Ibsen is on the eternal ride…

Postby Vatch » Thu Jan 17, 2008 12:46 pm

I received word from Bigjims that Ibsen passed away from a heart attack on Dec19, 2007. I have not checked in the board much since selling my 650 in the summer, but need to post this. He will be greatly missed. I learned a lot from Ibsen, and my bike would not have run as well as it did without his input. Was there ever a regularly ridden cb650 kept as clean as his?
Ride in peace, Ibsen.

That is terrible news. I only knew him through this forum but he was a source of great advice and encouragement. That's very sad,

regards, Phil

I'm shocked to hear that. He contributed a lot of precise information and always found the right words to transmit it. His pictured stories always let show the enjoyment he found in riding and taking care for his bikes. Life certainly is not fair.

I did not know Ibsen but I decided to take a look back at his profile and select posts. I found one post of particular irony that I thought Id share...
