+1 on the "Jonah is a hero" part. Plus all your writing, even unedited, is great reading. Can't wait for the book.

And he is one of the nicest, most down-to-earth people you could meet.

Ask him about a RallyMoto race in South Carolina, and running out of gas on the way to the start.

I was asking Dave about that a few months ago at a local trail ride. It is funny how he acts like it really wasn't a big deal, he said motorcycle boots are a lot like a cast anyway. He claimed the only really hard part was when his electric start broke and he had to kick start the bike.

I can only hope to be this tough if I go through something like that.
