"Also listed in the book are motorcycle dealers, restaurants and a wealth of helpful and practical advice, like not hurtling right up to 10,000 feet, risking altitude sickness, but spending a couple of nights at 5,000 feet. Believe me, he is right! It is certainly a book that will accompany me when I return to Colorado." -- Motorcycle-Sport, January 1995

"In the 420 page softbound book, Berke has scouted the region's best campgrounds, parks, scenic landmarks, and restaurants, always with an eye on value. Each chapter, or trip, contains useful listings of restaurants, lodgings, places of interest, and other helpful tips. Over eighty maps accompany the text, making navigation a snap, and over 255 illustrations highlight many of the attractions.
"If you have a taste for the offbeat, and want to avoid traditional tourist traps, while experiencing the Southwest's finest motorcycling roads, then Motorcycle Journeys through the Southwest is for you." -- Keystone Motorcycle Press, September 1994
"Motorcycle Journeys Through the Southwest, You Don't Have to get Lost to Find the Good Roads. . . That subtitle is right, you don't have to get lost to find the good roads if you have this book. You don't even have to ride a motorcycle to enjoy it. It is written in a merry and informative style and contains all the information you will need with a bonus of comments on the cuisine; the history and the general ambiance of the area you want to travel through. There are clear maps of each area, and the book is small enough to carry in a large pocket." -- New Mexico Magazine, April 1995
