trade shocked by double tragedies

The trade has been shocked by the deaths of two prominent figures in motorcycle accidents this week.

Keith Blair was killed while on a riding holiday in Scotland on Saturday and Mark Sears, Dunlop’s Product Support Manager UK Motorcycle, died on Tuesday while assisting at the launch of a new product in Spain.

Meanwhile, tributes are arriving at BDN for Keith (pictured top), who died in a three-vehicle accident close to Borlum Farm, Lewiston, near Drumnadrochit, on the A82 Inverness to Glasgow road.

Keith, from Uttoxeter, was 73.

BDN extends its sympathy to both families, their friends and colleagues.

Full obituaries and tributes in the May issue of BDN.

Keith Blair’s family is asking for family flowers only and has arranged a collection for Oxfam in Keith’s name. Contributions can be made at
