Perfect place for this story from Adv Rider. I’m following this RR by some locals riding down south. Firefighter rider from Baltimore I think, riding on 79 in WV sees a fire and cuts across to come to the rescue

Jay - few years ago Syphoon is leading a small group over the AMA Museum. While riding through some small town I can't remember the name there was a grass fire and a local Fire Engine at work. We lost Walt as soon as we pulled up to the scene, He was off Traveler and helping with the hose assignments. He showed up at the museum a little while later smelling like smoke.

I was on that ride!

He also will take any opportunity to jump off his bike and begin directing traffic in the middle of an intersection!
