I first heard of barf in 2002 on the AFM racing mailing list...racers were like "omg look at these vomit-named street squids and their Bux meets."

Sort of an unnecessary divisive feeling back then in 2002ish that thankfully merged into harmony.

Can't imagine how long it took to assemble this history thread Budman, well done sir!

I remember many great conversations with Steve. Usually about Porsches or bike suspension tuning. Most memorable was giving him shit about that stupid center stand on his ZZR600...... that finally bit him only a few weeks after our conversation.

Many of those original members got hooked on the track.... and I credit Barf for a lot of that. Which was good as I remember a lot of those group rides on Mines and Hamilton exceeding track pace (and all the crashes.... myself included). Heck, I even tried my hand at a few races in the old CCS series because of members. Met lots of good folks those years.

After a nearly 10 year hiatus from dirtbikes, Barf was instrumental in hooking me up with folks to ride with. When my regular Baja crew drifted away from dirtbikes for other life commitments, it was Barf again that was key in putting folks together again.

Budman, a huge and sincere than you for all you do in keeping this forum going. It truly is different from anything else online in a good way. I sure I am not alone in saying this, but Barf has enriched mine and many others motorcycle lifestyle!

Thanks Budman!

Well, I appreciate getting a shout out for my old race report, a good trip down memory lane.

Couldn't have picked one of my build threads, though?

Awesome Job BudMan!

I can still remember the days of being part of the MIRC board with Mike Solis aka MrCrash before joining in and BARF'ing around.

Great thread Budman!

BARF has been a huge part of my adult life. Going through your timeline jogged great memories.
Joined BARF in March 2002 to post up about my stolen bike (1st bike). 30+ bikes later, still here. Made many friends.. bought and sold many things.. learned so much. Helped a few people.


Known BARF longer than my kid! LOL been part of many forums but nothing keeps going like BARF. Great job by you and all the mods / contributors..

Appreciate the kind words.

I am still supplementing the thread guys..a bunch of sloshball stuff added. Some UBOB... who knows what else as I continue this first couple weeks of '17.

Adding a pic or two to each year as well.

Wow, 15 years already !?!?! How time flies!!!!!
Bud, it's really cool of you to research and post this amazing walk down memory lane.
Barf sure has changed for the better after all these years with the hard work of you and the mods.
I'll do my best to make the coming summer Barf bash.
