2016 - 15 years of barfing review.

Happy 15th Barfers!!
Let's roll out some hiiiiiiiisssssssssttttttttttooooooooorrrrrrrryyyyyy!

FYI theSteveCo invented this shit!!!
Yeah... I am not the founder of barf. Steve was, is and shall remain as the man that started this journey and personally, I will forever be grateful for that.

Here's to you TSC

Forums come and go. Some were bought and changed to make a buck. Others simply overwhelmed by the Facebook world of social media. Some how this silly website (name is silly = barf) has grown and blossomed into something very different. Pretty unique I think. Hell I am not that sure, because I pour my soul into this place and don't really check out very many others.. Nor do I facebook, or many of the other social media outlets that keep people tuned into each other and the world. I barf.

I come here for moto info, for news, Political and scientific insight and to make plans to ride.

So I am going to take you on a little history trip from the beginning of the site in January of 2001 to the beginning of 2017. I know it will have more info than many will ever care about, but I do and no doubt a lot of Founding Members (those that joined in year 1) and many more will remember some of them. It may get a little AFM deep in a couple years so please forgive me on that, but the AFM is and will be part of my soul until they put me in a box.

For some this thread will hopefully give you some laughs and insight on the Bay Area 2 wheel culture that have disappeared off the every day radar of barf.

So I have selected a few threads for you to catch a glimpse of what was up in each of those 15 years. Hope you enjoy it for what it is. A trip down memory lane for me.

2001

So here we are…. January 2017. Holidays done and a new year to enjoy.

IN 2001 there was a group of guys from the Bay Area who hung on SBN and got to know each other. I was in a Yahoo Club myself... remember those?? Geez I was still getting spammed 5 years ago from it.. When Steve decided to start something local the dudes chatted up what should they call it?? Since I was not there I am shooting from old memories here, but I did see early banter about it. I believe it was MackeyStingray that suggested barf and I believe he actually designed the barf logo as well. He was one of the early Moderators as well, became a racer and fell asleep at the first ever Mod meet I attended... we all made fun of him. Photo OP!!! .

Anyways Steve was a little resistant on Barf, but caved eventually. His work put together a package with VBulletin software and when barfed launched on Jan 2, 2002 I believe there were 5 dudes that chimed in. So Happy BDAY BARF!! 15 years later we have a few more than 5 guys....

There has been a lot of life played out within our digital landscape and in the world we actually share outside that. We have seen kids born, marriages, lives pass, human kindness shared, the passion of racing, the banter of politics and the fight for our rights as American motorcyclists fought. I am amazed actually. Collecting these threads and sharing those times again, which include once again seeing the digital finger prints of people I know longer see, but I know.

A lot of folks say.. man I liked barf the way it was in the old days. Everyone knew each others and we all got along and we did not need any stinking rules...

Well not 100% correct. Just for fun....Here is the first ever barf wide posted announcement by Steve in Jun of our birth year. I had been a member for about a month.

Shape up or ship out!

The people responsible for the recent change in spirit are not people you will ever see at a social or on a ride, so I'm not really sure why they're here or even how they found us.

My second response will be to spend a week or two cleaning our site... deleting posts, locking out users, etc. I'll later publish all these posts in a book called "How to Look Like an Ass".

My third response will be to make BARF an invitation only site, where new members are not welcomed with open arms, but reference checked by the moderators.

I don't think any of the people who have been here for a long time want that. If you find yourself saying "so" or "who cares", you are probably one of the people I'm talking about.

Sorry, people, for the inconvenience. The losers should be gone shortly.
I was like... cool. This is not like that Yahoo BS where anything went and not much did.

I do smile when folks clamor for the good old days. Having lived long enough I know know these are going to be the good old days 5 years from now. So enjoy them!!

One of our first members is still active once in a while.
magyarbetyar
did his Mod duty for a good long spell and has one the running avatar image on barf. If you see Mod Alumni in a profile / under their avatar, those members gave time to support teh barf, and I for one appreciate it much.

By the middle of the year we were maturing (in a sense ) and really started to have some fun in the real world. Snellbux meets in SJ and meets in SF soon brought a lot of barfers face to face. Lets get to biddness and share some history.

2002

The Pace showed Barf was cognizant of the dangers of our chosen hobby/lifestyle/ form of transportation from the beginning.. That being an acknowledgement that moto's are dangerous. Hella fun, but dangerous.

Stunting was actually a large part of the barf user segment and interest in it was hot... well hot when you have a dozen members or so.. KXP was the first Mod of the madness and he made a decree. Portformance/Matt was actually really good at it and the BTB was the official crew of the early days of barf. Kalamari Kid was good too.

SnellBux meets started before I joined and was one of the things that I think made barf something solid. The face to face meets created a solid base of friendships that Steve relied on to help Moderate the forum. Look at the Mod Alumni members in this early thread.

We started welcoming new members in 2002 as well. http://www.bayarearidersforum.com/fo...ead.php?t=3039
I am still quite diligent at saying hello to newbies

Barf grew pretty quick, and by May Steve was fighting server issues. Several people offered donations including myself.

Pic of yourself thread the early days!

Barf was not all serious for sure...The funniest pic thread - NSFW (added later) still remains a place where we get a little raunchy.

Ultimate Bachelor Party My best bud gets married and we don't do strippers - we rock the track.

What does your name mean? This came up in a different thread in 07 which is still getting replies. OG's (Founding members) in this one.

I tested the waters of who was out here with this one Did you Play Me?

Group Rides:
Lots of places to find them these day, but in 2002 there was just one place that really rocked them.

