JeremySumpter. I Will Retire May 15.

Due to a health issue discovered in 2017 requiring all my attention, I can no longer focus 100% on writing the JeremySumpter Post and traveling intensively in the US and abroad.

Consequently, I plan to retire and turn a new corner in my life to see what it has in store for me. The future of this site has yet to be finalized. In any case, I will silence my keyboard on May 15th and hope for a possible transition. The JeremySumpter Post is doing very well and to this day remains the leading “Daily Custom Motorcycle News” in the digital category. All content and comments, published since its creation in 2006, will stay online indefinitely.

My strongest emotion right now is deep gratitude to everybody who, during all my life, supported me to make my personal and professional dreams come true across two continents. Thank you so much and I wish many years of success to all of you.

    Cyril,

    I have been reading your posts for a long time. I look forward to Monday mornings when I get your post. I recall the first Hoka Hay run from Key West to Homer Alaska…I lost a good friend on that ride…you where one of the few that would tell it like it is. You have always treated all motorcycles fairly. You have pretty much allowed people to say what they think about your posts.

    Going to miss you Cyril…what ever you do in life from here on out…enjoy every second of it…I know one thing for sure…you will be riding till the end.

    Hark

Of course yes you are doing the right thing and we all hope that you get your health issues resolved and that you proceed with whatever else you like to do with your life. And finally we hope the JeremySumpter Blog can continue to entertain us and enlighten us under new leadership. Thanks again and best wishes.

  31. 31 boston jim May 7th, 2018 at 9:05 am

    Hey Cyril, God Bless ! I’ve been battling health issues for 13 years , sucks ! Life is too short, 49 years ago, I went to my 1st Laconia Rally (69), on my 50 Panhead, I was 19 ! I was riding the Billy Bike before Easyriders had come out ! Next month will be my 50th Laconia, lots of changes ! Now, I’m an Ole Man of 68, where did the time go ?

    8 days notice, I don’t like the sounds of that ! I don’t like the 1st week in May, since 1957, when I lost my favorite Uncle, in 67, I lost my Best Friend in Vietnam, then lost my oldest brother in a car wreck in 71 ! You take care of yourself, nothing else matters, listen to your Doctor’s, they may not know Shit about motorcycles, but, they know modern medicine ! Get Well, Boston Jim

    Health first. My routine is going to change. That’s the way it goes. “Life’s about changing, nothing ever stays the same” – Patty Loveless reminds me of that frequently in her great song. As Willy says in his new song – “You don’t ever get over it, you just get through it.”

    All the best, and may great health be yours again and forever.

  41. 41 Dale Ianni May 7th, 2018 at 9:26 am

    Mr. Huze,

    Thank you so much for all of the positive contributions that you have made to the sport of motorcycling and the motorcycle industry. This blog is the best, hands down that exists. You will be dearly missed but your health and well being comes first. All the best to you and once again thank you very much.

  73. 73 Tom Ryan May 7th, 2018 at 11:43 am

    Cyril, I hope you can handpick some knowledgeable people to continue this site under your name which I’m sure they’re willing to do. Perhaps you could even get seven separate people who could each contribute at least one/two news items a day to cover the whole week. This would allow each of them some lead time to work on their news item(s) instead of overloading one person to do it on a daily basis.

    Thanks and take care!

    Despite always busy at work, I have always made time to read your stuff, Cyril. You’ll surely be missed but, if the malady discovered is what we all think it is, then there’s no photo shoot. Nothing else should really matter until this chapter is under control. Bon courage 😉 !!!

    When I can no longer monitor your blog every day there will be a hole in my mornings. You have been generous to me, over the years. In my capacity as a moto-scrie for Thunder Press I consider your reporting a necessity. To say you will be missed is a gross understatement.

    I’m hoping you can get the treatment you need and recover from your condition. Please enjoy many happy years of retirement.

    Thank you for your years of covering an industry within an industry. You ability to cover topics and highlight the numerous talented people and companies will leave a void in the marketplace. Your ability to not only takes a machine and fashioned a rolling piece of artwork but you have funneled that creativity by giving us a periscope of what is possible. You coverage knows no borders, no geopolitical biases but opens a pathway of exposing machines and the creatives mind behind the them across the globe.

    Enjoy your retirement!

