Ian 'Fly' Robertson, VROC 36831, Passed away at 2:00AM today after battling cancer for some time. We met up with him on a couple of our southern DUVROC jaunts - a very interesting chap and well known artist in NZ. An abiding memory is how he could ride his drifter at speed, effortlessly, wearing white gumboots, and an old swandri jacket. With a symbolic rat on his front engine guard. Hoping Toa will find the pic...
