This is a wonderful story of a real adventure undertaken quite genuinely on a shoestring and a prayer a ‘few years ago’; brave people with a fantastic feel for the narrative and beautiful expression of what they did, ignoring the dangers and possible odds that they were up against…when telephones and mobile communications, which we now take for granted, were not even thought of. Many twists and turns in a real-life situation, not escorted by camera crews and backup parties and loads of sponsors. This is the real deal! Compulsive reading! — Amazon review by Peter R Gouws
I love getting fan mail like this! Julius is a great example of being able to triumph over adversity.
Book was great ! I felt like I was with you. I was one of those guys that just did what my parents told me to.
Having been hit by a car and lost my right leg when I was 7 they were overly protective. Understandable …
I have always loved bikes but did not get up the nerve to go get one till I was 35. I am now 67 and have a Harley Road Glide Ultra. I am envious of people like yourself that knew what they wanted that early in life. I thought I did but that is a different story. I am in business for myself now and love it.
I just feel that I missed so much not getting a bike 40 years ago, but that is life and not to worry over. I feel that I get to pick up what I missed by reading books like yours.
After responding to Julius, he sent the following:
It really frustrates me that the first thing many people do is try and find 50 reasons something can’t be done.
Most people are very surprised when they learn that I have an artificial leg.
Maybe we will get to meet some time.
You’re an inspiration, Julius!
On the way to New Orleans!
