Wow - I am floored right now - There is still a big long scrape in one of the corners at the RA Kart Track where he laid down his Husky - We always joked as we ran thru that turn and said "In Johnny Corner"

Wow - Damn.....

Johnny was one of the nicest people I've met from here, he had a great heart and was always smiling and laughing.

I saw him many times last year when I stopped in at Willy World and we always chatted for a bit. He was also a great rider and I enjoyed every ride I was on with him.


RIP Johnny

He rode the tits off that ZX 10 of his

One of my first ever CLSB group rides (Chills Led, 2005) he was railing his SuMo in the front of the group and I remember thinking how smooth and cool he looked on that thing

This is one of the rides that I organized where he was in it. Funny story about this pic. Moments after we docked and were getting off, he was in front of me, stalled, and I rear ended him. I got a little crack on my fairing and cried like a little bitch because of it. Later he told me that I should give the track a try because it will help improve my riding since I SUCKED at riding back then. Now I suck less.

RIP John George. You WILL be missed.

This is what I put on my facebook page, it says it best for me.........

No one is ever prepared to lose a dear friend. My heart was clearly not equipped to harbor such adversity this evening. Obviously God needed & wanted him more than our own selves. You will forever be in our hearts Johnny. R.I.P. ♥

I am not taking this well at all. Johnny & Nikki were(are) very dear to us. Even in the short few years I knew them, it felt like a lifetime friendship. I can't even fathom what she is going through right now. Johnny was the epitome of every friend. He was so unbelievably genuine, caring, helpful and loving.

Definitely a violent blow to my heart

R.I.P. Johnny Gee, RIP.

Well said Marr

I am sitting here in shock and I could hear the same in Steve's voice when we spoke a bit ago - Johnny and I were by no means best buds but the times we rode together, we always ended up hanging together in the group

This is the hard part for me, knowing there are so many bad people out there and God takes one of the good ones - I always did and will continue to smile every time I go thru "Johnny Corner" and see that scrape in the surface

Damn...

This is so hard to believe that something like this has happen to such a kind, soft spoken person with a great heart.

I know I didn't know him as well as others but we did some hard riding in the past. We stayed in touch via email since he live down by Homewood over the past few years and just laughing over us getting separated from everyone else on the F4T on the way back. Gosh that was a good time and full of obstacles that day. Something him and I only knew what we went through....

I'm sorry and my condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P.

Ow

While it may not have helped in this case... but if anyone has not gotten registered with a DNA-style DB (FUCK big brother) such as Bone Marrow, Kidney, liver, blood type, etc type of thing; please do so. I'm sorry if this seems like a thread jack; it isn't. It's a plea to everyone to 'help anyone' in anyway you can.
