The Motorcycle Cure for Cancer: Being a Motorcycle Traveler
Presenter: Peter Starr
Through following my decision to pursue a holistic approach to reversing the disease, I learned that living a ‘purposeful life’ was needed for a meaningful part of the program. This is my 60th year of riding motorcycles and I determined that motorcycle riding needed to be a part of my “purposeful life”. With that in mind I created my own bucket list of places I wanted to ride and adventures I felt I needed to experience. I set goals for myself, set a new course for my life and set about realizing those goals. After 14 years of study, practicing holistic treatment, producing a major documentary work and writing a book on the subject, some of my doctors have called me a ‘world authority on prostate cancer’, based as I see for no small part in living my life in a purposeful way through the sport that has been such a large part of my life. What follows are three extracts from my new book Motorcycle Traveler, my experiences in the 12 countries I visited in 6 years.
