Arno while you might be gone in a used up body you will forever still be with us. keeping twisting that throttle where ever you are.
Give Salima a touch on the shoulder every now and then so she knows you watching over her.

With much respect for both of you

Couldn't have said it better, you'll always be in my thoughts my friend. I'm sure our paths with cross again, until then enjoy your time with Salima and know that you're always going to be in our hearts.

Wow. I have only read about him on MV and I feel I know him. I can't imagine how hard it was to type up the farewell post. Crying or Very sad emoticon

I got to know a bit better when we discussed that property on the Big Island...wished I had gotten to know you better. We will all miss you.

I will say a blessing for you, "Namu Daishi Henjo Kongo".

It's a Buddhist chant/blessing for those are on a journey or pilgrimage.

Once for the O Dai Sama (holy one), once for everyone and once for yourself.

Bless you!

Oh so very sorry to hear that Arno has reached the end of such journey. Difficult at times, but I believe he lived life as he wanted.

Salima, you have been a rock and though I never had the pleasure of meeting you, I did ride with Arno a few times before you stole his heart and he left to be with his love.

Arno, our hearts and minds are with you now. Thank you both for sharing your very personal story with us.

Wow Arno, you were such a unique and powerful force in the scooter community. I remember your helpful posts and your desire to learn and share more. But my memories will be of you on our Wrightwood Ride and how everyone realized just how beautiful the day was by your observations. I enjoyed our conversations because you were witty, thoughtful and sometimes sarcastic. I wish the world had more time with you.

-tears and memories-
Thank you, Salima, for so graciously giving us this chance to say farewell to our friend. You have rightly never been called selfish; and here again you are breaking your own heart over and over to convey the wishes of our hearts to Arno. (thank you SD - very much from my real heart; not my sarcastic one that you remember not-so-well)

Hey Arno - really? Just up and leaving? -insert my wry smile-
We have shared the road, good friends, and the internetz together. Actually, you over-shared your damned swollen ball story in the first place.... so I guess we've also shared your balls.
Thank you for being. Period. Your "being" has made an actual impact on real people - I hope you see how amazing that is. Yes, you can hear the impact of those who have posted above me, and those who will post below me. But you've also found, shared, created and loved in front of us all, and your return gift of being able to articulate it has proven to be exactly that tangible inspiration.

I have always had one photo saved in my hard drive(s) over the years, in my Custom Paint Inspiration folder. Only only picture of one scooter in there - and it is yours. Over the years I have collected many pictures of the same color on the car model that originated it; I have collected the exact paint codes. You and I have even spoken about it in great detail. In my mind, I have been preparing to paint my rusty old P200 "Arno's color" for about 6 years now - but never, ever ever would I have thought it would be a tribute bike. Arno - when I make it happen it will carry all of your spirit in it. You will stay with me always - not as a scooter color, but as a real friend to the cruel world around you. Here, within this group, you found humor and support to face your battles, and a brave wife to valiantly confront it with you.

Arno, just like in life- I wish you always full throttle and an open road in front of you. Find us a shady spot up ahead and we'll meet up later.....

Your friends in the Inland Empire
Arno, through your posts on MV, and the trials and tribulations that occasionally seemed to follow, and from which you did not retreat have given me insight into the man behind the green Vespa.

Your scrappy on-line demeanor and steadfastness in your beliefs are obviously who you are, not just your on-line persona. You stand/defend your ground regardless of how popular or un-popular the issue, and the battle you've been courageously fighting against this illness is no different. It speaks volumes.

I was always pleased (complimented actually) that you found/made time to join us "all the way out in Temecula" for some of our rides to points unknown. I took your attendance as a bit of an "endorsement" of our little sampling of scootering hiways and byways out this way....and the efforts involved in sharing them with others. Thank you for adding to the melange!

More noteworthy in the mosaic of things I often reflect on, is the union you made via that Vespa and this community with Salima and the journey you've both jointly been on, both on and off those scooters. Fairy tale stuff there. Legendary. (Salima desrves her own post....but this is all about you!)

Thank you Arno, for being that scrappy Vespa-aficionado and the un-varnished Arno we've all come to know, and....?

You are an inspiration to me for how to live a life. On your own terms.

May your best journey ever lie ahead of you Arno. I believe it does.

Courage under fire. I saw that quality in you during our time in Italy together and it impressed the shit out of me. You would not let your illness intrude upon your life one more inch (maybe millimeter for you) more than it had to. I'll think of you in the future every time I need to gather courage and every time I try to fight the urge to leave tips for European waitstaff. I'll try to summon a small fraction of the strength you mustered regularly but I'm afraid I'm still going to get you angry by tipping my waiter.

It's so hard to say goodbye in any case and certainly hard when you know it's your last goodbye.

But we know how tough Salima is and that she'll continue on as best she can.

Thanks for sharing your trials and tribulations over the last years.

Very hard to read, and harder to accept. I am in awe of how Arno has lived life on his own terms, and how, even here at the jumping off point, he has the class and presence of mind to turn back one last time to say thanks and wave goodbye.

Arno, I believe that we are meant to extract every possible joy from every moment of this life. And I believe that we are destined for a better place when this life is done.

You have lived each day as if it was the last. I pray that whatever comes next be a fitting reward for the challenges you faced so bravely in this life.

Shalom.

Sigh.

Arno.

I know you are surrounded by love in Salima. Know others care.

Love has kept your soul strong, and helped you shine through to those around you during this time.

In both finding and deserving that love, you've accomplished the single most important thing we can in out lives.

My kudos to that.

Arno and Salima,

All that can be said has been shared with you by others in the previous posts on this thread. I've never met either of you, yet I can witness the compassion and love for you by those messages.

Heck, I don't think I have ever seen a thread with as many 'old timers' posting on it as this one - nothing could be a greater testament to the feelings for you here on MV.

May all of your scooter rides be long and adventurous...

I like many have followed Salima and Arno's journey over the years, more so the last 3-4.

It's difficult to express how moving it is to read all these heart felt sentiments. It's heart wrenching.

I know I'm not the only one crying right now.

You are a loved soul Arno.

I'm sure you are at peace with Salima by your side.

I'm German too but I've always loved this blessing. Not an Irish bone in the body.
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again,
May God (in whomever you believe) hold you in the palm of their hand

I believe you hold the record for the number of MV aliases so just make sure we know how to find you. Razz emoticon Laughing emoticon we'll meet again someday,of that I'm sure.
