A group of Mr Ragg's friends called 'the Sunday bikers' have donated over £2,000 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, who attended the scene, in his memory.

They wrote in tribute: "We lost our friend. Time may heal the anguish but the loss will be with us forever."

The other biker killed was Michael 'Mick' Lynas, 57, an offshore engineer from South Kilvington, near Thirsk. Mr Lynas was riding with his daughter Eve, who was behind him on her own motorcycle when the collision happened and was not injured.

The Lynas family set up a Justgiving page in his memory and have so far raised over £6,400 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
