Jim’s family and friends, knowing how much he loved the sport , and the So. Calif. desert area known as Cud- deback, came up with a unique way to honor their friends memory. They hauled his beloved 390 Husky out to one of Jim’s favorite desert spots in the area, and after scattered his ashes to the four winds, left a lasting tribute to their friend. Their inspired tribute to their buddy, and his passion for his sport, was to bury Jim’s old Husky, encased in concrete, into a lasting monument out in the So. Calif. desert. More Than Just Husky’s Just in case you wondered, no one is actually buried at the Husky Memorial. As far as we know, there are only scattered ashes left there, and memori- als. Since Jim’s buddies plant- ed his ‘Husky” in the dez, other off-roaders have made the pil- grimage to what has come to be known as the “Husky Memo- rial”. Over time, many other riders have been memorial- ized here, with all manner of gravestones, race momentos, cleaver headstones, some with The Checkers Motorcycle Club put up a moving tribute to a beloved mother Linda Faye Kirt at the Husky Memorial as a “Grandmother, Sis- ter, Friend, Racer, Fisher Woman, and Realtor” .
