These books are the fruits of a trial and error tree planted decades ago. The bad roads, the dead end trails, and the nasty places have been left out. What remains is a four-decade distillation of motorcycling in 38 American states, five Canadian provinces, five national forests, ten Pennsylvania state forests, and eight foreign countries. These articles contain valuable information that will save you time and money and enable you to efficiently plan your own adventures while avoiding the mistakes I've made. Let each article be a preview of your own adventures.
