Van Jason Hodek A.K.A "Red"

Hey guys this is one of Van's best friends, we have known eachother since middleschool. Me, Van and Bobby (precision cycles) were really really close. We just had the memorial service for him yesterday, It was really really tough as anybody could imagine. He is going to be creamated and is going to have is ashes spread in a small town in Italy where his mother was from. Van was absoutley the most real and true person I have ever known. I didnt know of a single person that could say a bad thing about him, seriously. He would never lie to you and would give you the last dollar that he had if you asked for it. I was in a really bad wreck about 5 years ago and was in the hospital for nearly 1 1/2 months. Van was there almost everyday, even when i was in a coma for a week. Friends like that dont come around often. Its just really hard to take because he only had that dam bike for 3 weeks or so and he absoultley loved that fuking thing. Another really fuked up part is that he had just recently paid allot of money to get his brother out of jail and he finally got out the night Van passed, Will (his brother) got out at aprox 9pm, almost the exact same time the accident that was the first news that Will got when he got out. Anyways I just wanted to say thanks for all the kind words from you guys that knew him and even the ones that didnt. I saw on this thread that some of yall were thinking about doing a lil ride for him, I think that would be really cool, and I think he would have wanted us to keep riding strong also. please let me know who would be intrested in doing this so we could get something lined up, I will leave my email and phone # at bottom so you guys can get in touch with me....

RIP to my brother Red, you will be missed greatly and we will never forget you!!

Here's a pic of him and his brother about 2 yrs ago...makes me laugh every time i see it.

Did he post as red? because now that hurts even more, someone as a poster you knew as well. And I havent seen red post lately

They told me to go play in traffic, so I bought a motorcycle.

RIP. Gone but not Forgotten.
"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "

I understand the consequences of my actions prior to engaging in those actions. . .there are certain situations in life where the risk is totally worth the reward.
