    I never had the pleasure of meeting either and never was involved in any discussion with Phil, but I know how giving CharlieD was and from what I glean from you all who knew him, PhilCBX sounds to have been the same caliber.

    Laser and CharlieD helped me bring my bike from the mostly dead and the patience they both showed a random dude new to the cafe was phenomenal.

    Hats off gentlemen - wave 'em high.

    I knew both... NEVER met... did many P.M's with both.

    PhilsCBX... Honda dealer mechanic... race team mechanic.. CBX race engine builder.. was able to weld engine blocks back together.
    like me.. he and information over the internet was not easy or CLEAR.. but still offered much help to others..

    Charlie D,, was good with information DETAIL over the internet.... he learned every detail possible for the VTX1300 carburetor ...
    did great write-ups on that subject... he was a master machinist.. and CNC programmer.

    You habg around the Cafe long enough and unfortunately get to see too many people who you feel have become friends, either disappear from Honda life or pass away. RIP friends.
