Just to let all of you know that Bob died which is why he hasn't been in touch.

I'm so sorry top hear that. Did he pass away recently? Have we still a chance to pay our last respects at his funeral?

Bob was a very active member way back in the days when we all had an R1100S each, and he kept us all in shiny stainless steel bolts and stuff for our pride and joys. He took great pride in keeping his bikes immaculately clean, and generally well maintained. He was a regular at our Welsh and Yorkshire weekends with his wife Judy and they were always good company.

Rest in peace, old chum.

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Hi

So very very sad to hear this.

I assume it's Jude that's posting? If so how are you doing, well I hope given the circumstances?

Lovely guy. I thought I kept my bikes clean until I saw Bob's. He was very generous with his time and, as Paul says, provided s/s bolts and more (including titanium front axles) for the group.

RIP

This news seems to have more impact the maturer one gets. Sad news to learn of Bob Burnetts passing. My thoughts are with the loved ones he left behind.

Sadly, no. I contacted Judy via e-mail and she thanked us for our condolences but did not give any funeral details. I think we have to assume by now that we have missed it.
