Word comes of the passing of Bob Leong of Vancouver, B.C. He was known to friends and fans as bobskoot, though more recently he had been riding motorcycles.

Bobskoot passed in his sleep from an apparent heart attack while on vacation in Nashville, Tenn. He and his wife Yvonne had been traveling through the South in Bob’s Corvette, a trip which included a visit to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky.

Bob’s blog Riding the Wet Coast began in 2008 and was noteworthy for prolific posting and Bob’s observations on his many long road trips, first on a scooter, then on a succession of motorcycles.

Bob was also famous for sporting pink Crocs, the molded plastic footwear from Boulder, Colo.

Bob’s blog continues, with a succession of guest posters. Favicon

    Man that is horrible. I never met the man but felt I knew him via his comments on my blog and via the Wet Coast Scootin website. Rest in Peace my friend. You will be missed.

    A beautiful post Orin. He was the one and only Bobskoot. I think he facilitated a lot of other bloggers getting together and meeting too. He will be missed.
