Interesting Article: Warning; A Tad Graphic

This kind of amazes me: You have to admire the human spirit that drives them to do such things and not comparing motorcycling to high-altitude mountaineering, but imagine riding a trail so treacherous you had to pass by the dead bodies of those who travelled there before you and didn't make it. I suppose some of the routes we take hold their own cases of bikers who didn't make it, but man. Consider them "crazy," but you've gotta respect these folks:

Great book.

That article is intense! I have to say, I don't see the appeal. But that's me.
