Product Description


''A pithy throbber of a book' ' Chris Stewart (Author of Driving Over Lemons) ''Good tomes for bikers are few and far between, but Tom Cunliffe's account of an epic trip deserves to battle for bookshelf space with Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.'' Sunday Express ''There is only one way to see America and its people; chasing, finding and losing the real fantasy that is her dream, and that is astride a motorcycle ... Listening to Cunliffe'll understand why.'' The Metro '' of the most fresh, raw and honest travel books I have ever read...throbs with all the verve and excitement of the open road...'' Irish Tatler ''Pure Magic.' ' Yachts and Yachting ''Funny, self deprecating, compassionate, shrewd, beautifully observed and subtly evocative, Good Vibrations deserves to be a classic in its own right.'' Cruising Magazine ''Brilliantly entertaining.'' Southern Daily Echo ''Book of the month: Two Brits astride the quintessential "dream machine", the Harley Davidson, describe a portion of modern America on their travels from trailer park culture to Psycho-style motels, an encounter with Hurricane Bertha and an eclectic collection of people from moonshiners, ol' blues men to hillbillies.'' The Book Pl@ce

I love any 'outsiders' look at the USA and their different perspectives and that perhaps the USA is still too young a country to have developed a defining culture. Also preparing to do a similar ride through the US this year and enjoyed the sharing of the experience. What surprised me about their personal journey the focus on the people they met vs. just the touristy things one might expect from a circumnavigation of the USA.

REAL biker riders...not posers April 6 2015
By Rodney Fridley - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very bold move to make a trip like that. The book was well written and the content was relevant to cross country bikers. My hat is off to Roz for toughing it out on that Sportster. My 1st Harley was a 77 Sportster and that thing used to beat me to death on the open road. I would ride with these 2 anytime, anywhere.

An interesting and entertaining read, I like the way Tom Cunliffe writes, actually it was over too soon for me I was disappointed to reach the end of the book.

This could have been a very interesting travel narrative.

I really tried to make it work, but gave up reading it after about 80 pages.

It is just very poorly written. Long rambling sentences and strange word usage make for a strange and confusing jumble that will leave you with a headache.

There are far better biker stories out there. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.
