Jim Scrabrough is my friend. He is missed. He's a buddy, a fellow to shear tails and stories with. Good buy old friend until we meet again. Ellis Lamme

I'm so very sorry for the family and friends of Mr. Scarbrough. I did not know him. I am part of the Atlanta scooter community and I know my scootering peers nationwide have heard about this and are also saddened to hear of this preventable tragedy: http://www.modernbuddy.com/forum/topic22438.html Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with him, and part of his legacy is the safety lessons his loss will pass on to others - and hopefully save another rider's life.
