Riden On 18/10/2017

                  Ken on the Katoomba Train Ride June 2017           Ken at Lakes Entrance on the Long Thursday                                                                                                        Ride September 2015

It is with great sorrow I inform our Riders and friends of the passing of our mate Ken Irvine on 18th October 2017, succumbing to the evils of the Black Dog of depression.

Sadly although Ken presented a happy go lucky persona it appears he had worries and stresses that no-one else could fully appreciate the extent of and this all went to feed the insidious Black Dog to a point he did not feel he had any other option.

Ken was a very jovial, good looking, very fit, affable mate and a stalwart of the Branch having been a committee member and Ride Captain and a damn fine ukelele player and BBQ Meister at our ride planning meetings always wearing interesting aprons..

Ken will be sorely missed by all of us who knew him so rest in peace Kenny you will be remembered with great affection.

The Ride for Hatman

Arriving early at the Caltex Heathcote as usual, I had a coffee, a lot of thoughts and reflections and a few tears. Riders starting arriving all in a most sombre mood. Most had heard through the grapevine or were informed by others as they arrived.

There were more tears and many hugs at the passing of Hatman and I asked all to hold hands and observe a minutes silence.

The ride was at a slow pace and proceeded to one of  Ken's favourite destinations, down to Gerringong, Geroa, Bomaderry and Cambewarra lookout, where we had a memorial photo taken with sixteen riders all comforting one another and heads bowed in remembrance (see Pic).

Everyone was deeply moved and distressed and had solace and some good thoughts about the enjoyable past times with that happy joking jester, with the golden voice and his majical ukelele. Rest in Peace our dear friend - may you now find peace with your maker. We also wish Judy and family all our commiserations and if we can help in any way please ask. 

God bless you Hatman.
