Barf Heroes

It's Thanksgiving and I thought we needed a BARF Heroes recognition thread thread. Please take the time and be thankful for the superheroes amongst us.

This morning I went out to the shop and uncovered the Cagiva. If it weren't for Super Mike and Planegray I believe this bike would still be held prisoner in Walnut Creek by XXX_XXXXX. Mike and Stephen, you are my BARF heroes.

(Connie I didn't mention you because you are already way beyond hero status)

Jim is definitely a HUGE contributor, and someone I have a lot of respect for doing what he does for the motorcycling community

Haven't met the other 2 but without Budman & BARF I wouldn't be where I am at today. I didn't even know about trackdays or racing before BARF and now I am racing in the AMA and it all traces back to this forum and the threads and info I received when I got my first bike!!!

I have a few personal heroes...

Weak_Link, for introducing me to BARF in the first place. Without him, I wouldn't be where I am now...
Hooli, for introducing me to Z2... and without them, I wouldn't be racing AFM.
Burning1 & AFMotorsports, for getting me through my first couple of race weekends- couldn't have done it without you two!
Bonerov, for opening his home to a bunch of BARFers just for me!
OldFatGuy, for so many years of epic Sink parties!
Ironbutt, for rebuilding the motor in my truck when it blew the head gasket (for the 3rd time).
Jakemate, for letting me help him do the clutch on my truck, and dropping everything to rescue me when it had "issues" over in Castro Valley
tzrider, for being the type of person I aspire to be- on and off the bike.
Every single BARFer who's gone out of his or her way to help another BARFer... parts, advice, rescue service, all of it... these people are the ones who make BARF the awesome place it is!
And let's not forget the Mods (who have a tough job, but do it so well), and Budman, for giving us BARF in the first place!

I'm sure there are some people I'm forgetting...

So sweet. Thanks but not a selfless act so not a "hero". Not like the people here (like you) that helped to give me and others a leg up.

My barf hero list is too long to post.

Oops, I thought the thread title was "BARF Herpes". But while I'm here I'll add mcarb for saving a cat from what was essentially on "Death Row", and ScorpioVI for giving her a permanent home when she didn't play well with mcarb's other cat.http://www.bayarearidersforum.com/fo...d.php?t=327328

Today is sad as we have lost another brother... Two heroes of BARF for me are Cygnus (Steve) and RydThr (sp? Bill). These guys were always there for others and many times at the sacrifice of their own needs... Godspeed to the both of you, I miss you terribly...
