Ghost Rider-Travels on the healing road

Neil Peart, drummer from RUSH ( a progressive rock band)  documents his time after losing his 19 y/o  Daughter in a car crash and his Wife a year later from cancer. He takes off on his motorcycle  for a time to try to figure things out. A good but depressing read. His world view is decidedly different than mine but i really enjoyed his writing style and his love of adventure.

Another book where Charley Boorman is riding his motor Bike. This time he is doing the hardest race in the world. The Dakar. It goes across Africa, countless kilometers ( whatever those are) and See's plenty of people drop out before the end. He trains, doe's some small races to prepare but what can you do in such a circumstance. Just ride i guess. Read it.
