Chris was one of the good ones. He will be missed. Fred had many conversations with him just before he bought his Spyder, he loved riding it and was hoping to get back on it once out of the hospital. May he RIP.

So sorry to hear that, only talked to him a few times but he was a good guy.

Ride with God, Chris.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood.
