Its Summer and its time for more road trips! The roads are starting to clear, the temperature is kinda hot but at least its not raining ever now and then. All we need is some inspiration to call our friends and organize an epic road trip! So, what better inspiration rather than an awesome motorcycle book? So, I tried to find out and choose only the 5 rad ones! Next to every title there is gonna be a description and a link so you can buy the book directly from Amazon.
1. Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values
The story of the narrator, his son Chris and their month-long motorcycle odyssey from Minnesota to California profoundly affected an entire generation.Both personal and philosophical, this book is a compelling study of relationships, values, madness and, eventually, enlightenment. From my point of view, this book mustt be the first on the list! Its a very easy reading book that have sell many copies and its only cost 8£! You can buy it from here!
2. Jupiter’s Travels
In the late ’70s Ted Simon rode 63,000 miles over four years through fifty-four countries in a journey that took him around the world. Through breakdowns, prison, war, revolutions, disasters and a Californian commune, he travelled into the depths of fear and reached the heights of euphoria. He met astonishing people and was treated as a spy, a welcome stranger and even a god. For Simon the trip became a journey into his own soul, and for many others – including bikers Charley Boorman and Ewan McGrergor – it provides an inspiration they will never forget!

The journey was full of bravery. From feeling the traffic passing and almost touching you as you ride through Indian cities, to mounting associate elephant to pass difficult roads (yes really!) and climb Macchu Picchu, this is a wonderful book full of surprises.

4. In Search of Greener Grass
The book has been written strick for riders and people who enjoy travelling and adventure. In this book, the author describes every adventurous travels by motorbike and his life as a whole.
