5.0 von 5 Sternen Run Out and Buy This Book! 9. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
JupiterÕs Travels stays with you long after you close the book. it is a classic travel narrative which belongs with the finest: ThesigerÕs Arabian Sands, NaipaulÕs An Area of Darkness, ChatwinÕs In Patagonia. Ted SimonÕs motto should be Carpe Diem. One day he decided to stop what he was doing to travel around the world on a Triumph motorcycle. The trip took him four years to complete. Ted shares with us his thoughts and feelings during the journey and his insights into many different cultures. What impresses me most, however, is TedÕs openness towards the people he meets and their different modes of life, and his honesty with himself and with us, his readers. Best of all, before our eyes, he grows and becomes a wiser person. He changes and so do we!

Ted Simon was a writer first and a motorcycle rider somewhere after that. Do not confuse this book with a mere description of places visited and how to keep a bike running. Jupiter's Travels includes some of the most insightful writing about carrying on through one's life; now hurtling, now crawling, but always with his senses fully operating and his mind delightfully able to capture and describe penetrating glimpses. Mr Simon reflects on the many ways of dealing with the variable textures of humanity, the testing of one's mettle while admitting to shortcomings, and in doing so this the book involves a greater metaphorical value, something that few so-called travel writers ever attain. Mr Simon's resourcefulness, his strategies, and his often intuitive approach to living on the road for four years will provide any reader, and particularly a prospective long-term traveler, with a book that will be remembered and perhaps even consulted in retrospect. When the boat is late and the sky is dark, when the customs people are being intransigent and the alleys seem full of bandits, when the dust becomes so thick that you can chew it -- you will find yourself wondering: how would Ted Simon deal with a time like this?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Light years ahead of his time! 1. Februar 1999
It still boggles the mind to think of the magnitude of what he accomplished, especially considering how far the technology of both bikes and accessories has come since Ted set out on his epic two-wheeled journey around the world. Nowadays you see folks riding big expensive dual-sport twins and triples from the likes of BMW and Triumph, sporting their exteme Kevlar/Gortex riding suits. But IMHO they dont seem to have the time or imagination to ride further than the nearest Mel's Drive-in. Seems to drive home the message that we, especially in the US have become so technology-obsessed that we are no longer capable of implementing a grand vision such as Ted did back in the 'stone-ages' of the '70s.

As an ex biker who never got further than the Lake district as far as Bike rides go this book took me to the world. It inspired me to adventure and look beyond Britain and its limitations. I took a year off and travelled (not on a bike) but this book was the start of my life. Ted Simon is hero in my eyes, I now live in the USA and was unable to find a copy until I found this in amazons search engine. Ted....if you read this there will always be a cold beer for you in Nevada.

5.0 von 5 Sternen man avoids responsibilities for four years 27. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
How many times do you have to rebuild a Triumph before it will make it around the world? Read this book and find out. Ted Simon has a good time for about the first six months then seems to find something crappy about allmost every civilization he encounters. His journey ends with a retreat from India in a mad rush to get home. Only to find out he learned nothing at all exept that bloated corpses float.

Ted immersed himself in the cultures he encountered. I felt like I was meeting the people as he met them. His insights and observations are candid and revealing. Through every trial and tribulation I was feeling his discomfort and his victories. A good read for anybody interested in world travel and a "must read" for anybody interested in motorcycle travel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein Klassiker 6. Oktober 2011
Ein absoluter Klassiker fuer jeden, der Reiselust hat. Neben den spannenden Erlebnissen auch sehr viel tiefgreifender Stoff ueber das Leben selbst. Tolle Lektuere, die nicht langweilig wird.
