So, farewell then, Ivan

After a lovely wedding at the weekend, today was a little more sad. Our mate Ivan, who was so often part of our trio on the Little Bikes, succumbed to bowel cancer on 23rd May and his funeral was today at Macclesfield Crematorium.
Bye bye old mate. We will miss you as what will now be the 'Two Little Bikes' venture out on our adventures, rather than the three it used to be.
Here are some pictures to remind us.

The three 'little bikes' before I upgraded mine to a 125 Innova (still little!). Ivan on the left with his SS50, me with my then C90, and Malc's Townmate at Northwich Pumping Station, one of our 'great days out'.
