A better way to go than lying waiting on some awful cancer eating you from the inside out.
Respect to the man and condolences to his family.
RIP John,You will be greatly missed by many. Condolences to the family
Is it helpful to speculate or post unverified information about the cause (byline)? Conditions earlier in the day had been wet, and areas under the trees still would have been. Wet patches make for treacherous conditions (I speak from experience BTW).
Better to simply pay our respects to a great racer and a true gentleman than to repeat "alleged" rumours. Thank you.
RIP John. My thoughts and best wishes to the family and friends of this wonderful man.
Don't forget to do a stoppie as you get to the gates and a wheelie as you are waved through.
I first met John in the very late seventies when i first started racing with NGMCC.He was the nicest and quitest,most polite person i have ever met.He rode the wheels off that Matchless,not a knee stuck out anywhere and both wheels always in line,with his head glued to the tank.He would just clear off into the distance leaving the "new fangled" multi cylinder bikes in his dust !
His Matchless wasnt the quickest thing on the track,he just never shut off for the corners and carried so much speed through that by the time you had exited the corner he was already halfway down the next straight !
A huge talent that will be greatly missed by all,Rest In Peace John Goodall.
I have every admiration for John he was still racing the TT circuit at 67at high speed. I still ride at 68 years but I have not got the guts to ride faster than 70/75 on a straight motorway.
I salute you sir.
It is so sad to hear of the loss of a gentleman like you John, ride safe for evermore. R.I.P. all owr thought are with your family.
