Product description


" 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

"Berke is a full-time motorcycle explorer and author, with an obvious sense of both curiosity and humor that makes this book as fun to read as it is useful." -- Motorcycle Consumer News

"For those who like to scout ahead, Martin C. Berke's Motorcycle Journey's Through the Southwest is a good source of information about roads to ride, places to eat and things to see." -- Motorcycle Cruiser, Summer 1996

"I wish I'd been sent this book a few months earlier, before I did my own little bit of exploring in the southwest, for it is chock full of information for the tourist. Yes, I know that it is fun to find out for yourself but I am never adverse to accepting a helping hand, especially if time is limited. Covering Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado, it offers 66 "rides" in what must be one of the most beautiful parts of a beautiful country, routes that have been traversed by the author, Marty Berke, on his BMW. Scanning the pages awakened many memories for me and reminded me that, so far, I really haven't scratched the surface. A few of the suggested routes I have already followed and plenty more I wish I had.

"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

"If you're going to the Durango rally, or just want to go riding in the west, this book is a must . . . ." -- BMW Owners News

"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

About the Author

Marty Berke wrote both Motorcycle Journeys through New England and Motorcycle Journeys through the Southwest out of a lifelong love of the open road. Currently on the back roads full-time, he originally caught the two-wheeled fever with his first schwinn, and graduated to the motorized version not long after with a 1955 Vespa, a driver's license, and an IOU to Mom.

After graduating from C.W. Post College with a degree in economics, Marty spent the next eighteen years pursuing his hobby--while opening up new markets for a large corporation throughout Europe, the Americas, the South Pacific, and Asia.

Author of travel and motorcycle articles, he now prowls the world finding good roads and new ways to share them with you.
