Famed and noted long distance rider John Ryan was killed Sunday in a motorcycle accident in northern New Jersey. Ryan was the subject of book "The Man Who Would Stop At Nothing" penned by Melissa Holbrook Pierson, chronicling the life of Ryan as a long distance rider. Ryan was also a speaker at the Very Boring Rally last August in Duluth and was noted for the "NASA" patch on a very well-worn Aereostich Roadcrafter suit that he kept on round the clock. John was a member of the Iron Butt Association as are some members of the Ironworks Motorbike Club. Godspeed, John.
