Jim and I have been friends for a long time.   I am going to miss him very much.  You could not be in a bad mood around Jim.  His infectious smile, and his sharp wit would have you laughing in no time at all.  He was a talented contractor and mechanic.  I will always remember him and his generosity. 

August 2015 I am talking with Jim on the phone.   He says something like this.

Jim.   You should sink your lifts in the ground.

CP     I would love to but,

Jim.   I will come out and do it for you.

CP.    I can't ask you to drive 1500 miles one way to put my lifts in the ground.

Jim.  I need a vacation, I will round up the tools and get Keith to join me. 

CP.    I can't ask you to do that and I can't afford it right now either.

Jim.  I didn't ask for $  We will be out.

That is the kind of guy Jim was.  He and Keith drove out and worked like crazy for three days and drove home.
 I am forever grateful and smile every time I load a bike on my lift.   I spoke with Jim moments before he headed out on his last ride, He was coming to visit me in three weeks.  I will always remember and miss my friend Jim Hutton.   :sad: :cry:

All words still escape me,  I would go and BS with Jim all the time, I had just got back from 6 weeks in Europe and first thing I did was go visit Jim, glad I did.... we would talk about everything in life, politics, and family.  he was all excited about Margarita Festival that Keith was leading and gave him a chance to get away from the shop,  he was sick of the shop and lack of A/C with the HOT temps we were having plus he was super busy.  Phil, he was also talking about visiting you and looking forward to it.  Going to miss him a lot.   RIP Jim

Like many on this page, I met Jim (Hop Sing) some years ago at the V-Twin Expo. I always looked forward to seeing Jim and the rest of the HTT crew at the Expo. I cant count how many times I have had dinner, breakfast or drinks with that guy. Always funny, very intelligent, just a really good dude. It saddens me to know that he and his lady friend (does anyone know her name?) were killed the way they were, but on the ups side, he went out riding his bike with what were probably his best friends. If there is a Valhala for bikers, Jim is there. Probably planning to install a subsurface bike lift.

Lets not forget Coyote in all of this. I have experience with seeing your friends killed while leading them. Its a mind fuk to the  tenth order and no man should have to experience it. I hope Coyote can find peace within himself and know that this was not his fault.

Cheers to Jim, His Lady,  Keith and everyone else effected by this. Love you guys.

I never met the man but I remember when cali phil posted the pics and story of him coming and putting his lifts in the ground. I thought then and there what a guy he must have been. A real friend and genuine top shelf kind of people. The world needs more like him. We should all strive to be more like that. For all that was lucky enough to know him and call him a friend I offer my condolences and so sorry for your loss!!

I never met Jim but I followed the exploits.  When I was pretty ill in 14 Jim sent me a great note which gave me some incite to the man's character.  Obviously by the responses here he made an impression and is remembered well.   That's really all any of us can ask for, to be remembered well.

My most sincere condolences to Jim and Teri's family, personal friends and HTT family/friends. 

I heard about this horrible news while on vacation and raised a glass in his memory at that time.  Those hay trucks on CA Highway 88 are a public menace at this time of year.   Anyone who rides that beautiful stretch of road at this time of year needs to be very wary of them.  My father died on hwy 88, on Aug 13th, 2005.

RIP Jim and Teri   :sad:
