    Tonight I have closed Hoople's account at his request.
    His account was not removed because of any wrongdoing.
    He felt it best that he move away from the forum for now, but did leave the door open that he may be back at a later date at which time I would be more then happy to re instate his account. He was a great friend to many and a great asset to this forum.

    Wow. Hope he decides to return. He has helped me immensely and is an upstanding person. Seems a lot of good people are going away lately.

    I understand that's the way Hoople wanted it but what a loss to the forum. I doubt you could find anyone better at diagnosing electrical problems on our Harley's. He was pretty sharp when it came to mechanical problems as well and can wrench with the best of them. I had the good fortune meeting him at Salt Springs and found he was knowledgeable on way more than Harley's. A real humorous, stand up guy. I wish him nothing but good luck and hope he comes back in the near future.

    This is sad to me having met with him a few times and talking about all kinds of things. He is probably the most helpful man I have met and very humble also. I will miss him and hope he returns to help with his vast knowledge of electrical and mechanical issues, Hoople you da man:s

    Its a real shame....... Hopefully Bubbie is correct and in time Hoople will return with all the same desire to share his infinite knowledge of electronics in the common sense way that allowed all to learn a thing or two. I have never met Hoople but through PMs, he was a stand up kinda a guy that always deserved my greatest RESPECT.

    It is unfortunate for us that Hoople has left this forum. Even though I haven't had any need for his advice, (yet), I did enjoy reading his posts. They were always well written, easy to understand, and entertaining.

    I hope he will reconsider leaving this forum, and if not, I wish Hoople nothing but the best.

    Cheers Hoople! I hope to read your posts again someday!
