Europe is high on every motorcyclist's travel list because it has great roads, beautiful scenery, centuries of history, and is safe. A stumbling block can be the false perception that it costs too much and takes too much time to figure out exactly where to go. Ballentine shows that Europe by motorcycle can be affordable and doable by leading enthusiasts to the small towns and villages connected by interesting backroads through beautiful, unspoiled countryside. Each ride is based on a theme such as the running of the bulls in Spain, a D-Day tour in France, tulips and windmills in Holland, and a Band of Brothers tour from France to Austria. All are illustrated with stunning full-color photographs. Detailed maps and full route descriptions are included as well as practical information on where to rent motorcycles, driving customs, money, camping, inexpensive accommodations, and the best places to sample regional cuisine. It's a must-have book for anyone considering touring Europe by motorcycle and the perfect companion volume to John Hermann's popular Motorcycle Journeys through the Alps and Beyond, 4th Edition.
