Editorial Reviews

"Every once in a while, a book does cross the desk that wakes us up, and The Essential Guide to Motorcycle Travel, by Dale Coyner, is just such a volume. . . . This book should be in every serious rider's library. . . .We've been riding for many years, yet we found his way of formatting a trip helpful, preparing the rider so there are fewer surprises along the way. . . ."Outfitting Your Bike" is the chapter that rally caught our attention. Dale gets into everything from lighting and GPS to how to solder wires! After reading his take on GPS receivers and satellite tracking, we will probably go out and buy one. The final section, "On The Road," is loaded with tips and how to handle on-the-road repairs." - Road Iron magazine
