Few years ago I met him in Motorcycle Sale Center ( MSC in PJ ), that time he is riding a Honda ST1100, I still remember he like Alfa Romeo a lot, he put a Alfa badge into his ST1000. We chat a lot about bikes and riding. We never ask each other name, but we chat so happily.

In this year I met him again in Sportbike Service Centre, this time he change his bike to BMW. This time we chat a lot about 60CSx.

He is a nice guy, what a lost in MSM and also our bike world.

Condolences to his family and loved ones.

Biker brother ride steady and safety.

One of Rickyvon's earlier postings was in MSM's Official Networking Thread in Sep 06 - http://www.malsingmaps.com/oldforum/mod ... 9419#49419 where he wrote:

"Gee I just stumbled onto this thread after 2 months of going thru the forum! Can I still catch the bus? Ya winkles

Am I also the oldest member here? Will be 56 in November. That's a couple of months away (BBQ anyone? Liz? haha!) An engineer by profession but now retired.. sort of.. running a one-leg-kick-all business to keep me occupied. Spent my entire career working in power plants the last being in the coal/gas/oil-fired TNB plant in Kapar.

GPS was a just a side interest until I found this forum.. and saw the now 17,000 members here and I thought to my myself, OMG! Where have I been all this while?

Varied interests all my life. Bikes of course as can be seen from my avatar but would you believe that I also used to moonight as a qualified hair-stylist? heh heh!

Btw my mugshot is in one of the pics I uploaded recently under My Uploads. I'll buy coffee (no beer, its bad for your health!) to the first guy who can identify me there!"

First of all, I would like to say thank you so very much, you who have touched his life in so many diverse ways, and you who remember him for the good times. He was my very favorite uncle, I will always remember him in that one moment of his life that captured his very essence in me and my sister's eyes forever:

I remember sitting on the sofa with my sis watching MTV in the living room, and he walks in the door, then sees us watching MTV and jumps on the sofa, plopping himself down hard, and starts chanting... "J.Lo! J.Lo! J.Lo!" and me and my sis look at him like he's crazy. But that's who he was, a crazy fella who did everything on a spur of the moment, and lived life to the very best extent that he could. It's a lot more than I could say for a majority of us, he LIVED. He was happy, he led a very fulfilling life, and just somehow he got called back. No offense to those who aren't of the faith, but I do believe that he was called home to God for some other purpose (think of it as a promotion by the admin from forum user to moderator ho ho ho)

Once again, thank you, for all your kind words, and I'm truly amazed and touched at the response that you have given amidst such a tragedy. Although, he might be grinning away, giving the thumbs up sign, having a great time, wherever he is, and I know he wouldn't be the kind of person to let someone get away with being sad about his death for too long. Because that's just who he is.
