Product Description

Review

"In my million miles riding BMW motorcycles, I have ridden to all of the areas described and illustrated in the 17 chapters in this book. I have ridden some of the routes suggested by Mr. Coyner and sometimes have ridden similar routes nearby. The author captures the nature and the flavor of each of the regions well, and will whet the reader's appetite to pick a direction and go. The book ought not just be used as a literal route planner, for to do so would shortchange a rider when visting any locale. The book is most valuable as a trip planner. It makes great off-season reading so a motorcyclist can plan an area to visit on his or her next great adventure." - BMW Owners News magazine


Simply the creation of this book is impressive!  Dale Coyner decided to take a look-see at nearly all of the United States, and a goodly part of Canada, and figure out where the best rides are.  That is a lot of real estate to cover, and probably some five million miles of possible roads.  The book is not really a guide, more like a book of previews -- like movie previews, to give you a taste of what a longer view might be like . . . .armchair reading -- and viewing, with some 350 pictures, many of which are enough to get a rider to put his (or her) toothbrush in the tankbag and take off to any number of possible destinations. . . . How do you decide where to go on that three-day, three-week, three-month vacation?  Some of us do the tried and true, go to places we're familiar with, but there is always that desire to expand our horizons, see new vistas, find new roads, eat new food. . . .Dale is an experienced traveler and has several other books about motorcycle touring to his credit, includingThe Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel.  He has personally covered over two-thirds of the tens of thousands of miles that his MJT North America routes follow, and for the rest he relied on information from friends and acquaintances, read books and articles, and contacted local tour operators -- who really know their stuff. . . . This is a big continent we live on, and Dale makes traveling less intimadating. - RiderMagazine.com


"Perhaps the best thing Dale Coyner accomplishes with Motorcycle Journeys Through North America is pushing you to think big.  Sure, that annual 1-week trip is wonderful, but hey, look at what you could do in 3 weeks!  You know you want to.  Just let that bug bite you and you'll figure out a way, won't you?" - Motorcycles Examiner.com


"From the coasts of Newfoundland to the South Western deserts, each section is color coded so it's easy to find what you're looking for.  A historical and cultural overview of the region begins each chapter and is followed by a day-by-day sample schedule for each one- to three- week ride.  That's where this travel guide really shines;  each route is divided into daily chunks and illustrated with full-color photos and detailed maps, which leaves you with few gaps to fill and even fewer excuses for not going." - RoadRunner Magazine

A great collection of tour suggestions, well presented.
If you have any other ones of those guides, there is a fair bit of repetition from the other ones.
But if you had only one to buy, it would be this one.
