16 June, 2014 - Book Review: Freedom on Both Ends of the Leash: A Dog, His Man, Their Journey 
Freedom on both ends of a leash
#Book #Review - Here is one excellent book you should think you buy and read. Called 'Freedom on Both Ends of the Leash: A Dog, His Man, Their Journey' it's the heartfelt story of Ara and his faithful dog Spirit and trusted BMW GS with sidecar, travelling the USA. Much like Neil Peart's 'Ghost Rider' book, it will effect you, but also amaze you. Truly recommendable book for adventure motorcycle riders, food lovers and life-story-aficionados.

9 May, 2012 - Cyril Despres Writes A Book and Why You Should Buy It
4x Dakar Book
Cyril Despres logo
Any Dakar fan will know the name. You can't escape it if you watch the famous car & motorcycle rally. Cyril Despres, 4 time winner of the Dakar, and 9 times on the finish podium, needs no introduction.

Cyril is a mild manner gentleman, and an "alien" (to coin a MotoGP phrase) motorcycle racer. The Frenchman has published a book, entitled "4X Dakar", about his Dakar experience. As Cyril has said himself "Normally a rider waits until the end of his career before publishing a retrospective. Except that I have never been a fan of convention!".

The reason this factory KTM rider is publishing a book is to raise money for a school in Africa that he started after the untimely death of his friend Fabrizio Meoni in the 2005 Dakar rally in Africa. The school is located in the suburbs of Dakar, Senegal, and has 13 teachers and 321 children. But the area has 500 children who can not go to a school, so Cyril wants to expand the school and for that he needs money.

Automotophoto Simoncelli 58of58 book
Not many people get the chance of mingling with the Gods of MotoGP, and very rare are those who are around them all of the time. But MotoGP professional photographer, Andrew Wheeler, is one of those rare individuals.

For years he has been flying all over the world, following the MotoGP circus from track to track, making photos that you will have all seen in print or on the web. His photos are very much sought after for those interested in motorcycle racing.

It's therefore no surprise that his enormous collection of photos he had made over the last few years contained many of the late Marco Simoncelli, #58.

As a tribute to Simoncelli, Andrew has released a limited edition book full of fantastic photos of the man-who-left-us too-soon. The book is called "58 of #58", and it's a 12 by 12 hardbound book with 49 pages of Marco.

If you read the comments on Facebook you will see that many are truly enjoying this book.

10% of the proceeds of the book go to the Simoncelli Foundation.

24 June, 2008 - Book Review: Dreaming of Jupiter
Ted Simon Dreaming of Jupiter book
It's not often that you get a sequel to a motorcycle adventure book, and it's rare, or even impossible, that the book is as good as the first. but in Ted Simon's case, he's proven the theory wrong!

In the 1970's Ted set out crisscrossing the world for 4 years on his Triumph motorcycle, and writing a classic book entitled "Jupiter's Travels". Now, AT 70 YEARS OF AGE, Ted is riding the same route again. 3 years later, 59,000 miles on a BMW GS, he's written the sequel "Dreaming of Jupiter".

This is one book you can not put down. Great for the summer vacation! Funny, entertaining, and most of all RESPECT!

6 March, 2007 - Book Review: Carla King’s American Borders
For those of you who like to read a great motorcycle adventure book, here's one that truly is great! Written by Carla King, a fellow MBI blogger and a travel journalist, Carla knows how to put a sentence together.

Carla's book entitled "American Borders" is the true story of her long ride to all corners of the USA on a Russian built Ural motorcycle. It was not just any old Ural, but the first one post-communist era, meant for export.

Needless to say, the motorcycle had a lot of problems, and Carla had to learn the hard way to fix the bike. Along the way she encountered many "strange" fellow travellers.

Her story is fun to read, entertaining and informative. A must read for anyone who like to read about adventure riding on a motorcycle.

I highly recommend this book for anyone, even if they're not riders!
