Synopses & Reviews
In typical Haynes style and with an emphasis on pictorially-led chapters, the structure of the book leads the reader in a logical progression using first-hand experience from the planning stage through to execution. The subject matter has many unknowns for first-timers and the book will address the majority of these questions, providing enough information and comfort for the reader to confidently consider, plan and complete a trip. The book should inspire, enthuse, invigorate and at the very least, tempt the reader into considering the possibility of an adventure, albeit for some this will take place from the comfort of an armchair, with the book firmly in hand.
Outdoor enthusiasts thinking of trying adventure motorcycling will be inspired, invigorated and informed by this expert manual which covers every aspect of the trip, including practicalities (cost, personal fitness, how long you can be away from home), choosing the right bike, equipment, clothing, legal documentation, riding techniques, maintenance, navigation and emergencies. Whether stranded on a mountainside or dreaming in the armchair, both experienced and would-be adventurers will find this book essential reading.
