5.0 out of 5 stars It's an honour to read a book like this...........
.........and share in the solid homespun (expertly assembled?) prose of Daniel Meyer. If you want to get even a glimpse of the symbiosis that exists between man and motorbicycle (if a Honda Valkyrie can be classed as a mere motorbicycle) this book is a must read.
It can be dipped into or devoured at a single go (albeit you'll keep coming back to savour the way the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Stories from a six foot, three hundred pound Texan.
This is not a novel, an adventure book or a how to book. It's some short stories of the author's experiences and general thoughts of an American riding through the Interstates and Highways of the US. Within the stories, the detail can be a little repetitive and the format of each story tends to be the same. There is a lot of detail about breakfasts, diet coke and fried...

3.0 out of 5 stars Stories from a six foot, three hundred pound Texan., 14 Jun 2010

This review is from: Life is a Road, the Soul is a Motorcycle (Paperback)
This is not a novel, an adventure book or a how to book. It's some short stories of the author's experiences and general thoughts of an American riding through the Interstates and Highways of the US. Within the stories, the detail can be a little repetitive and the format of each story tends to be the same. There is a lot of detail about breakfasts, diet coke and fried chicken, and I lost count of how many times he referred to himself as a three hundred pound American biker dude, which he seems very proud of. Having said that, he does capture the essence of riding a bike, certainly knows his bikes and has a passion for riding bikes, which is evident throughout the book. I think the price of the book is a little steep in terms of value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars where to eat on a road trip !, 10 Nov 2011

This review is from: Life is a Road, the Soul is a Motorcycle (Paperback)
if this book where an english version it would read something like this....rode up the M6 for about sixty miles pulled of at preston and whent to the jolly fryer for fish,chips,mushy peas,and a diet coke, but being a three hundred pound TEXAN i had a ton of chips,a whale and a bucket of mushy peas.This is the most boring book i have ever read,It reads like a sixteen year old on his first moped,i was doing eighty or i was doing seventy and then i pulled a wheely,the cop said i was the best rider he had ever seen.The chapter where he was riding on a deserted road a night when he saw a naked woman standing at the side of the road,stoped picked her up took her to a dinner for somthing to eat,then took her back to some kind of mansion where she lived,then when she asked if he would like to come in ,he remembered he was married and rode away,what is this guy on? As a serious motorcycle travel book it aint! as a collection of stories, of rides around the county ,and a few fantasys about sums it up.To give it more than ONE star would be a travesty to such writers as TED SIMON,OR JONNY BEALBY,TIM WATSON,or even EWEAN McGREGOR,and CHARLEY BOORMAN

This review is from: Life is a Road, the Soul is a Motorcycle (Paperback)
.........and share in the solid homespun (expertly assembled?) prose of Daniel Meyer. If you want to get even a glimpse of the symbiosis that exists between man and motorbicycle (if a Honda Valkyrie can be classed as a mere motorbicycle) this book is a must read.
It can be dipped into or devoured at a single go (albeit you'll keep coming back to savour the way the author can get you wishing to break free from your cage and just ride for the pleasure of it).
As Chris Rea threw out on one of his songs..."Texas! They got ROADS out there......"
Read some Daniel Meyer and share some road, some observations of what makes a man even of a young 'un, some REAL LIFE.

Now GO, BUY AND READ
And tell those that might ask, who sent you.
