A group of us in Scotland from the Bikers Oracle RSV forums have been getting together this summer for ride-outs.
On one yesterday evening, one of our friends, Craig, was tragically killed in a collision with a 4 wheel drive vehicle.
Although I had only met him a handful of times, Craig was a fantastic guy and an accomplished rider. He was one of the nicest blokes you could hope to meet.
Craig was a Paramedic and we both found a sort of common bond very quickly with myself being in the Fire Service. In his job, he gave an immeasurable amount to the public and his community and was highly regarded and respected by his workmates and everyone else who knew him.
Although I've witnessed many road accidents, I'm finding this one is not something I can deal with easily.
He will be sorely missed.
My heart goes out to Claire his wife and all his family, friends and collegues in the Scottish Ambulance Service in Tayside.
There is a thread over on the Bikers Oracle RSV section if anyone wishes to leave their condolences:-
RIP Craig.........you will be forever in our thoughts and memories mate.
