Just after 10 pm Saturday night 2019-05-11, Darren was involved in a collision incident in San Francisco while riding his motorcycle. The other vehicle was a BMW X3. Sadly he died of his injuries after being taken to hospital. I've not heard any other details.
Darren was the Service manager at Rockridge Two Wheels in Oakland. Many if not most Bay area Vespa owners will have known him as the friendly face of scooter service.
Mrs jimc (Ivana Tinkle of this forum) worked alongside him while she ran Vespa Walnut Creek some years ago - we have lost a good friend.
