Morbid Monday
« on: 14.08. 2017 16:06 »
So in the Scouting world, when a member passes, it is signified with the tracking sign of (typically) a set of pebbles laid out in a circle with a single one in the centre. It means ‘gone home’.

In the pipe smoking world the notification is headed up as ‘broken pipe’.

What might we have for motorcyclists, and perhaps more specifically those of a BSA bent?

I've always called it "falling off the perch". I like Roy's suggestion.
