Hap Poneleit (Haps cycle Sarasota Florida)

If you ever met "Hap" you'd know that smile!

A tireless supporter of BMW motorcycles and all other brands.
He continued to work at his shop well into his Eighties,
not because he needed to,

he was there because he loved being around motorcycles and the people that ride them.

I admired him as a person and I wish I knew about half
of what he had forgotten about motorcycles in his lifetime.
There's a nice video of his life at his memorial website.

Here he is presenting me with my 300,000 mile award.

A true enthusiast, pioneer and just a genuinely all-around great guy. He will be sorely missed and remembered with great fondness.
