Leon Cupit has ridden on
« on: April 30, 2021, 05:58:08 PM »
As many of you know by now, we lost a great mate and friend of OzSTOC last week in Leon. Leon was involved in a motorcycle accident which he sadly did not survive.
I will be representing this Club at his funeral in Hobart on Monday 3rd May 2021. I extend an invitation to all members who may be able to make it.
Leon was a wonderfully kind and generous bloke with an amazing sense of humour as wide as his grin. He helped more people and clubs within the motorcycling community than just about anyone else. He was an active member for the Black Dog Institute, Hard Arse Riders, Motorcycle Tourism Tasmania, All Aussie Riders and numerous more.
We remember him fondly as being our special guest speaker at our Tassie OzSTOC National Rally in 2019. He left us in stitches with his funny stories and experiences. He was also a wealth of knowledge on all things motorbike!
Leon will be sorely missed and is absolutely irreplaceable. We send our sincere condolences to his family. Ride on mate.

Always sad to lose one of our community but doubly tragic when it is the result of an accident. Thoughts and prayers go out to the family. RIP Leon.
