Had to give him a hard time last year at VMD about his "SLAYER" helmet....
He wasn't aware of its heavy metal pedigree.

I sit here staring at a picture of Bodger, Chad, Alex, Patman, Rich B & I at 2007 Daytona. I can't help but be chocked up and sad at the thought I will never have another moment with him again. We all think we have more time coming, truth is we don't, and no one should waste the time you have with your friends now...

That is a pretty impressive racing record.Especially his age and what he started with as far as equipment goes.Plus only did half a season.Didn't know he was that successfull.I know in his videos his riding skills were pretty impressive.Is it to late to do some kind of dedication in this years calender?

I humbly suggest that one of Malcolm's bikes grace the month of Nov. If not this year surely next.....

ALONG with the list of his racing accomplishments!

Here's hoping that the Britbodger and his brother hook up with Tarvin and John Hewitt for some really interesting rides.

A classy gentleman and great Britbiker.

Will really miss his writing style and comments… such as: “ Course I is not a sceptic - just saying... eek
He had a way with words.

I just got back from a good ride on my Lucas equipped and styled Brit American cafe I built for a guy this summer in practice for a remembrance ride vid. Anyways I came out of garage thinking about the Britbodger and how looking at his bikes and riding on his shoulder in video my 441 did not look to tattered after all.
THEN I LOOK UP NO CHIT AND A FRIGGING LOW ENTRY SHOOTING STAR DASHED ACROSS THE SKY! It was dusk still a bit light out, I waited in case a whole gaggle was coming LOL! It went right towards Whistler, BC where it burnt out. I also thought of the sat or rocket or jet contrail UFO. If that was a "Gods of speed" UFO coming in and not a shooting star you can bet they heard about Malcolm and came to take him home to Burt Munroe's home planet. In my life that momment will never fade and I felt real happy I was on a bike today! for him and me. Got in 40k. BSA & Freight train Hardley Ableson.

Steve
-A wonderful thing when all walks have just as much admiration. He really is in that Burt Munroe class of magic guys. I'm over the valve design bum out too, anyone want a how too vid? on the lathe to make em? Long live Malcolm's energy and spirit.

What's been said is a measure of the man- I can't add more but can humbly agree . My condolences to his family and friends.

I've been a member of the Malcolm Dixon Fan
Club since the time we met at Mid-Ohio when his TR6 was still a street bike. We had breakfast together one morning and I got to know him a bit. Malcolm, we still have a spot for you in the barn!

Never met Malcolm,cos I live on the other side of the globe.But he entertained us with his numerous contributions to the forum and through his witty and friendly writings one quickly realised he was a genuine good bloke. I must admit that I have shed a tear and wish Malcolm god speed around that big race track in the sky. The world has lost a fine gentleman.....Vale Malcolm.

I didn't know Malcolm but I sure loved his bimble videos. Two things come to mind as I read all of these posts-

1. He sure chalked up an impressive recing record

2. I can't describe it - sorry.

Godspeed Malcolm.

George , Thanks for posting those pics , my old computer went tu and I lost all my pics from mid-o etc... I was just thinking about the last group photo with Bodger , just before the pic was taken I had my arm around his shoulder and squeezed his nip.... the look on his face was priceless..

A very sad bonzo

Jeff,

Your post got me thinking, somebody ought to copy as many of his videos and photos as possible, as I assume his online photo accounts will eventually go away either by non-use or non-payment of renewals over time.

Got to looking through our photo files and found this -



Mid Ohio VMD 2008 was our one and only meeting with Malcolm "BritBodger" Dixon and that was thanks to Ben (Greenspring Farm) for getting us there and introducing us.
Never did get to see him on track for, as I recall, his racing that year was curtailed by a broken crankshaft.


Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures

It's not the destination, it's the journey.