Here is another Announcement by the SteveCo on March 19th 2002:

Keep it up guys, in no time I'll have to sell both my bikes, my Jeep, AND my Porsche to foot the bill for this server!
Over the years we have always been fond of humor. Barf jokes, internet memes continue to this day. Fun stuff. I collected a few and threw them into a collage. A higher res version is available if you want one.

Racers and X Racers check in.
This was the thread that turned barf in a slightly different direction – it brought the knowledge that there were some passionate people here – RACERS. You those crazy folks that challenge one another and themselves in sporting venues made for such practices.
Many have come and gone leaving a glory trail or sometimes sometimes heartbreak, but all stepped up. A New Years goal is to add all those that have posted on the thread to the first post list. So if you have not checked in do so. Upload a pic too! <<-- I said upload because then it will remain past your photobucket account because barf is not going anywhere soon!

You will see more of our appreciation for racing showcased below. Old Race photos, USGP Photo’s, AFM historical photo’s. All this from a rookie forum dudes question wondering if there were others like me here. This launched me into barf in a serious way too. All of a sudden there was a Racers Corner and very soon I became a mod.

There have been so many great race reports – GoGo gets my nod as the best of our history, but before him there was Gary J and many others sharing their fun with other barfers. These reports no doubt inspired other to dip their toes into racing. Some going all in.

2003

2003 brought us a few things. Baptistro and I joined Steve as the 3 amigo's who were guiding the ship known as Our TOS started to evolve a bit and Bap got his own smilie because he took on the task of suspending people I never have liked doing that myself, because I want people to have fun here and I have enough time as an authority figure as a Father.

Trackdays
became a part of barf's culture right away. No better place to learn to go fast than the track....look who is at this track day!! So very cool!!!

Pretty soon ZZ and PTT became partners of barf and have been for a long time. Many other groups provide a great service to riders (Feel like a Pro, Feel like a Pro Dirt, Mystery School, Garahan Offroad, to name a few). Barf believed that getting out to the track and on a dirt bike is the best way to master controlling a two wheel machine and still does

Mi Vida Loca ( my crazy life) by 280SQUAGGLER was a hit for sure.
Ricky rocked the lifestyle with this thread, which became a barf classic. It still is thanks to the old practice of actually linking your pictures. Still a fun read… and now Ricky has a shop and is a barf sponsor! RMC MOTO - 408-855-8584 plug for you brother!

It also brought us our first real event/ride. Ride for Life We did it in coordination with the Rotary club as a fund raiser for their polo vaccination effort. It was the second time integrating motorcycling with that effort for me, the first being an AFM race in ’88. The Elks lodge in Palo Alto was the ending venue for the BBQ and Pit Ho emerged as a great logistic helper for me /barf. Great food and some good music underneath a shady park environment made for a damn good time.

Doc Wong has been doing work shops on riding and maintenance a long time!!

G-Force seemed to like Paddock Girls

Growing pains still were there and while barf had very little advertising (if any??) when I penned this thread asking for donations. Being a barf Contributor..Why not?. That started a campaign to gather a few bucks and created a tradition since. All the money went to Steve as I as still just a member/ Mod. Those contributions have help barf keep our advertising to a minimum and I believe that has led to a much tighter community.

Oh wait...280SQUAGGLER was not done. Vida local II comes back for more!!

We did some cool stuff in meat space too!:
barf games was born. It was awesome fun

Challenge 1
Challenge 2
Challenge 3
Challenge 1 Submission thread this is where the poll pics the winner!! = NOID!

We should still be doing this stuff...!

BudBandit was one of barf's earliest Group Ride dudes.

It did not take long to recognize that getting dirty was awesome: Enter the Dirty Barfing. We heard the calls for it!! MetcalfRangers started giving trail condition updates in 2011. Your tax dollars doing some damn good work!!! Thanks guys!!! You Rock!

Motorcycles started being sold on BARF in 2001 they were scattered throughout the general forum (kind of a PIA). In 03 we started a specific forum for sales. MotoJava an early sponsor, took advantage of it.

We still offer ads for free and just ask for a 1% contribution upon a sale. Craigslist can kiss my ass!! . Thanks to all that have been honorable enough to throw down. Those that have not.....Sup?? Hell we have AFM classifieds too so that racer types can find specific racer type stuff.

Auntiebling has been working the forum for a while now and his sharp eye and keen sense of what should or should not be in an ad is very appreciated. The classifieds have now expanded to include all kind of things. Watch for the barf yellow pages coming out in 2017!! List your biz for 25 bucks a year and share your job with fellow barfers.

Racing
97rr (Anthony Alonso's Dad) brought us MotoGP news often Is Rossi the greatest ever? Amazing to think that 14 years later Rossi is still going and most fans would now say NO DOUBT! Sorry Ago. 97rr was the man in those early years for Race Reports on barf.
Thanks Ivan!

2004 --- Really getting busy

Oh yes we were. Seeing barf was still struggling, but was so damn cool I asked Steve if he needed a financial boon. He was getting serious with his lady and life was transitioning and I think he saw a passion in me and said yes. I became a partner with Steve and things were jumping.

The fun was still the flava of the day though!!
Thoughts of this photo? One of barfs classic "we are having fun now" threads.

Beside the AFM stuff below, Steve and I were doing our own vids.. lousy 8mm shit, but we were having fun. There are 8 episodes buried in the vault
Here is episode 3

youtu.be/qsYmYSmedIU

How Many of you are lifers.? That thread has been kicking around lately as well. 'Cuz I bumped it

fr0ng kicked of some good Ducati hate with *2004* Why is it that at least half of all Ducati riders can't ride for chit?

