Some of you will already know from FB.

I don't think he was a member but I know some here knew him personally and others via FB.

I think his record of over 1.4 million k's on a pretty much stock (rebuilt a few times) 11 will be a hard act to follow.

RIP Darko

 Yes, the sad news was on FB a short while ago.

I never met Darko, but followed his posts for a long time. His mileage were epic. A sad loud to the whole FJ community.

'89 FJ 1200 3CV - owned from new.
'89 FJ 1200 3CV - no engine, tank, bike for the future.
'88 FJ 1200 3CV - complete runner 2024 resto project
'88 FJ 1200 3CV - became a race bike, no longer with us.
'86 FJ 1200 1TX - sold to my boss to finance the '89 3CV I still own.

I didn't post here since I had no idea you knew about him. Legend lives!
He died suddenly of pulmonary embolism, rode his FJ that day. It has close to 1.6 million km I think, but definitely more than 1.5.
