Police Scotland named the man killed in the accident a Plaidy yesterday as John Ogston.
John who was known as Jocky, was 54 and lived in the Banff area and worked for Fisher Offshore in Oldmeldrum.
His wife Lesley said
Jocky was born in his leathers, and motorcycles have been a huge part of his life since he was 16 years of age. He loved his current job at Fisher Offshore in Oldmeldrum and helped out in the evenings at Lesley’s bakery in Whitehills.
His whole family is absolutely devastated at the loss of Oor Jocky who had a big heart and forced everyone around him not to take life too seriously. His many friends and family will know what a great loss to the world he will be but he will be in our hearts and minds forever.
Sandy Duncan, Councillor for Turriff said
It is very upsetting to hear that there has been another accident, another tragedy.
