    Distant Suns by Sam Manicom

    This could easily be Manicom’s best book yet! I was riveted right from the very beginning and enjoyed every minute of the 3-year adventure the book details; containing a little bit of everything, from Africa to South America, a few short break downs and a handful of hospital stays in between. The adventures start with Africa but for only about ...

    Minor Details | Blood, Sweat, and Tires

    First, SLEDNECKS (all caps) is primarily a video production and apparel and outer-wear company focusing mostly on snowmobile kit. A few years ago they started getting more involved in motorcycles. (The name makes more sense now, ehy?) They sponsor a snowmobile race team, and more recently a motorcycle race team, which brings us to our review. Minor Details (MSRP $29.95, 80 ...

    Under Asian Skies by Sam Manicom

    Under Asian Skies picks up right where the Into Africa left off; with Manicom’s journey on a container ship with only five other passengers, somewhere in between Africa and Australia. After a stint in Australia and short medical stay in Germany, Manicom returned to re-start his Asian adventure in Bali with his bike ready to roll, a passenger/cost-sharing partner and ...

    Into Africa by Sam Manicom

    Into Africa takes off full blast into a crazy motorcycle adventure with nothing more than a short introduction describing Manicom’s decision to learn to ride a motorcycle, before he jumps head-first into riding into the throat of Africa. Within the first couple of pages, he ends up in an accident in Tanzania that leaves Manicom sitting in a jail cell ...

    Two Wheels Through Terror by Glen Heggstad

    While the thought of riding through South America sounds like great fun, I can’t imagine wanting to do it solo. And while I’ve heard Columbia is a strikingly beautiful country, I can’t imagine wanting to ride a motorcycle through the tumultuous nation. However, riding solo through South America and even Columbia is exactly what moto nut Glen Heggstad set out ...

    Lois on the Loose by Lois Pryce

    We must confess that had we seen this book sitting on the shelves, we probably wouldn’t have given it a second look. It’s cheesy, cartoon cactus back-dropping a photo-chopped outline of a gal wearing a BSA t-shirt astride a 225cc Serow does not scream “pick me up and read me”. (Not that we have any kind of aversion to attractive ...

    After reading the book, Long Way Round, documenting Ewan McGregor and Charlie Borman’s global circumnavigation, we here at corporate CanyonChasers [the wife and I] decided that we really wanted to see the television program. When Ewan and Charlie (we feel we’ve gotten to know them so well that we’re now on a first name basis)When Ewan and Charlie did their three ...
