Product Description

World motorcycle traveler Clement Salvadori returns with another great road book. This time, he brings enthusiasts 30 stories covering 50 years of travel by motorcycle to odd spots around the planet. Readers can follow him through war-torn Vietnam to the sybaritic pleasures of camping out in a South African wilderness area, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, from 1957 to 2010.

While the motorcycle is always at the heart of these stories, far more important are Salvadori's impressions of the countries he rides through and the people he meets along the way. He artfully injects history, sociology, politics, and economics into the mix, and comes up with fresh and vivid descriptions of the many places he has been. On these journeys, he was frequently told, "The road doesn't go that way, you can't get there from here." But, for Salvadori, bad roads, bridgeless rivers, and seemingly insurmountable mountains were always part of the fun—if one may call it that. A big part of the adventure was to find a way, even when there was supposedly none.

You don't have to be a motorcyclist to enjoy this book, but if you are, you'll be inspired to travel more yourself to not only see the world firsthand but also to face your own set of challenges just as successfully as this great traveller and storyteller has.

Clement Salvadori bought his first motorcycle as a teenager and has been riding ever since—in more than 70 countries on six continents. A well-known name in motorcycle journalism, he has written over 1,000 articles for several dozen motorcycle magazines, and is the author of a number of popular travel books on the sport, including the bestselling 101 Road Tales, a collection of amusing and engaging stories from his popular monthly column in Rider magazine. He lives in southern California with his wife, Sue.
