“He rode with us to Spain and Belgium every year and to Scotland - and he was the nicest man you could ever meet.
“He always had a smile for everyone and nothing was too much trouble.”
Mr Hall, known as “Slim”, ran his own motor cycle business in Sheffield, restoring old models and building custom bikes to order.
For his final journey, riders assembled at Woolley Edge services on the M1 and travelled in convoy along the motorway before forming the funeral cortege, on a route that took in the locations of several of his favourite pubs.
Mr Hall and his wife, Lindsay, lived at Grenoside.
