Some of you will know Bob Lewis - a great guy and TTR250 rider. Bob has given up trail riding at 72 yoa but still rides his TTR on the tarmac.

Here is a short photo tribute to him.

Bad news I am afraid. "Bouncing" Bob passed away at 4.45pm yesterday from Corona virus.

Bob had difficulty breathing so was taken in to hospital on Tuesday after calling 111. Bob and his wife Val had been self isolating for 3 weeks and they couldn't think where he caught it from. They went out for a meal before they isolated but, other than that, they had no idea of the source. Bob was in his late 70s. 

He was a regular visitor here at Exton every Wednesday morning for a coffee and chat until the DVLA took his licence when he got a cataract a couple of months ago.

He is the first person I know to catch the virus and, sadly, the illness had the worst possible ending.

I know that Bob was much loved by those who knew him and was spectacularly (on occasions) entertaining on trail rides hence the nickname "Bouncing" (aka Badger) Bob. If you look at the original post on this thread you will see what I mean.

RIP Bob - some good memories matey.

Brian
