    Read the news on ADVrider.

    You either love him or hated him?
    But without a doubt, he posted some of the best Thread about China I have ever read.
    He was a great bike ride with a high level of skills.

    His experiences riding around China was second to none IMO.

    He will be greatly missed by some.

    RIP.

    I had some wonderful rides with TBracing.
    Yes, he was a very assertive character. But he also was absolutely reliable, caring for people and family and cherished the links he had established.
    And he was a great rider with all relevant spirits.

    R.I.P.

    I didn't meet him, although I heard of his passing on a wechat group for riders here in Shanghai. Sad.

    I looked at his posts on advrider. Some I had read before. He'd really gotten about in China by motorcycle.

    Found this. I beleive it's his post.

    If you scroll past the very good pictures of Shanghai, he posted stunning pictures of Nepal and Kathmandu. Really seemed like a true adventurous sort.

    Further update on ADVrider

    Very Sad, but the event leading to his passing away is very strange.


    This was posted on ADVrider

    (It is with the deepest regret that I have to inform you of the Passing of my Shanghai German brother and good friend Butch better known on this forum as TBR Racing.

    Butch passed away last week while on a ride with his beloved son Tyler in Tibet.

    It is not believed that it was due to a crash because his bike was found upright on the side stand while he was laid down on the ground bleeding (no details on that) with his spot tracker in one hand.

    The few details that I have are that Tyler got a tire puncture out in the middle of nowhere and Butch told him to wait while he went back to the van to get some tools or whatever. After more then an hour had passed Tyler road the puncture back to the van where he found his father laid out.

    TBR Racing has posted many, many trips on this forum of his adventure rides through the years and I had the pleasure of hanging out and riding with him during my years in Shanghai.

    Butch leaves behind his son Tyler and his wife Wendy and my heart goes out to both of them.

    TBR Racing will be truly be missed.

    Rest in piece my brother)
