Just a copy of a self-explaining mail conversation on Tom Loftus passing.....as he was a close friend to many of us and a regular attendee on Euro RTE's maybe I'm not the only 1 doing a cert ride in honour of Tom....there is talk in US that there may be a special version of certificate in his honour.....just so you are all aware!


Quit simple I will do an ss from Portugal to midpoint France RTE end apri and 1 on the return trip back to Portugal.simple straight forward ride.....we all ride to RTE's mostly single so all are of course free to do same on those days.You are more than welcome to join the party look at Euro RTE's under Iron Butt Forum UK website for details.....Tom used to be a frequent USA visitor of these whenever he could during his European rides..

[Esconder Texto Citado]I never had the chance to meet Tom Loftus but because many speak so highly of him I would love it if you would elaborate on "Loftus SS" so that more of us can join the celebration.

Tom Loftus Memorial
I have received some details from Tom’s wife Mona concerning his
memorial and was asked to get the word out.

Additional information will follow later but for now it looks like
it will be in Oceanside, California on April 21st.
Tom had so many friends and I know many of you will be making plans
to attend. When I know the complete details I will post again and
will also have a way for riders to RSVP to assist the family in
