Only met the man once. Few of us were trying to convince him to strap his chair to a dyno. Good times.

RIP Bill

I didn't know him very well, but in his posts he always came across as one of the good guys.

I'm particularly sad, as one of his very last posts on CF was me asking about my Bandit.
I included a pic - he re-assured me it would be OK, and that was that. Bandit healed.
Now, 3 years later, our Bandit is in real deep trouble and I fear he is wasting away and I wish Bill could help ease our pain....

Damn. He was a good guy, he used to kind of get mad at me but it was in a good hearted fun loving way.
He is missed.
