Motorcycle Touring Bible by Fred Rau

Touring on a motorcycle has never been more popular than it is today, but with more and more people hitting the open road, a growing number are doing so without the proper skills and information they need to survive the ordeal. Far too often the trip of a lifetime turns into an unmitigated disaster, leading to expensive breakdowns, arrests, lost wages, broken limbs, death, and even, on more than one occasion, divorce. Most people who travel aboard motorcycles have learned these lessons the hard way, if they’ve survived long enough, but now readers of the Motorcycle Touring Bible can learn an easier way; they can learn from author Fred Rau’s mistakes rather than through the school of hard knocks.

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.
