I couldn't read this book. I tried, because I am interested in motorcycle touring recommendations, but the author's corny jokes and over the top folksiness made my skin crawl. I honestly couldn't read it.

He covers a lot of ground and includes some places I'll never get to, but you have to admire the fact that there are detailed rides and suggestions for motorcycle-ready back roads, attractions, lodging, and food that should keep any rider satisfied. Even if you only follow his lead on just ONE of these rides, at only $22 this book will save you at least that much in trying to figure out where to go. But there are 25 tours in here... Do the math.

I have enjoyed reading Great American Motorcycle Tours. I was a little disappointed that it did not have any rides in Texas, as that is where I live. However, it will be very helpful when I ride to areas I am unfamilar with and will help me to find the great motorcycle roads that I would otherwise miss. Gary McKechnie has a rider's point of view and that makes me think that I will enjoy my future tours as much as he enjoyed his. Between his and Daniel Meyer's books (Life is a Road series), you can enjoy motorcycle riding from the comfort of your own living room.
