Just received a video stating that John had passed. Although some of his methods were not up to the standards of many here, he did know how to keep his Triumph on the road. I learned a lot from his videos and will miss him.

RIP Mr Plews..........you will be missed.

If I had to go on a trip around the world on a motorcycle........I would have wanted him along. Kind of fellow who could fix anything.

Another one bites the dust.
As for 'standards' at least he rode his bike frequently and maintained it at
a realistic cost. I thought he was a good old boy.

Saddened to hear that, condolences to his family and friends. His videos were helpful as I worked to get my first old Triumph back on the road,

Really sad to hear, I used his videos as entry guidelines when I got my first Triumph 10ish years ago. RIP

...the methods could not be so good but because he is a rider not a pro mechanic however; he (and all ) is a REAL rider and real motorcyclist with gobs of km and that is what is important in my book
Theoretical and technicians...I do not see them on the road anyway
He pioneered Ytube with home made solutions and helped plenty of People to really see what going on inside a Triumph motor and free.
