Kevin Ash - Sad news...



I have been reading his articles since his days at Fast Bikes in the early nineties.





His death represents a significant loss to the motorcycle community.

Kevin Ash was a fantastic journalist. In these days where nobody wants to upset advertisers with a duff review, he was the one brave enough to stick his head up and say "actually they have got it wrong"





Sad day for Motorcycle journalism

Completely agree Pete. Kevin wrote with a sincerity and integrity sadly largely absent in modern journalism. Unafraid to court controversy and with a blinding technical knowledge Ashybelonged to thesame ilk as the late great John Robinson.





Terrible tragedy.
