Bob is a fellow IBA member who I have met at a few Motorcycle Touring Forum events over the years. Bob is a experineced rider who always wears his gear. He was rear ended on the traffic news and in his crawl for safety ditched hs helmet ( this will stop the "where is his helmet" comments) His V Strom was obviously totaled
