Dick Dastardly

It is with great sadness that I have to report this.

Dick Dastardly passed away yesterday in a car crash. Colin was a thoroughly nice bloke and generous to a fault.

It was Colins generosity that awarded us all with a vast array of prizes during the Lakes IV NavXT event. Colin did not want anyone to know he was our benefactor, but with his passing I think it right that I share this with you now.

He was a true biker, owning many bikes and credited with being the first person I know to take a spanking new Tenere from the showroom to the trail, without even stopping for a brew. Colin has also participated in many Enduro events and had ridden the Dakar rout in his younger days. He had a real passion for anything with an engine.

As sad day for me personally.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
