Wayne Kelley, 40, known as Ned to his friends, lived at Pelynt near Looe and the crash occurred while he was on his way to work at Devonport Naval Base, where he was employed as chief petty officer air engineering technician.

Mr Kelley was born in Singapore but his family moved to Cornwall when he was four.

He was educated at Polperro Primary School and then at Looe Secondary School before starting his engineering and maritime career.

At 16, he was heavily involved in the building of The Lady of Tregue, a yacht that has sailed the world.

He joined the Royal Navy as an air engineer in 1986.

He was a keen sportsman with passion for fitness, which took him from the rugby fields of Liskeard and Looe to the field gun tracks of Earl's Court, to the Fleet Air Arm RFC and on to Brickwoods Field Gun.

Mr Kelley, who leaves a nine-year-old son Kyran, also enjoyed running, mountain biking and hang gliding.

His family said: "Ned had a full life although it has been cut short. To the world, Ned was one person but to many people, Ned was their world."

The crash occurred on the A374 between Torpoint and Trerulefoot with a series of bends known as the Torpoint Twisties.

The ten-mile stretch of road is popular with bikers and is featured on motorcycling websites.

Police are appealing for anyone with information about the collision to contact them on 08452 777444 quoting police ref. 665 220707
