Building the Ultimate Adventure Motorcycle
The essential guide to preparing a bike for the journey of a lifetime
By: Robert Wicks Foreword: Grant Johnson
For any aspiring adventure motorcycle rider, the biggest decisions are what bike to choose and how to go about kitting it out.
Though some of the top adventure bikes currently on sale could arguably roll off the showroom floor and carry you just about anywhere in the world, it is human nature to tweak,
enhance, customise and ultimately personalise your chosen machine before heading off.
From simple questions such as the choice of tyres and the preferred luggage system, to more complex options such as navigation and communication equipment, there are myriad choices.
This extensively illustrated practical book provides in-depth coverage on preparing an adventure motorcycle for the journey of a lifetime.

using their own resources to survive life on the wild roads. It became even more hair-raising when events meant he would have to do the ride solo.
In this moving account Steve chronicles the entire experience: bike preparation, organisation, mechanical mayhem, personal discovery and – one reason for the trip –
