Man I was gutted when I got the text from Cappo giving me the sad news.

I didn't know Dan all that well unfortunately, he liked to do his own thing at meetings, but I had a few chats with him about bikes, racing and welding his sub frame back on, somebody had done a serious shortening job on it in the past! He'd asked me for some advice a few times on his bike and came over to report back on how it had gone.

Nice fella, always seemed to be smiling and enjoying his racing. He seemed to be making a good job of getting his head around this racing lark, and the bike was evolving into a good TZR.

You'll be missed mate, R.I.P Dan

Can only echo those thoughts Steve, had a couple of chat's with him at brands, saying how nervous we were at our first brands meeting. I do remember he had a great big smile when i spoke to him later in the weekend.
Terrible shame, puts thing's in perspective.

R.I.P Dan.

I read this last night and still can't believe it.
My thoughts go out to Dan's partner, family and friends.
Dan was an instantly likeable character, always smiling and keen as mustard to learn. His racing was improving and he was really enjoying getting his bike sorted.
Very sad news.
Race In Peace mate.

Bumped into him a few times in the paddock and always had a good chat with him. Always sad to lose one of us :(

He was probably the most laid back of all YPMers; RIP Dan.
