Thanks! Same back at ya, Bud! Happy that I can give back to the board. I've gotten to know a lot of good folks, received tons of valuable information (and not just about bikes) and gotten more than my fair share of laughs and support. (Now, that I've seen Adam's Miss America/Universe Pageant image I really want a tiara...)

Thanks Budman for doing so very much for the community. I consider myself luck to know you.

Thanks for pulling my name out of the hat!

dearest dennis - am truly humbled by your acknowledgement. when i think of sincerity, fortitude and effort on behalf of the moto community, i think of you. whatever any of us do, it is solely a testament to what you make possible through your extraordinary dedication to making a space where we can come together as brothers, sisters, and like minded two wheeled enthusiasts. with a large dose of humanity also involved. all credit goes to you. xoxo

This is so awesome and I'm humbled to be included in the BARFie list. We at Z2 Track Days just thought it would be nice to give a couple of free n00b spots to our excellent Season Pass holders and they absolutely ran with it. The entire n00b day idea was theirs (Bassem, Jeremy, Michael, Raymond) and it really speaks to the cohesiveness, generosity and camaraderie of the BARF community. So great.

Dennis: none of us would have the reach or the community that we do without you. From the bottom of my heart and with the utmost respect, I salute you:
