25th anniversary edition of the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook The first thing we did was buy Chris Scott's 'Adventure Motorcycling Handbook Ewan McGregor, The Long Way Round Adventure motorcycling (a term Chris was credited with coining in the late 90s)has grown massively since the last edition of AMH. Now in itsfourth decade, the much revised and expanded AMH7 catches up with all of it, coveringamong other things: planning, sponsorship, riding seasons, fuel prices bike choice and recommended models the gear: what youneed, not what you can buy Life on the Road: borders, comms, police trouble, satnav, filming and moto troubleshooting Comprehensive overland route outlines in Africa, Asia and Latin America aka: theAdventure Motorcycling Zone Contributions from among others: Lois Pryce, Walter Colebatch, Gaurav Jani, Grant Johnsonand many other two-wheel adventurers.Maps byNick Hill Now at400 pages, the book no longer assumes you re an experienced tourer who s decided to take off to the outer limits. Many AM riders are much like Ted Simon was in 1970s; individuals in search of adventure and who happen to choose a motorcycle. Readers aren t expected to have an in-depth knowledge of mechanics, travel health or navigation, so there are fuller explanationsof how things work and why certain choices are worthwhile, as well as a comprehensive listing on troubleshooting. This now makes AMH7 as much a take-with book as one to consult during the planning stage. What really makes the AMH special, however, is that it capitalizes on the knowledge and experience ofover 30 globetrotting contributors covering regions, topics or their specialist knowledge in added detail. These contributors as well as a light touch is what s helped make Trailblazer sAdventure Motorcycling Handbookthe legendary manual after 25 years in print. .AMH6: everything you need to know, in one book"
