Wicky's bike

Post by MacV2 »

Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners!
Iain McConnell · 9h ·
Evening everyone, just like to introduce myself. I am the proud new owner of John Hepburn's storm. Only got it delivered yesterday as I'm in Northern Ireland. I didn't know John and joined here after he sadly passed but can see he was a fountain of knowledge. My plan is to get the bike road worthy and enjoy it. I was thinking that in memory of John I would like to get a decal designed for the bike but am open to other suggestions/ideas.

Great news, I bet Wicky would have liked the idea of his Storm starting a new life in Ireland and by the sounds of it, the new owner plans to look after it
Here for a good time, not a long time.

My favorite photo of John. Maybe this, minus background, with John “Wicky” Hepburn and the year of birth to passing?

I’ve talked to Ralf, he says about 5euros with a 30 count minimum. What say ye?

Mac, That is great news I agree :D

I'd be open to any suggestions for the new owner regarding a tribute decal for Wicky :thumbup:
