The travels and travails of the bike world's most notorious rebel
In 2005 bike journalist Dan Walsh departed Peterborough on a 650 BMW and headed for South America to become a biking drifter, pilgrim, and latter-day heir to Ted Simon. His Bike magazine columns about his travel experiences - lyrical, edgy, fraught with danger, despair and surreal highs and lows - have earned him a vast cult following and he has been labelled as "the saviour of motorcycle writing". Dan still contributes to Bike magazine and is still out on the road. This is his first book.
