Book Description

April 15 2008
This book is designed to fill the reader with the confidence to plan and undertake a journey that he might otherwise not have thought possible. It will appeal to the person who has the means, both financially and otherwise, to consider a motorcycle adventure, as well as to those who might never be able to do so. In this way it will be both inspirational and aspirational. The book delivers a practical and simple approach to planning for and embarking on a successful adventure on two wheels. A motorcycle journey of this sort is a significant undertaking and guiding the reader in the best possible way through the planning process is where the book’s unique difference lies, providing insightful information, handy tips and specific, relevant information that first-time adventure riders will need to know.

2.0 out of 5 stars rich on photos - lean on content March 24 2011
Format:Hardcover
There is an earnest effort by the author to be informative and cover all the bases... but frankly, if you need to be told to bring your passport on a 'round-the-world trip, you have no business going on one. The content of this book is thin, at best. Mostly, though, the reader may be compelled to say "well, d'uh!" at its silly obviousness. The photos look to have been skimmed from BMW brochures and Touratech catalogs. A foolish and over-simplified offering akin to "an amateur's guide to climbing Everest".

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent addition to the genre Dec 26 2008
By Derek Schin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It was very easy for me to arrive at my rating for this book; it's better than Riding the World: The Biker's Road Map for a Seven Continent Adventure but not quite as good as the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook, 5th: Worldwide Motorcycling Route & Planning Guide (Trailblazer).

However, I certainly recommend buying this book in addition to the AMH, especially if you truly are planning a long-distance motorcycle ride. The book is well-designed and has many fantastic photos from around the world. The advice is very helpful, and even if it doesn't cram quite as much actual advice in as the AMH, it's still an extremely valuable resource. Well-written and researched, this book deserves to be on your shelf.

Even if you're only dreaming of a long ride before you get this book, actually reading it and poring over the beautiful pictures will push you over the brink. Back to planning my route...

4.0 out of 5 stars adventure riding book review Oct. 8 2008
By G. Neuenfeldt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Having ridden off-road the length of Baja in Mexico and done other adventure riding, I've been looking for books on the subject. This book seems to be one of the better ones out there, and covers a majority of the information needed to have a successful ride in and to other countries. The photography is also very good. I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure Motorcycling by R. Wick Sept. 16 2008
By L. Jasek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to get into adventure motorcycling (or just dreaming about it). It has all the info you need to get started planning and what you need to know before you go as well as what you need to take with you. It is well thought out and written, and even includes three ride summaries in the back. Lots of great color photos too. I recommend this book for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starter and easy reader April 14 2009
By T. Durden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Great book, very nicely laid out, lots of great pictures and the author obviously knows the Adventure motorcycling scene. Perfect book to leave out on your coffee table. Perfect for the beginner or intermediate traveller and provides great getting started information. May be a bit fluffy for the hard core rider/traveller, but its a great read. My only negative feedback is that the bike review section only has the UK models available, would be nice to have a North American version and have those models reviewed. Other than that - its great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful July 17 2010
By B. Bates - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book useful in transitioning from touring to adventure touring. Pretty much knew all the information already, so maybe it was intended more for the beginner.
