The family of a man who died after a motorcycle collision was a "much-loved son, brother, nephew and loyal friend to many".
Jason Bown, 52, a painter and decorator from Derbyshire, died at the scene of the crash near Betws-y-Coed on 7 September.
Another motorcyclist was taken to hospital after the crash, which police are still investigating.
Mr Bown's family said they were "shocked, devastated and heartbroken".
They said he was "perfectionist" in his self-employed work but that he "worked only to fund his love for anything Harley Davidson, to take as many photos of his pride and joy, in as many places as possible".
"Words cannot explain how empty his family, friends' and customers' lives are now that he's gone.
"He will be forever missed by all that knew him."
The other motorcyclist, a 61-year-old man, remains in hospital with serious injuries.