Barf has always loved animals: Sport bike kittens F4iChic has been a huge animal advocate over the years and who knows how many animals have been placed in homes because of her effort and barfers big hearts. She has rocked in more ways than just that.

Seems barf liked guns too BARF Militia

Name 5 people on BARF that you would like to meet

KS Party #3
The KS put on some epic parties...

June chili cook-off / barf meet
Matt suggest closing a street down for a stunt show and damn if we didn't make it happen. We did slow races too! PICS

Curveunit Bbq & Pool Party
Curve Unit once again appeared here We are playing NICE now barf was not as Civil, PC or whatever you want to call it. Prepare for banter and no getting mad allowed.


We did lose a friend in Iraq. Andrew Dang was a BARFer and a US Marine.
Godspeed Andrew

Racing
2004 in the AFM we almost lost a friend
Bill Fordyce this amazing moment was captured by long time AFM photo Guru Gary Rather. "Wild Bill" still wears white at the AFM races as an AFM official and every time I see him I smile really big, because I knew he was saved by the quick action of the corner workers and paramedics on hand that day and that has allowed his passion to be shared by hundreds or perhaps thousands of Racers since.

The AFM is racing history
The 50th reunion website is gone, but most of the pics still live here.!! The 50th party was way cool and Kevin Smith (then AFM president) made a very cool movie we share on the Saturday night. We shared a teaser that Antoine Miller of Vision Wells made about the movie we were doing and it shredded. So very stunning it was. Where ever you are Twon

What is this BarfRACING thing?? Well it was media, reporting, videos, fun and racing!! And a lot of work!!! When I said I would be a reporter for barf, theSteveCo crafted a website and we went to work. Somewhere in cyberspace these things still live. A hardcore group of friends went to work with us to report on AFM racing.

Soon it turned into a race team when I saw a post by Mikey Judkins saying he needed a motor and I had one. I said "hey Steve I got this motor and this fast kid needs one how about a race team??" Next thing I knew theSteveCo and I had a RACE TEAM! We had bikes to paint and Bobby Keith at CYCLE FINISH came thru. He still barfs. Thanks Bobby!!

Steve Conk was my man recording lap by lap records of almost every class. The hours he and I put into those articles. Holy cow. Thanks Conk!!! My good buds Danny Fernandes and Mark Lawrence stepped in to help us help the racers. I don't know how many Pit Ho hot dogs we ate over the next 5 or six years.

When Vision Wells showed at the first race with video cameras and no plan I helped crafted one and Jay, Antoine and I put out the AFM year in review. Thousands of hours went into a DVD that probably sold 200 copies, but it was fun. I wrote and narrated it, Antoine and Jay edited, developed the graphics and of course filmed it and we had AFM star David Stanton on the cover. What a task. I could never dedicate the hours I did back then now. So glad I got to do it. It all started when Antoine said "We need someone to do interviews" and the never shy me said I can do it! As if I did not have enough to do. Hoping the short version will end up being shown at the AFM's 75th anniversary. I hope I will too! **Edit I just watched some of it.. awesome! Forgot we had lap description by Rob Mesa and Dave Stanton. Forgot I wrote the entire movie script without seeing any video and then had to slam it home!**

Even theSteveCo got on it and he documented it in Rookie Racer He seemed pretty nervous that day, but he was nothing, but smiles after. x 10

I do hope the effort on the articles and videos was appreciated by more than just me. Ha! I wanted to keep it going but I had to make a living. Any volunteers?? We had a few. Thanks all! ( I still have the server that held it all.. perhaps one day I will try to retrieve it all).

And thanks to the sponsors that made our Race team a reality!

Sorry for the long blather.

2005

Barf was continuing to grow, but the issues were getting harder to deal with.

In May or so barf crashed. I was getting calls and had zero damn info on what to do. JacktheTripper got me the info I needed. Our servers were leased and sitting in LA and there was a 6 month bill due so they shut us down. I called the guy and gave him a credit card number and he lit us back up..

However the spotty service and crash left a bunch of people worried about barf future. Some Users stepped up and started a fundraiser... Hawkgirl was an amazing Mod (social gatherings). She lit up the SF community and created a big following. Forever she will be a special part of barf history. She and cat_in_sf just went so far to help get barf back to health. They handed me a pile of money for barf that would change our direction forever.

Since I was not a tech guy I needed help and Nexus/Tom stepped up as did Valgar to get us going in the right direction. WTF's up with the server? I moved this out of the Mod Forum so you could see who was there in those hectic and stressful days.

Nexus purchased a server, got me hosting, and worked for a couple years behind the scenes to ensure barf would live! Thanks Tom!!! SO MUCH!! Dave/Valgar did the day to day stuff and has continued to tackle our problems since.. more on that later.

We still have time for fun though. Here is some of it:
Old Race Photos
As race fans this thread hit us in the stomach. For those that were not race fans it probably raised an eyebrow. No doubt barf has inspired a few riders to go see some racing or actually RACE themselves.!

Personality of the Week
Photoshop classics… this tradition gets lit up now and again. Barfalicious fun for all! ...and again with valgar

What are you thinking? Keeping tabs on your thought for well over a decade.!

Liam's Wild Ride still remains as one of barf's best ever threads IMO. Liam dropped all and chased his dream and we were lucky enough to go with him!!! Truly a dynamic thread that took barf into the pit of MotoGP – Total awesomeness!!!

The Cold Shower by Feanor thread was...a... well.. I don't even now how to describe it really. A true barf classic and a story of who the hell is Feanor?? Got some time... good read.

