Maybe sad to think about it after his passing but i wonder what his wife did with his GT stuff and the 550 he was working on . It would be a shame if it sat in the garage and wasted away after he put all the work into it .

I have wondered the same. Maybe his son will do something with the bikes.

Its sad to say but we have lost another of the groups riders , Eric Vonwiller passed away on Oct 16th from advanced cancer . This has taken me by total shock as he never said anything to me about being treated for cancer . So sad also is he had been married just months and his wife also was being treated for cancer and she too passed away from it on Oct 25th :cry: You will be missed Eric .

Looks like Coyote’s GS1000 is now for sale at a local dealership.
He listed it for sale on our forum in this topic: http://www.suzuki2strokes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9477
Dealer’s Cycle Trader listing: http://www.cycletrader.com/dealers/Brookside-Motorcycle-Company-2851116/listing/1978-Suzuki-GS1000-119439513

I rode RedZone to the Cafe Racer Magazine Reader’s Ride-In Bike Show.
It was well received — there is a good pic of it in the magazine’s October/November issue.
Forum topic on the show: http://www.suzuki2strokes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=12472

It just goes to show that we shouldn't put things off until tomorrow, next week, month or year as we just don't know what the big guy upstairs has got planned for us.

Hopefully, despite my past life, I'm currently under his radar. Hopefully.

I knew that Coyote Chris was getting older and maybe not in great health and his passing was sad and he'll be missed. Eric V's passing really just hit me in the face like running into a pole. I had no idea. He always looked shall we say fuller figured and healthy. and his wife a week later. I am lost for words.

They both contributed a lot to this community and every other they were involved in.

It's a good reminder to live each day like it''s your last, because some day it will be.

While doing some research I happened across a post about Coyote on ozebook.com. Reposted here for those who fondly remember him.
