James Bransford passed away yesterday following an accident at his home. Even in 2022 he was building bridges for the Cherokee National Enduro. These weren’t little sticks across a rut, but were solidly built structures across impassable ravines. James might be imitated but will never be duplicated.

James was the cornerstone of SETRA, a Charter Member, becoming President then Chairman for many years, and the Cherokee MC, again leading it and building it into the mega-club it is today.

James was 83. He will be missed but his presence will always be with us, especially in the Cherokee woods.
