A little barf history for the new folks - Welcome!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ar...a_Riders_Forum

Really a well done bit above by Arnoha although it is not up to date. I have updated it, but hate to steel any thunder from the person who put in the time and effort to do this so I am not sharing that yet. I will one day.. probably 2014 as the barf racing support will reach a 10 year milestone and we .. I mean Chris Siglin did win the AFM number 1 plate in 2011. Berto (holeshot here) has won a couple of top 10 plates too and a couple of F1 championships... plus we have a landspeed record and mini bike championships and a fast Krazy Cid in the Red Bull Rookies Cup now living in Europe.

and we........

Like I said it is really well done and very accurate to the time of his last entry.

*********************************************
Update 2017

Thanks for replying to this post. It has been 4 years since it was updated.
There is another thread about our 15th year in existence that is a fun read, because it has pictures and links to so much history.

2016-15 years of barfing

Some things have change within the racing effort. Kazman has been plying his trade for barf and via his racing team he is helping the next generation of racers. We supported Deion Campbell for a couple of years and he is now in MotoAmerica rocking the big time. Joy Higa is repping barf in a couple of MotoAmerica events and will be at Laguna in July.
AJ = Honey Badger has taken over as the fastest lady in the AFM ( from my perspective )

Anthony retired at a young age and is chasing graphic arts and he is damn good at that too!

We helped get the lanesplitting bill passed and modified to something that is beneficial for veteran riders. We have helped with the new guidelines too, but I don't expect them to be what we wanted, but at least they will be back and the CHP are investing in social media and other efforts to raise awareness.... and lots more good stuff too.

Life rolls as do we when we are on two wheels.

I read about Barf history, very respectable, great job to those founders and incredible achievements. I appreciate very much. When we enjoy something we should learn where it was from.

Thanks

Thanks for the information. I've been riding for more than 30 years and done dozens of track days. This is my first time on BARF and I am impressed. no egos or trolls. My track bike is a 2002 GSX-R1000 and the suspension was set up by Dave Moss.Thanks again .
