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. Despite living the good life in Texas, his girlfriend, Sunshine, knows as well as he does that no matter how happy Axe might be, he’ll always have demons inside to battle.He trades his current ride, the Goat, for its steroid-pumped younger cousin, the Cadillaxe. After equipping the triple black beauty with mirror-mounted radar detection and thermal vision, he takes a test run to Colorado and back. Next he finishes building the most exotic chopper of his career and rides this chrome steed to Daytona Beach. But neither of these vehicles or trips are enough for his insatiable need for adrenaline.Finally, the idea of riding his BMW S1000RR motorcycle from the Pacific to the Atlantic consumes his twisted mind. Axe prepares by modifying the BMW, installing the latest gadgetry, and training. Eventually, brains pass the torch to balls as it becomes clear the task is not intended for the weak or sensible. Through pure determination, the leather-clad biker shatters the record for the fastest motorcycle ride across America.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Have you ever wished you did something big? Like breaking a world record, or just checking off something you wished you've always done? Well, why don't you? Axe did that; in fact, he does that all the time. The idea of riding across the country, solo, not just to drive but to break the record for motorcycles is something most ordinary people don't even think about, let alone actually plan out and try. Axe did that. And he wrote it all down in a style that is a combination of well-established, well-drilled planning and stream of consciousness, spur of the moment thinking. It's not just a great story, but also motivation for all of us. Why keep thinking about what you wish you could do and why not just go ahead and plan it out and do it? Otherwise we'd all regret the things we could have done.
I just finished reading Axe's book, "No Limits, No Regrets". It's the story of his race across America to beat the record for fastest motorcycle ride from coast to coast. While I don't share his ridiculous need for speed and adrenaline highs, I love the primary message about living life without limits and without regret. Too many people get caught up in the day to day routine of life and never really strive for much more than getting by. They may have dreams and ambitions when they're young, but something prevents them from believing in and going for what they really want. It's much better to try and fail than never attempt anything great and then live with regrets. Congrats to Axe for setting a clear vision of what he wanted, deciding it was going to happen, and then taking the necessary steps to carry it out. He knew it wouldn't be easy, but his desire was strong enough that nothing could get in his way.
What a ride! When it comes to books, my attention span is quite limited, but "No Limits - No Regrets" did a great job of keeping my interest throughout. I am far from being an adrenaline junkie, but I sure did enjoy reading about this guy's thought process and planning of how to speed across the U.S. from coast to coast in minimal time and actually follow through with it. Axe's book gave me motivation to do more of the exciting things I used to do, but have let go to the wayside. I recommend this book to anybody looking for a fast paced read with comic relief sprinkled throughout.
