Not much to be said that has not already been said, so all I can say is Wow.

I, like alot of others, made lots of mistakes when I first came on board, and Doug would climb into my shit. That was his job. But when I asked for advice, he was more than happy to be of service.

I remember sending him a PM after somebody threw a temper tantrum and told him as "point man" he to take some unnecessary abuse. He told me that some people didn't like it when they couldn't use this site as their own personal romper room, but that wasn't its purpose and he was going to make sure that it didn't happen. He loved this site.

I agree with Pete, I also knew he was goin' threw some hard times, and maybe we could pass the hat. I am out on disability again myself, but I could come up a little something.

The world will be a lesser place with Dougs passing......

Respectfully, Hank

Damn, I had no idea he was ill.

I post here a lot less than I lurk, and usually only post to ask FNG dumbass questions.

Which Dragon was kind enough to PM me with answers for on occasion.

We also PM'd back and forth a bit on some OT (philosophical/political/whatever) stuff; he turned me on to some reading that has had an impact on me.

When it's my turn to follow, I think I'll hit him with some ironhead sportster questions, just on general principle.

R.I.P. Doug
True words

He spanked me a couple of times, but also was there more often.
I am truly sorry to hear of his passing, and heart felt condolences to his family.

Well, Me and Mr Dragon, we would just circle each other and growl, He would get on my case about stupid stuff, Some times he might be off his meds, other time...who knows.

But I respect that Ryan had him to keep this site running......... I do not know what I would do if it went away.

So May Dragon Have many Rides in the after life, and Ryan......Keep up the good work, Same for the Jajopy and now Ford barn as well..........

...................Respectfully.... Destralo Origanal Roach.

Thats a whole lot of history taken to a better place, I don't for sure but, his knowledge and patients with the miscreants on this forum will make us all a little bit better wrenches, riders and people. Ride in Peace Brother Dragon.

i admit that Dragon rubbed me the wrong way from time to time, but he really gave this place alot of energy, with his own best intensions, and it certainly won't be the same without him. i feel like there's an empty place in the JJ now and i know he will be missed.

I only knew him from here but he was the first one to chime in when I had a question.
Like it or not he kept all of us chuckle heads from turning the board into a personal bitch fest. Sure he pissed some people off but don't we all. You can't deny his passion or his knowledge.
Thanks Dragon.

I have nothing to add that hasn't already been said - R.I.P Dragon

As lurkingclass said - is there anything that we can do to set up a fund for his mother? I, for one, would be happy to contribute.

I just recently got to know him here. He was very supportive with our efforts in regards to the English Don benefit (DeLIVERance). I too knew he was sick, but I didn't know how sick he was.

I'm certain it's safe to say that he is resting in peace now.

God Speed Dragon

I got one thing that wasn't posted yet. Sure, he had knowledge... We all have some. But what would get me was how he wouldn't supply one line answers. Yet he would dig up PDF's, things with arrows, obscure JPG's, links to things all over the world, manuals.

Oh, and that yellow snake photo in question.. I feel like it was in the Horse some years ago.
