Barr, an American who joined the South African Defence Force, lost his legs when his Jeep hit a landmine in Angola while he was Colonel Jan Breytenbach's machine gunner. He left the army and embarked on a lifelong quest to help other disabled people come to terms with their disabilities. Barr has earned himself a place in the Guinness Book of Records and a place of pride for both him and his bike in the Harley Davidson Hall of Fame. He covered 132 000km over three and a half years.

The aim of his tour is to raise awareness for what people with physical disabilities can achieve and to increase public awareness of the role of the Quad-Para Association of South Africa. The Leonard Cheshire Foundation will be the beneficiary.

The party of eight, which includes two friends from the US and support staff, will be hosted in George by Vossie Vosloo, owner of Thunder Cycles in York Street. "While the Thunder Cycles staff are checking the mechanics on his motorbike, all Georgians are invited to come and meet Dave at my showroom from lunchtime on Monday 20 April," said Vosloo. Breytenbach is expected to welcome Dave Barr to the Garden Route.

The public will have a second opportunity to meet Barr at a dinner sponsored by the Dros restaurant and wine cellar. Barr is expected to address a large crowd at the Protea Hotel King George that evening, from about 18:00. "The interest in his visit is growing by the day. George is really opening its heart. The Protea Hotel King George is also sponsoring David and his entourage's accommodation. There will be no entrance fee, but donations can be made to the cause," said Vosloo.

We hope to see all Georgians come and support this heartwarming cause and to enjoy this day with us !!

Dave Barr visiting George 20 May 2015
This inspi­ra­tional tour to raise aware­ness for Cheshire Homes and the Quad­Para Asso­ci­a­tion of South Africa

http://chutzpah.org.za/

6500km around SA with no legs and a motorbike

Join Dave Barr and his Rough Rid­ers for the adven­ture of a lifetime.

Leav­ing on the 15th of April 2015 from the Ann Hard­ing Cheshire Home in Rand­burg, Dave Barr will tour on a Harley David­son 1200 Sport­ster around South Africa, Vis­it­ing Cheshire Home in Cape Town, PE, Dur­ban and Johan­nes­burg, and meet­ing more of the won­der­ful peo­ple of South Africa

The worlds most remark­able dis­abled man will be vis­it­ing your area soon.

Dave Barr, an Amer­i­can man who joined the SADF, lost his legs when his Jeep hit a land­line in Angola while Dave was the leg­endary Colonel Jan Breytenbach’s machine gun­ner. Dave recov­ered and after return­ing to com­bat duties on prosthesis’s, finally left the army and embarked on a life­long quest to help other dis­abled peo­ple come to terms with their disabilities.

Dave chose Cheshire Homes as his favoured char­ity as it had been started by another sol­dier, the VC win­ner Leonard Cheshire of WW2.

Dave took on the almost unbe­liev­able chal­lenge of cir­cum­nav­i­gat­ing the world , alone, on his Harley David­son motor­cy­cle. No-​one, never mind a dis­abled per­son, had ever done this before. In 1994, Dave com­pleted 132 000km and entered the Guin­ness Book of World Records for the first of three entries. After this stu­pen­dous feat, he also criss-​crossed Aus­tralia and crossed Siberia in win­ter , alone on his Harley. Dur­ing his jour­neys, Dave gave moti­va­tional talks to dis­abled peo­ple and raised money for the world-​wide Cheshire Homes organisation.

This year Dave returns again to South Africa, where it all started, and he asks your sup­port in his ride around the whole coun­try to help the dis­abled bik­ers and ex-​servicemen in South Africa.

Dave will give a soul stir­ring talk of his adven­tures and aims to inspire us all.
