I have had several members ask in the last few weeks if I know where Inge is, unfortunately the answer is no I don't.
He hasn't posted here since June which is very unlike him. I know he is a member of the Motobrick and Flyingbrick forums so would any here who are members on either of those forums please enquire there if his whereabouts are known.  Inge K is his forum name in both places.

I noticed that last week, him missing, as well as Alan (Ajays), our old mate from the UK. Both great members with much to offer.

Through a Google search, I see he last posted to BMW MC KLUBBEN on June 6 2018.  Was quite active in that particular thread, as I can see, but the discussion continued through September without any followups from him.

This is concerning.

I have racked my brain trying to think of a way to find out what has happened but there had been total silence from the 6th June on all the forums that I know he frequented.
We may never know.

No reply from SMS as yet, I will try the number over the next few days and report back.

I can't seem to find his address even though I stayed with him in July 2015. I think I had it stored in the forum email system which is soon full so probably now deleted.

I've scoured his name (the parts of it we know) and his town of Fredrickstad Norway, as well as the county of Østfold, through various and obvious searches this morning with no luck. By coincidence there is a famous Inge K. (by the name of Hansen) from that town who was a handball professional and who now runs a large bank. I hate to say it but I looked through the 2018 obits, as well as court records and others, but not knowing his surname makes it difficult. Not being even remotely fluent in Norwegian does not help, either. It is important to note that some people are just quiet, going about their lives and unfussed about things happening in the outside world.

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in hoping his computer is broken, or that he is taking a breather from spending time on the net.

I tried calling him today but his mobile comes back as not in service. Crying or Very sad

I held on calling until I was in the office. I have a Nordic colleague in work and Inge's spoken English is not the best.

I also have mislaid his address but will keep looking.

His knowledge and willing contribution to this forum was immeasurable - a true VIP.

Deepest condolences to his family.
