This was in our last newsletter (No-246 Jan/Feb) but thought I would post it here just incase anyone missed it in there, Doug was a long standing member of the Double LL Club and sadly passed away in November 2018.
Doug had great energy and zest for life, a strong personality, direct and pragmatic, a true Patriot of this country.
A man with a cool head, a tremendous sense of humour, also humility someone you could put your trust in, a real gentleman.
His great passion was motorcycles, he has a staggering amount of achievements. On the choice of motorcycle for the met police, representing his country in the Scottish six day trials, rode with the Royal Signals white helmets display team. I’m not sure his achievements will ever be equalled and still riding better than most of us into his eighties.
Doug was a gifted mechanic and engineer with a superb depth of knowledge, spending many hours in his workshop never happier than when making parts for restoring his classic bikes.
His 1935 Triumph Tiger 90 now saved for the nation and now in the Isle of man museum, his beautiful Ducatis now in private collections.
Along with friends including the motor strada lads here today we’ve ridden thousands of miles with Doug, his trips are legendary, superbly well organised across all of the UK, Northern Ireland and Europe, you never had a bad day or trip in his company.
Sadly missed by all.
