Hi all,

This is the fifth of six videos in a short series from interviews with John and Jack Penton and the late Dane Leimbach for the forthcoming film, "The John Penton Story" narrated by Grammy Winner, Lyle Lovett.

In this short piece, Dane Leimbach describes his favorite ISDT event in 1976 and how the bikes that year were prepped in the US. Dane passed away in 2011 after battling ALS for several years. We are so fortunate to have captured some of his great stories about being part of the "Penton Clan" for the film before he passed.

We are dedicating this piece and today to Dane's mother Pat (John Penton's sister) who passed away just the other day. We were looking forward to including her stories in the movie but know her spirit will be there. Our hearts go out to the entire Penton and Leimbach families and friends.

Thank you for supporting the project already and if you haven't "re-pledged" again, here is the link for the new project;

We have 7 days to go with a little less than $18,000 still left to pledge.

Thanks again everyone and keep spreading the word!

As of this morning we went over the goal at $153,000 with 480 backers! Thank you Alpinestars for taking us over the top and joining Acerbis and KTM USA for great industry support!

And thank you everyone who pledged and spread the word on this!

Thank you Kickstarter and crew for making this possible and answering all my "Kickstarter Support" questions! We love you guys!

I spoke with John Penton this morning and he is very excited and I told him "Well John, looks like we're going to be spending some time together the next year or so".

But, we still have 3 days left on the campaign so others can still be part of this for as little as $1 and get some great rewards for being a "Backer" beginning at just $10.

The project will still need funds for post-production down the road with months of editing, graphics, music, mixing, archival materials processing, etc.

Maybe we can get to 500 or 750 backers by Monday night!

Thanks again!
