Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Chris Scott's first motorcycle adventure got him halfway from London to Wales where he broke down. Since then he's visited the Sahara and West Africa several times on two wheels, describing these eventful trips in "Desert Travels." He also travels regularly in north and western Australia and has visited southern Africa and the US, but most frequently returns with bikes or cars to the Sahara where he occasionally runs tours. His other books include "Sahara Overland "(also by Trailblazer) and the "Rough Guide to Australia."

A must have 28. November 2001
Von Johan Rodskog - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you are even thinking about taking an extended trip by motorcycle, you MUST have this book. It will become your Bible. Great tips, details on bikes, equipment, trip planning, paperwork, do's and dont's, etc. + good travel stories.
This book is geared toward offroad travel and travel trough continents. If you are riding from LA to Chicago than forget about this book. If you are planning/dreaming of a trip to South America, Asia or other foreign place then buy it right now.
If you were not planning a trip before, you will after reading this.

Pretty good guidebook but ... 28. November 2004
Von Estanislao "El Patiperro" E - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The author has wisely involved a number of other very experienced adventure travel riders in what has come to be regarded as perhaps the best of the very few books on the subject of international/adventure riding. There are some faults, though, to which many similar travel guides are heir. One is that circumstances change, and that what may have been correct or useful 3 or 4 years ago when the research or experience was current, are no longer valid. To address this, there is mention of websites which tend to stay more current than the once-written-now-obsolete paper books. In general there is a good technical comparison of the relative values and utility of certain features and brand models, but there is also a detactable bias against some models which ironically are among the most commonly and successfully employed in international adventure riding. If your interests lie in the territory covered by this book, then by all means obtain a copy, bearing in mind that a great deal of independent research and thought is also in order. Think of this guide, and many others like it, as simply a point of departure for further study. If I had relied upon it as my principal data source before departing the US for Argentina on a motorcycle, I would have been woefully underprepared and misinformed.

Great starter book 20. Juli 2007
Von B.H. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have to say, I read this book cover to cover. I was surprised how up to date it was. I've been motorcycling for a few years for general transportation and fun. I started getting interested in adventure motorcycling this past year. I like to get off the normal tourist routes when I travel and adventure motorcycling looked like a great way to to see some parts of the world.

The book does a good job of covering all the major topics - picking a bike (it reviews 10-15 of them), what to wear, items to bring, how to pack, gear, typical mechanical issues to expect, safety, border crossings, etc. It also covers popular routes in different regions of the world. These sections are okay, but they really didn't have enough depth for me to decide where I might want to go. It only acts as a stating point. Then again, I'm sure there's TONs of routes to take per country, so I can't imagine it would be easy to add more detail to any level of comprehensivness. If the author reads this - a set of top 10 routes might be nice, especially if it included a rating system for different attributes. The second half of the book is made up of 2-5 pages short stories or diaries from riders. These stories were the best part of the whole book. I wish there were more because they're very interesting and you learn from those as well. They really leave you wanting to go out and hit the road.

Excellent and well editted. 26. Dezember 2009
Von Eric P. Chipko - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Very good book on the subject and immensely enjoyable but I am only 1/3 thru it.

Best point is the terse language. Say what needs to be said on a particular subject and move on. Don't dwell or indulge yourself. Any english teacher would be very proud.

Worst point is the small form factor of the book which detracts from some of the black and white photography making the pictures hard to see for my 40 year old eyes. This format is meant to be taken with you on the adventure. But the author publisher could indulge himself in a large format book that is used only for the the planning stagess at home when space is not a problem. I think the english teachers would allow a bit more. Both would still be recommended. There is no deception. The listing correctly lists the format.

Need it or no? 27. Juni 2001
Von Sam Humphrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book has a lot of good pointers, especially if you have never travelled on a motorcycle before. I have done quite a bit of traveling and was looking for help in foreign motorcycle travel. I live in the USA and will be travelling south of the border so this book didn't offer much help. It would be helpful if you were in Europe and planning to travel around Europe or into Africa by motorcycle. For New Worlders, however, this book is quite lacking. There are better books out there for travelling in Central and South America.
