An 83-year-old man who died in a collision near Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds last month has been named as Rupert Clarkson.
Rupert, who lived in Droitwich in Worcestershire, died in a two-vehicle collision on the B4081 Campden Road between Mickleton and Chipping Campden on Sunday 29 October.
He had been travelling on his KTM 390 Duke motorcycle at the time of the collision.
In a statement, his family said: "Rupert absolutely loved riding his motorbike – it was a lifelong passion of his.
"He was part of two clubs that were close to his heart, the Worcester Motorcycle Club and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
"Every Sunday he would meet up with other riders and they would ride out together, he had a huge amount of love for the clubs and his fellow riders.
"Rupert was a loving husband, father of two and grandfather to three children.
"He was a well established mechanic back in the 1970s and 1980s around the Vale of Evesham, and he then moved onto Droitwich to start a garden machinery business with his son.
"His relaxing downtime was the love of gardening as he loved growing fuchsias with his wife. He always enjoyed spending time with his family, friends and dogs.
"Rupert will be missed dearly by all of his family and friends."
The family has asked for any donations in Rupert's memory to be made to Great Western Air Ambulance, which covers Gloucestershire: https://greatwesternairambulance.com/
