Yes, sorry to hear.  I'm not familiar with the name; did he use a forum name we might know?

His forum user name was "bob bezin"

https://forum.classicmotorworks.com/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=1109

Here's a pic of him and a few other forum members at the Rally on the River after tearing up a UCE for the weekend. Note the date the pic was posted, a year before they sold em here in USA.
Kevin brought a test mule to the rally rolled it out of the trailer, put the key in it and said "have at it". So we did.
Bob was a fixture at all of the Rally on the Rivers and all of the CMW Lanesboro rally's as both a "everything motorcycle" enthusiast and entertaining us with his guitar, mandolin and singing.

Oh, right, now I remember.  I "strolled" through some of his posts, he even commented on a few of mine!  :-[

Thanks for the reminder!

Bob was a great guy. Always seemed positive and was certainly a died in the wool RE enthusiast. He and his wife Philothea entertained us musically often. Thanks for posting Chris. (Nice picture BTW). Long time ago.

Very sorry to hear .

I knew Bob quite well, and he and Philothea even stayed at my house once.

He was one of the first Fireball owners, and I think it was Fireball #5, IIRC. We will miss him.

Condolences to his family.
Home of the Fireball 535 !