I must include fr0ng. I saw him on a flight to COTA with Ducky Fresh and crew just a couple years ago,

Good question How serious do you take BARF? It starts like this...."Really... to me it just seems people are so goddamn sensitive, it's pathetic."

And this follows it up nicely....you people all fuckin suck

Remember La Ducati Day 2005 in La Honda JohnC was quite the organizer. First time I rolled out a barf booth I think.

SLOSHBALL pics
Wait.. there is more SLOSHBALL pics!
And MORE PICS

Race stuff:
Another awesome GoGo racer report to wrap up 2005. I treasure the pic at the end of it.

2005 Old school on board video of a 600 Production Race at THill. Mikey Judkins battles with future barf Racers Kenny Carlotta and Berto Woolridge

Felipe Cabezas/Mistico gave us our first Barf Racing Podium and Victory. His season was cut short though needing to go back to South America for family stuff.

Mikey Judkins hit his first podium. He is a great guy and will always remain a special dude to me. We just exchange message (he is in Texas) perhaps COTA will reunite him, Danny and I will share a with him.

Mike Solis/ MrCrash was delivering Race Results on barf and for City Bike = Peak at FP and the 600's and other classes to see some good folks hauling the mail!... and if you want see pics check out what BigOz gave us!! Still linked..

And Vision Wells stuff can still be found if you look hard enough!! F-IV Shawn Reilly on the Buell by an inch at the line. Plus you get to hear Fosgate say "Psychedelic Centipede"

And remember James Cornell and Dawgpound Racing?? go on board with them! James was the first barfer to be hurt at the Isle of Man. Barf helped with a fund raiser for him.

If you want to search for this stuff you can go to the bottom left of any forum where it says threads.
Click on the date - typically set for last month.
Go to "beginning" and then "show threads" and then go to the right and hit the last page = time warp.
Enjoy, but lets not start getting to crazy --OK??

Pic 1 - How too search for barfs old shite!
Pic 2 - Mamola at Laguna from the Old Race Photo's thread

2006 - 5 years and still barfing!

2006 brought stability to barf.. and that felt good. Phew!

Because shit was about to hit the fan!!!

woody @ Live 105 lights up the moto community. Open the door on lane splitters you say??
Don’t fuck with us by opening your car door!!!! That message was loud and clear to Woody at live 105. The country watched barf as we bashed the morning DJ The solidarity of motorcyclists was on display here. White Menace his young side kick on the Morning show worked hard over the next few years to make amends. Barf Podcasts from the studio, shout outs to barf - I think he even took the MSF.

Other threads kept us entertained thankfully.
If barfers were rock stars. and If you had to Rob a bank Who would be your accomplice?

Who's been BAPtized on BARF ?!?1 meaning suspended by Baptistro

Wannabe's Wild Ride - Salt Flats baby! Won him a barfie and the story of his chasing his dream joined Liam's as one of our best ever.

Desert Fun! Or: how to ride an R6 off road

Social gatherings were going strong --"who knew whities had a hang out in Richmond.. 5/3/06 - 1st 2006 Travelling meet @ 540 Club

Some amazing people have joined barf. As in they have been riding since rocks were invented. Ha!! How long!? (have all u guys/girls been riding for?)

Bad Dad=1......Mugger/Pursesnatcher=0

SnellBux meet provided some drama -2006- Pics from *$ Tuesday SJ 'Bucks Meet 6/20/06 ~w/crashed R1~

SLOSHBALL
And of course the banter before the game.... MAY 6th SOFTBALL VI (or whatever number we are on)

Never heard of the underbelly of barf?? 9/23/06 U.B.O.B. Stripper/House Party

Lets party harder eh?? racergirl and Spdt509 B-day pics <with hot girls>

2006 also saw the Crash Analysis Forum added...

...and the LEO forum
Here is the thread that started the it. I had taken over for theSteveCo, but it was not well known as of yet and I soon made the request officially accepted. The LEO Forum has been huge deal for barf IMO.

.. and the Training Forum was launched too. We change the name to riding skills early in '16. Enchanter has made some great suggestions for this stuff and this, crash analysis are just a couple of them.

Oh Yeah.... we had a Mod meet in 06 to get things going and a new class of Mods were brought in too. We were busy! Many of those Mods continue to help barf thrive as Admins. I continue to be humbled by their support. Thank you!

In the best of best of barf vids if you look under MotoGP and you can find my interview of Nicky Hayden. What an awesome experience thanks to REPSOL. I did Pedrosa too in 08' (buried somewhere - I cannot find it dammit ) The Hayden interview is of the best personal moments barf has ever brought to me!! (That don't include dear friends or two wheels - )

Oh we had a party!!! Barf bash baby... DedRinger played, so did the Two fingers (barf dudes) and a young metal band Angst (15 year olds that fricking rocked)!!!
Here are some Pictures MiniBarf represented!! Even more awesome Pictures
Dennis Anderson hook us up with Honda of Milpitas. Dennis and I raced against each other back in the day.

Racing
Enter the Bobby Fong era of our race team. We changed from barfRACING to NetMoto because Suzuki said they would never sponsor something called barf. Mike Solis was still writing for RRW and posted on barf too check out the 600 classes for some bad ass talent. 06 was a fun and challenging year for sure. Seeing Bobby win at COTA last year some 10 years later was cool as hell. Here is our race report for the first round. Check out Andy Carman's off track mud run. with AC and Bobby we were pretty solid. There is lots of great stuff in this early years. If you want to go back and look just adjust your thread setting to "beginning" and work back. Hundreds of pages of AFM history to be had.


youtu.be/hjR0ZlBSDDs
https://youtu.be/hjR0ZlBSDDs

And of course we had to have some stupid fun with Pit Ho.

youtu.be/HZ5YYh3FtKk
https://youtu.be/HZ5YYh3FtKk


Ok one more little plug because the old race articles can still be had. PDF format. grab them while you can Racers. Never know!!

