The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes by Robert Wicks
The essential guide to the greatest motorcycle rides in the world
The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes presents more than 30 of the greatest routes across the globe, all brought to life by the best collection of adventure motorcycling photography and maps ever assembled in one volume.
Picking a route is one of the most exciting prospects for any adventure motorcyclist and in this book the world's greatest routes have been compiled into a unique single collection for the first time.
Using real-world advice and planning from some of the world's leading adventure riders, The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes – the fourth book in the acclaimed Haynes adventure motorcycling series – offers readers comprehensive insight into the most spectacular, inspiring and challenging adventure routes across the globe. For the really adventurous there are epic trans-continental routes covering thousands of miles but there are also some short, must-see trails – for example in Morocco, Greece and Turkey – for those not wanting to venture too far afield.
Each route is accompanied by outstanding photography and a detailed map, with additional fact boxes on local sights, tips for riding and anecdotes from personal experiences. In every case the text in The World's Great Adventure Motorcycle Routes has been compiled by someone who has 'been there and done it', and the contributors include some of the best-known names in adventure motorcycling, people such as Kevin and Julia Sanders, Sam Manicom, Walter Colebatch, Joe Pichler and Andreas Hülsmann.
