    Motorbiker who died after crash is named
    A motorcyclist has died following a collision.

    The incident, which involved a motorbike and a car, took place in Rockingham Road, in Great Easton, between Market Harborough and Uppingham, at about 4.55pm on Sunday.

    The motorcyclist, named by police as 32-year-old Peter Dennis, from Northampton, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Kettering General hospital, where he later died.

    The vehicles involved were a black and silver Suzuki motorbike and a grey Peugeot 207 car.


    Detective Constable Seamus Burns said: "We are appealing for anyone with information about the collision to call us and help with our inquiries.

    "We would also like to speak to anyone who saw either of the vehicles in the area before the incident.

    "At that time, visibility would have been good and, as it was the weekend, there may have been more people on the road. "We hope this will increase the likelihood of there being a witness."

    Anyone with any information can call Det Con Burns on 0116 222 2222.

    Always had some funny or useful (or both!) posts.

    Actually read quite a few because I wanted the V6, you just don't know when your time is up.

    Never met the guy, but followed a lot of his posts and he came across as a really decent fellow.

    This is really sad and shocking news. I exchanged a few messages with Pete about the various mods he had done (and I was looking to do) and he was always helpful. I'm a biker too and as Paddy has already pointed out in a far more eloquent way than I, we know the risks but it still comes as a shock when someone you know (albeit only through this forum) dies whilst riding.

    RIP Pete and condolences to your family and friends.

    RIP Pete.

    Met him the once, when getting my BBS off him. Was a top bloke to deal with and seemed a genuinely nice guy. Shocked to hear this.

    Rest in peace Pete.
    I bought a steering wheel for my A3 from V6 Pete some time ago and he was the most helpful guy and answered every single of my questions.
    Sad news.
