    It is always sad to hear of passing of someone you know of. We all say. Let’s seize the day, but never do.

    Here I sit with Picato gel all over my face. All I can say is. Let’s all keep riding as long as we can. Don’t go quietly.

    R.I.P mate.

    Will have a beer for you tonight.
    Followed by an instant coffee and maybe even a cigarette for breakfast in your honour.

    gonna miss sitting in his workshop.
    drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes.
    he was a good bloke to talk big life issues to.

    and him schooling me on just about everything to do with fab or mechanics.
    i take a lot of schooling and he just kept dumbing stuff down or demonstrating until i could understand.
    so much more in the real world than the sum of his posts.

    Good bloke gone too soon - I'm crying writing this
    I knew him through our conversations on 'Olds Cool' @ XS650 Appresh thread
    Never met and now never will - not in this lifetime anyway

    So many laughs with the bloke down in the basement here. He'll be remembered for that by me. I don't like how he's passed so suddenly but I know he'd have found a peace with it. Ride on, Luke. We'll catch up soon enough for more good laughs.

    Hey Bully, maybe consider changing the thread title to something more identifying of who were memorializing here. If you do it to me when my time comes, I'll fucking haunt you on the shitter, even out bush.

    Fuck, never met him but he was always good fun in the Harley bashing threads downstairs. It`s often hard to gauge a persons character from internet posts, but his genuine wit and charisma was clear to see.

    Ride free Ol`mate....

    I just caught this thread on the front page. And, I'm gutted. I had no idea.

    Rest in Peace, Luke. Despite having never met you, I will miss you and our message chats. God Speed, my Friend. :beer

    RIP Luke.. ride the Astral highways and byways.

    My wife is a BC survivor, eight years in and still doing well.. lost one of my mates to cancer a couple of months back, lost my wife's brother to cancer a few months back, lost one of my riding mates to cancer about three years ago (Southern Cross, aka Saturn 5, on this forum and others) ... and they say motorcycle riding is dangerous. :hmmmmm

    FUCK CANCER.

    We wouldn't lose so many if they got themselves checked more often. I'm as guilty as the rest, but my doc called me in, said it was time. It was a good move.
