    Unhappy Bob Perkins.

    Just caught wind on Johnny B's facebook page that Bob passed away earlier this week... That all I know. I'm sure Johnny B will post more details as they come in.

    Rest in peace, Bob

    My first racebike had been previously owned by Bob. One hell of a guy. RIP Bob

    I'm still waiting for further details from Cathy Curtin. She's the one who broke the news to me. I was just on the phone with him a few weeks ago. I was trying to convince him to show up at the banquet.

    This picture is about 10 years old.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Re: Bob Perkins.

    This is terrible news. There was a void in the the paddock last season without him around, such a great guy to have around the garage.

    I first started on an EX500 back in 2003 and he was there to give a newbie some much appreciated advice.

    I was glad to see him suit up again and line up on the ULSB grid with us on a newer EX500.

    You'll be missed Bob. RIP.
