Fallen Friends / Re: RIP Mike Anchondo ( San Di...
Last post by Flynt - July 19, 2024, 08:55:44 AM
Last time we saw Mike and Tina, Diane and I were enjoying a bottle of wine with them sitting on a hillside watching the Hayfork crowd...  I miss the WCR routine, and when something like this happens I really realize why.  Riding is only part of why the WCR was such an awesome event.  The people we meet and the stories we make together are the bigger part...

Godspeed Mike!

You have email Steve...

God speed Mike.

Mike was a soft spoken man, but always personable. I grieve for Tina and their family.

I last saw them both in the fall of 2021 and we were all happy to be together.

That is sad news. I last saw him at the hayfork rally.
   I bought a Corbin seat from him . Im pretty sure its the one pictured on his bike. I'll think of him when I ride my 84 1100 I have the seat installed on.

It is with deep sadness that I have to let all know that Mike Anchondo has passed away this morning.  My sincere and heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Tina and family. 
For those that attended the 2010 Rally and beyond Mike was a regular attendee and my riding buddy all these years.  I will miss on my future rides and miss the wine tasting adventures. 

I am not sure of services yet but for those that do want to pay their respects email me at moparman70@gmail.com and I will be glad to share the information as I know it.

( I hope the pics load correctly -- of 2010 Rally and Current

Godspeed My Friend.

I have had lots of bikes since this, XJR1300, FRJ1300, Bandit 1250, Fazer 1000, and although were all nice bikes I never enjoyed riding them as much as the old FJ

Funny that.
Was at a Sacramento dealership yesterday, looking at the new metal, with Rocket Ron and Kenn.
A guy rolls over and says, wow an Fj. I had one of those, sold it and bought and FZ1; it's nowhere near as comfortable. I sure do miss that Fj.
As you can imagine it made my day and saved me thousands of dollars.
Keep em. Ride em.

Yep, agree with Pat; replace with fully manual older style petcock and rejoice that you discovered this wisdom while parked at home.
Mine did the dirty way up on highway 101 and involved mercy calls to RPM and postage and packing to Oregon, but the adventure continued and all was good.