    Bonjour Cyril, ceci est une doublement triste nouvelle ! Nous ne nous connaissons pas (je suis un français de Fort Lauderdale, propriétaire de zerider.com), mais tous les jours je me délecte de ta newsletter et l’idée de ne avoir a me la mettre sous la dent m’attriste mais ce qui m’attriste encore est d’apprendre tes soucis de santé (j’espère qu’ils se résoudront rapidement !). En tant que passionné de moto dédiant ma vie et vivant de la moto et supposant que tu es au moins aussi passionné que moi, j’imagine que cette décision n’a pas du être facile à prendre. Si tu penses qu’un passionné puisse en aider un autre et que je puisse t’être d’une quelconque utilité le temps que tu te remettes sur pieds, n’hostie pas a me er a travers mon site. Cette proposition n’a rien de vénale, c’est juste pour l’amour de l’art !
    Anyway, fait ce qu’il faut pour te rétablir au vite !!!

    Cyril,

    I pray that your health returns and you are on a path to a complete and quick recovery. I admire what you have been able to do with your blog. Corralling the personalities in here is like herding cats, but you have managed remarkably well for the good of all.

    I admire that you have not been quick to judge or at least, had the self control to keep yourself on the high-road. I appreciate that you have provided a venue to allow folks to share and gather important information and timely industry news. I also thank you for reminding us all that our industry is actually very small and we need to respect each other, never tell when we will need each other…

    Most of all, thanks for being a genuine nice guy. It has been an honor to have worked with you through the years. Stay smiling and let me know if there is ever anything I can do for you. Best of luck…

  159. 159 Hillbilly Jim May 8th, 2018 at 7:47 pm

    Thanks for many grins Cyril. I will lift your health issues in prayer.

  160. 160 Coffee Beans May 9th, 2018 at 4:39 am

    I wanted to take a sec and wish you good luck in your retirement ! Most of all best of luck with your health ! I myself have been stalling to write the same announcement due to health issues that just seem to get more intense day by day ! You have carved quite a nitche in the industry that will be hard to replace , I hope you can find someone worthy to take over your site , but I can imagine how hard it would be to just turn over something that’s been so
    Successful To someone who you might have a doubt in or if your not
    Pleased with the financial end ,
    I wish you best of luck with all of your future !

    Cyril,

    I’m very sorry to hear about your current health issues. Having gone through a near death health experience last year I can certainly understand the need to take care of yourself above and beyond all else. I thoroughly enjoyed your blog and the sharing of information, photos and personal insight into this crazy hobby we all love!

    Best of luck with your health situation.

  175. 175 Doc Robinson May 13th, 2018 at 5:22 am

    Farewell Cyril, as everyone else has said we’re gonna miss you. I have always enjoyed our meetings whether at bike shows, Sturgis or stuck in airport lounges together. Always interesting, always informative and always straight shooting.

  176. 176 KC Choppers May 13th, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    Cyril I have followed your weekly blogs since the beginning always something of interest week after week. You will surely be missed and take care of your health. I will have too find something to fill in this time slot that I so looked forward to each week, maybe I’ll build another bike …………

  177. 177 Doug Wozney May 14th, 2018 at 9:25 am

    Cyril,

    As many have said, YOU Sir have been a huge part of this industry and your insight will be greatly missed. Change is something many people have a hard time accepting, but it seems like change is what you’ve embraced, and in many cases CAUSED over the last decade. You are leaving behind one helluva legacy and something to be extremely proud of. You’ve given so much to our industry and now is the time to focus on your health and retirement. Its been an honor to have been associated with you and your blog (albeit in a very small way) over the last few years, and I wish you happiness and health for many years to come! God Bless you Cyril.

  178. 178 Tim Hanlon May 14th, 2018 at 10:26 am

    Cyril Hello. Well, you will be missed. I enjoyed knowing you personally during my time with Mean Street in the MC industry, and of course following your blog. Always good stuff. I wish you the best in your new direction. Take care my friend.

  179. 179 Felicia Morgan May 14th, 2018 at 11:13 am

    Get well soon !!!
    If the blog can continue, please let it, as like many of “The regulars”
    I start my day, everyday with the latest & greatest in motorcycle industry news …
    On a personal note, your support has meant a lot to me
    For giving a video interveiw to a amature guy in Cincinnati Oh at a V-Twin Expo !
    My editor, at the time, rejected the video & I never let him live it down & don’t work for him anymore !
    You may not think you helped,(even when you rejected Metric stories from me)
    But you did & you have !!
    Bon Chance, Mon Ami !!!
