High Praise for the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook

If you have any doubts about the value and utility of the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook, you need just look at the incredible praise from those who have used it and relied upon it. Ewan McGregor, who famously completed a "round the globe" journey for the documentary "Long way Round," said: "The first thing we did was buy Chris Scott's Adventure Motorcycling Handbook.

There has also been extensive praise from all sectors of the motorcycle industry. WebBikeWorld writes: "This book has, pound for pound, more hard facts and information about international motorcycle touring than anything else around."

Every red-blooded motorcyclist dreams of making the Big Trip--the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook is the comprehensive manual to make that idea a reality. Timbuktu to Kathmandu or Patagonia to Mongolia--it's all here. This expanded and re-designed new edition is packed with essential advice and practical know-how on the vital preparation for undertaking a long journey off the beaten track, be it in a nearby wilderness area or on the other side of the globe. So whether motorcyclists are planning their own Big Trip across Africa, Alaska, or Asia, or just enjoy reading about other people's adventures, this handbook is guaranteed to illuminate, entertain, and above all, inspire.

You'll Need More, Though

The Adventure Motorcycling Handbookis one of the best guides for adventure touring. In fact, it's just about the only book out there for this kind of information. Nevertheless, it has its faults. Chris Scott has updated his guide book five times over the years, but the last time the book was revised was in 2005 — and given the various safety and political issues that a biker has to face when travelling around the world, 2005 is a long, long time ago.

And of course lots of other things have changed over the years as well, like the motorcycle models that are available to name the most obvious. Chris Scott himself knew that he wouldn't be able to update the book often enough to keep up with all the changing information around the entire world, so the last edition includes advice on where to look on the web to get current information.

If you're the least bit interested in riding a motorcycle around the world, or even just an extended motorcycle adventure that includes off-road travel across an entire continent, Chris Scott's Adventure Motorcycling Handbook is the place you need to start so you can learn what you'll be in for. But you'll also have to do plenty of independent research, especially online, to ensure that you have all the latest information.
