Davo Jones - 2009 IBR

Just posted on the IBA website:

We are sad to report that the President of the Iron Butt Association of Australia and Australia's Far Riders, David Jones, known the world over by his nickname, Davo, passed away late last night on Friday, September 4, 2009, as a result of hitting a deer on US-95 shortly after crossing into the U.S. from Canada during the Iron Butt Rally. This was posted by a representative of the family on the FarRiders forum earlier today: It is with the heaviest heart and with many tears in my eyes as I type this from Davo's computer, but we just received the phone call that no one wants to receive. The nurse just called to inform us that Davo has just passed away. As I sit here at his desk, I look around and I see items and photo's that Davo treasured. There are photo's of him and Wil together, photo's of the kids, and his "GO FAR" number plate surrounded by his Iron Butt Association plate cover and his numerous IBA certificates that demonstrate his love and passion for distance riding. Throughout today, I have fielded many, many phone calls from people from both here in Australia and overseas all relating small stories of how Davo enthused, motivated and/or encouraged them beyond what they thought they were capable of. And this typifies the type of guy he was. He was always so energetic and full of life. It is a crying shame to see it cut short - although if Davo had a choice, we all know he wouldn't have it any other way. He was living life to full and doing what he enjoyed. While we all are going to deal with this in different ways, Davo would always want us to adopt his attitude and look on the bright side. He would want us to remember the fun times and fond memories that each of us have with him. On behalf of everyone sitting here in the room with me as I type this, a massive thank you for the support that you guys have out poured so far. It is very much appreciated. I will come back on here when we have more news about the arrangements that I am sure a lot of people will want info on. At this time, FarRiders is the best source of information: http://farriders.com/forum/index.php...26947#msg26947 Our prayers and thoughts are with Davo and his family. Michael Kneebone


RIP Davo.

Re: Davo Jones - 2009 IBR

From Davo's Facebook page, a fun time for Fletcher, Davo and Myself in Bryon Bay, Australia. Davo took time out of his business schedule to ride with us for a day and to meet some FarRiders at a dinner one night.

Rest in Peace my friend..... It's Just a Road!
