June Vintage Bike OC Meet
John Hoeinghaus 1945 - 2017 WD-40 Specialist Motorcycle

Huntington Beach, Calif. - It was a beautiful afternoon today in HB and we had a great meet even though Castañeda's Mexican Food isn't open yet. We had a good turnout of 90 bikes. There was a somber mood as many of us were missing our friend Hobo John Hoeinghaus' familiar face helping out.

Hobo John Hoeinghaus - September 20, 1945 - May 23, 2017
We are mourning the loss of our good friend Hobo John Hoeinghaus. John passed away last month and he is sadly missed. Read more here John Hoeinghaus Thank you all for sharing in a moment of silence for John today. Since his passing, I've heard from several people how special uur group was to him.
