Does anyone know where Bill has landed? Anyone hear from him or know how to get in touch with him? Has he disappeared?

Lets just say that there was a disagreement [I can't remember what over...sorry, can't even remember who was right or wrong], a bit of 'who sez', and some regrettable actions. Bill then left, however I thought I saw a thread with him commenting on it recently...but I could be dreaming???
It is a shame because he made some quite valuable contributions........but we all follow our own destiny.

Bill got caught up in a period of somewhat overzealous policing ( My own personal opinion ), he took exception to some of his posts being deleted by the admin team and has moved on. A great shame as his knowledge of pre unit machines would be invaluable to many. It seems his account has also been deleted so unless anyone can pass on his contact details you may be stuck for getting hold of him.

I didn't remember what happened to Bill but I did enjoy his preunit stuff and imagining him running around the island on an old Triumph.

H/Bill's BB experience, expertise and general outlook on life are sadly missed; given his declared geographical location and declared interests outside of BB then it's probably not too difficult to track him down, but perhaps he doesn't want to be tracked down.

The real value of any forum is primarily the posters' contributions.

I concur, without Bill's help my 59 Bonnie would be no where near the shape it is today!! So much knowledge.. Hope he is doing well.

Splash may have some contact with him. I'm sure I remember Bill helping him a couple of years ago.

Had opportunity to meet him several years ago when my wife and I visited the islands. Super nice guy, put us on one of his bikes and took us for a tour of Maui.

My mistake Morgan. I tried to send Bill a PM and it came up member not listed. I think I added a space in his name. I've never noticed the members list tab before.
