BMW Iron Butt "John Penton" Story to be told with your help!

BMW Fans!

John Penton set the transcontinental record in 1959 on a BMW R69 and we are making a movie about his life, racing and career as Penton Motorcycles founder (now KTM). The film will be narrated by Grammy Winner and adventure rider himself, Lyle Lovett who raced motocross on Pentons and worked in a Penton dealership in Texas when he was 14.

We are utilizing Kickstarter.com to allow the public and fans help support the movie with as little as $1. You can pledge through this link:

We are almost 75% there with 14 days to go! Please pledge if you can and spread the word to get this important motorcycle story told!

Thank you all and Happy New Year!

Todd Huffman, Producer/Director
