A Circular Head man killed in a tragic motorcycle crash over the weekend has been remembered as a "reserved, blokey-bloke" who loved his mates and his family more than anything.
Smithton's Christopher Darren "Doddy" Dodd, 55, died on Sunday after crashing his motorbike into a tree at Scotchtown.
Mr Dodd was born in Burnie, but lived in Circular Head his whole life.
His daughter, 23-year-old Melissa Dodd, said her father had been a quiet and loving person.
"Those that were close to him, like immediate family, knew him and knew that almost more than anything he loved his mates," she said.

"He loved his Jim Beam too ... and St Kilda and AC/DC."
She said Mr Dodd had worked a few different jobs over the years, including the leading hand at the Smithton McCain factory, and driving a pea viner on farms all over the state.
"He used to take us along and we used to get garbage bags and we'd be picking peas and eating them all as he worked - we weren't really supposed to," she laughed.
"We did a couple of trips to Queensland as a family, he was always very 'hands on' and a bit of a daredevil."
She said he had been participating in a charity poker run when he died.
"He'd always loved his bikes, he'd been riding bikes since he got his bike licence at the age of 16," she said.
"He was very experienced and he knew the roads as well as anyone."
She thanked the Circular Head community for showing tremendous support to the family.
"Just remember to live life to the fullest, love those around you, because you never know how short life will be," she said.
Mr Dodd is survived by his ex wife, Christina Kingston, his daughters, Hannah and Melissa, and his grandchildren.