Well damn. One more MrCrash /Mike Solis reports on AFM Round 7 Fong and AC were is full go and Dave Sadowski join my old endurance teammate John Fosgate in the booth.
Big thanks to Alex Florea for his support in our early years. AFMotorsports Michelin was so vital to our guys!!

Happy BARF Day BARF!

Tiered license system could be on the way.
Been 10 years.. not happened yet.

How did you come up with your barf handle?. I have to go reread this on myself just to read what I said.

Interesting conversation about an A or B pace on HWY 9. Live & Learn, & Then Get Loves...(Accident Story with pics) Pics removed by OP, but the community comes out quickly with sight lines, there is no A or B pace on the street etc.

Lanesplitting has been a topic for quite a while. Lane sharing in the Contra Costa Times again A lot of people said "we don't need a bill (AB51) it is already legal" when we started to argue (work with Quirk) to get the Bill we wanted. Bottom line to me is this needed to happen.

3 words to Describe your bike

buying your first bike: POS vs pretty and new
This is and will remain a good topic to discuss.

Barfers at time have been a little tough on teens...Help me convince the parents.

Barfers were good to teens Livermore High School 1Rider visit

F-U AFM! Gary J. Takes mentoring National!
Post 12 must read.

Here is some fun Get off the f*cking sidewalk!! LOLZ!!!!


Multiple identities are not allowed on barf. What's wrong with the R6? Busted..! Some laughs along the way.

Barf does American Supercamp and we got the Tshirt to prove it! American Supercamp Review - the smile fix.
Supercamp Photo's


Old USGP Photos stirred many of our hearts and probably made a few barfers new race fans too!

Quit blow drying your balls - yeah we classy and Motivational Posters proved we were still juveniles at heart.

We rode too:Adventure Tour on my R1 Near Donner

Want to ride the southwest but not sure?? Gsxrgirrl Does The Southwest set the standard on ride reports. BTW if you are thinking about it....This thread should guarantee it!!! I still have to do this. Awesomeness!!!

Barf Marriage and Baby... and I can't keep this secret anymore...The BARF world should know..

Racing
Net-Moto / Barf racing what's happening for 2007

2007 brought Kenny Carlotta ( and Ricky Corey for short while) to our team. Kenny did the west coast AMA stuff to. Lots of AFM Racers on those grids. Hope Moto America can make that happen again. Kenny took a 10th down at Fontana and was hoping for better back at Infineon. However a bent rim killed his chances, but hey Baptistro, Bill Swim and Pit Ho all still had some fun.

Kenny and Larry were fun to have in our pits. Pit Ho was still cooking, Danny still working on bikes and stuff.

Jim Race found this nugget of racing history Vacaville (Vaca Valley) Raceway : Redux

2008

2008 FRICKD'UPS Crazy motorcycle adventures in Thailand Life lived in this thread. I just realized I know one of these guys in the thread now, but not when the thread was posted.

2008 meant it was time to party…. BARF BASH!! At MDK. Twofinger played again as did DedRinger. Roundboy brought his band as well. Mucho rock n roll. Slow race with a turn.... amazing day!!

We are looking to do one of these again in ’17 at the Moto Guild on Treasure Island… hope you can make it!


Maybe better than a bash is riding 24 hours straight right?? Cal 24 BARF Style gave us an insight into aciurczak's awesome adventure. He is still involved today and BTW Boney won it this year!!

You can go 210 mph wth the right kind of sprockets.

Boney was bringing us great ride reports too!

Jim Race was the man in the early days of total MotoGP fandom on barf. This thread and it photoshops made press worldwide. Some pics are gone but plenty of good stuff remain to enjoy it again and again. He and I ended up and Indy MotoGP together where we filmed this interview with MotoLiam.

youtu.be/PAacmJ-W6Gs

2008 also brought us the first ever barf rally… It is a tradition of fun, smiles and miles that lives on today!

Carnage on the road created 1Rider and thanks to SilverSVS's telling somebody about it barf was invited to step up and it brought 1Rider and me into the moto safety world. You can see the presentation (well part of it) I gave to the Office of Traffic Safety at the first ever California Motorcycle Safety Summit. Com3/ Joe /4Theriders provided me some on board vid footage that was vital - Thanks man!

Speaking of the above barf came out with Squid Juice and we gave it away as part of our safety patrols. Bet there are few bottles still around.

Barf Safety Patrol's are born

We visited the Livermore PD for their Livermore Police hosting Motorcycle Safety Awareness event 9-21
Photo's here

SLOSHBALL

There was an election in '08 and we had a contest... it was THE BOMB! Political photoshop contest..! Obama or Mccain your way!

Christmas provided and opportunity to Give back When a single Mom's Xmas presents (moto's) barfers stepped up to bring the Goods saving their Christmas. Over and over we see the community help each other out. Part of why I love this place and moto peeps!

I took my son to the Mystery School for his 25th birthday... next thing you know I am an amateur journalist again...
Part 1 and Part 2 Rich became a barf sponsor soon as he saw the review.. Not really, but he still did at some point. Barfers continue to invade his school. If you have not gone to his school please read the above and go have some fun! Tell him Budman sent you too!

Racing
Want to ride thunderhill. Want to ride it fast?? How about a walk through with Michael Earnest of PTT.!! A good friend and great guy, besides being one of the fastest and most experienced mofo's the AFM has ever seen!!

