Tributes

A number of friends have left tributes to Chris on Facebook.

“I’ve been fortunate to have someone just like that but yesterday I lost my amazing friend to a tragic accident.

“It’s a very scary feeling indeed to feel lost as a grown up. Will miss you loads Chris Gough and will never forget you.”

“A true biker and gentleman RIP.”
