Received very sad news just now; our good friend at BritBike.Com and in AHRMA roadracing, Malcolm, has passed the checkered flag of his life.
There will be a Memorial for Malcolm at the Forrest Park Funeral Home at 12800 Westheimer (Houston, TX) just West of Dairy Ashford next Wednesday, November 17, from 6pm to 9pm.
Here's the BMOA Plan. We meet at Spaghetti Western at 6:00 PM...sooner if you like. We raise a few glasses to Malcolm, and then at 7PM we have a motorcycle convoy to the funeral home, arriving en masse at about 7:30 to pay our respects. So there you have it. BE THERE!!! Alan - Sorry to cut in Paul.

That is heartbreaking to hear. I had a feeling something was wrong since he had not posted in several days. He was very weak at Barber, and I'm so glad that I had a chance to speak to him. He leaves behind many friends worldwide, and this forum will never be the same. Greg
Another real rider has left us in the dust, thanks Malcolm I gotta stop I can't see the screen. I just sent him a vid last week,he never whined. A real man, here he is taping at the Gap, watch his lines. Put on some tunes or know what your hearing is one fast triple and smile.
Malcolm was a good goose, full of common sense and he knew when to share it.
Never met him but he's just another man on the "Board" that I thought I could get along with. Gave him a bad time about that old seat cover on his green Triumph. Loved it when he buzzed by the Snarley Doodlesons in his video.
Here's to you Malcom.. and all the nurses and umbrella girls you lusted after...

Glad to have met Malcolm at Mid Ohio and really had a nice chat with him. Sad to think he is gone.... I hope he was not too uncomfortable..... Thats the most we can hope for sometimes... I also raise my glass in honor of a great man...
I sat down with my breakfast, opened up BritBike, something caught my eye on the shoutbox and now my appetite is gone.

Although we met frequently here on this illustrious forum we only came face to face once, at Mid Ohio two years ago. Malcolm is a gentleman from County Durham, the Land Of The Prince Bishops in North East England who never forgot his roots and was proud of his heritage.
Malcolm, your spirit lives on
