I got one and it is a very good read. It will most certainly be a very usefull aid as a trip planner. It is encouraging to see that the book is not just another "BMW GSA male thing" but includes a number of lady riders and other makes. The 650 singles brigade ?????.....maybe next time. The book has a very objective approach about adventure riding and makes your bumside itch for the saddle. The author has threatened to write a follow up and I am sure that if he gets the support that he deserves that number 2 will be even beter and out soon. Hikers, fisherman, 4x4's, runners, cyclists ect. all got their fair share of reading matrial on the book shelves, it is about time that motorcylce adventure riders get theirs.  :thumleft:

Pity it is in Cape town only and not going to be up in Joburg.

I was at the map studio shop In Rivonia 20 minutes ago and they have it on ""special"" for R185-00....?????

What Special????? :lamer:

Normal price is R265.00. That R185.00  is still a special IMO.  (FIXED)

Just received a confirmation reminder from Inga...

Asked her if she will have stock, as we want to buy 'gifts'...

Her response... We've had a great response, it looks like it's going to be a fun evening and we'll have plenty of books!
