The Silkriders wish to convey their condolencies to the families of Neil and Carol Bishop, so tragically killed in a road accident in Turkey. Without knowing anything apart from what’s been published about their horrific accident, we have often recounted at the end of a riding day through these parts on how many near misses each of us has had. By far the most common horror story is of vehicles coming the other way (sometimes passing themselves) and expecting motorcycles simply to get off the road. This is too often the norm on the wild roads of Turkey through to India.
We are pleased to see the rest of the Bishop’s group continuing on their dream trip and our thoughts are with you as you complete the mission you all set out upon.
