FRIEND DOWN ...... and out ( gone) RIP
« on: June 08, 2020, 06:57:19 am »
Went on a ride yesterday morning , saw many bikers out enjoying the day . Spent the afternoon with some friends and then had to go collect bikes as part of my business . Got home just after 7 pm . had dinner and then checked up on social media.
To my horror I saw a  disturbing post . RIP  PAUL FOLLY , Post that he was tagged in . Not sure if I read it correctly I phoned a mutual friend in Ramsgate , could hear him crying when I asked if what I read was fact , He confirmed . They were out on a ride and on there way home , Paul was riding his ZXR14 , front tyre burst , speed wobble , came off and hit a pole , died in their arms . HE was 58 years young  :'(.
We were on a weekend trip to Ramsgate over Easter last year , I miss stepped of my bike , fell and tore my hamstring , forunatly for me there was a bunch of biker at the pub and they came running to help me up , their kind gesture made for new friends . Paul was the Road Captain for the WILD BUNCH ( BLACKPEARL CHAPTER) we were invited to join them on a breakfast run , Paul made us feel as part of the crew, and we were instand friends .
Those that new Paul will miss him , big loss .
MAY HE REST IN PEACE .

Condolensces Deon, and to the family and other friends of Paul.

Front tyre burst, uncommon cause for a crash, that.

Terrible, and it seems there was not much that you could have done to avoid the accident.  :(

Sorry for your loss Deon.

Sad to hear. RIP and strength to those left behind.

Sorry to hear. Also downright scary to dwell on the thought of how this happened.

RIP fellow rider.
