Only just found out about this as i don't at the moment get on here much, i never got the chance to meet John in person, he was always here if i wanted a chat or advise, he'll be missed, condolences to his family.

Not often I get on forums nowadays, first visit for a while and I read this. Never met him, but he came across as a good guy. Hopefully he gets to ride in some dry weather now.

Our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.

Izzadora 02-05-2015 08:16 PM

He was one of the reasons I kept looking in even though I am no longer a biker. John's jokes were the best and the worst, made me laugh out loud a lot.

RIP John, ride safe.


Friar Tuck 03-05-2015 05:20 AM

I'm sure john appreciates your sentiments as we all do. And I'm sure john would wish you to still pop in and join in the forum. you don't have to have a bike to be on here, just have the appreciation of bikes and the lifestyle. Don't leave it too long huh?


BikerGran 03-05-2015 11:39 AM

Hey Izzadora - just cos you don't have a bike doesn't mean you're not a biker!

Rip John, I never met him but read many of his post with a smile, my condolences to his family.

cyberluddite 14-05-2015 03:08 PM

Only just caught up with this one, and very sad news.
John had a wealth of experience to impart and a voice of moderation when things got heated, always delivered with a dry sense of humour.

R.I.P. John.

I have not been on here for some time, and I am shocked to hear about John, he visited us on his "Ride around Wales" he still lives on with his book of the same title, which stands on my bookshelf, belated condolences from Anita and myself to all the family. R.I.P. John.

Friar Tuck 20-04-2016 05:54 AM

It's Been a Year Today.....
That Wendy, his daughter, announced John's passing.

We've all missed his acerbic wit, I shall raise a glass in his memory!

wiskers 20-04-2016 07:18 AM

I often think of John

Definitely a case of gone but not forgotten

Cheers John all the best Dai

The Beer Monsters 20-04-2016 07:29 PM

Met John in Tredegar.

He was our sort of nutter.

Welcome back to the forum, Matey. It was a sad day when John went. We've all got a a lot older. All none the wiser! A number of members have moved on, & a few new 'uns have arrived.
