Pressestimmen

"Finally, an entertaining book written by an experienced and well-traveled woman motorcyclist. Motorcyclists, non-motorcyclists, women, and men will find Carla's story both heartwarming and revealing as she tiptoes the lines between feminine woman and hardcore biker, flirty and reserved, and carefree and responsible, knowing right when to use each persona to her advantage."  —Genevieve Schmitt, founder, WomenRidersNow.com

Great research material for those interested in the Ural motorcycle 24. Mai 2007
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I began researching the Ural sidecar rig in 2000. At that time, the bike was still relatively unreliable and more suited to those with a penchant for tinkering. Ms. King's book really highlights the flaws in those early bikes, and provides an entertaining and down-to-earth look at how the manufacturer of a new and/or inferior product must go through the painful process of constant refinement and change in order to survive in a very competitive market.

Take Me With You Next Time! 19. Juni 2007
Von June Ahern - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
From the moment Carla's motorcycle started up the road to adventure, I was with her - in the sidecar - the whole way. You discover, laugh, get pissed off, and at times, unsure what's next as King curves and glides across America. Great adventurous read. All the people you meet. I felt as though I was meeting them too. Love the Canadian border/US border group. When the bike breaks down, and it does - the uncertainity of - are we done now? Hope not. And, then on the road again. Makes you want to take off and discover the jewels awaiting you in a unique travel mode, especially for a woman. Where to next, Carla?

Adventures Abound 18. Februar 2008
Von Alexis Parks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Carla King and I have never met. However, we became friends when she read my book, then sent me her own. I'm a scooter person, I've never riden a motorcycle. Yet it didn't take much imagination to ride along right behind her, because every bend in the road brought a new adventure. Carla's voice is authentic, engaging, and best of all ... enduring.

I've known men who have taken off on a motorcycle trip to South America, but this is a different kind of journey. I think that it takes a lot of courage for an attractive, single woman to set off on the road alone. Whether by bike or motorcycle, it takes more than an adventurous spirit to manage the moments when you pull up alongside a motorcycle gang, or the small town loner. It takes the ability to rapidly sort options and defuse potentially dangerous situations with a tool set of inner skills.

Carla has this ability in spades. And she's also got first-rate mechanical skills. Whether her trip was prompted by heartbreak, or her heart's longing for the open road, she got what she was looking for and so much more! I read the book with delight, like enjoying a box of chocolates all by yourself; and I highly recommend it.

Decent But Not The Best Motorcycle Travel Book 26. Juli 2008
Von sseale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book book was an ok motorcycle travel book. Eventhough it was published in 2007, it is about a trip King takes in 1996. The writing was decent, but I never really got sucked into the story. It was interesting to hear about her troubles riding the Ural. I don't know anything about Urals, but I wondered if they are better machines today than when she rode hers.

It was a decent read but there are better motorcycle travel books out there.

Interesting Ride 2. August 2010
Von Stormygail - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First two thirds of the book moves and is interesting. Last third I felt that she was loosing interest. Book is worth buying and is a good light read.
