1.0 out of 5 stars Not a road map
If you are buying this for detailed instructions on how to ride the world, this book is not for you. The Author writes in a story book style and spends the first chapter writing about fishing! It's mostly for American riders I guess, as the Author is American.

He says he has ridden the world four times, but there is no detailed account for any of them in this...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a road map, 20 Feb 2009
This review is from: Riding the World: The Biker's Road Map for a Seven Continent Adventure (Paperback)
If you are buying this for detailed instructions on how to ride the world, this book is not for you. The Author writes in a story book style and spends the first chapter writing about fishing! It's mostly for American riders I guess, as the Author is American.

He says he has ridden the world four times, but there is no detailed account for any of them in this book. Nothing about any of the encounters at border crossings or which shipping companies he used for getting the bike from one continent to another. Yes there is some information about the "carnet" required for some countries, but which ones?

Most of what he writes about is common sense really. There are some details about modifying the BMW GS and a KLR650. Also details about tools, riding kit, what spares to take, tent and cooking stuff. There is also some sensible stuff about choosing the bike and preparations.

But overall I wasn't impressed with the 160 pages in the book, there's much better ones (and websites) out there.

This review is from: Riding the World: The Biker's Road Map for a Seven Continent Adventure (Paperback)
i've read loads and loads of motorcycle travel books and this isn't too bad, it has lots of interesting opinions but it's certainly no "Adventure Motorcycle Handbook"
If, like me your looking to get a lot of knowlege from a wide variety of sources i would reccommend a read of this one.
