Review

"Ever had the urge to kinda slip across the border on those two wheels? Like down Mexico way? What's holding you back . . . all those lingering myths? What you need is a guide, someone who has traveled extensively in Mexico since 1972. Someone like Neal Davis. Now we're not sure whether he's available to literally hold your hand on a trip like this, so we think the next best thing is for you to get a copy of his book, Motorcycle Journeys Through Northern Mexico.

"This 224 pages of travel expertise covers everything from interesting routes to insurance to gasoline availability to . . . you get the picture. He even includes useful Spanish phrases, packing lists, and motorcycle events, to name just a few of the dozens of items covered." -- Thunder Press, Feb 2000

Format: Paperback
Neal Davis' book is indespensable for any motorcycle trip through northern Mexico. It would be the first thing to go into my saddlebag. Mr. Davis details routes and stops in cities and pueblos down to restaurant menus and hotel phone numbers and rates.

The book is full of detailed advice about border crossings, asking for directions, historical anecdotes and Mr. Davis' sociological observations on Mexican customs and habits including bartering and la famosa mordida.

The detailed description of point to point travel and what can be expected in terms of road conditions and destinations is where the book really shines.

I would have liked a little more on the performance of different motorcycles under off-road condtions; a little more of the nuts and bolts of dual sport riding.

If you plan to tour northern Mexico. I highy recommend you do not leave home without Neal Davis' book.
