Book Description

Che Guevara and Alberto Granado’s journey through South America in 1952 on a Norton 500 motorcycle is one of the most famous motorcycle journeys of all time. Guevara’s experiences on that journey led him to become a key figure of the Cuban Revolution and one of the greatest inspirational icons of the twentieth century. Steve Holmes and Pete Sandford’s journey through South America in 2009 is arguably the least known motorcycle journey of all time, but it took them on the same route, through Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela. Along the way, the pair did battle with some of the most dangerous environments on the planet including the Atacama Desert (the driest place on Earth) and the mighty Amazon River. To make it just a bit tougher they made the trip on authentic period Nortons just like Che’s. Che’s motorcycle never completed the 5000 mile journey. Would Holmes and Sandford’s 60-year-old bikes survive this epic trip? To infinity and beyond relates the dangerous and exciting adventure as they follow Che’s route faithfully.

I really enjoyed the book. I have wished many times that I could do such an adventure. If you like motorcycles and food this is a book that you will probably enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Removed it from my KF June 22, 2012
By Nancy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the author to be so completely self-centered that he could have just stayed home and wrote about the bike. Traveling through gorgeous and foreign places he talks about how many times he had to start his motorcycle every day...after day....after day. Beautiful historic beach? 'Yeah, we looked at it but didn't stay. I had three sandwiches and started my bike only two times.' Not exact quotes as like I said I removed it from my Kindle. Maybe someone who raved about this book (and not a friend or relative of the two guys) can quote it exactly. I don't have patience, and I shouldn't have to have any, to waste my time and money on any self-indulgent writing, and this one is in that category. Don't have an opinion of the movie as I didn't see it-really hope it was re-written for the screen to make it interesting.
