Johnny was raised to see the world. His mother gave him the longest of leashes as he explored the world 10 miles away at age 10 on his bike. He was allowed to climb on minibikes at an early age. Since then, he is embarrassed to tell people about his life because even when he tries people tend to not believe him, so he doesn't. He is more interesting in the present anyway. But to be brief: He has had eight lives and is working on number nine. Most of his life has been spent running rivers, skiing mountains, sailing, sea kayaking and surfing the oceans, trekking the remote mountain ranges in the world, hunting, fishing, and mostly hanging out around campfires. He finally 'settled down' when he accidentally rediscovered motorcycles in his late thirties. His restless soul is now at peace. He has found his true home on everything two wheels, which includes writing about it.
