    I'm sure it has something to do with that Global Warming thread someplace elsewhere on this forum.

    Only to die later in a tragic car accident. At least he was kind enough to email us and let us know he had died.

    Interesting thing about "Twilight" or whatever the heck he finally called himself...?

    Nobody knows for sure...Mel rode with him to Alaska after our Moab 2015 gig and after that he just "Poof" seemed to disappear … Although if you look into the bowels of the Internet and Social Media regarding Iron Butt and Dual Sport Riding, he was a legend....or an evil curse according to some of those folks...
