Really to many to list.

Valgar because his dedication to barf is an amazing thing and without that the barf would not be what it is.

Bap for always being willing to help and being there to bounce shit off of for 8 years.

Silversvs, Enchanter, Data Dan and Connie for their work with moto safety are near the top.

So many members have overcome crashes, life challenges and more..Paul, Adam.. etc etc..

So many have supported barf in so many ways.. volunteering at 1Rider deals, helping with the race team, leading our rallies.

All the Moderators past and present who have spent countless hours moderating the site that can be very frustrating at times. I feel that because of these folks barf has grown to be a pretty good place.

Dad's like Ivan (97rr) and Matt that give their kids so much support in chasing their passions.

Guys like Keith Code that take time from world travels to interact with us.

theSteveco for having the vision to start this place and all the members that have created a community by leading group rides, having social gatherings, help their fellow riders, give insight into the ride, provide great threads about so many diverse subjects..

Hero's is a strong word.. but we have so many good people that deserve a handshake a smile and my gratitude.

I salute the already mentioned BARFers, but want to put in a plug for all those noobs who come here and ask the noob-questions. Not only do they remind us of things we may have forgotten over the years but sometimes they inadvertently create some epic and memorable threads.

Big salute to Budman, for his generosity and dedication to this site.

wrbrown and neo777 for helping me (and a couple other folks) out after crashes.

wrbrown and ironbutt also receive the Awesome BBQ award.

...And BARF in general, for helping me survive my first year and a half learning to ride in the heart of San Francisco. Without the stuff I've learned here who knows where I'd be, but probably not riding!

There are some definite heroes listed here...I can't think of any that haven't been mentioned. A hero is a special person and given the weight of the definition, it makes sense that there aren't tons of them.

That said, I'd like to recognize Roadstergal, WoodsChick and NemoBrinker as three people of significance here. Their humorous take on life, skills and devotion to riding always leave me wanting to hear more from them.

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.

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...
