There is a report of a foreigner's death on a Honda 750 in another Phuket publication. Unfortunately Thaivisa is not permitted to copy or mention that source.

It's best not to mention any name until confirmed and in case the family or friends have not yet been notified or do not wish public discussion. Thank you.

Got this info from another source. Simon Grant, Marine manager. RIP I hope it's not your friend.

Not allowed to post link.

Cheers, Rick

It is indeed Simon. He was a friend of ours - his family has been informed and his brother is flying out.

It is in the press but we can not give credit to the press so it can not be named.

However since I know from other sources and before it was public I think it is ok to mention it as his family has already been notified. However I did not mention it in TV until it was public.

It is very sad but Mr Simon Grant the manager of Ao Por Marina was killed on his bike. I do not know the other details but he was rushed to the hospital and friends were there when he died a few hours later.

Edit: Oh just saw the other posts....

Jeez, I just realised that Simon = siinthai, he didnt post much here but he was a GT-Rider regular.

Brings it even closer to home.

Yup. He was often posting on GT for people to ride with. What makes it worse is that no-one really knows what happened. Another friend of ours, Steve, was riding with him on Saturday and he was complaining that the front brake on the Africa Twin was acting up. Perhaps it locked and folded on him. Think I'll give more thought to checking over the BMW before I hop on it in future. This happened so close to home too - even the small trips can be deadly.

An extremely hard time for family and friends.

My thoughts are with you at this time.
