My condolences to all of the guys on here that were close to him. to his family and his friends.
I didn't know him but he seemed like a top bloke ready to give help wherever he could.

Don't worry about it, I've got vinyl in stock, it'll only cost me a bit of time.

Nick had a passion for life, bikes, KTM's and our forum. A truly great guy. He was always great company and would always help fellow riders with help and advice.
Nick you will be missed and never forgotten.

Something like "Nick you will be missed by all on the Superduke Forum, at Cadwell and in Almeria. Godspeed Friend"

The best epitaph I ever read said “He did what he could, with what he had, where he was” I think it was first said by Teddy Roosevelt and one day I hope it could be said about me.

Not very bike related though. Brevity is often the best route. How about “Much Missed And Never Forgotten – Thanks

As it happened on his SD it could be something along the lines of "He died when he was more alive than ever."

I emailed this to put on the card

Nick you had a passion for life and bikes. And for those of us lucky enough to get to know you and meet you through Superduke.net you will always be missed. Godspeed friend.

Amy emailed saying thanks to everyone. She cant wait to see pics from Crashfest tribute laps. She is still going to be at Almeria. I"m guessing Steve is going on his Blade again. Will be a very emotional trip.

I am shocked. Very sad news.

I am very moved by the demonstration of feeling from all members responding to this thread.

Very glad to be a part of this group. Could happen to any of us.

I really wish I could get to the funeral tomorrow, will certainly be there in spirit at lunchtime.

Glad to hear that Amy is still going to Almeria, as Klinck says it will be a special trip. Really looking forward to paying our respects at Cadwell too
