Dave Barr RTW book, Riding The Edge

He lost both legs, one above the knee, then rode a Shovel RTW.

I had the pleasure of hearing him tell his story. He spoke for 3.5 hours... it was not boring.

His site. http://www.davebarr.com/

Didn't someone on here (probably several times) say that riding this road is more fun the smaller the bike. I guess this must be a blast then.

Although the bike itself looks like it's not having a very good time.

I think they have to have two tires in the back to meet load ratings.

We have a tow service and it was single vehicle accident. Ran wide on a corner, took out a few mailboxes and transformed a unique bike into a mess of metal. The guy lived.
