4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Story Oct. 30 2000
By Scott Peake - Published on Amazon.com
From September 1990 to May 1994, Dave Barr rode a 1972 Harley Davidson over 83,000 miles around the world, despite the loss of both his legs from an antitank mine explosion in Angola in 1981. The idea was to help raise the awareness for people with disabilities. This isn't a "how-to" but a story about where he went, who he met, the people that helped, and the hardships with both his motorcycle and disability. If you have read Jim Rogers' Investment Biker, Rogers goes around the world on a thousand dollars a day while Barr does it on a dollar a day. A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brother Returned, Ride Safe, Ride Free... Aug. 29 2000
By Clarence Holcombe - Published on Amazon.com
Dave Barr is an extraordinary human being to say the least. Despite the loss of both legs, very limited budget and an old 1972 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, he traversed six continents, covered 83,000 miles spent 3 1/2 years, crossed the Sahara, Namib and Gobi Deserts and circled the world both north to south and east to west and takes us along with him in the book. His exciting journey to raise awareness for people with disabilities is inspirational to us all, with or without disabilities. Also his sometimes humorus outlook on the diverse culture of the world, from the seat of a Harley, is an interesting anthropological study. I wanted to pack my sadlebags and go with him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable ride Aug. 6 2013

For those that ride more than to the bar and back or a few hours on a weekend. The open road and people you meet are experiences one would be hard pressed to really understand. What a challenge Dave took on.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Book about an Incredible Human Spirit July 27 2003
By Mike Zurick - Published on Amazon.com
This is a book about a man who can set very difficult goals and overcome vast obstacles to accomplish them.
This is a book written by a man who is more ENABLED than you or me.
Whether his Harley's pipes are roaring across the Sahara or Dave's lost in the Gobi, the reader is with him, experiencing the daily hardships and joy of the journey. The reader gets the feel of what it would be like to actually do this journey himself.
What a guy !!!

What this guy did was amazing.And he didn't do it on a new Road King(probably a good idea not to). I'll never make a trip like that for various reasons and appreciate reading about him risking it all.
