This is the best known of my books. It tells about my four-year journey around the world on a Triumph motorcycle.
The first half of the journey took me the length of Africa, from Tunis to Capetown, then around South America from the tip of Brazil to the Argentine Pampas and from Chile north through Panama to California.
Then I rode around Australia, and from Singapore overland to Europe through India, Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey.
Motorcycle Sport called it "...the best motorcycle travel book ever written." Readers and reviewers agree it is much more than a travel book.
It is a book that changes lives, and there are many readers' letters to prove it. In the years sinceJupiter's Travels was first published it has sold more than 400,000 copies world-wide.
This book caused Ewan McGregor to confound his agent, and take off on a motorcycle trip around the world, and it has inspired countless others. Don't say we didn't warn you.