How about a ride review of the new KTM RC8 by Siggy !! Pretty rad!

Remember the Flyin Hawaiians?? Tanner will be 9 soon. This crew flew in from the Islands for every round and they were fast boys.. shout out to you boys.. hope life and Tanner is good!!

Being an AMA Umbrella girl? DucatiHoney got more than she wanted...? Maybe. .

Sadowski boys heading to New Zealand Davids' boys used the AFM to chase their dreams and racing more was what they needed so... Down under they went.


Congrats to all our Local Young Guns!!! check out the names on this list. Barf sponsored two. Who was the second???

AFM R1 MrCrash brings it!

Stanton to World Endurance Championship Dave is a badass.

Fast lady who got even faster 850

How fast is this guy now?? Crash pics / Shameless plug -- thank you, Helmut/Helimot!!! answer is damn fast. Yes the link lives!!

Our famous video game social thread that lives to this day Barftron Homebase was launched.

Barf took another step towards being a player in the moto safety environment in CA when SilverSVS reached out to barf to enlist help on moto safety: Your input needed on California Motorcycle Safety.

I had the opportunity to go to dinner with SuperX announcer and former Champ/ Yamaha Factory rider Jim Holley

In Search of Water in the desert one of many awesome ride reports by a true treasure of barf.....Woodschick. Go to dirty barf and adventure riding to find a lot more of her awesome reports. Each good enough to plan your adventure!!

Adventure you say? Well we believe in it. And some live it.

This is me photo thread are you in it?? Please upload your photo if you are going to add one!!
Please!

Livermore PD wins 2009 Motorcycle Safety Award Thanks to SilverSVS commitment to the moto they won again and again.. this is just one example.

SLOSHBALL
SLOSHBALL PICS!

We got together to watch a Moto movie classic: Take it to the Limit.. That included Kenny Roberts winning Indy on a TZ750 Flat trackers... bad ass!

US to deport my friend.. and Marine.. What BS!! Landed me on KTVU News and brought me into the world of Veterans being deported. Roger was not, but still is fighting the court system. I had the honor of playing Liars Dice with him yesterday.

Racing
Oliver lit up the racers corner with this classic: I wanna race. You can feel the enthusiasm with each post. I met Oliver at Peet's one day and gave him a high five for this awesome thread.

Yeah... barf sponsored a sidecar team ...
BadCat Racing Moike is nuts.. barf loves nuts even when it is 3 wheels!!

Who is this GoGo dude?? Changes

Siggy joined barf racing. Ever since the movie in '04 I was impressed with Chris and hope to work with him. In the movie he beat Andy Carman to the line at Thill to win the 600 C'ship by a fricking 1/4" It was close. I know because AC bought 3 copies of the video to see if it was different in any of them.... Love you AC!!

The Everlasting Charlie Horse! Round 3 Report
It was Berto that brought Chris too us and I will always be grateful to my bud for that.

Machete was just one of several barfers that seem to catch the AFM bug.
Many thanks for a succesful AFM weekend..(race report) Rick would continue on to become a barf moderator, rally master and good friend.

Z3n was another...Race Report: #849 (Long)

AFMer at Macau... no shit!!! We're all a bunch of pansies... Alex was right.. these dude are true 's..! I had no idea that Dave Stanton was that until I say this thread!

I was lucky enough to interview Dani Pedrosa at Laguna Seca.

I also brought ex-barf racing Bobby Fong into the Repsol tent to give him some props.

This was a good year! Well mostly.

But is did not seem like it at first...Barfer ozzymandis thrown from bridge Yeah… thrown from a bridge /overpass in SF. Paul’s miracle lives on in this thread and he does too. He made a full recovery!

Kitchen sink always entertains.. If you don't understand _________ you don't understand BARF and Obscura's Story Time

Gary threw this gem out Photos of your bike on location. It is still going so throw down!

We found a Roadside Angel Connie volunteered to come save people if they broke down. Others volunteered as well and soon a network of great people were saving fellow barfers and still are today. Connie was a Stallworth 1Rider volunteer before that and in 2016 we changed our to : gxsrgrl to thank her.

Thanks to Enchanter FrostyBeast learns a thing or two at a 1Rider high school visit. I watched as the kid could not start his bike. Tim taught him what up and continued to guide the young man. So cool of him.

SLOSHBALL
SLOSHBALL PICS

Mortifer figured out a killer clown way to celebrate Halloween!!!

Insight from GARY J. - Riding in the rain.
Gary J touched a lot of riders here an in general and he is missed for sure.


I went to Colorado to watch the MX of Nations Since I could not get someone to go with me I took everyone!

Weaklink hit us with a barf is still awesome right before the year expired. Seeing Lylith post in it made me smile.

Losing Cygnus did not make me smile. The long time member and friend to so many left a hole in barfs heart.

Memorial Ride for Joe Montoya December 3rd this was a cool deal. So many old Racers and friends. We did a lap of honor at Sears Point. I was right at the front with none other than Gary J. The raceway fed us and allowed us to use the garages to gather. JOMO was not only a former AFM President he was a historical figure to me because he was the man when I raced.

Here is a nice Vid of the Ride.

youtu.be/kwLNNkTHvwU

Silversvs is going crazy again 9/16 for Special Olympics show some BARF love John is a great dude and gives back in more ways than just moto safety.

Racing

2010 started off with a laugh Why married guys race... Still funny. OK not.. yeah it is.. no it is not.. it is not PC.. fuck it.. it is funny!

WSBK Weekend thanks to Pirelli
Siggy showed for the Amercian support race taking 4th. It was a solid weekend of moto fun.

