Hello south west riders. Has any seen or heard of Ronnie lately. Anybody around Midland to check on him?

Several inquiries about him. He requested several months ago that we drop him from the forum — said he had medical issues and was in the hospital (didn’t like getting notifications etc). I PM’d him several times to check in — no answer. I fear the worst.

Glad to see a request to check on him. It’d be nice to know one way or ‘t’other.

RB is/was a bit of a curmudgeon, but once you get past the exterior noise, he has a heart of gold! A great guy!!! I hate to think of the "was"!!!
Check in with us Ronnie!
Every now and then I hear from Big Daddy. He's a pretty cool dude too.
A lot of us Old Timers had slipped by the wayside. I remember when the forum membership was less than 3,000, back when I was just a lurker here.

Has he stopped posting on the other forum too?
Apparently the answer would be yes, on rider.net looked like last message was in 2018 and on a shadow forum was a year earlier than that. Said something about he sold his Indian.

Actually, I saw a post back in July from him on Indianrider.net.....

I know that, when we spoke, a few years ago, when Meggie was a moderator, she moderated as well as @HINK , but we were chastised by her, and probably rightfully so, but Ronny resented the chastisement, and that pushed him over the edge. Also chastised a longtime member and Harley rider, but I can't remember his moniker. I haven't seen him on the site for quite a while either.
A bit of dirty laundry aired here, but that is the reason Ronny left.
I have endured! Lol!

Just tried to start a conversation with him over there. It was blocked. Sigh....

Meggie did a lot of unnecessary moderating and deleting IMO. I'm about as mild of a poster as you could find. Just post things about Indian. Thought that's what it was all about. Her issue with me was completely uncalled for. Rather than fight it I just cooled off as well. Hink is a great moderator.

Yep, I goofed somehow when clicking on his user name and the posts number. Think I must’ve been looking at older posts instead of most recent.

Seems he was last here on this forum seven months ago during the talk about using hydrogen peroxide as a bug remover and windshield cleaner.

Must’ve been smart enough to not use the stuff as a virus preventative, since he was still online six weeks ago.;)
