Format: Paperback
This book is basically a diary of Boonstra's long adventure tours. Some of the conditions he rides in are extremely harsh, and made me think that he was crazy for continuing. I read this book cover to cover, but you don't need to. Each of his trips is a separate chapter. I would definitely recommend reading the first two Alaska trips; it is during these trips that he is learning about adventure touring and he has the most interesting experiences (from a riding standpoint). On his second trip, he gets cought in a blizzard and also does quite a bit of riding in the snow! It was worth the read and really opened my eyes to what you can do on a motorcycle.

HASH(0x9f019570) out of 5 stars best motorcycling book i read Sept. 16 2008
By Hsugres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this guy is amazing - seven trips to Alaska on dirt roads after retiring from enduro racing

from 1100 cc goldwing to last trip on 225 CC serow

p. 247" it is amazing how much that little machine can take , not to mention my 72-years-old body. I bounced along the ground and heard my helmet hit the dirt road three times before I finally came to rest. As Jake was picking me up, he said I was lucky I landed on my head; otherwise, I might have really gotten hurt!"

p.272 " I hate airplanes. Besides, they can be dangerous"

HASH(0x9f01984c) out of 5 stars It's an inspiration for me Oct. 23 2012
By Sukie - Published on Amazon.com

I started riding a motorcycle at 56 yrs old and am now pushing 63. At times, I have thought maybe I need to think about giving up the sport even though I have no physical limitations yet. I read this book and thought, if he can keep going on riding adventures into his 80's, so can I.

HASH(0x9f019744) out of 5 stars Best Book Ever! March 3 2005
By SwampBeast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is the best I have evr read. It has inspired me to attempt a cross-country motorcycle trip. (eventually) Peit Boonstra was a very good friend of my grandfather, and he is as nice in person as he is in this book.

Whatever kind of riding you do or plan to do, this book is a must read. Piet is not shy about revealing his mistakes and miscalculations. Reading this can save you a lot of trouble if you want to go North. A great book.
