So sorry guys but unfortunately I won't be able to make the memorial ride.
My thoughts and prayers to the family and Craig.
I will dedicate my long ride on Sunday and have a strong cuppa tea for the man.
Sorry I don't drink the alcohol. :thumbleft:

Safe ride to the group and rev it up!!!

Oops I overshot. Will join the ride close to the church.
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

Just seen this now, how sad...what a good bugger has left us for the happy heavenly highway. Saw Craig a while back, so very sad.

Go well my friend.....

Sorry I missed the funeral.

Hi Pete,
It went off very well, there were about 20 bikes at the church.
GeoTraveller's wife printed all the wishes from the forum and was going to give it to Beemer Man's wife at the right opportunity. There was over 50 pages in the book.
After the service, not many dry eyes there, we all went off the the Hogs Head for a few drinks.
I saw GeoTraveller did take a few photos, which I'm sure will be posted sooner or later.
Current:
Triumph Tiger 800XC, Triumph Scrambler, Yamaha XT 500 X 2, Yamaha XT550, Yamaha XT600, Kawasaki KLR 650, KTM 50
Past:
Triumph Tiger 855 (sold), Triumph Speed Triple 955 (sold), Triumph Speed Triple 1050 (sold),Yamaha IT 490 (SOLD) Triumph Tiger 1050 (sold), Honda XR200 (killed), Honda XR 500 (killed), XT600 (killed)

Yep we did the morbid thing, and greeted our buddy.  A small section at the rear of the church was used, and 100 chairs were positioned.  All the chairs were taken and is say another 75 or so were standing where-ever they could find a place.  Yep, the place was packed out, far in excess of what that venue could actually accomodate.

The short movie of his life was very nice, and gave an excellent overview of his life.

Cheers my friend, till we meet again! :'(
