Thanks 'Jacob.'

 Lovely review of Gone Riding posted on Amazon today...

Excellent book about Dom Giles' gap year.I picked up this book because it's got a nice picture of a adventure bike on the cover but this book is about more than motorcycling.

Dom seems to be having some kind of mid-life crisis,gives up his respectable job and buggers off around the world on a big,heavy motorcycle.,with little or no mechanical apptitude.

Dom writes in a easy style with a gentle sense of humour and although this book isn't a laugh out loud read it did make me smile.He did express that the trip had restored his faith in humanity and his story has encouraged me if not to ride around the World,to take my eleven year old son to Spain on the back of my v strom next year.
