sad news

Post by Stig » Fri Oct 30, 2009 1:24 pm

received some info yesterday to say that Chris (known as EFFZEDARR
on here and bigJap4 on EXUP1000) lost his life on Wednesday in a bike accident involving 3 scooter riders

http://www.whitbygazette.co.uk/news/Mot ... 5775533.jp

Its a sad loss and I know he'll leave a huge hole in the biking community in general

He was a top bloke who gladly gave up his time to assist others

RIP mate

Sorry to read this. Praying for his family. Please keep us informed as to what happen. Wondering what the other riders were doing when this happen. Never really hear about motorcycles having accidents with each other when just riding, usually it's cars being involved with motorcylces I read about . Again It's very sad to read about it.

Bugger. He was a good guy. The incident as reported seems to be suspect. Hope the authorities get to the bottom of it.

My condolences to his family and buddies. f*ck.

This sucks. :cry:
We have lost another super chap to this cruel world.
I think my last post to him was asking him to include some pics of his bike so that I could look out for him (being just down the road from him),
guess that won't happen now.
My deepest Condolences to his family and friends.
:sad

RIP sir
