I love this book because it gets me excited about getting on my motorcycle and going for an adventure, but there's very little information in it that I'd feel comfortable relying on as a single source.

The world is a fast-changing place. Motorcycle models, political boundaries, border relations, the bureaucracy of international travel and international routes are different today than they are yesterday. This book provides a great foundation on HOW to think about these things, but no book can be used as an authority on these subjects anymore; especially when you can tap in to fantastic internet sources reporting on daily changes in the territories (such as crossing South America's Darien Gap, where options are constantly changing thanks to new providers coming in, others leaving and laws governing the crossings changing regularly).

There's very little information in this book that can't be found more reliably in online forums like Advrider or Horizons Unlimited.

That said, there's something romantic about holding the pages between your fingers and getting excited about a big trip, and this book does that.

Even if you have a well worn copy of the last edition, it's worth upgrading to the latest (Nov, 2012 - 6th ed) of the AMH. Tons of new material and the same solid format that made this book great in the first place. Buy the book, read the book, ride out to an Overland Expo or a Horizons Unlimited meetup, do a few exploratory journeys (mostly to see how *little* you need to be comfortable on the road then go for it...

This book makes me want to hop on a motorcycle and ride everywhere! This book gives the aspiring ADV rider the recommendations necessary to get going. It's suggestions are extensive and cover many things that would have otherwise been overlooked (travel visas, international insurance, carnets, etc).

I've found it very easy to read for both short and long stints. It's spectacularly well-edited, you rarely find yourself having to turn the page to read the last two sentences of a section before putting the book down. The writing is concise and gives examples and alternatives that might be helpful to riders of all skill levels.

If you're even a bit interested in overland travel via motorcycle you should absolutely get this book. You won't be disappointed.

I don't have enough superlatives to describe this book. It's meticulously detailed, incredibly informative, and offers been-there-done-that guidance on practically every aspect of adventure touring. Of note: Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman of "Long Way Round" fame note that this was the first book they purchased in preparing for their journey. I've committed large sections of it to memory--if you're in the serious planning phase of a long motorcycle adventure, I'd recommend you do the same.

if you are planning to do any adventure motorcycle riding or touring, why not be as prepared as possible? Great resources in this book and tons of useful and helpful information. Things you wouldn't think of until you need them on the road, and then it's too late.
