I have just finished reading "Sorebums" Rattling Around Asia by Simon Mccarthy and Georgie Simmons . I would say it must be essential reading for anybody considering riding in Asia . Also , essential reading even if you are not thinking of travelling around Asia . A story of pot holes , perils and "poo pies" . It has real drama and laugh out loud humour . I enjoy travel writing and motorcycle travel writing in particular and I can safely say that this is the best travel book I have read .
I would just like to add that I am not related to Simon or Georgie in any way . Apologies to Grant if this is not the correct forum for this kind of entry .
