Blonde female rider Heather Ward has written an inspirational book – “Fat Bob and the Blonde – Girl Torque” – about her lap of Australia on a Fat Bob towing a trailer.
But even more inspiring is the fact that she is back on the bike after a major crash and is now planning a national promotional book tour.
“I suffered a limb-threatening injury on 23 September 2016 when the headlight on a borrowed motorcycle I was riding at the time failed as I crossed a bridge at night just outside Yungaburra, Queensland,” she says.
“Oh the irony! I rode around Australia in 2014/2015 on nomadic adventures, towing a camper trailer and nothing happened. Then I had an accident less than a kilometre from where I was living.”
Heather spent a frustrating year and a half recovering from her injuries.
