Rest in peace Gixxerbill!

I'm sad to say we lost a legend today. (1/3/20)

Bill has a very entertaining guy on MH and a genuinely great dude in real life. I know he was polarizing to some on MH and we all understand. Lol

He rode the out of anything he got a hold of and was a great rider. I'm sure he's up there talking about Democrats while wheelie-ing whatever he can find.

Rest in peace Bill.


I will update everyone with service information when I get it.

If y'all have any photos of you and him that you'd like to share, please do so.

Rest In Peace Bill - You were a good friend. We've ridden 10's of thousand of miles together both on the track and street. If I were to write a book (not likely) the chapter dedicated to you would for sure be the most entertaining - you were a good person and positively - one of a kind.

You had quite an entertaining internet personality - it was a piece of who you were, but didn't show the warm and caring person you were. Hope you're up there terrorizing the mall parking lots of the skies with wheelies and loud music.

You will be greatly missed by all those that knew you.

So sorry to hear this!
Bill was a great person and a heck if a rider! Don't judge him by his online persona, he was funny, smart, a little off base and the kind of person that would give the shirt off his back.
Rest in peace brother.
