God how sad to hear of Kevin's death. Every week that i read MCN i would allways look fwd to his column, i must say that some things he said i didn't allways agree on but that's how I liked it, and that's why I enjoyed him so much. When ever he talked about the old school of biking 70-80 I would hang on every word and a smile would come to my face. It's such a shame he died, if being on a bike doing what he loved and being paid to do it, (how many would love to be in such a position) was the way he died then at least there is that slight peace of mind about his death. It seems to me it never happens to the bastards in this world allways the guys that are liked.

will be sorely missed by many, if not most of whom who read his columns.

While not perhaps quite as eloquent, I always considered Kevin to be the LJK Setright of motorcycling journalism. Whatever you read, it was always clear and concise, but not always what you wanted to hear.

My condolences to all who knew him, and his family in particular.

Cant believe it...

wow what terrible news, condolences to his family and friends and all his MCN readers that knew him.

Biking can give such extreme emotions but couldnt think of a life without it.

rest in peace Ash.

every time we follow our passions, whether to get on a bike, fly a private plane, sky dive, ski fast, ride fast in an exotic car, etc... we take our lives in our hands.  that's the factor that gives it excitement, otherwise the experiences wouldn't be memorable. 

I'd like to know how the accident happened.
