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.
