Now in its fourth decade, the much revised and expanded AMH7 catches up with all of it, covering among other things:* planning, sponsorship, riding seasons, fuel prices* bike choice and recommended models* the gear: what you need, 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: the Adventure Motorcycling Zone* Contributions from among others: Lois Pryce, Walter Colebatch, Gaurav Jani, Grant Johnson and many other two-wheel adventurers. Maps by Nick Hill. Now at 400 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 explanations of 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 of over 30 globetrotting contributors covering regions, topics or their specialist knowledge in added detail.
