about

At the end of a great day of riding and exploring, have you ever wanted nothing more than to fall asleep, exhausted from new experiences, only to wake up the next day and do it all again? And again? And again?

Join the adventure as 33-year-old Rene Cormier politely removes himself from the working world that surrounds him and cashes in what few possessions he has to finance a three-yearlong motorcycle journey around the world. Never one to let excessive planning get in the way of a good ride, Rene runs out of money half way through the tour and ultimately takes five years to cover his 41-country, 154,000-kilometre (95,000-mile) route. Written with equal measure of cultural insight and travel logistics, this light travelogue brings you alongside Rene as he pulls off the ride of a lifetime, doing it the old-fashioned way; no sponsors, no support vehicles, and no idea about what he is going to learn along the way.

At 33 years old, Rene Cormier cashed in his physical world to finance a five-year around the world motorcycle tour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Read, Good Story This book describes the author's experience in riding his motorcycle around the world with very little money. It's a good story. Don't look for technical details of gear and skills required here but more the human side of things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read. Great Adventure. Great guy. I've read many motorcycle travel books, and this is one of my favourites. One of the few that I've read more than once. Rene proves that you don't have to be famous with a big budget to travel around the world by motorcycle. His enthusiasm runs throughout the book. Just like he is in person. I've met him twice, and he's a super nice guy.
