‘Motorcycle Therapy’ by Jeremy Kroeker
Canada is a country of extremes, and Charley knows all about pushing the limits. He also meets a fascinating mix of people on his journey. Many listeners have indicated that they wanted more motorcycle stories similar to those contained in the previous book, 50 Wild Motorcycle Tales. This new book gives 50 More Wild Motorcycle Tales for your listening enjoyment.
Most of the stories were submitted to Motorcycle Views by visitors to the site. Walter lived and wrote 19 of these tales; eight of the 19 are fictional depictions of far-out motorcycle events that could happen. Jane Ann Kern wrote four stories before her untimely death. Some tales are short, and some are long. Each tale was edited to provide a good experience. This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one.
At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal. Recounting the three weeks of blood, sweat, and tearsthat make up a 7, mile journey from the glitzy streets of Paris to the hinterland of northwestern Africa, this incredible tale highlights the most arduous and notorious off-road motorsports event on the planet, the Paris-Dakar Rally.

I was looking for something more interesting and was somewhat disappointed. I found the writing to be too "wordy" in parts, like the author was trying too hard. And the fact that the 2 travellers were constantly bickering took away from "the adventure" and made me realize that one really has to find a compatible travel partner to really enjoy a road trip. I got the distinct feeling that the author didn't really enjoy the trip much and just wanted to get it over with like it was a chore, or maybe something to check off his "bucket list".
I like this book. It was a great one, as I contemplate my own first long ride someday. The only draw back was the lack of mention of the daily routine of maintenance, breakdowns and challenges in the machines.
Unless the machines were flawless I find most readers would prefer a bit more interaction with the aspect of the machinery and the challenges or pitfalls associated with them along the journey. That is my input as a frequent rider that would have preferred a bit more "shop talk". A good lighthearted read or listen.
I have listened to many many adventure motorcycle books and this one by far was the worst. It makes me want to throw away my motorcycle adventure plans and sell my bike Out of fear of dying of boredom. I am sure his trip was more of an adventure than this book alludes to. It was read as monotone and lifeless as possible. You can't stop listening with the hopes it must get better.
Never does. Sorry for the bad review but maybe it will help with your future documented trips. While the author did a good job adding some excitement with his narration, the story was a bit lacking and in some ways unappealing. As a motorcycle rider who has done a larger version of his same trip solo I could see what he was trying to portray, but only because I had ridden many of the same tracks.
For me it was the latent homophobia that lurked just below the surface in many parts of the book and the treatment of women as objects in his writing that kept pulling me from the story.
