Shit, that hit pretty hard...

Only met him a few times but reading about him and reading his story's always makes you think you know someone better than you do.

A KDX is way cooler than what ever you ride...

There was tugboat driver called Bill
At bike riding, this man had some skill.
He would ride, east to west
Hardly stop for a rest
Right beside him, was his good mate Phil.

Condolences to Bill's family and loved ones.

God bless you mate.

I am in complete shock. My thoughts go out to bills family and friends.

Bill you will be missed mate. Ride on

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

sad news

What a shock. I never met the guy in person but watching and hearing of his antics in the dvd and threads on here always brought a smile to my face. He will be sadly missed. Condolence to friends and family.
R.I.P. Bill.
