Don Tilley killed in motorcycle crash. Wife critical...

Postby HawkeyeGL1200 » Mon Sep 01, 2014 4:32 pm



I know it isn't Goldwing related, but the man was well known and loved throughout the motorcycling world... and he was a rider and lover of motorcycles for many years...

Don Tilley, the legendary race tuner and Tilley Harley-Davidson owner from Statesville, North Carolina, died Friday from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville according to newspaper reports and his dealership’s website. He was 78. It was also reported that Tilley’s wife, Robinette, was riding with her husband and was critically injured when their motorcycle left the parkway at mile post 394 in Buncombe County, according to U.S. park rangers.

I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Sorry to hear this, I hope his wife has a quick recovery.
I’d rather be Riding my Motorcycle thinking about God
Than sitting in church thinking about my Motorcycle
