    RIP - John Norwich. GWILO from BCSB.

    Sadly, John (Gwilo) as many would know him from here... has deceased from injuries sustained in an accident Monday evening in Port Coquitlam.

    I spent some time talking to John this year... and he sure was a nice man. He'll be missed at the Monday riides, pmtd etc.

    RIP John.

    So sad r.i.p. john. I drove by the road closure and saw the jeep, nothing else and had a horrible feeling a motorcycle was involved. My condolences to friends and family. Stay safe out there everyone.

    John was a truly great guy, met him for the first time while doing parking lot practice shortly after I got the v-strom. We've been chatting at rides, track days and bike nights ever since. Truly gutted that he's no longer with us.

    May he rest in peace.

    Wow- what a shock. I spoke to John a few times at Pitt Meadows, chatting about his bike (don't see too many Mana's around) and life and riding in general. A truly nice and genuine guy who will be sorely missed by all his family and his many, many friends. Very, very sad - RIP John

    From PMTD earlier this year:

    How fragile - we bags of skin, bones, and blood.
    I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.

    Really hits home, seeing these familiar usernames drop off. I did not know him in person but always thought highly of his posts here. Seemed like a great person. RIP.
