Paul aka Shooby

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how active Paul was on here.  I left SOCAL in Aug of 2016 and wasn't around on here anymore.  But I wanted to share that Paul passed Friday night suddenly.  The reason isn't really known right now but judging by what his wife told me on the phone I'd guess a heart issue.  Paul went by Shooby both here and over on ADVRIDER.  I rode with Paul quite a bit from 2013 to 2016 all over Southern California.  He was one of the best riding buddies I had over the years.  He'll be sorely missed.  

If anyone has any photos of Paul you would like to share myself and Ted (Stoke) are gathering up photos to possibly put on a drive to share with his wife.  

In the meantime here are various photos I've dug up. 

Some from Santa Rosa/Toro Peak area.  This was probably one of the last rides I did with Paul before leaving California.

Sorry to hear this, not sure if I met him but a fellow rider is always a friend waiting to be discovered.

RIP Paul, I don't remember him, don't think he was very active here.

But like Mo said, he's a fellow rider and brother...Godspeed.

Bit late on posting on here, but just wanted to re-introduce myself to SDAR again in light of all this. I'm Ted aka "stoke". Along with Paul (shooby) and Josh @downs I ran one WARPED rally back in the day. I met Paul off of advrider and here, same with josh. We rode as a crew locally pretty frequently and hit a few rallies as well. Paul was a good dude, the best riding partner anyone could ask for. Patient, even when waiting for my slow ass to catch up lol. We did a lot of SDAR rides together. 

Anyhow, I used to attend the NOOB rides pretty frequently and always had a blast exploring these areas of San Diego few people even know exist. I also usually pop out to @DSM8's place for tech days when he does one of those-the last one I picked up the new SDAR shirts, bitchen. Looking forward to starting to ride more here again. Took a bit of time off for a work transition last couple of years, but missing the rides. 

Still riding the same bike, 2008 vstrom. 
 

Just joined the FB group as well. I'm "Theodore" on FB, my full legal name
