    Wow that sucks :(

    I would suggest anyone and everyone go read his obituary even if you didn't know him. It is an absolute piece of art.

    I'm not sure I ever had the pleasure of his company, which is a shame. RIP.

    John was a great part of WERA Vintage in the '90's and early 2000's. I always enjoyed his company on and off the track. I'm surprised to learn he was a track star . . . when I knew him he was a "full" framed guy - like me, a large guy on a small bike. He is missed. Godspeed John, and all the very best to your family.

    The beginning of the obit is epic:

    "WILLOW SPRING - John J Early, age 73, of Willow Spring, NC, died peacefully at home Monday, October 31, 2022, leaving behind 2 complete motorcycles, approximately 4 motorcycles in pieces, numerous Beach Boy record albums, and an awesome workshop which he had wanted for over 40 years."

    I hope my obit is half as cool as that...

    I last to talked to John at Rd Atlanta years ago. He was still running his Honda 350 with a tz tank he had made fit. A true gentleman. And a wealth of knowledge, in everything he did. Godspeed John Early.
