RIP Ando
« on: July 26, 2020, 05:49:45 AM »
One of our 'Down Under' members has passed away.
Ando was put into a coma after a dirt bike accident a few days ago and didn't pull through.
He joined this site about 10 years ago to progress his V Twin experience and soaked up the advice and info that he got.
He built a 120RX Street Bob and changed his member name to RXBOB
He had been working FIFO with one of the mining companies in north WA and left to start his own business working on V Twins
He started out offering a mobile service, doing services and repairs and soon built a successful business, Mandurah Mobile V-Twin, doing engine builds, performance mods and repairs/services working from his workshop at home.
He has not posted here for about two years, he has been living the dream, doing what he loved.
RIP Ando   :beer:

I'm truly sorry to hear this. I had several off HTT site interactions with Troy. He was a nice guy, and a real straight shooter.

From across the globe I offer all of his friends and family my heart felt sorrow and condolences.


He's gone way too young.  :sad:

Ando lived 300 yards from my house. Was a true gentleman and an awesome bloke to call a mate. Did the work on my bikes and was a friend of mine most importantly and we rode together.  He died doing what he loved on dirt bikes and his trip to the States last year to race in old boys motocross was a real highlite for him.

As said by many, he had lots of dealings with plenty of people around the world and never a bad word said by others about him.  Going to miss him a lot 🏍
