    Default Sad loss - Motorcyclist dies

    I operate a website like this one, but for Suzuki Bandit riders. I heard today that one of the members was killed yesterday. I always dreaded the day that would happen.

    He was one of my regular posters, and had clocked up some impressive forum time. I only met him on our annual rideout this year, a cracking Yorkshire fella.

    From what I have heard, he hit a taxi as it performed a u-turn.

    So please be careful bikers, especially now with the dark days and wet icey weather.

    I read all of the posts when I checked out you're forum this morning and it clicked, that will have been the accident that I passed yesterday afternoon in Bradford. It's such a sad loss.

    My thoughts go out to family and friends. RIP mate!!

    Cheers guys.

    I have added a link to this thread from the forum, as his family will take comfort from all the comments when they are composed enough to read them.

    It's nice being part of two friendly communites, that look out and care for each other. I found out about this news after reading the story of the member on here that got scammed with the playstation3. I checked my own site out, and saw a simiar thread about fundraising, and then I realised the terrible news.

    For those that wish to read the messages, please visit http://www.banditforum.co.uk/forum/i...p?topic=8468.0
