Some of you may have read comments from "MZ Mark" on the blog over the years, and you may also recall his talent as a photographer when he he entered several stunning photos in the 2009 Winter Photo Competition. I found out today that Mark passed away on Monday, after suffering a heart attack, aged 44.
I pinched the following from "Adler" on the realclassic forum, I hope no one minds.

Mark recently stood down as Classics Officer with the MZ Riders Club, having
served in that position for a decade or more and helped countless members with
overcoming problems and assisting them with getting old MZ's back on the road.
Those bikes, on the road, where they belong is probably as fitting a tribute to
Mark as I can think of.

Mark's winning shot of his 1974 BMW R75/6 with a Russian Dnepr
chair, taken somewhere near Huddersfield.

And he kindly posed to show off his prize - no, not the TS 150 trail bike, the Cubbie tee shirt!

RIP fellow blogger -

I've enjoyed his postings on the RC board for the last couple of years. A nice chap and a sad loss

That is sad news. Was just reading his blog the other day. Too young, thoughts to his family and friends. Hairy Larry
