Book Description

Feb. 1 2007 Motorcycle Journeys
California is motorcycle heaven for motorcyclists. With its year-round riding, superb routes through mountains, coasts, deserts, grand forests, and an enthusiastic and supportive motorcycle scene, it's easy to see why. In this updated and expanded new edition, Clement Salvadori, one of motorcycling's most popular journalists, guides you along some of the lesser-known motorcycling gems in California, as well as pointing the way to the unspoiled places of Mexico's Baja peninsula. Routes are often clustered around base camps, which means you can leave your luggage and explore an area unencumbered for several days. The book is filled with detailed maps, photographs, easy-to-follow directions, and tips on where to stay and what to see and do. Some of the best trips include: The Central Coast and Big Sur Highway, San Francisco and the Bay Area, Lassen National Park and the Northern Sierra Nevadas, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, Death Valley, Palm Springs, Julian and Eastern San Diego County, and of course the fabulous Baja California.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it for Baja Feb. 2 2008
By Baja Bound - Published on Amazon.com
If you're interested in exploring Baja, don't buy this edition. It covers only MEX 1. I liked the first edition so much that I bought this one for updates. The first edition had twice as many pages for Baja, including MEX 3, plus ratings on the common dirt roads. None of those are in here now. I think the only updated info was the exchange rate; they didn't even add Web sites for contact info within Mexico. I was really disappointed with this one. If you only want to travel MEX 1 it may be okay because you won't realize how much is missing, but the info is outdated and you can travel MEX 1 just fine without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read if you live in SoCal and ride a motorcyle Nov. 27 2008
By Trish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have made it my mission this year to enjoy the beauty of my home state. My husband and I both ride our own bikes and we decided to take a "home" vacation this year.
This book was essential. With the routes right there in black and white, restaurant reviews, hotel advice, road challenges a rider may face, etc..this book more than paid for itself by saving us time and money!

I'm excited for a trip there next month
4.0 out of 5 stars Clem is grwat as usual! Sept. 26 2013

I always read some Clem before every road trip. I too am a lover of travel by motorcycle and Clem's never fails to inspire. He reminds us to smell the roses and enjoy all aspects of travel and to not focus too intently on any one single aspect.

Pretty good coverage. However the author failed to mention two very important things:
First, in NoCal (particularly on the coastline) there are very few, I repeat very few road signs. So while his off the highway ventures, which I very much wanted to explore, sounded like great rides I was unable to find most of them. Even the locals admitted the paucity of signage. And the signs that existed were small and well hidden. Had he mentioned that I would have slowed when approaching his 'good" spots.
Two: It would have helped if the author had noted than NoCal coast in August is cold, wet, foggy and slippery.The roads could be a lot more fun when dry and visible. Inland was fine, save for the fact that we went from 50 degrees to 95 once we crossed into the valleys.
