Every time I'm on a road trip. I think back to this book and Dave Barr. Double Amputee who rode his fully loaded up 800 pound 1972 Harley FLH around the world .. including across Africa, South America, Siberia..and all with two prosthesis for legs. I highly recommend this book to anyone that's ridden anywhere on a bike. I think of him often when I feel totally stranded out in the middle of nowhere and how he managed.. puts it all into perspective, and every problem I encounter pails in comparison.