AFM racer Rich Snowden hit up England to Race in the British MotoGP support race NG250 Championship -- Yes he lived the dream, yes he had a barf sticker on his bike and yes he gave us a race report

And you thought he just hung out in the Couch Racers corner drinking Milk and stirring the shit.
DonJigweed is a racer!

Siggy gets an Italian GF Buttonwillow Race report - Italian Anyone?

Of course GoGo is in the house!!! Win it, or bin it. ..…Or

Bap gets some nice pic's at AFM R2

A Siggy race report Step by Step.. man those Ducs were sweet looking.

2011

2011 We asked for Barfs #1 road to ride

The 2011 Khan f’ing rides to Pakistan thread is an amazing tale of true love of two wheels. A student barfer decides the best way to get back home is to ride and he chases the fun through blizzards and more on his journey back home. Khan will be back BTW.

My Dub dub dub laid out what I thought we were in 2011. I think it still stands.

Wendy / F4iChic opened her house for a BBQ Bake Sale Fundraiser to help a special dude. It was a remarkable day - make sure to check out the pics later in the thread.

Jeff Tigert wrote this about former AFM Racer turned AMA race director Cool article with AMA's Kevin Crowther I wrote a recent update myself X- AFM Racer Kevin Crowther appointed AMA Director of Racing

Siggy gave us this very cool link to a sponsor vid Cool Promo Video for Boulder Motrsports of course his Ducati was featured You the man Chris!

We also saw one of many fundraisers for injured racers posted on barf Tyler O'Hara 2011 Fundraiser Info Haskovic, Kling, Stanton are just a few... we are proud to be a conduit for support.

How about a barf 24 hours endurance team?? BARF 24 hour endurance team. There was no barf when I did it back in '87, '88 and '89 but we were the Bay Area Fast Boys... oh yeah!!! ... and we were on bigger bikes.

MotoGP R1 If Rossi can't tame the beast?

Even a former AMA pro racer has to go to AFM new racer school Kazman is back in the game.

How about a Sears Point track walk with Dave Stanton

Barf supports young gun Tyler Lindersin WERA.

One of the craziest crash sequences I have ever seen. Berto from one bike to another.

2011 Siggy wins the AFM #1 plate just hanging around Siggy, Berto and their guys was a pleasure. Watching them do their business on the track ... amazing.
Pirelli played a big part and Alex from Fastline was always on the BMW making it sing. Our first year as the Formula Pacific Sponsor and we get #1 too. Sweet.

How about we invent something?? AMA O/MC #0001!! In the effort of continuing to be different and meaningful and after the third try I finally was successful in getting the AMA to create a new class of club.!! The Online Motorcycle Community was born. 4 years later we are still the only one and the best one too.

10th Anniversary SF party pics. Man what a great time we had!!!

The Image of the day is a winner from the Political Forum. Yup. Barf and politics. It became so pervasive that we had to move it out of the sink because people were getting pissed. Heck we ended up banning a couple of total political users because they just would not stop spamming the sink. The separate forum worked better. However this year there was some heat there. Trump vs. Clinton divided more than the country. Still we had some fun and we found that we have quite the mix of both liberal and conservative members and more that just lurk.. and we don't know!

Woodschick took some time off of riding / writing her epic ride reports and created this AFM history classic Old AFM Photos

Thanks to Cycle Gear's support we get more political and we started acting on many moto issues. This one is interesting it is about Carnegie and we are still involved 4 years plus later.

SLOSHBALL

Of course we still have time to ride. The 2012 Spring Rally Vids (lots of Rally stuff in the best of barf!!) - come ride with us!

The BARF Salute thread shows a lot of barfers smiling and flipping. How that became the barf salute is up for debate. The finger has been a prominent figure in American Motorcycling for a long time. Easy Rider was the first time I really noted it myself. Below is a collage of the fun that is way smaller than the actual artwork if I can call it artwork. If you want a full size copy email me. Happy to send it!

We launched the Gone But Not Forgotten Forum A great idea by Enchanter and SilverSVS comes to reality. Part of the reason was that we lost an Icon in Gary J Miss you man. Still think I will see you when I pull into 4 corners.

RIP Gary Jaehne (May 19, 2012)
The same day a thread for Gary J Pics went up.
Gary J a A celebration of life Gathering-Sunday June 10, 2012
In August Jill reached out to barf for peace, support and....?
WHY Gary J? Her pain made me appreciate the moments shared in life. Probably one of my most heartfelt posts.


Its Halloween again.. what to do?? How about we Ride!

Racing
Anthony Alonso heads to Europe
After spanking some serious bootie stateside the young man got the chance to chase his dreams abroad. Chase he did. How lucky was he to have such cool parents???

Brandon Kyee is a barf supported racer in Europe Brandon Kyee - Assen Race Report on KTM 690 I still have a nice thank you poster in my conference room. Nice family!

The answer to an early question about who was the other young gun we have supported.... here you go.

Brandon Kyee on the Misano grid! The kid is fast and living the dream!

Barf Member Jonko took us on an incredible life journey of travel, love and riding some amazing race tracks. He went quiet for a while and we hoped his journey had swung in a positive direction, because he never said it sucked. His positive outlook on life when it is waning is hero movie worthy. Godspeed man.

Pete showed some of us still have Faith in Humanity

The Gary J memorial was a special day in terms of the community showing love for a lost brother. ❤️️
GaryJ - A Celebration of Life This continues every year. I have missed a couple, but alway wish I was there to celebrate knowing a great dude. Watching the AFM 2004 video quick interview at the beginning with Gary makes me smile.

