Book Description

Nov. 1 2009

In 2001, martial arts–trained biker Glen Heggstad began a journey from California to the tip of South America on his motorcycle and made it as far as Colombia, where he was kidnapped by local rebels and held captive. Undeterred by more than a month of traumatic incarceration, the “Striking Viking” finished his trip after being released. Three years later he set out into the world on his bike again, this time searching for truth on his own terms in a world that had become strangled by a climate of fear. Starting his trip in Japan, he traveled through Siberia, Mongolia, Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, and Africa, stopping in more than 30 countries to deliver his message of the real United States, as he knew it. Unique stories and gritty adventure fill this quest for new sights and insights amongst extreme temperatures, knee-deep mud, bureaucratic roadblocks, health problems, and loneliness.

"If anyone knows determination, perseverance, agony and terror it is Glen Heggstad. And that motorcycles are fun! Straight to the point with moods and emotions that come right off the page, I’m surprised I haven’t seen a movie on this book already."  —Jimmy Lewis, editor, Cycle World Magazine

"A spectacular and gripping read. In it, Heggstad manages to illustrate the joys and hardships and benefits and drawbacks of two-wheeled global travel to some of the most difficult places on the planet."  —Friction Zone


“When you read his book, start it on a Friday evening, because you’ll spend all weekend traveling with him. You won’t be able to put it down"  —Cycle World Adventures


"This is a story of extreme travel at its finest. Everyone, especially riders, will appreciate the extremes this man went to in pursuit of his ultimate journey."  —Road Runner

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly honest March 8 2013
By rmack
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Instead of the usual boring descriptions of countries and cities visited, I found Glen offered a refreshingly honest evaluation of the places he went and the difficulties he had along the way.

An excellent read; you will not be disappointed, especially if you're a rider too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most improved writer! March 21 2010
By Kenneth N. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read Glen's earlier book several years back. I kind of had to force myself to continue reading through some parts to get to the good stuff.
What a difference with the new book. The author is humbler and more open than before. He takes chances just to see what's there. His writing is more fluid and less confrontational than the TWTT book.
This one is a keeper. I will read it again next winter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Anthropologist On A Bike Nov. 11 2009
By Daniel Plumer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am only half way through this book, but I can hardly put it down except to write this review, and I have never before written a review of anything. Glen's writing is so eloquent and descriptive that I feel like I am there with him. His courage and tenacity are beyond amazing, and his zeal for freedom and adventure provides me with authentic excitement and passion even if it is vicarious. He has become my temporary hero, and I look forward to savoring each and every page.

Glen is, in fact, an "anthropologist on a bike", a title for his book that I might have chosen. He is brilliant, and is able to dance with a broad spectrum of human nature, revealing it in the most positive and healthy of ways; ways that generate hope for our world. He is able to let go of the conditioned biases and prejudices that we are all programmed to adopt as we endure the constant fear based interpretations of the media.

If you would like to travel the world to places you will probably never get to experience directly, and if you would like to engage with people through a filter of appreciation, read Glen's book. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful in every way but one: a dearth of pictures! Nov. 17 2010
By Zaine Ridling - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful book except for two common criticisms. First is the dearth of pictures -- is Heggstad the only person to travel around the world and not snap more than a few pics -- we don't even get a decent or clear picture of the author! Therefore, go to the author's website listed in the book for hundreds of [uncategorized] digital photos of this book. My second criticism is the poor mapping included -- it's handy to have an atlas at hand -- Rand McNally's Notebook World Atlas is perfect -- to follow each subchapter as Heggstad's maps are small and vague, nor do they list all the points of his travels! Still, this is a worthy book because the author does it alone. Compare this account to Ewan MacGregor and Charley Boorman's horribly ill-prepared Long Way Round: Chasing Shadows Across the World. MacGregor and Boorman spent every day crying for their wives and children wanting to go home, and they spent the rest of their time ditching and wrecking their bikes. Heggstad broke up with his gal when she called him three weeks in and issued an ultimatum to come home or else. Heggstad notes that it's far easier to travel alone on a bike than in teams of two or more; people greet and welcome an individual more openly.

Heggstad himself must be semi-insane. Like every world cyclist, he insists on going through Siberia. China is essentially closed to wanderers and he explains how before you would be allowed to ride a bike around China, the government would want to know where you're going, whom you're seeing, what you're writing about them, and more importantly, you're not allowed private, foreign vehicles there for fear you'll sell them. Therefore China gets excluded from everyone's "adventure" itinerary. But Heggstad also failed to spend much time driving around Europe. He zipped into Munich, popped over to Czech and Hungary, and then almost straight to Istanbul. You can read between the lines when he gets to Thailand, the tone of the book changes and he gets giddy. Apparently the sex can't be beat as he's getting blown and happy endings every time he steps off his bike, perhaps even while on the bike! He definitely did not want to leave Thailand, and can't wait to get back. He even debates whether to pay a hefty fine to remain over his expired visa!

His dime store wisdom could use more historical study, but he's right that god-belief and gold/control of resources is the root of all evil. Still, his belief that "People get along, governments do not" is clearly illustrated throughout the pages. Over and over, you see that muslims are the source of violence throughout developing regions. When dealing with shy people or government bureaucrats and border patrols, his Will Rogers' "Aw shucks, how is everybody!" gets him out of the toughest jams over and over. I recommend this book to anyone, and I can't wait to buy another Heggstad title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-stopper Jan. 18 2010
By redninja - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book you won't want to put down! Great adventures, written by a great storyteller. It is unfortunate the publisher was not able to include more of the outstanding photographs. Fortunately, the book contains an internet link to more photos, which are really fun to view after reading the book. It lets you compare the pictures you have formed in your mind after reading Glen's vivid descriptions with the actual scenes themselves.
