What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Some touring veterans, like Fred Rau, have a knack for putting wisdom into words. Whether you're new to the motorcycle travel or a hard-boiled pro, check out Rau's Motorcycle Touring Bible." - Rider Magazine                            “If you are a newbie to the incredibly large group of motorcycle touring lovers then this book is a must read for you. But, even if you have thousands of touring miles behind you, you will probably learn quite a bit too. The "Bible" may be written for the newbie, but there was plenty for us to learn as well." - Backroads                     "With all those decades of riding motrocycles under his belt, Rau has the requisite experience and knowledge to write THE instruction manual on motorcycle touring. Fred Rau's book is a worthwhile primer for touring newbies - as well as a good look for experienced riders to thumb through on that lazy Sunday when the weather outside is not fit for man nor bike." - Friction Zone         

"All in all this is an enjoyable look into the philosophy of one of the giants in the motorcycle industry." - Bikernet.co

I heard Mr Rau speak at a bike rally (Americde) this past summer and he was a fine speaker. I guess I expected some of that to come across in his book but was disappointed. The book is somewhat of a cross of his opinion of what to do and not do to make a sucsessful motorcycle tour. There are a lot better books available when it comes to the nuts and bolts of motorcycle touring. Unfortunately Mr Rau comes across as rather full of himself in this book. Hardly worth the large price.

A lot of useful information for those thinking of taking an extended ride for the first time and for some experienced riders alike.
