Simon was a wonderful friend of the bikers rights movement.
He became a wonderful friend for me in our work to prevent the ban on superbikes.
Of course he had the respect of bikers, but he also gained the respect of our opponents - such was the measure of his integrity and ability.
My condolences to his immediate family, and his wider family of bikers everywhere.

My thanks to Liz NEEDHAM, to Nich and to Peter KEMP, who all three sent me a copy of the Thom GUNN poem " The Unsettled Motocyclist's vision of his Death ".
Here it is :

Across the open countryside,
Into the walls of rain I ride.
It beats my cheek, drenches my knees,
But I am being what I please.
The firm heath stops, and marsh begins.
Now we'e at war : whichever wins
My human will cannot submit
To nature, though brought out of it.
The wheels sink deep; the clear sound blurs
Still, bent on the handle-bars,
I urge my chosen instrument
Against the mere embodiment.
Though so oppressed I find I may
Through substance move. I pick my way,
Where death and life in one combine,
Through the dark earth that is not mine,
Crowded with fragments, blunt, unformed;
While past my ear where noises swarmed
The marsh plant's white extremities,
slow without patience, spread at ease
Invulnerable and soft, extend
With a quiet grasping toward their end


It is strange how I should have thought of it, for the 1st time in a couple of years, just a few days before learning of Simon's untimely death. The world is poorer . . .

Simon was the South west regional secretary of MAG uk when I was the MAG rep for Bristol England. He was a massive support to me as a new rep. He gave me the encouragement to run an active and successful MAG group. I met very few people who worked as hard as Simon for the cause of riders rights.
Simon was not all work, he had a fearsome reputation for playing as hard, if not harder than he worked, some thing I experienced several times, to conciderable cost to my liver! Simon always greeted you with a smile and was one of the worlds truely nice guys. I am proud to have known him and although it is a number of years since I saw him last I would still consider him a friend.
The world is a poorer place for his passing.

Meeting Simon was a real pleasure. The first time I met him, he was giving his presentation at the Celtic Motorcycle Club. The next time, I escorted him out of NYC's confusing streets and on to the highway so he could continue his journeys around the United States. When he returned to NY, my club hosted his presentation in Garden City, and then he shared my room up at the Lake George Americade. I hardly knew him, but we've all lost a good friend on the road.
