Christopher “Thumper” Kenshol
December 16, 1959 – March 28, 2021

Chris Kenshol, better known internet wide as Thumper, biker message board and long time Biker News Network contributor, passed away on March 28, 2021 after a long illness. He’s best known for his wit and sheer honesty. He’d be there for you when you needed him, at the drop of a dime, or he’d tell you “Fuck you, you fucking fuck” even faster.

If you’ve ever read news on this site, or hung out on the message board here, you always saw him for what seemed like 24 hours a day. He kept this place running over the years when no one else would. If not for him, the Biker News Network would have died years ago. We will not let this site die with him. As we have for the past 24 years, we will continue to bring you the best news on the web. We hope you help us honor Thumperrrr by logging in and leaving him a message on the GBNF board.

Thumper, my brother, you will be missed. Til Valhalla, Rest in Peace.
