    I was lucky enough to have lunch twice with Dom and Hazel two summers ago. I was working in Sarasota and drove up to see them. So grateful I did.

    Unhappy

    Just saw notice of his passing on Facebook (Thanks, Hap!). Too soon for a really nice guy and real character! I had the chance to meet and ride with him twice, years ago. You'll be missed, Scotty - enjoy the twisties "up there!"

    Yes, it was.

    Through the years Scotty had several monikers.

    Wow that's hard to believe.

    Years ago he sent me a clutch basket and didn't want much money for it but I still paid him more, he didn't want it but I told him to go out and have a nice dinner.

    He was a great guy !

    Yes, he had a good heart. Years ago I mentioned I dumped my bike, (a low speed "fall over" at a gas station), and broke a signal light. He sent me a spare he had up here to Canada! Again, he said he didn't want anything for it. I sent him the postage. RIP Scotty.

    Dom.... Buddy.... What a blast you were.
    When I first came to this site, Scotty did not believe I was a real person. Boy, did he test me! He even made up a false profile of some raggedy chick... Can't remember the name he called her...
    Then we met up in Missouri @ the First Annual GSR Rally. Dave (RIP) held it. Lots of you were there. Scotty & I became very good friends...
    Miss Scotto, but, he & Dave are having a blast!
    Save me a seat.......... Please.....

    That's okay Patti folks seem to develop 'dysphasic co-occurring paradigm schism' around here... they're not sure what's real and often confuse their bikes with their wives.

    I didn't know Scotty that much but it's easy to tell how big his heart was, equaled only by his capacity for mischief.
