RIP my friend, Geoff

He had health issues, but was almost his usual happy go lucky Sunday - organizing a weekend trip for the UK Monster Owner's Club.

I met Geoff, geoffduc here, in Misano for the World Ducati Week in 2010. I wouldn't have gone if it wasn't for his advice and planning effort. The glue in our Misano group.

Geoff and I would converse via pm, and email. He was a wonderful man.

He hinted several times recently that he wasn't well, most recently in a thread in the General forum here.

RIP Geoff. I'll miss you.

Nicest guy, sent me an IoM T-shirt out of the goodness of his heart.

Ride on, Geoff, and when you see Dolph and Rat and any of our fallen DMF brethren, buy 'em a pint or three.

Say hi to Nicky, we miss him terribly.

God damnit!! RIP brother, you’ll be sorely missed. We spoke several times on the phone. I remember the day he FaceTime called me, and was excited as a kid with a new toy. He never could get the posting pictures thing down, and would have me post pics for him that he’d email. Never got to meet him in person, but I know he was a great guy. He called me the day Dolph was killed and it hurt him deeply. I won’t forget him.

RIP mate. Was recently conversing via email and under the impression that things were on the up Cry. An ornament to this community.
Our condolences to his family and friends.

A finer, nicer, more enthusiastic man you will never find. He remained a Monster enthusiast well into his later years, and always promoted the Ducati brand.

He passed recently from natural causes.

(EDIT: from another merged thread, so it looks confused - leaving it here anyway)


I don't like this. I object. I protest. make the beast with two backs!

, but also a big fat THANK YOU for the memories.

I'm Norwegian and Geoff was my friend despite the distance. He made my first long ride to Italy happen in 2010. I've since been in the mountains, Misano and between every year. Thanks, Geoff.

From now on ... like his, only clean and heavily modified bikes in heaven.
