he had a big one at tandragee i seem to remember years ago early nineties?, nearly splitting himself in two. he did come back to the roads for a few years. not sure what hes doing now. didnt he have a red helmet with yellow dots on it?
Dave is living on the Isle of Man and running a very good business near the airport, with his wife.
He is still riding bikes and is competitive in local enduro events in the sportsman categories.
To survive what he did and to still be riding in tough enduros on the Island he is doing remarkably well.
Hi, I am Dave's ex-fiancee, we went out together from1989 to 1994. I saw him win in the TT in 1990 and 1991. I remember the day he phoned me when he crashed, he said not to worry and he thought he'd broken his ankle. I flew out to see him and soon realised how serious it was. I stayed in the hospital for the first week and stayed in Lisburn with Kenny and Kathleen for months, visiting him every day. I was with him in the air ambulance that flew him back to Bradford and then he was transferred to Halifax. We moved in together and got engaged in 1993. We split amicably in 1994 after we grew apart. I haven't seen him for years as I moved to Derby and got married and I heard he got married too though I didn't know he'd moved to IOM till I read this. I have very fond memories of our time together.
Dale, i was at work the other day in our wahrehouse, and knock me over with a feather, who should walk through our loading bay doors but Dave Leach!!! i couldnt believe it, he has a business over here and was dropping something off, i had a very quick chat with him ( he was my fav rider as a kid), the lads at work say he pops in every month or so, i will ask at work the name of his business or pass on your message next time he comes in
