HorizonsUnlimited description:

Memories of motorcycling days gone by for many of the 40 something of us out there. Remember the Honda CT-70? Then Came Bronson? Did you ever want a Harley so bad you were about to bust? Did you get tired of all the noise and move on to smooth, quiet power? Do you just want to ride farther the longer you ride? There's something for everyone. Riding tips, recent road trips and perspectives on  motorcycle life today. Lessons for living your life, and learning the hard way. Sprinkled with humor and pinches of sorrow. No matter if you know everything or nothing about motorcycles, hate them or love them, this reading will inspire and enrich your life because living your life is what it's really all about.

HorizonsUnlimited reviews:

Jonas M. Berwick from Duluth GA, USA: "For any of you who are avid motorcyclists, with a passion for the open road and the comraderie of riding with friends, this book is for you! What a great and refreshing journey and what a good read! The author knows how to describe the thrills and passion of motorcycling with being over technical or boring. I recommend this to anybody who has ever been on a cross country ride or who dreams about going on one!" A Reader: "This is a book about what happens when you come to a crossroads in life, when the kids grow up, a divorce happens, you retire, or you just decide to make more time for yourself (and less for your job). This is what the author writes about when, like many people in their 40's and above he found his girls grown up and himself watching too much TV. He returned to the hobby of his youth (motorcycling) and along the way tells us a little about his life, his philosophy and his view on the Discovery Channel show American Choppers (The author refers to it as a "soap opera for men"). Like all books with philosophy in them, there might be one or two things you don't agree with, but in general, this is a great book for those of us who are 40 and over, because the kids will grow up, you will retire someday, and you will end up wondering what to do with the next phase of your life. Puts the phrase "Mid-life crisis" (The author is NOT going through one) in a whole new light. P.S. The stories from Jeff's road adventures are equally as entertaining as the stories of his lifes adventures."
