I have just heard that 163phil has lost his life in a scooter accident in Ibiza on Tuesday just gone. It appears he slid on some debris and crashed and the handlebar mirror punctured his heart and he bled to death. His wife Liz was injured in the incident and has, at least, a broken arm but is in good spirits considering her husband bled to death in front of her. Phil came through serious surgery last year .

RIP Phil, one of the good guys...

Phil was a very competent rider.. He has owned and run a Blackbird for several years and has recently been riding a BMW GS as well
I have ridden with him and would have trusted his riding any where any time..

I know I do not have to say this but please people, when on holiday on unfamiliar roads on unfamiliar transport, do be extra careful.
If this can happen to someone who rode as good as Phil it can happen to any one of us.

Omg how awful. Having lost my partner in a motorbike accident I know the shock of a sudden loss.

Does Liz have friends/ family with her?

I believe she is in hospital in Spain still. I have no other information at the moment but we have two people in touch and will try and give updates as best I can
