Aberdeen KTMer fallen

Postby The Gin Reaper » Thu Jun 03, 2010 9:22 am

Have just opened the local paper in Aberdeen to find that one of our KTM bretheren has tragically fallen. Killed last night on the A957 near Stonehaven, it says in the paper that he was in his 40's and that he died at the scene having been in collision with a car. From the picture it looks like he was riding an SMT....... I do hope it was nobody from here.....very sad...

It looks bizarre, such minimal damage for a death. I wonder if he landed badly or hit one of those trees. Awful. Awful, terrible news.

Yeah I was thinking that. Hardly any damage at all. Just goes to show you I guess. Let's be careful out there guys.

RIP fellow SDer.
