Like most here, we met Tones through WOTI, swapped lots of emails for a couple of years, tried some long-distance support (real long-distance) when his marriage went south and had a great time 'talking' with him.
When he sold the Wing and bought the Valk and had his big garage sale over a mailing list, we bought his Hopnel pouches - along with those came a couple of caps and other nick-nacks - a sure sign of a man's generosity.
We've dropped out of the mailing-list round over the past year or so, but often wondered about the health and well-being of a few of the 'characters' that came together on WOTI. Tones was one of those people we often thought of - like, every time we hooked a helmet and threw on a cap.
For the last few years, we've been trying to get to one riding event or another in the US and catch up with the colourful people who ride because it makes them whole. We haven't managed to put that trip together and now we'll never have that chance to verbally duel with Tony - and that saddens us greatly.
Vale Tones, the world is a sadder place, another rider has died.
