Default Dave Barr

Here is the official website of Dave Barr who is a great inspiration to me. Dave Barr is a double amputee who single handedly rode a Sportster across Siberia in the dead of winter.

But since he doesn't have six yellow shirts and ain't nailing Sheryl Crow we've never heard of him. Crazy how the world works.

Thanks for sharing Bert.

Dave Barr is a real American hero and all should know who he is.Long before the Sporty he rode a '72 Shovelhead around the world, that's incredible in and of it's self let alone doing it with no legs.
