My thoughts echo'ed ,always loved the fact he could switch from 6cyl exotica to single Manx and result was the same ..... A winner . The way it ended was just so unfair but it's life no one no matter how good a rider or driver can be immune from the idiot factor. In my mind he was the best and always will be ! Give him a knighthood . Bobh

Fully agree with Mike getting a knighthood, but what about John Surfers the only man to win world title s on 2 and 4 wheels, true living legend.
