I'm looking for a way to read Danny Liska's "Two wheels to adventure" a book that is out of print. and as "White horse press publishing" told me, it will not be reprinted. The late Danny Liska was a pioneering bike adventurer that wrote on his travel from Alaska to Argentina in days that such way of seeing the world was rare. I heard this book is one of the best written on the subject. I have a collection of 67 books on adventure biking. and I'm plannig to write one my self (in Hebrew). I found that Barnes&Noble are selling a used copy for mor than $700(!)
Is there a way I can borrow such a book? someone? any idea?
Thakns a lot
Thanks to those that replied.
7 weeks ago after reading Werner Bausenhart's 4 books teling his story of motorcycling aroud the world From Nordkapp to Cape York on a Motorcycle.Africa: Against the Clock on a Motorcycle.8 Around the Americas on a Motorcycle.Into the Den of the Bear and the Lair of the Dragon on a Motorcycle) I contacted him by mail. three weeks later Werner visited me in israel. we had good time together. after Werner went home to Canada. he sent me Liska's book as a gift.
I would like to thank him here again.hope I'll hit the road with half the passion and curiosity to explore, this guy have .
I ordered this book through Amazon and because of a screwup in the office mail I ended up with two copies. I am about to return one copy, but if someone here wants it I'll sell it for what I bought it for.

I'll have it it Grant doesn't want it. Just let me know the costs inc. shipping to the UK.
I paid 59.95 from someone selling them on Amazon as another post indicated. When I didn't get the book after 4 weeks he immediately sent me another one; didn't seem like it was scarce. I'm going to email him that I'll keep and also ask if he has more. It is a hard cover, says copyrigth 1989 with no edition number. There is a number 1 on the cover in the top right hand corner. There are more than one editions? Grant, I guess you are first. I will sell it a cost plus shipping.
I met Danny Liska in 1990 and bought his book direct from him, signed. Its a first edition hardback, published in 1989,printed in Columbia. Inside the front cover it says it is also simultaneously published in Spanish under the title, 'Dos Ruedas a la Aventura'by Relikassa Ltda, Apartado Aereo 22400 Bogata, Columbia.
His wife was Columbian, living in Columbia at that time and he had a ranch in Nebraska, and he flitted between Columbia and the U.S.
Tread warily, Grant, I bought some books a few years ago from Vancouver and had to pay a stunning amount in customs duty. That's all I remember- I can't even remember to who(m) I paid the duty i.e. at the far end or at this end. It could be, of course that you are familiar with this sort of thing, if not, find out where you stand in case you get clobbered.
