    That's Irish John, a member here! He's on my friends list, I'm speechless, we never met but corresponded many times over the years, a truly unique individual with a special vision on the motored bike world. Don't know what to say, god bless, condolences to family and friends.

    Ride in peace IJ.

    Thanks for the info will_start.
    My heart also feels heavy Happy Valley. I've had many PM conversations with Irish John.
    We just talked about bikes and mechanical design. I never knew the had been a volunteer
    with Marine Rescue NSW at Brunswick Heads.
    I never meet him in person yet I feel great sorrow for the man with a passion for bikes.
    I too would like to say god bless, thanks for all of your support, and I won't forget you.

  5. Some people are just *******s, and need to get over themselves. I never even heard of this guy, but anyone who would deliberately run down an old man on a bike is nasty SOB in my book...

    John was a long time member here in good standing. This should be made a sticky.

    Senseless tragedy, I've seen the video somewhere before. Looks like
    the man built some great bikes in which he still lives on down the road.
    Hope the string up that SOB that run 'im down.

    I just got the news report today from my friend Ian Klutke in Darwin. I've corresponded with John many times, and I was beginning to wonder why I hadn't heard from him. RIP John, you'll be missed.

    My sincere condolences to "Irish John" and his family.
    We shared much the same "old school" vision about sustainable Motored Bicycles.
    His wisdom and experience will be missed by all.
