Default RIP Doug "Dragon". Ride free Brother.

Englishman just posted on The Horse board that Doug has left us. I know that some here had problems with him, and some just liked to poke at him from time to time, but I'd like to believe that everyone respected him and his efforts to keep us in line here. I did several deals with him and had quite a few off board conversations, and I've never dealt with a more upstanding individual.

Looks like his pain is finally gone,

Ride free, Brother,
Ride free.

I knew he was sick, but I didn't know how sick.

Same here, many good deals & phone calls...hell my wife even got me some Avons from him for my birthday.
Damn.

Dragon was one in a million. He is one of the main reasons I got into building, (long story).

We just lost a strait shooter & a MASS of knowledge that will never be again.

Damn it.

I can't believe that. I remember getting slammed by Dragon a few times when I was a new member on the board (and rightfully so, since I had failed to take the time to learn some of the Board rules and nuances), but I grew to really enjoy his comments, barbs, and insights. We ended up corresponding a fair bit back and forth by IM about choppers, the internet, and life in the Florida Panhandle (he was a lifelong resident of Tallahassee, near where I went through the USN Diving School and later the EOD school.)

He will be missed.

I have only been on here since the Spring of this year, but, quickly learned to appreciate his terse comments and greatly respected his obvious wisdom. I never got to see the man, so if it is not in poor taste or a violation of the forum rules, would someone mind posting a pic of Dragon with one of his rides. I would really like to put a face to the name.

Man, what a loss. He had an absolutely amazing knowledge of both American and English bikes and was quick to help out. He was very quick to help me with an issue in a private conversation, and never seemed to mind my dumb questions.
