Just wrong

I'm not an emotional person but this news did me in!! I've shared Bill's rides through MotorBikin DVD's and lived and laughed with him and Phil like I knew them personally.

Very very saddened with the news and can only wonder at how bad depression can be!!

All the very best to family and friends in this sad time.

Regards...Mark

I never know what to say when this happens.

It's all just a tragic waste.

Extremely sad news this,,,
I never had the pleasure of meeting Tugboat, but have heard many a story of his adventures with his mate Philth ,,,
Am really sorry I can`t make the upcoming TK ride even more now.
I`m sure more than a few glasses will be raised in honour of two inspiring men next weekend !!!

Sincere condolances to his family, closest mates & all who rode with him ....

Like others here, I've only met Bill through the Motorbikin' DVD's. I'm floored.
Condolences to Phil, family and friends.

Enjoy the new roads and I hope that black dog leaves you alone now. RIP and thanks for the laughs Tuggers.

You never know what things are going through people's heads sometime. Tugboat was a dear friend of mine yet I had no idea of his demons. All I can say is I know he enjoyed as much as I did all the rides and times we spent together. He was a lovable bloke and it is easy how people could feel like they knew him from the videos he did with Philth. It is going to be a tough time for all of us to know he's gone. Yes Cougar he will be up there laughing at my stories and the silly stuff I did. I now know now that it is probably one of the things that keep him here a bit longer as is the other mates he had. A big thanks to Philth and the boys for the last two days. Netty we are here for you xxx

RIP Tugboat you were a real Treasure. By the way Hold it Flat up there mate (Speed is Your Friend) yip yip yip yah

I only met him a few times.
He helped me out.
I even managed to help him out.
I'll miss him for many reasons.

13th of September.
R U OK? Day.
Ask, listen, respond.
You might help someone.
