Ken Wootton's family thanks motorcycle industry for support

Following the recent passing of renowned motorcycling journalist, Ken Wootton, his family have released the following statement:

We’re all deeply saddened and shocked by the news of Ken’s death so suddenly while overseas – it’s hard to believe he’s no longer with us.

It’s been a horrible day, but we have been completely overwhelmed at the kindness of all who knew Ken.

We have been touched by the outpouring of support from those who tell us how Ken assisted them in their careers or about his generosity in the sharing of his knowledge and his passion for motorcycling, and on the many comments about his sense of humour and the warmth of his friendship.

We’ve had so many calls from people who knew him; reflecting on what he meant to them and it has been a great help.

We’d like to thank the entire motorcycling fraternity for their support, it means a lot during this incredibly difficult and sad time.

Details of Ken’s funeral/memorial will be released once arrangements have been made.
