In Memoriam

"PoPs" on The Duchess, smoking his pipe

On Friday, September 4, 1998, a dear friend and mentor, William J. "PoPs" Penschow died of a sudden heart attack. Unfortunately, I was not able to make either the viewing on September 8 or the funeral on September 9. I will be adding a memorial page to him here soon. Of my friend and mentor, I would like to say that he was always there to help new riders, and even some with more experience. He was a great source of knowledge and wisdom. Above all, however, he was a great friend and riding partner. I hope you can get to know him a little from the stories I have here and also from the memorial page coming soon. PoPs: may your roads be forever twisty and cager-free. I shall miss you.

On to the rest...

Well, here's a listing of what I've got so far... more will come in the future as I go on more rides.

Rides dated prior to 28 Mar 95 are on a white/black/red 1994 Honda CBR600F2. (Aug, 1994)

Anything after that is on a White/Purple/Yellow 1995 Honda CBR900RR... total squid bike :-)

    Kevin has probably the best prices that aren't mail order. He is also very knowledgeable about lots of the stuff, and can probably get you what you're looking for at a reasonable price. I've been going to him for over a year now, and he hasn't steered me wrong yet. He's located at the corner of Ocean County Routes 539 and 528 in the little shopping center. Tell him you heard about his shop over the internet from me. And yes, he does do mail orders, too. :-)

    Keith, the mechanic there, is a partner in a company which does dyno-tuning. They're called DynoMight Powersports, Inc.
