Somebody above said: Che Guevara's - The Motorcycle Diaries...

Haven't read the book, but just saw the film, in Spanish, with subtitles.

If you've been to South Am, it'll make you want to return there tomorrow.

If you haven't, it'll inspire you to go.

Also if you've ridden an Enfield Bullet in India, you'll empathise with Ernesto and him mate on their unreliable Norton.

The film also helps to get inside Che's head.

All IMHO of course,

ChrisB

Just read "Long Way Round", tale of Ewan McGregor & Charlie Boormans recent worldtrip.

Interesting but unlike several other books I've read recently, I did not feel as if I was there with them for most of the trip?

Their mechanical knowledge seemed extremely limited, perhaps as a result of having full 4x4 back up with personal tool chests & Digital Torque Wrenches & BMW mechanics flying out to repair/replace fried Servo/ABS boxes?

re: Che's Diary:

One of my biggest disappointments. I found it very boring except for a few select part. There are a couple of sections where you see Che coming to the realization that radical change is needed. Haven't seen the movie, but this could be a case where the movie is better than the book, because it is what Che sees throughout S.A. that transforms him.

Just finished Road Fever by Tim Cahill on the recommendation from someone at a HU meeting. It's not a motorcycle book, but a high speed record breaking run from tierra del Fuego to Purdhoe Bay. A good read with lots of humor (especially about border crossings) and some insightful comments.

The movie "The motorcycle diaries" is fantastic! I give it four stars. Che´s sidekick Alberto steals the show, he is hilarious. I highly recommend it. They got the bike right too, looks original and sounds right.

Note to all - we've added a stack of new books to our books pages. More to come too. If you're looking for motorcycle/travel books, that's the place to start. (Link on left, under Trip Planning) And of course, if you start looking through Amazon from one of our Amazon links, we get a small piece of whatever you buy, (all Amazon stuff, books, cds electronics etc!) and it doesn't cost you anything more, so we really appreciate it when you do!

Thanks!

Grant

Yes, go buy Danny Liska's "Two wheels to adventure" from his wife. An adventure like his probably is no longer possible in this age where pavement is considered progress.

I read a great book by a woman describing her ride with her girlfriend from England to South Africa in the 1930s. They took a trailer and, if I recall, a sidecar too. Right across the Sahara, pushing it most of the way. Amazing acheivement.

It was from that era when the empire threw up rich British explorers determined to bring tea with milk, cucumber sandwiches and the Scottish Light Regiment to all parts of the globe. Terrific stuff.

As for the reference...hmmm

Simon is talking about Theresa Wallach and Florence Blenkiron, who rode a Panther through Africa in 1935. The book, Rugged Road, is available from Panther Publishing in the UK.

Google will find it all I'm sure.

Hi all
As reding MCtravel books is one of my pleasures. i have got quite a lot of them. i made my list of the ten-best-inspiering MC travel books:
1)Ted Simon - jupiter travels
2)Robert Edison Fulton-one man caravan
3)Ed Culberson - obsessions die hard
4)Danny Liska - two wheels to adventure
5)Dave Barr - riding the edge
6)Ernasto Che Guevara- the motocycle diaries
7) Werner Bausenhart-all 4 books on his mc travels
8)Jonny Bealby - running with the moon
9)Neil Peart-ghost rider
10)Tereesa Wallach-the rugged road
just close to the be in that list:
- Noch Miyake-purple mountains
- E.mecgregor&C.Boorman(shadow writer)-long way round
- Keith thye-moto raid
- Andres Carlstein-odyssey to ushuaia
- Ted Simon - riding high
- Helge Pedersen-10 years on 2 wheels
*a good trip but somethig did't work with writing the story:
- Gim Rogers-investment biker
- Jerry Smith - into the heart of africa
- Piet W Boonstra- motorcycling stories
- Gary Paulsen - pilgrimage on a steel ride
my best useful books:
- Chris Scott - MAH books(just orderd 5th eddition)

book : "une demoiselle sur une moto"
author : anne france dautheville
editor : flamarion
other book : "Et j'ai suivi le vent ..."

a beautiful and clever french girl riding the world in the 70's with a real adventurer spirit, a bit philosophical / intellectual ...

for the cover and comments on the book :
http://www.forum-auto.com/sqlforum/s...et55895-70.htm

see under for more details (in french sorry) :
translation link : http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en


"Votre Web Scribe se demande parfois ce qu'est devenue Anne-France DAUTHEVILLE, frèle et charmante jeune fille, qui se lança dans un rallye mondial au guidon d'une bicylindre 850 GUZZI, qui pesait bien trois fois son propre poids ... !
Eh bien, elle en vint à bout, et en écrivit les péripéties dans un livre intitulé "Une Demoiselle sur une Moto", publiée chez Flammarion.
Puis, peu de temps après, plus sagement montée sur une petite 125 Japonaise, elle récidiva, et nous offrit: "Et j'ai suivi le vent ... " (Un titre qui a toujours fait rêver mon côté marin breton à voile)
Depuis Anne-France DAUTHEVILLE a écrit bien d'autres livres tous aussi succulents, qui ne roulent plus à moto, mais qui méritent eux aussi les heures que vous passerez à les lire."

other old books, mainly in french :
