Really sorry to hear this about Kevin. I've enjoyed reading his articles in the Telegraph. My sympathy goes out to his family.

Shocked

This is a real shock. I visited his website only a couple of days ago and looking forward to his reviews for 2013.

Condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed by many motorcyclists and those interested in bikes.

Shit, that's terrible news. I think he was probably the best all-around moto journalist there was, and I checked in on his blog every few days to see what was new. I've exchanged emails with him as well, and he seemed like a great guy. I was hoping at some point I would get to meet him in person. Godspeed Kevin, you added a lot to my enjoyment of this sport. My condolences to his family and friends.
