He was my bicycle riding buddy, our store softball team pitcher, and an all-around great guy. He was such a selfless person and he will be missed by many. Godspeed Mike or "Superbike Mike" or "Dancin Mike Hansen" as he was called by his coworkers.
Like others have stated, Mike was a great guy. Always helped me when I came in. Been a while since I have been by the shop but he was always smiling and helpful. RIP, we lost a good one.

Aww, a huge loss to the folks at Fremont Kawasaki...and the moto community.
Mike was always gracious and helpful to me back when I was an adjuster for Progressive and later when I got to see him on my Citybike runs.
70 seems too young to go for someone so vigorous and full of life.
Condolances to his family, work mates, and all that knew him.

RIP Mike
