Europe is high on every motorcyclist's travel list because it has great roads, beautiful scenery, centuries of history, and is safe. A stumbling block can be the false perception that it costs too much and takes too much time to figure out exactly where to go. Ballentine shows that Europe by motorcycle can be affordable and doable by leading enthusiasts to the small towns and villages connected by interesting backroads through beautiful, unspoiled countryside. Each ride is based on a theme such as the running of the bulls in Spain, a D-Day tour in France, tulips and windmills in Holland, and a Band of Brothers tour from France to Austria. All are illustrated with stunning full-color photographs. Detailed maps and full route descriptions are included as well as practical information on where to rent motorcycles, driving customs, money, camping, inexpensive accommodations, and the best places to sample regional cuisine. It's a must-have book for anyone considering touring Europe by motorcycle and the perfect companion volume to John Hermann's popular Motorcycle Journeys through the Alps and Beyond, 4th Edition.

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.

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"
