" As roads become more crowded and the speed capabilities of everyday motorcycles approach those of the fastest racing machines, the desire to enjoy the simple pleasures of gathering a group of friends for an off-road adventure gets more appealing all the time. You may know of trails in your area and be aware of events you might enter, but the unknowns could be holding you back. Carl Adams has done us all a great favor by creating an encyclopedic look at dual-sporting; "Everything you need to buy, ride and enjoy the world's most versatile motorcycles" to paraphrase the book's cover. Malcolm Smith wrote the foreword, and you can't ask for a higher recommendation than that. This book contains so many nuggets of wisdom, you'll be at least a year ahead of the game by the last page." - Motorcycle Consumer News
"Today's dual sport rider faces many bewildering choices for machines and gear. Navigating those waters is tough and trusted advice can help riders make the most of their time and money. (Adams) thrifty no-nonsense perspective is refreshing and sound. . . .I give it four out of four cylinders." - Editor Victor Wanchena, Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly
