Lance Moore, 27, was a member of a fan group that re-enacted scenes from the movie Mad Max. Lance Moore, 27, was a member of a fan group that re-enacted scenes from the movie Mad Max.

Family and friends of a Mad Max fan who was killed in a motorbike crash in far west New South Wales say they are devastated by the loss of a "wonderful man".

Lance Moore, 27, died when his bike collided with a prime mover near Silverton at dusk on Tuesday.

Mr Moore, an Iraq war veteran from Virginia, USA, travelled to Australia to join the Mad Max Silverton Collective in recreating scenes from the post-apocalyptic films that were shot around the town.

"We are devastated," Mr Moore's girlfriend Blair Ingram said from the US.

"He was a wonderful man, fun-loving and kind-hearted.

"[Lance] loved his family and friends and never knew a stranger. He also bravely served two tours in the Iraq war, the US army airborne infantry. He was a huge Mad Max fan and was thrilled to visit Australia for the event."

Friends and fellow Mad Max fans also posted tributes to Mr Moore on social media.

"Devastated to hear this very sad news out of Australia," Arizona man Bruce Boyd said on Facebook.

"He was a true brother, a friend, Wastelander, Dog of War, fellow Mad Max/Road Warrior superfan. I will miss you."

Jim Dorsey from New Jersey posted a YouTube video tribute to Mr Moore.

"I thought the initial shock would ease and the tears would slow but they haven't," he said.

Crash victim not wearing helmet: police

Broken Hill police were continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash.

"We've interviewed a number of witnesses and we've been able to view some video that people captured on their mobile phone and we've examined that," Barrier Local Area Commander Murray Reynolds said.

"The rider was riding at speed into a setting westerly sun.

"Sadly - and this is a reminder to all people who ride motorbikes - it appears he wasn't wearing a helmet."

Commander Reynolds said it now appears that the accident did not occur during a scene re-enactment.

The 50-year-old driver of the prime mover was not hurt in the crash and underwent routine blood and urine testing.

He was interviewed by police but no charges were laid.

"There may have been nothing that the driver of the Mack truck did that contributed to the accident," Commander Reynolds said.

Police were asking anyone with information or footage to make contact.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
