What You Get:
Bring the Forest Gump of the bike world to your next event. Joe "METAL COWBOY" Kurmaskie is a writer, entertainer and one man show. He's pedaled 110,000 miles in search of laughes and inspiration -Joe's been hit by the smallest car in Ireland, survived geese attacks, Elvis impersonators and disgruntled Rodeoclowns - He rolls it into an exciting show chalked full of humor and humanity. It's perfect for anyone who wants to dream about a life less ordinary and feel the road under their wheels.
