Top customer reviews
I'm far from a motorcycle nomad, but I was riding 600+ miles a week for a while (will return, after a few repairs) and can only say that this insight is invaluable. I wish I had started with this knowledge, dumb luck and heavy research more or less pointed me towards this direction but there were some minor mistakes gear wise (like bags catching on fire) and a lot of stress that could have been easily avoided.
Honesty this is a book that should be endorsed by the motorcycle safety foundation. The key aspect of this book is that the author actually has as a goal to prepare you to ride as a means of getting around as well as an end in itself. There is nothing wrong with going out on the weekends on your bike, but there is a big difference between relying on your bike for your day to day and merely venting out on it. And the former has steeper needs which are rarely addressed.
Will Rogers & NVR2FAR.
Lovin goes over all the essentials, from camping, to eating, to basic maintenance, to survival skills in the wild as well as in populated areas.
His advice comes from hundreds of thousands of miles' worth of experience riding through the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Central America, from a rider who has roughed it on a bike more than most of us will. It is great reading before a big ride, or as a refresher now and then.
This book is difficult to find, so nab one up; because of its rarity, it is one of the few books in my library I do not loan out to others.
