This book is a good reference book for those just getting interested or just starting out in motorcycling. Most information contained in the book can be obtained through reading and forums on the web.
Unless you know nothing of the motorcycleing world this would be good to read. Otherwise give it a miss.

I was hoping for some true insight into how and why you would want to cruise long distance on a motorcycle. Instead all it was a regurgitated collection of basic hints and tips about motorcycling in general that is available in even your basic owners manual. With topics such as "How to buy the right bike, and why it's important to check the oil." it was very apparent to me that Mr. Stermer was more interested in royalty checks, then shedding any light on this aspect of riding.
Can you tell I didn't like it, and want to send it back.

I bought this book before taking a 2,600 mile two week tour of seven western states on my SV650. I have owned 8 motorcycles, the first in 1973, so I thought I knew a lot. It was a very good book with lots of advice that saved me the purchase price many times over. It is a small investment that pays excellent dividends if you are planning a trip, unless you have a great deal of touring experience. I also reccomend it if you are considering a bike but don't know what you want.

Save your money. This is a book for non bike owners, who want a cursory glance at the topic. The author spends too much of the book on non related areas. Engine types, selecting a bike, maintenence, and not enough real meat about the title topic. There are real issues related to traveling by two wheels in safety and comfort, with all the stuff you really need, over a long distance. These subjects are only superficially explored. And anyone who has ridden some of the machines he suggests would make good touring platforms, would know that they would be extreamly uncomfortable over any prolonged ride. Perhaps the authors idea of a tour is a one day hop to someplace, if so, most of his selctions might be adequate, but that really isn't the context of "touring". Another reviewer put it well when he said this book woulod make a better series of magazine articles which tend to be superficial in nature anyway. There are some good points made in the book. Unfortunately for the money they only comprise 20% of the material.
