John Moschetto, aka Gypsy Jack, has passed away

I am sorry to inform members of the R1 Forum but John Moschetto, aka Gypsy Jack, passed away several weeks ago in a motorcycle accident in Baltimore county. I believe he was riding his Yamaha R1 which I know he loved to post about on here quite a lot.

I wrote about it on Adam's Auto Advice. I thought people here would like to know since Jack was active and helpful on this forum.

Ohhhh man, that is horrible news...

I never had the opportunity to get to know him, but horrible news nonetheless.

RIP brotha, and my condolences go out to his family.


Thanks Petrol Spice

Wow, so sad to hear. I had many conversations with him about R1's, racing and specific parts. He will be missed.

Behind every great man there's a woman rolling her eyes.

Thanks Petrol!

He was cool dude too... fvck. Respects to his family and friends. Sad news

Asked if he was afraid of dying in an accident, Marco Simoncelli responded: "No. You live more for five minutes going fast on a bike like that, than other people do in all of their life." rip #58 ciao ciao bello
