With great sadness one our Norsemen family members (BARNEY LARSON) passed on Saturday Morning January 6, 2018.
Anybody who rides motorcycles in Minnesota recognizes the name of Barney Larson.
The Larson family starting with Barney and Karen, and his parents (Milt and Evie Larson) were founding members of the Norsemen Motorcycle Club in the early 1960’s. Barney lived it, breathed it, worked it, and made his living through the world of Motorcycles. Barney would come to every Norsemen Monthly meeting for over fifty years and was part of many decisions that have helped the Norsemen Motorcycle club be one of the best around.
As you can see from the picture from the mid 1960’s the Norsemen racers proudly wore the bright red Norsemen racing gear. Barney loved riding motorcycles and was an excellent competitor in his day.
In 1974, Barney and Karen took over the ownership of Larson’s Cycle in Cambridge, Minnesota and they ran and owned what has become and continues to be a premier Motorcycle dealer in Minnesota.
Mike Larson with the Larson Cycle family continued to carry on the legacy of the Larson family. We are all blessed to have such fine people in our lives.
Besides living and breathing the motorcycle world through their occupation, Barney and Karen and family were at all the Norsemen events working with the Norsemen Family of members with sign up, check points, and most apparent with Barney – taking tickets and collecting the $. And the off roaders will always remember Barney handling the starts at the Norsemen Enduros with his rubber chicken assistant.
The list of Barneyisms is extensive and so interesting – but most importantly right now is that we at the Norsemen are very sadden and will miss him dearly.
God Speed Barney!
