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.
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 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.Published 14 months ago by Bankguy
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.Published 14 months ago by R. D. Nelson
