Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Johnny O, Aug 1, 2010.

  1. To my friend Matt who just lost his life racing at Phillip Island, you were on 'pole' for the race, you went out the way the rest of us racers hope to go; on the track.

    You were a fantastic guy, always a smile and a helping hand for everyone, you will be missed so much by your family, friends and racing community.

    John :-(
