Haven't seen a post from Marshall in quite a while, and I know he is going through an aweful lot. I've seen a lot of my immediate family go through some hard times, extended hospital stays and the like, and it can be down-right discouraging to be down and out for so long. Friends and family are what got them through, as well as some encouraging words, thoughts, humor, prayers etc.



I was hoping we could have this topic 'pinned', rally together with the bikes that bind us together and I would like to encourage you all to either coordinate a group ride, take and post a group picture, or even go out on your own and snap a picture, and share some thoughts or words of encouragement.



I've only got to know Marshall just recently, and breifly through some PM's and brief chats, but he's taught me an aweful lot, and his posts have a wealth of knowledge.



So Ride, Grab some pics, and share some words of encouragement, maybe drop him some PM's.



This is a great group, and I know if it were me, something like this would mean the world.



Hope you're doing well friend! Stay encouraged, we're all behind you!

Rick,



Let's get the Cleveland area guys together and take a group photo

& send it to him.



Of course we'll have to ride also!


Well then, calling all Cleveland Area Riders! Lets ride Wednesday night, head south to Hinckley Ohio...I have a pretty cool spot for a photo, we can kick around down south, and then head back up north to bike night for a bit? PM me if you are interested and we can coordinate a place to meet before we ride...I am thinking somwhere in Parma becuase there are abour 4 of us in that general area?

"I talked with Marshall ’s mother this morning and she did not have good news.



He has been in the hospital for 5 and one half weeks and in ICU part of that time.



She, his mother, said the cancer is terminal. I think he will go to a specialty hospital



for the remaining time that he has. He has been in ICU but may be back in a room now."



that is an email i got from old okie today



i have only one question is there any way all of us can keep marshall and his mom in your thoughts?

As to the question, DONE! Don't know Marshall, but if he is from these parts, he certainly deserves our thoughts and prayers. Be well my friend!

Don't quite know what to say.




I will certainly keep Marshall and family in my prayers.



Thanks for the update Lucky. I know that had to be a difficult thing to follow-up with.



Edit: This really hurts...I lost my niece to cancer what seems like yesterday.

A few of us met up at Two Wheel Tuesdays in Milwaukee tonight.



And like usual we ran into a few other cx/gl's or those people that say "I use to have one of these."

He is in my thoughts and was a large reason i got my bike working. if he hadent been working with mat from TAS i would never had found out about the oem mech seal for our bikes and had to fork out 70 sum odd dollars for it from the dealer and not to mention the 90 degree filters too.

If there is no objection i will see if mat is willing to work with me to get the parts list marshall was working on posted. It will save members time looking for a good deal on parts for the bike and i think it would be a good thing to do.

I think that is awesome. There are a lot of projects Marshall has going. A few you have mentioned as well as the Vaccum Gauges, Voltage Regulator Kits, on the list goes! He is a talented guy and very knowledgable for sure!!

Having followed many threads here and on the old site over the years I've long since come to recognise Marshall as a very decent and knowledgeable guy. He has my best wishes and if anyone here is in the position to visit him or speak with him at all I think it would be important that our sentiments here are passed on to him.



Cancer is a stone cold bitch.

That is a great idea. Maybe Old Okie, or someone that is close to him would be so kind to share this thread with him?!?
