    Dear All,
    It is with great sadness that I have to report that my husband, Dev Patel has been killed instantly in a motorbike accident on his beloved Blade. Link below for verification:

    Family of Devish Patel from Congleton pay tribute after fatal Buxton Road motorbike crash | Stoke Sentinel

    I know that he spent a lot of time on these forums, and I wanted to let you know and also to tell you to all be safe out there.

    We will be having a motorbike procession behind the funeral cars, and I will be getting on the back of a bike (still plucking up the courage to get my license!) to pay my respects.

    Ride in Peace Dev - we all love and miss you.
    Becx Patel.

    Dear All,

    Thanks everyone for your wishes, they are greatly appreciated.

    I am finding comfort in hearing motorbikes, believe it or not! I know that he died doing what he loved, and the moment he got on his bike was the moment that he truly felt free.

    As I said before, we are hoping to have a "memorial" ride up the Cat and Fiddle, with me on the back of my friend's bike, so I will keep you posted when this might be, and if any of you wanted to meet up there, please do come along. When I am with bikers, I feel that I am with my husband. You are all a very special community and I am privileged to have been a small part of it through my husband.

    Thanks
    Becx

    This is such terrible news to read - There are enough of us from this area that I am sure we could arrange a Fireblade rideout one evening up to the Cat and Fiddle now the evenings are getting longer. Tue / Wed / Thur prob. the best to go for.

    Biking / Bikes can be cruel - I hope you are able to draw strength as you say that he truly felt 'free / at ease' on his bike while enjoying his hobby / past time as much as he clearly did.
