      Big thanks to John Henry for making a smashing job of it. Thanks also for dedicating so much of the magazine to remembering my dad, it was a really nice tribute and my mum thought it had been done well too.

      In less than two weeks it'll be two months since the old man went and it still doesn't seem possible.

        You did a great job Ian, and along with the other tributes, and John Henry's input, it was no less than your Dad deserved.

        It is such a shame that the current situation has caused the cancellation of the AGM this weekend, as it would have been a great opportunity to give him a fitting farewell. It will still happen, I am sure, when the AGM is held on it's new date, whenever that will be.

        Ian C.

          Yes I am sure that everybody in the GRA will be moved by Robs passing, a small man with such a great heart, that reached out to so many people from all walks of life not only the Greeves Riders, but all who had the privilege of associating with him over the years. Maximas

            Well said Dicky, I couldn't have put it any better. Hope you and Jo are doing OK.

            Here's a pic I'm sure you'll remember from happier times.....a great day and one I'll never forget. We had a laugh, didn't we....typical Rob, posing us with the bike display 'specials' sign when he took the second pic.....we'll all miss him mate, and will always remember him.

                  I know that I am a long way from the UK, and that air travel is restricted but I have still not received my copy of LL 212.
                  Hopefully soon.

                    Might be worth the club looking into the possibility of an online version of LL, many clubs and societies are going that way now, not say it should replace the printed copy, but an alternative which may help our overseas members keep up to date.
