Disappointing. May 20 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wilson wrote books on classic British motorcycles but doesn't know how to repair his own. This is a story about him riding a bit, breaking down, calling a contact to rescue him, watching that contact fix his bike (this sequence is repeated many times), and generally mooching his way around part of Africa. To say he unreasonably took advantage of many people is an understatement. One of the most boring and cringe-worthy motorcycle adventure books I've read. Relieved I didn't pay full price.
