I met Jim when attending the Toronto motorcycle show a few years back, due to an introduction by Phil, they were very long time good friends, and I was just getting into the XS world. Following that I was fortunate to share some online chats with Jim about guitars and his collection.

Those brief encounters were enough to enlighten me about his good nature.

Phil has shared quite a few good stories with me about Jim, and while visting Marty A recently after VYR 2019, there was endearing tales told about Jim at the rallies, and one of Marty's attempt to have him lead a ride

Seems he made good friends everywhere, whether by brief encounter or not.

I am thankful to have met him, and I really hope his spirit is kept alive with stories from those who knew him well.
