I've met Dave Barr on a couple of occasions and he is one tough dude! - no other way to describe it. He reckons that not having legs (below the knee on one side and above the knee on the other) helps at low temperatures as his circulation can cope better. Also, he doesn't need to wear warm boots!
In case you didn't know, Dave's adventures include riding round the world on a 1970's Harley Superglide; one of the last bikes you'd choose, even if you hadn't had your legs blown off in a landmine explosion... He was one of the first western riders to cross China. His book is humbling....
