From Chris Scott:

"Interest in adventure motorcycling has grown massively since the last edition of AMH and now in it’s third decade, the much revised and expanded AMH6 catches up with all of it. With a 100 extra pages, AMH6 no longer assumes you’re an experienced tourer who’s decided to take off to the outer limits. Many AM riders are much like Ted Simon was in 1970s; individuals in search of adventure who choose a motorcycle. Readers aren’t expected to have an in-depth knowledge of mechanics, travel health, riding techniques or navigation, so there are fuller explanations of how things work and why certain choices are worthwhile, as well as a comprehensive listing on troubleshooting. This more than ever makes AMH6 a take-with guidebook as one to consult during the planning stage. 

Among other things AMH6 covers:

• planning, sponsorship, riding seasons, fuel prices
• bike choice and recommended models
• the gear: what you need, not what you can buy
• a new section on road legal quad bikes
• Life on the Road: borders, comms, police trouble, satnav, filming and moto troubleshooting
• Comprehensive overland route outlines in Africa, Asia and Latin America – aka: the Adventure Motorcycling Zone (AMZ)
• Contributions from among others: Lois Pryce, Walter Colebatch, Gaurav Jani, Grant Johnson and many other two-wheel adventurers"
