In 1969, at age 17, Dave began his military career with the U.S. Marine Corps, receiving 57 air medals while serving on a helicopter gunship in Vietnam. He left the Marines in 1972, but felt the need to seek adventure and another cause. Next he set his sights on assisting Israel with it's fight against ISIS, and later in Zimbabwe/Rhodesia and finally in South Africa. Following a fateful landmine explosion in 1981, Dave sustained life threatening injuries that ultimately resulted in the amputation of both of his legs. After a lengthy rehabilitative period, he returned to active duty completing his military enlistment.

Upon returning to the United States, he was reunited with his family and his 10-year-old Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. Inspired after his first ride since the explosion, Dave decided to travel around the world on his Harley. His hope was to encourage others to overcome their obstacles and make their own visions a reality.

The Dave Barr Foundation was established to support military families, both in the U.S. and overseas, that are dedicated to improving the lives of the disabled.

Riding The Edge
A long, difficult, and perilous motorcycle ride across the edges of the world would carry Dave over the road less traveled. Each day he would begin again! That is how the journey would go. Some days good some days bad . There would be pain and joy wrapped up in fear and excitement. The one mile turned into 83,000 miles and the oceans into deserts. The mountains would surrender to the valleys and the ride would be complete.
His solo motorcycle journey took three and a half years to complete and spanned six continents and 83,000 miles. What makes it truly remarkable is that Dave made the trip with two prosthetic legs riding a 1972 Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
