kill me"

Another time long time back, him and another of my adopted kids went out playing in Tim's 93 Z28 and they hit the nitrous at idle and blew the intake off.. I get this phone call "uhhmm my car won't start.. heard a pop and dunno" and yes, they were both a little lit that night...

The last NE group ride we did with Brandon, Tim grinning when he talked about following Nox on the roads he didn't know and saying "holy he's fast"

What will suck the most is the next time I go for a ride and look in the mirror and don't see that green thing. He would never lead, always said he would rather follow. It's still amazing to me how much his riding had progressed in the past couple years. When we went to get the ZRX he made me ride it because he had been off bikes for a while and was never much good at turning corners....

Here's his Rex, before he went crazy swapping parts, and his 93 Z28. He bought my 68 Camaro to help me thru a tough financial time and was in the process of putting his blown, nitroused 383 in it...
