Apologies for having a whinge, ladies & gents but just wanted to pay tribute to a fellow rider. My eldest brother died yesterday from terminal lung cancer. He was much older than I but he rode for as long as I can remember. He rode a Honda 1000cc really heavy bike during the 70's around Australia. Not sure of the model, I was just a Kid! but I know it had a really bright blue petrol tank ;-) The silly bugger rode thru North Queensland (again in the 70's) during the wet season & I remember him showing me a picture of him being "bogged" in the mud . . . all you could see in this picture is a muddy road with handlebars sticking up thru the mud! hahaha! bogged? how about sunk! So anyway, time skips forward, he got married had kids, his kids grew up, moved out & then he bought himself a BMW cruiser. He loved it & so did I. showed him my pride & joy: CBR600RR & he loved it. Then he became crook with the lung cancer, it took hold really REALLY fast and he passed away at 11 o'clock yesterday. So anyway, thanks for listening, apologies for not making much sense and he was a lot of things to a lot of people. Most of all he was my eldest brother and my inspiring rider. RIP Christopher (Chris) Reynolds 1950-2011.
