Davo's supporters Down Under and elsewhere are in a state of shock and devastated by the news that he hit a deer less than 3 hours from the finish and apparently (details sketchy) has suffered a head injury.

Our thoughts are with you for a speedy recovery Davo.

The response from the Australian bike community shows the stature Davo holds among them  Thumbsup

Jules, if there's anything we can do for the family, just let us know.

I just received the news in an Email, and logged on here for more news.

"Davo a real estate agent well known as a long distance rider and founder of the farriders website was fulfilling a long held ambition to compete in the Iron Butt Rally in the USA and Canada he was going to ride 1000 miles per day for 11 days and had just entered back into the US and was 100 miles from the finish when he hit a deer and suffered severe head injuries and died in hospital, his family are now awaiting the return of his remains , he left a wife and 4 children and 1 grandchild, I am sure the hearts of the motorcycling community go out to his family and friends.
I believe that there will be a large motorcycle guard of honour when he is returned
 
Davo was an Aussie bike riding legend"

RIP Davo.  Those who have know him through the forums are farriders are shocked by the news.

I have no doubt there will be many riders there.

This was sad news. I live 100 miles from where he had his accident.

Everyone is very sorry for the loss of your countryman.
