Axe - No Limits No Regrets: Bouncing Off the Redline of Adrenaline Addiction
Jun 17 15
On April 12, 2014, Axe set of on the ride of his life, setting the record for the fastest cross-country motorcycle ride at just 33 hours and 10 minutes. That's 33:10:00. I've heard of people driving across the U.S. in 3 days, roughly 1000 miles per day. But the idea of one person, riding a motorcycle no less, crossing the U.S. in 33 hours and 10 minutes is ... crazy.
But one man's crazy is another man's day in the office.
"I'm an addict," Axe said. "It started with whiskey and girls when I was younger, and over time it evolved into adrenaline addiction. Instead of running from death, I decided to chase it at full speed for the high. Addicts never recover; they just trade one craving for another."
Axe doesn’t suffer from addiction. He relishes it. Ever since an open heart surgery tested his metal, everyday challenges just haven’t been enough. In Axe's new book, "No Limits No Regrets: Bouncing Off The Redline of Adrenaline Addiction," he details the real time struggles he endured as he rode his modified BMW S1000RR motorcycle from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic, and the incredible feeling at the end.
"Success is a function of desire. If you want something badly enough, you can do almost anything. We live in a very risk-adverse society, but this is a story about taking risks and being accountable for the outcome of those risks." - Axe
