Synopsis

A long-time resident of California, Salvadori will guide you along some of the lesser-known motorcycling gems in his home state, as well as the memorable routes catalogued by list-baggers. Welcome bits of history, commentary, and notes from the author will give you plenty of good excuses to stop, as well as things to ponder as the miles roll by. Salvadori describes dozens of trips, most of which are loops clustered around the 13 convenient 'base camps' he suggests around the state, so you could leave your luggage and explore an area unencumbered for several days. Although the author recommends accommodations to help your planning, the numerous sidetrips, detours, connecting routes, and dual-sport diversions will encourage you to truly make your trip your own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clement knows CA motocycling 22. August 2001
Von JonRode - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've now taken 2 of the suggested rides and both have been first class. The mileage markers, road tips, and side excursions make for compact & useful information that you need to read carefully. The reward is fast learning in unfamiliar territory.

5.0 von 5 Sternen GREAT!! 26. April 2001
Von randall carter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In this book the author selects an area (san diego, so cal, central ca, san francisco, no cal, high desert, low desert, etc) then shows about 3 detail SCENIC loops (trips) from 50 miles to 200+ miles with great detail and gives options for side trips not listed.
It is up to date, printed in 4-2000. It makes me want to go on the trips listed!!!
Happy traveling, keep the rubber side up.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too big of a subject 25. Oktober 2001
Von D. Dimick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a well-written, well-researched book. However it fails in certain areas.
First, it tries to cover too big of an area. There are more than 35 great rides and roads just in northern California alone. As a result some prime rides are missed. This book is really geared more toward the touring rider than the sport rider.
Second, the only way to follow the well written riding directions is to copy them long hand because each ride description is too long to bring the book without stopping every 3 miles to check directions in some cases.
Third, is that many of the rides have pictures or descriptions that promise "on the weekend 100s of bike would be here" but it appears that most of the review rides were done during the week. This is a better time to ride but not a better time to see the bikes.
When it comes to finding the local spots to eat or visit this book is great. The accomodations are superbly researched and detailed. His inclusion of other riders and people he met while riding is a nice touch. His use of multiple bikes on the review rides was neat. The rides selected are all great rides. But they tend to be well known and can be heavily traveled too. I don't think that you'll find the undiscovered gem that many of us are searching for.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Stories and Many Great Tours 12. März 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Unlike a few critics / reviewers, I enjoy Clement Salvadori's musings. I have his 101 Tales, and now this, and so far thoroughly enjoy it. The first two tours he describes, the south Pacific coast and Angeles Crest (very cold in Feb, even with thermal underwear on), I rode in the 60's on a then new Honda SuperHawk (305), and enjoyed both. Some of the other routes I've also traveled by car, truck, or MC (especially east of Sacramento, Hwy 49) and his accounts brought back many happy memories. Maybe another reason is the fact that I calculate his age by his writings, to be colse to mine (71), so I always look for any techniques to adjust for the aging process as well (if no more than slowing down and more smelling of the roses).
