Wait, what? He is who he is, but I've never been to Latin America without meeting a lot of interesting people, being fascinated with the scenery and wanting to know more about the stories of the places I experienced. He's just not that kind of guy, but I wish he'd thrown a little more of that in for his readers. (Maybe South America will be different.)
Just my opinion, but I thought the consistent use of present tense was awkward. I'd like to hear what others thought.
This was an amazing ride and I am glad he was able to do it.
The book takes you on a fast paced trip, like you are riding along with Bill, from the chaotic traffic of Mexico City to the solitude of the high altitude roads that snake through the Andes mountains.
Thrilling encounters with armed police, biting dogs, broken gear, and broken bones- Bill lived it all and came back to tell us.
He gives you the sense that if you just open your eyes and heart, be flexible and go with flow, and have courage, that you will live more fully and experience the world as it is meant to be experienced.
I highly recommend this book.
I enjoyed the story, but the author really needs an editor, as the poor grammar made the reading experience somewhat grating.
I really enjoyed the book. I felt I was there with him through all of his adventures. I wanted him to fix his bike when it broke and wanted him to make it safe to his destination (to nail the chick as well :-)). Finally, I was the book was longer. I guess that tells you that I enjoyed it.
Not one for generally reading autobiographies, this book did perk my interest because of my love for motorcycles and I am glad it did. Bill shares his love for motorcycles and adventure with us. He tells stories of love, helpfulness and compassion from the people he meets along the way. Though not all people were so. From being harassed by corrupt police to having his ass thrown in jail it all works out. Crashes, dashes and running from law, only make him realize that, do the right thing and the rest will all fall in place, listen to your body, heart and soul. It is not the destination, but the journey on the way.
