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.

Godspeed, Malcolm.

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.

A man who lived his life, and rode his bikes, the way he wanted to, way past the time that many have decided to "give it up". He didn't "give it up".

He's left an example for us ALL to follow!

Oh my.... what a sad day indeed... talk about a man, a real man, and that describes Malcolm.. And I had the (wrong) impression he was on the mend... sigh... He is already missed...

I am shocked and saddened. I never knew the man but he always seemed like one of the foundations of the forum - he was just always there. This news just doesn't seem real.

Damn, another one down for the count.

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... beerchug

I sat down with my breakfast, opened up BritBike, something caught my eye on the shoutbox and now my appetite is gone.

Malcolm Britbodger Dixon

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
