Meet the Author

Phil Freeman has been an Alaskan motorcycle tour guide since 2000, and owns and operates MotoQuest tours.

Lee Klancher is a respected motorcycle journalist. Since riding a battered CT70 through three miles of log-crusted swamp on a quest for an Eskimo Pie at Whited’s General Store in Brill, Wisconsin (pop. 52 or so), Lee has been bitten by the motorcycle travel bug. Lee’s fascination with two-wheeled travel has taken him to Bolivia’s Amazon jungle, the Australian Outback, the palm-tree-lined beaches of the Dominican Republic, the mountain-ringed two-tracks of Alaska, and most of the backwater portions of the lower 48. Thanks to Escape, Lee got to take his love of new places, criminally poor command of the Spanish language, and his uncanny knack for bringing bad weather to beautiful places to the coast of Brazil. An unrepentant Packer fan and a shameless book junkie, Lee plans to continue pursue his quest for the perfect mini corn dog in the dive bars of the world.
