Hi guys

I am an old freind of tiggers over 20 years who is a little shocked to learn of his death.

i had not heard from him for a few years but just thought he was off on one of his trips, it was not unusual for him to dissapear for a few years to then turn up and find he had been chasing bears across russia or something

can anyone tell me what happened and where he is burried so i can pay my respects to him.

Tigger suffered fatal injuries in a collision with a truck whilst riding a modern bike (not his fault ).
He received a bikers funeral, using a motorcycle/sidecar herse, with lots of bikes as a cortege to his burial in a field in Devon. His last ride did include a bit of high speed on the M5, as he would have enjoyed.
I have photos of the funeral, but don't need to look at them to remember a good mate.
