    Did we lose him or is his health just bad?

    No matter what, positive thoughts to his family.

    Unfortunately Arnie passed away from an apparent heart attack after completing a flat track race at Perris Speedway. He will be missed!

    Wow, that really is a bummer to hear about Arnie. Saw him at the Noobs rally this year and he was the lucky raffle winner for the Mosko Moto prize.

    I'll always wonder which DV Noobs moment Arnie liked better, the hug with Ashley or this

    Thanks Joel - much like all who knew Arnie I'm gutted by the loss of my grilling partner, riding buddy and friend. No doubt many of us can say that chasing Arnie - or in my particular case TRYING to chase Arnie - around the deserts & mountains of the west made you a better rider and simply being around him and his ever positive spirit undoubtedly made you a happier person.

    I know I'm not the only one that will miss him terribly.

    For those that have been asking there will be a celebration of Arnie's life on Saturday September 30th, 2pm at the Ramona Fairgrounds located at 421 Aqua Ln, Ramona, CA 92065