We ride right... what road?? Most Challenging Roads

Barfers show some Pride and gave something back to barf along the way

SLOSHBALL PICS

New forums??...how about the Vintage Cafe?? And Spec ECU asked about having a spot for racing fansdie hard race fans. The Couch Racers corner was created and he made a Mod for it. We enlisted flat track and RR historian FirstBuell too. Long time member Kevin714 soon became the biggest contributor and now is a famous podcast dude. BrotoGP baby!

We still were working on Moto safety and 2013 brought us the Lane Splitting Guidelines Barf members actually had some big impacts on this and our strength in State moto actions began to shine.

Pakistan Tour - Barfers join Khan for adventure of a life time.. you need to check this out!

And as usual I did the Year in Review Some good pics and memories.

Racing
My long time friend and now barf mod Eric Kondo was enjoying his 50 is nifty tour and providing barf with some awesome race reports/vids R2 Report - Yin and Yang is just one of the examples of his creative work (THAT SPONSORS LOVE!!)

Anthony Alonso was off on his Red Bull Rookies Cup journey. I happened to be a COTA for the first Round

Brandon Kyee was one of the young guys that barf tried to help do his thing in Europe and of course it take big money and awesome parents. He had the latter and could not make it work, but he did try and now doubt has some good memories from that. Here is one of the challenging ones. World Superstock 600 Monza Race Report

Another young gun was finding his wings. 4 wins + 4 seconds = 8 podiums at NOLA for Tucker Lancaster

Frozenuts was hitting his stride as a race photo dude becoming barf Racings photo guru. You can see the size of his .. um lens.. if you scroll down in this thread Round 7 pics...Now with Photos. Max has given me some of my favorite memories.. thank man. Koi has too.. thank you..! and before them Com3 and before him Gary Rather and before him Rob Hardy (80's baby !! - Gary was there too. wow)

Barf Member Jeff Tigert took Pikes Peak Glory I dusted off my journalistic talents to write about it Tigert Rocks Pikes Peak

For real this time 2013 was cool...Think Isle of Man - barfer - Allan Cunningham

He followed it up in 2014
My Manx schedule I wrote about his 2014 journey The Isle ... The Man. Man vs. the Man Allan became our second member injured at the Isle (that we know of) and thankfully he is still here posting. The Scot has grit..

Another man with grit is the Butcher. Dave Stanton. The cover model of the 2004 movie and season Pro/ multiple time AFM CHAMP/ WERA Endurance star was seriously injured. I am not going to get into that, but what I do want to share is the passion for the man that poured out. Save the Date STANTON BENEFIT. Dave is loved. His Valentino Rossi lap of Sears point in the '04 film had me in stitches OMG. Pics from the event are here .

Ricky Corey took the championship and a really cool video is in this thread. The battles we saw in '13 were pretty epic.
RCR Performance AFM Championship Video. Barf was the FP Sponsor and Siggy was hoping, but Ricky was again the top dog. Axial Video Systems/ Moose does a great job on his videos.

2014 brought us something really special: The Barf Meet Up at Flying Horse Farms was the best barf event that I never had to not do a thing at. Horsepower opened her home and heart for our community. An amazing show of barf love. I am forever indebted to her.

Worst April Fool joke ever worst part is so many people believed I would sell out

Thank good people did not kill me at SLOSHBALL Pics.

Pakistan Tour 2 was in the books and guess what. 3 is just ahead. Stay tuned!

Wolf and Zebra's adventure: San Francisco to Ushuaia is a go to ADV thread for sure!

Kyle is holding point for Stoneybarf! Stonyford Trip #3

Every once in a while an old barf concept pops back up. Still a hoot!!! I present Omar I might add Roman is Barf's biggest contributor over the years. Thanks so much my friend and to all that have helped barf live on thank you as well.

San Francisco Motorcycle Club - Est. 1904 is awesome and so is SFMCJohn. His ride reports, Vintage work as a Mod and member are so appreciated. See him in Hawthorne this year was icing on a very cool cake

Group Ride Mentality once in a while I can be preachy. In a kind and thoughtful way usually.

We gave the AFM an official place to chat
I was worried the Racers corner would turn to crickets... that did not happen, but it has slowed down. I have to think of something to wick it back up. Best race report of each AFM Round... yeah I thought of that, but would it just mean giving all the money to GoGo??

Barf Bash 14

Some members got together with Zoom Zoom and a newb trackday was put together. Free track day with z2 for a n00b. -- ** Winners chosen ** What a great thing to do... getting people to the track creates better riders -- No doubt. You guys rock! PICS

The day I sold barf. was a bad day OMG.
Worst thing I ever did!


Racing
Imagine how fun it was for me to see Anthony Alonso in the 2014 COTA Red Bull Rookies Cup. The Krazy Cid had been our longest running sponsored rider and he was stepping up to the world stage for REAL. He found that those guys were fast!!!

GoGo is still the man with the race reports.. you are amazing man. AFM round 3 - CHAIN GANG

The AFM was back at it of course and Ricky Corey was chasing his 3rd ship in a row. Siggy was determined to stop that as nobody had ever done it before. Moose once again captured the drama on film and R7 was the deal. Lenny Hale, Siggy and more share the day.. awesome!. Siggy had 5 points on Hale for the championship and you can see the season unfold in this vid. the last lap is INSANE!!!

I was there an provided some pics to share with barf. AFM Round 7 pics..

Siggy #1 Now go back and watch the vid... crazy pressure!!! Holy shit!!

We also stepped up to help Deion Campbell and we had a new young man that rips!!!
