Harley Davidson Dealers For US & Canada by Dave817


Wasn't sure where to post this, so thought it best here where many might look.

dave817 (dave726 in other forums) is the gentleman who, for many years, kept the US & Canada H-D Dealers list updated on POI-Factory (he did both the HD dealers and the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives lists on the previous US based zumoforums.com then on the UK based www.zumouserforums.co.uk after zumofourms shut down)

Dave was local to me, had his personal email. Sent an email after checking for updated list and found the last being August, 2018.

Got this reply:
This is not Dave but Ruth, his fiancé. I’m sorry to tell you this but Dave passed away December 1, 2018. He’s forever riding with the wind in his face, breathing all that nature has to offer.

Replied to her with:
Very sorry for your loss!

Never met Dave face to face, but he was always happy to help with his maintaining the list of Harley Dealers and the Diners, Drive-ins & Dives locations and answering other questions on the zumo forums... his dedication will be missed.

My best to you and the rest of Dave's family.



It's one of the difficult things in online communities, when someone passes or has a life altering event, we often have no way of knowing unless someone contacts us.

Thanks for letting us know, Bogie.
