Join Clement Salvadori, one of the most popular motorcycle journalists of our day, as he personally leads you on a tour South of the Border. From TJ to Cabo, Salvadori knows Baja, having been a regular explorer of this grand peninsula for more than twenty years. Somewhere in between the must-see and the better-left-to-your-imagination spots of tourism and commerce, exists nearly 800 miles of the real thing: luxuriously uninhabited beaches, charming adobe missions, quaint fishing villages--most as yet unspoiled by modern man.
Unlike other guidebooks, Motorcycle Journeys through Baja rates road conditions from the saddle of a bike, being frank in its evaluations of both the rugged and the tame. Accommodations get the same entertaining, honest treatment as the roads! But, did we mention the food? No worries, Salvadori does, and with the enthusiasm of a cafe gourmand. With an irreverent and enlightening commentary, the author ticks off resources and attractions, milepost by milepost, logging the quirky details that make traveling with him a delightful discovery. And no question about it, all your questions will be answered regarding necessary paperwork, legal considerations, insurance, personal health, useful phrases of Spanish (". . . Mi moto es muy rapido . . ."), road sign translations, and additional sources of information.
You've probably enjoyed Salvdori's taste for the open road (both paved and unpaved) in his many articles as a senior editor for both Rider and American Rider magazines. The next best thing to traveling with Clement Salvadori is following his tracks as they disappear over the southern horizon. This book will point the way.
