More About the Author

Robert Wicks is the author of four adventure motorcycling titles from Haynes. He has always had a passion for adventure travel and motorcycles and has worked in the media and sports marketing industries for much of his career, including several years with the Superbike World Championship and MotoGP. An avid outdoor enthusiast and keen photographer, Robert's travels have taken him to more than 50 countries and it has been a long-time personal ambition to see this particular book published.

The latest book in the series is entitled: The World's Great Adventure Routes. "Picking a route is one of the most exciting prospects for any adventure motorcyclist and in this book the world's greatest routes have been compiled into a unique single collection for the first time," says Robert.

The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes presents more than 30 of the greatest routes across the globe, all brought to life by the best collection of adventure motorcycling photography and maps ever assembled in one volume.

Using real-world advice and planning from some of the world's leading adventure riders, this latest book in the acclaimed Haynes adventure motorcycling series offers readers comprehensive insight into the most spectacular, inspiring and challenging adventure routes across the globe. For the really adventurous there are epic trans-continental routes covering thousands of miles but there are also some short, must-see trails for those not wanting to venture too far afield.

Each route is accompanied by outstanding photography and a detailed map, with additional fact boxes on local sights, tips for riding and anecdotes from personal experiences. In every case the text has been compiled by someone who has 'been there and done it', and the contributors include some of the best-known names in adventure motorcycling, people such as Kevin and Julia Sanders, Sam Manicom, Walter Colebatch, Joe Pichler and Andreas Hülsmann.

With more than 300 colour photographs and maps, The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes is designed to inform, excite and inspire.

I really wanted to like this book and even pre-ordered it but..... I have given it two stars. Two because I have huge respect for Simon Pavey and having attended his excellent offroad BMW training school (but take some body armour with you)and am now a regular green laner. The book starts weakly - what bike to choose? Well to keep the shelf life of the book the author appears to choose nothing except states the "different strokes for different folks" philosophy which isn't much help. Doesn't even try to weigh up the few main stream bikes available in this area. Try Adventure motorcycling handbook or TBM magazine. What luggage er - depends what you want but no real weighing of the pro's and con's of hard over soft etc. In fact two articles of about 900 words in the Jan and Feb edition of TBM covered more detail than the whole of this book on bike and luggage selection.

That could all be forgiven if the rest of the book was solid after all it is about riding techniques - but it isn't. Some good info initially and how to pick a bike up etc but - putting wieght on the handle bars if you ride ruts! That's not what they teach at the off road school if you do that the front tyre edge grips the rut edge twists the front tyre and spits you off. You lighten the front and steer through the foot pegs. Basically any book that trys to teach a physical sport is going to struggle but I think some aspects are basically misleading or not properly described. I got so frustrated with the thing that I gave it to my son (age 12- keen dirt biker) to look at the pictures which are ace. My recomendation is save your money and put it towards some off road training you won't learn riding skills through a book and if you want a good book on the subject of adventure riding then go for the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook by Chris Scott

This book has great photography; the images alone really motivate you to get out there and start riding your bike. The quality of the photography means that this would make a reasonable coffee table book (everyone picks it up and starts looking at the images).

That said it does have a lot of useful & practical information. For someone new to motorcycling, or new to dirtbike riding this would be very helpful. Obviously nothing beats having actual training, but this is the next best thing I reckon.

I never had any dirtbike training, but taught myself over the years. This book confirmed a number of things I already knew (which was a relief to know I was doing it right), and helped me correct a few other aspects of my riding.

All in all a good buy.

I bought this for my son having completed a journey with him this year to Barcelona on our bikes and he loves it. In fact I love it too of course! It has inspired us to go futher.....but then agian so did Ted Simon when I met him in 1978 and bought Jupiters Travels! At least now when we do we might knwo how to ride better!

I wanted to read up before going on an off road course in Wales. It provided some very useful and practical advice. I'd recommend it for anyone interested in adventure riding.
