Popular motojournalist Clement Salvadori has been sharing his stories in the Rider magazine "Road Tales" column since 1988. Now, 101 of those engaging stories have been brought together in one book, cleverly illustrated by his long-time friend Gary Brown. Rather than a detailed travel guide to places near and far, this collection is a guide to the enjoyment of traveling, especially by motorcycle, spun by an observant and experienced rider who can make a quick spin on his local backroads just as entertaining as a trip across the country. With an informal style that makes Salvadori seem like a dinner guest, you'll meet some of the characters he has encountered, laugh with him at some of his blunders, and join him for bread, cheese, wine, and a stupendous vista somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of humanity. Though he does admit to being destination-oriented at times, many of his columns focus on the little things that make the journey itself the most memorable—the rhythm of the road, the music of the bike, the beauty of the ride, and the exhilaration of being at one with all of it.
