Celebration of Life and KTM SMT

May 1st, 2013

It’s a strange subject heading but one Vince would appreciate!

This Saturday saw the Celebration of Life ceremony for Vince Kerr who died just over a year ago of a heart attack, 25th April 2012. It was an exceptionally well attended do with his three girls being brave enough to speak about their father, his son providing the muscle and his wife making sure everyone enjoyed themselves. It really was a celebration!

Vince was a larger than life character, a very successful man who had turned from business to devote his time to his family and his passions: motorcycles and fishing. He was a massive part of Spyder Club, finding the time to use us to the full and still ride his vast collection of classic and modern bikes, 25 at one point and never under 20!

He spent much time looking into how to progress Spyder Club and had, a month before his death, shown his interest in investing in the business. He had many new friends within the club as it had become a big part of his life.

So it was very appropriate that so many members took the time to say goodbye on Saturday and show their respects to Vince and his family.

Why the KTM SMT, because I rode it the long way to Monmouth for the ceremony. Via another members house in Bristol for a night out on Friday with a few other guys and then up to Hereford on Saturday evening, before turning for home on Sunday.  In all 450 miles and a massive smile. Vince would have loved it, agile, punchy and enough power to be quick whilst needing to work it to get it at it’s best, perfect! We’ll review this bike properly another time.

We’ll miss you Vince, as your son said, he wishes Spyder Club still came to deliver bikes, and as Hubert said, what a great club Spyder Club has become, so much respect for one another, you’ll always be a part of it!

We miss you big man, ride safe wherever you are!!
