    He regularly came to our Jap-car meets on his stunning ZX10r, and I today learned that he was killed in a accident on his bike.

    Tommy was a genuinely nice bloke, and not afraid to show us ricers how quick a crotch-rocket really is.

    I'm truly shocked, this kind of thing always makes you think :(

    RIP mate :(

    That really is terrible news :( I feel for the guy, RIP :(

    The only good thing is that at least he went doing something he loved :(

    There's a time and place dude, don't be an ass.

    Awful news :(

    That is a fantastic photo, captures what you all loved doing together and him being surrounded by his friends. :)

    RIP buddy, even though he was only on two wheels, he surely would of been part of the 4 wheeled club. Any motor enthusiast is sorely lost in these times of MPG, Taxes, and Greener motors.

    He's in a better place for sure

    RIP :(

    Better to go doing something you love than to have never tried!

    This is another reason why i have talked myself out of getting a bike, they are undeniably awesome, but look at what they do so easily :(

    Some trolls really do steep pretty low, nobody cares what you think of bikes.

    Dude please give up, this is a thread about a biker who lost his life, Some people here knew him, and you just come in saying that all people who ride bikes die, and then start calling everyone tards.

    Show some respect ffs.

    Once again, R.I.P Tommy :(

    RIP - Great photo - I've always enjoyed thrashing my 1100 when I get the chance, and I'm glad he enjoyed his bike.

    Many things increase your chance of dying, the vast majority of us choose not to say 'it's his/her fault' at the first opportunity. I would suggest you apologise for your intemperate, and frankly immature comments.

    I'd love to have a bike but I realise how fragile and exposed you are on them, the one reason I won't be getting one.
