 MORS JANUA VITAE QUIETA NON MOVERE............DEATH IS THE GATEWAY TO ETERNAL LIFE ....DONOT DISTURB THOSE AT REST

 

In Memory of Colin Leslie Wright

Born on 22nd May 1951

 Passed away 28th November 2002

 

A quiet and placid practical man Colin loved his bikes and in particular the GPZ 750 he bought from new. We had lots of fun on it and he taught me to ride by literally running at the side of the bike and telling me what to do, high up on the moors so I didn’t run into anything.

 Colin was always up for a run to the lakes and call at the pub on the way home, plenty of fag breaks in between, one of his favourite places was Devil’s Bridge long before it became the poser’s paradise it is now, when real bikers met there for a brew and to talk about their bikes and close calls on the narrow roads.

 We had many laughs and many cross words and were as different as chalk and cheese, but we were married for 32 years and had a lot of different bikes in that time, but the Kwacker was his favourite as he bought it brand new from Padgett’s and dropped it on the way home at Steeton traffic lights!!!

 I passed my test, having ridden for years on L plates, after he died as I was very depressed and needed an interest, so I bought a bike and started lessons, just to piss him off I told myself, it took some doing but finally I got there and only wished he could have been there to see me ride my own “big” bike all legal and above board.

  I am sure he would have been secretly proud and very pleased that I had done it at last, he was always patient and ready to help anyone with a problem bike related or otherwise.

Colin is sadly missed and lovingly remembered and I owe him a lot –without him I wouldn’t be biking now.
