things like this just shows us that our life here is short. Tom was young (relatively speaking) to pass away from natural causes. this should be a reminder to all of us that we never know the time when we will take our last breath. i don't know where Tom was spiritually but i pray that he is with the Lord now.
here's to the loss of a good friend, neighbor, riding partner and tagger.

Cry The big kind viking

There was nothing mad about my friend tom and he was a quiet gentle giant and had a heart of gold and would give you the shirt off his back.. I was with him every minute through some of the darkest days of his life as was he when i needed him and i am super proud to call him a great friend and he stopped by the bike shop just the day before he passed and i was so busy i just dodnt have then time to spend with him i wanted and i feel terrible about it .. I promised to come see him but that will have to wait till we ride together in heaven as he gets ot ride now and enjoy the view.. I am the smaller version of the angry norwegian and a fellow viking and i will tell you through all the struggles tom went through in his life he never once appeared angry and always showed he was a true good man and was so happy with the beautiful girl and his two great kids he took to the minute he met them and he was blessed to spend his last 9 years with and he was just so happy and treated her like a queen and her kids like gold .. He loved his bikes and trucks and he has alot of each and he is riding with the lord in the heavens now and i will get ot ride with him again that's for sure.. Tommy your family will be watched over by all of us and enjoy your rides forever my friend ... God speed my man ,,, hammerhead

RIP amadvikingjr.

I picked up the egg from Whizzer in NH...just happened to be holding it the right way 'round.



Wish I could have met him in person - sounds like a great guy. The egg is now primed for a ride across Canada - or at least Quebec...

Pat

Adventure on, my old friend.

I am saddened to learn of Tom's passing. He was my next door neighbor for a number of years growing up and we had a lot of fun together. I only saw him once as an adult - at that time he was a young man just starting college - but I'm still certain that the world is less for having lost him. He was a good kid. I don't just say that lightly. He really was a good kid. I can't remember a time when he was ever mean to anybody. Even to people being mean to him. He always had a very positive outlook and was generous with whatever he had to share.

It seems fitting that I would learn about his adult interest in both adventure and motorcycling. Tom's parents kept him very close in those years, and if we wanted to play we were confined to his yard. My parents owned the horse ranch next door and although I knew he wanted to ride horses and play in the woods so badly he never complained about his parents. Not only was he a good friend, I'm sure he was a good son too.
So we made the best of the area we had to play in - bicycling circles on his back patio and we even found some places to hide among the forsythia so it felt like we were discovering new lands or something. As far as motorcycles are concerned, I may have had a little influence there - I know for a fact that Tom took his first solo ride on my Honda XR 100 in my backyard in 1983. I remember showing him how to change the gears and watching the look of sheer glee (mixed with a little terror maybe) on his face as he shot
off toward the woods. He swore me to never tell anyone - especially his parents - about the motorcycle riding and until this day I never have. I'm sure Tom would understand me breaking my silence now. I am thankful to know that he found joy in his travels, riding and working on bikes, and most importantly his good friends, which it seems many of you were to him.

May your adventures continue wherever you are Tom. All my best to you.
Your friend, AJ
