He often spread joy to me and others, at sooo many social events, just by being there.

Great post, Dennis! And Connie, thanks for the reminder to hug each other NOW -- before it's too late... and to be kind and loving.

Too bad, one of the few Barfers I met in person. I remember HoHo asking my Barf handle and I said, "Ratsblast." Took one look at my bike and said, "makes sense."

Thank you for the pictures Dennis. I can't imagine the depth of loss and grief that his family must be feeling now.

I didn't know he was going through this... I met him at a rally, really nice dude. I remember following him and looking at his toes hanging a bit low on that triumph, I was so concerned and focused on his toes that I forgot to watch the road and went full speed off the road behind him at that rally. Every time I saw him afterwards, we'd still make jokes about that. RIP dude

The Hoho picture with the phone leaning on the beer glass got me.
bike X miles=smiles
smiles ÷ bike=miles
smiles ÷ miles=bike.
It's simple math.

The BARF family delivers. Hoho brought so much love to the community, and you guys return it in spades (or whatever).

We are all so lucky to have each other. Thank you Hoho for making me appreciate that.
Hodaka Ace 90. I've been riding these things too long. What can I say? How about that Combat Wombat?

So I just discovered today that Hoho was my uncle. I called my grandmother on Saturday night to wish her Happy Mother's Day. We have a quick conversation and she manages to lecture me about riding my motorcycle. Tells me her nephew just died. A name I've never heard before, for some reason he was not close to our side of the family. This afternoon I paid her a visit and she showed me some recent pictures and I immediately recognized a few familiar faces, faces of people from BARF that I've met and some that I haven't. I'm not a very active member of this forum, and don't really attend social events, but I've met a few of you. My family told me how people kept coming to visit Horace in the hospital during his final days and were amazed at the amount of love and support he had. It warms my heart to know that he was such a beloved member of this community. My family showed me pictures of him in the hospital and he looked so happy (given his predicament) thanks to the support from the wonderful people of this community. I only wish I had met him earlier and got to know him, he sounds like a remarkable guy.
