Farewell to Paynie
A measure of the immense popularity of the late Brian Payne is the number of friends and acquaintances who turned out for his funeral and the subsequent wake. Former racing rivals, engineering associates and friends in general celebrated the life of one of the real personalities of Australian motorcycling. These photos were sent to us by Barry Taylor.
