Thanks for your help gents I think our wonderful site does not like iMacs and I could not move from comments to Blog, so help appreciated on a sad week and reading back on some earlier posts Ron has touched many a heart. Reading back further there has been more sad news. Take nothing for granted and stay smart and safe! Enjoy riding it keeps us sane! Gaza

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Ron's passing. To me he opitimised the spirit of Ulysses: a depth of experience and no plans to stop. He always seemed to have time and a friendly word for everyone. I'm glad he was riding till the end: if you've got to go then, like Bing Crosby on the golf course, that's the way to do it!  Vale Ron.

Ron , you were my hero . You taught me so much about riding and yet you were the nicest bloke who would do anything to help anyone in trouble . I will never forget you Ron . Keep riding in the sky . I am pleased to say I knew Ron .
