Fare-well Mate

Today I gave a eulogy for my best mate Hockley k61000
We rode many rides together, two memorable rides were The Great Alpine Rd and a trip to Phillip Island Moto Gp Nearly always One of us would say Wow !
Did you see that mate!. Unfortunately i was in Indonesia when he went out for a 1-2 hour ride up our favorite road the Old Pacific HW. On his way home he overtook a silver Mercedes on a 270 deg sweeping onramp to the F3 freeway and hit metal road barrier..Fare-well Mate.
