Format: Paperback
2 Years on the Run is a great story. Maddy takes you on his motorcycling adventures with his new wife across a good portion of the United States, as well as a trip to Branson and the famed Sturgis, albeit in the off-season. He even takes you with him on a trip to Alaska and Hawaii (though not on a 'motor'bike) where he discovers just how similar the scenery truly is between the two states. Humorously told from the author's point of view, you'll laugh at him because of both his sharp wit and cluelessness. Most of all, his style of writing not only tells a great and fun story, but he gets you right there on the road with him. It's like you are in the saddle bags, in a sidecar, or even just riding behind him.
I've been to many of the places he describes, and have even lived in a few myself, but you need not have lived or visited any of these places as he describes them well enough, giving tidbits of interesting history along the way, such as the real name of Ratos NM, or why the Sunbeam dam in Salmon Idaho was breached.
I've had a maybe a whole 10 minutes of driving time on a motorcycle, from a 50cc as a kid to a failed rebuild attempt at a Suzuki 400 to riding my friend's softtail and hoping not spill it, and he really makes me want to hop on and ride.
Definitely a page-turner. You won't want to put it down, and you'll want to go buy a big fat Harley or roadbike when you're done!

I chose this book because I am a new motorcycle enthusiasts and wanted to read about other's experiences. It was interesting to me because a lot of the rides this couple has done are the same ones that my husband and I have done. I was surprised at how unprepared they were, but that things turned out OK for them ~ even having to buy a new bike along the way. We are totally the opposite type of rider who always have our bike checked out before our long ride and pack according to what will fit on the bike. They also traveled huge distances daily which we try to avoid. We are much more of the 200 miles a day is considered a VERY long ride. Just shows how what's right for one couple may not be right for another.

This was a fun book to read, as I also had traveled to some of the locations also on my motorcycle. Entertaining and enjoyable!

This is well written and fun book in spite of the author's starting point of dealing with the loss of his wife. The trip descriptions are well done with just enough background of the places they visit to make it interesting and personal without bogging down.
In spite of it's well done travel tales it is really a book that belongs in the "How Not To" book list. As a biker of more than forty years I cringed all the way through the book at the basic mistakes they made but got away with. This is the first bike trip book where someone had to buy a new bike halfway through a two week trip.
It was fun to read about roads and places I remember though mostly on four wheels for me.
It is not a long book but at the price is a very good read.

Not really about motorcycling. His self-deprecating humor about his eating too much got old. I wish him well in the future but don't think long motorcyle touring is in it.

I enjoy motorcycle touring stories and this one was perhaps average. It was a bit shocking the chances the author and his wife took as novice motorcyclists.
