Have you ever dreamed about getting on your motorcycle and traveling across the country? Are you envious when you see motorcyclists with far away out-of-state plates and wish that could be you? Are you tired of fantasizing about taking that dream motorcycle trip and want to turn that dream into a reality? Since I began sharing my motorcycle travel photos and videos on social media, I've received countless emails and questions from people interested in motorcycle touring but with no idea where to begin. That's why I decided to write Motorcyclist's Guide to Travel. I want to be able to share this information with as many motorcyclists as possible. This book isn't about motorcycle travel theory or philosophy. I share with you the exact same methods and steps I use to plan and execute my own motorcycle trips all throughout the US. I cover how to plan and prepare for the trip, what to do during the trip as well as what to do after you return home. I go over different types of bikes and modifications you can make to them to make them more "touring worthy." I also cover all the different types of riding safety gear and what to look for when purchasing. And finally for those of you who don't know where you want to ride; that's ok. I also show you how come up with your own travel ideas. Motorcyclist's Guide to Travel will give you all the information you'll need to finally take that epic trip you've been dreaming about.

Young and beautiful, Lois Pryce was a rising star at the BBC. Unbeknownst to her co-workers, Lois lived a parallel life as a biker babe with an overwhelming sense of wanderlust. So she packed in her career to ride her motorcycle on her own from the northernmost tip of Alaska to the southernmost tip of South America. Alone. Armed only with the Spanish words for 'caution' and 'cheese', Lois was rather under-prepared for multiple bear sightings, bribing her way through borders, spending a night in a Mexican brothel and crashing her bike in the wilds of Patagonia. She most certainly got the adventure she craved, and her pulse-pounding, soul-searching adventure has already attracted fans worldwide - a weblog that she kept whilst on her travels was receiving more than two-thousand hits a day. Her hilarious, brilliantly written travelog will appeal to anyone who's ever dreamt of jacking-it-all-in and running away to see the world.

From London to New York, Ewan and Charley chased their shadows through Europe, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia, across the Pacific to Alaska, then down through Canada and America. But as the miles slipped beneath the tyres of their big BMWs, their troubles started. Exhaustion, injury and accidents tested their strength. Treacherous roads, unpredictable weather and turbulent politics challenged their stamina. They were chased by paparazzi in Kazakhstan, courted by men with very large guns in the Ukraine, hassled by the police, and given bulls' testicles for supper by Mongolian nomads. And yet despite all these obstacles they managed to ride more than twenty thousand miles in four months, changing their lives forever in the process. As they travelled they documented their trip, taking photographs, and writing diaries by the campfire. Long Way Round is the result of their adventures - a fascinating, frank and highly entertaining travel book about two friends riding round the world together and, against all the odds, realising their dream.

Women, Motorcycles and the Road to Empowerment explores the relationship between women, motorcycling and personal power. Fifty women motorcyclists share stories of how they have tapped into that power and how it has shaped their lives. Using her own story as a framework, Liz Jansen provides first-hand accounts of the transformational power of motorcycles. Stories from other women are lashed onto that framework and enhance the core message: that by embracing our authentic self and accepting our limitations, we move beyond what we ever dreamt was possible. The women represent all disciplines of riding and come from diverse backgrounds; including one of Hollywood’s top stuntwomen, federal politicians, artists, activists, adventurers, business leaders, racers, a dental hygienist. While the motorcycle is the vehicle of transformation for these women, it’s not necessary to be a rider to understand the book’s message. How one learns to embrace and overcome challenges and reap the rewards, weaves an exquisite tapestry that becomes the picture of who we are. At some point in our lives, we stand at a threshold we need to cross to reach our destination. This can be daunting, particularly when it is toward something non-traditional. Making the decision to take that step has implications for how the rest of our life unfolds. That threshold occurs at different periods in the life of everyone, often many times. The answer is to look within, discover where we are and summon the limitless power that resides within us and moves us forward. This book is about the journey along one’s personal, emotional and spiritual path to enlightenment and becoming all that we can be: why we’re on this road trip. The stories illustrate how motorcycling allows and encourages this.

Jupiter's Travels -Ted Simon's astonishing 4 year motorbike journey around the world The book that inspired Ewan McGregor's Long Way Round In the late 1970s Ted Simon set off on a Triumph and rode 63,000 miles over four years through fifty-four countries in a journey that took him around the world. Through breakdowns, prison, war, revolutions, disasters and a Californian commune, he travelled into the depths of fear and reached the heights of euphoria. He met astonishing people and was treated as a spy, a welcome stranger and even a god. For Simon the trip became a journey into his own soul, and for many others - including bikers Charley Boorman and Ewan McGrergor - it provides an inspiration they will never forget. This classic text, which has informed a whole genre of travel writing in the thirty years since it was first published, will never be bettered for sheer adventure, passion, humour and honesty. Brought up in England by a German mother and a Romanian father, Ted Simon found himself impelled by an insatiable desire to explore the world. It led him to abandon an early scientific career in favour of journalism, and he has worked for several newspapers and magazines on Fleet Street and elsewhere. Ted Simon is also the author of Riding Home and The Gypsy in Me.
