The family of Billy Bradley, the motorcyclist who died following a road collision in Alford on Saturday, have paid a heartfelt tribute in his memory.

Mr Bradley, 35, from Alford, sadly died as a result of injuries sustained in the collision on the A1104 Station Road, Alford, near the junction for the village of Well, on Saturday morning 
(November 1), which also involved a red Kia.

A statement issued by Mr Bradley’s family on Monday afternoon said: “Billy was a loving father to Elliot and Michael, and a much loved fiancé to Jayne.

“Billy had a love for his motorbikes, particularly his Ducati that was his baby. He spent many hours cleaning and polishing it just to get the perfect shine.

“He was a great man who had so many, many friends.

“Wherever he went he would meet someone he knew. His nickname, which his friends called him, was Baldilocks which he thought was highly amusing.

“He is going to be missed by all that knew him, especially his father, Peter, sister, Liz, Steve, and all his nieces and nephews.”

One of Mr Bradley’s closest friends, David Woolsey, is currently auctioning off his Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit motorbike on eBay to raise money to support Mr Bradley’s family. For further information, visit and search for item number 301378919516.

Mr Woolsey said: “Billy was a gentle giant and a nice man. You couldn’t ask for a nicer fella. It’s such a shame.”
