Book Description

July 1 2012

Bonjour - Is This Italy? offers a unique and often hilarious insight into the challenges and excitement afforded by a lone motorcycle journey though Europe. In his quest to escape the frantic nature of London life, Kevin Turner heads south across France, crossing the Alps into Italy, and onto Rome, before returning via Germany – and the treacherous Nürburgring. Throughout, the author provides valuable advice to those considering a similar journey, noting the best and most scenic routes, where to stay, and what to see. This is interspersed with a raft of comic anecdotes that demonstrate exactly what NOT to do when lost on a motorbike in Europe.

Product Description


If you like a dash of fun and hilarity with your travel, this is one for you ... It is an entertaining, nay gripping, tale which paints a wonderful picture of not only discovering part of Europe but becoming absorbed in the discovery. The best compliment I can pay Kevin is to say that the next time he and the bike head off, I want to go with them! Shropshire Magazine

About the Author

Since passing his motorbike test nearly ten years ago, Kevin Turner has ridden far and wide across the UK and Europe, writing about his experiences for various websites and publications, including the industry-leading Motorcycle News. Past trips have taken Kevin from the Alps to the Pyrenees, from Rome to the beaches of Normandy ... although most conclude with a few laps of the Nürburgring, to which he is hopelessly addicted. A professional journalist, Kevin also writes regular review features, covering motorcycles, equipment, events, and kit. A spirit of adventure (and occasional recklessness), coupled with much self-deprecating humor, pervades his writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonjour - Is This Italy? A Hapless Bikers Guide To Italy Aug. 25 2012
By POLLY - Published on
Thought I would give this one a Womans review !!!

I have to admit I know not a lot about bikes or bikers for that matter, but nevertheless, as this book was recommended to me by a friend decided to give it a go.

I am so glad I did, this is a truly interesting read, entertaining and funny but also informative and wonderfully illustrated.

Heading south across France with not much idea of a final destination is something we all feel like doing at some point in our lives, and I thoroughly enjoyed taking this journey with you through your book. What an achievement, well done Kevin Turner may you go on to produce many more of these fabulous adventures.

This is a brilliant 5 star read.
4.0 out of 5 stars A charming, excentric little book. The Gearhead tour notes. July 28 2013
By D. Aarons - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A mostly well written, idiosyncratic diary of Mr. Turner's month long motor bike tour in Europe. He visits the shrines and attractions of Gearhead Italy and France with a detour into Germany in pursuit of Love (and Nurburgring). The tale is fleshed out with tips and anecdotes about motorcycle touring, navigation and the weather. His daily entries, annotated and enhanced into a nice little book, trace his visits to tracks and factories essential to the Motor-Enthusiasts experience. He is an amusing and self-deprecating writer who keeps one eye on the road and one on the people and culture around him. Not deep but an entertaining little book for a sunny afternoon with a broken cycle.
