The trials world in the UK were stunned on February 10th with the news of the death of Bristolian trials enthusiast Dave Norris.
Dave was the father of former Hamilton Yamaha teamster, Adam Norris who was a top UK rider in the 1990s.
In a personal tribute Trials Guru’s John Moffat said: ” I got to know Dave Norris in the 1990s as he was always around the SSDT, he chased after his rider and son Adam and we were always within speaking distance every day as Dave was a master at being in the right place at the right time, on time every time! Dave must have clocked hundreds of thousands of miles following Adam at events over the years.”
He continued: “I really got to know Dave in 2002 when I was SSDT Secretary and Adam was of course riding his umpteenth Scottish. I always enjoyed speaking with him and I just knew that he was like us all, a motorcycle sport enthusiast. He never passed me without speaking he was one of the good guys. I, along with many other friends will miss him greatly at Scottish Six Days time.”
Dave Norris’s funeral will take place on 9th March 2017 at Westerleigh Crematorium, Westerleigh Road, Bristol, BS37 8QP at 2 pm. Mourners can then attend and join the family at The Kendleshire Golf Club, Henfield Road, Near Coalpit Heath.
Our sincere condolences go to the Norris family, Delya, Lee, Jamie and Adam.
