A rip-roaring Harley ride across America, told through the investigative lenses of a pair of husband-and-wife itinerant bikers from the UK

Told in a conversational and often times humorous tone, this is the story of Tom Cunliffe and his wife Roz, who took life in the saddle and on to the American highways and byways astride the quintessential dream machine: the Harley-Davidson. Beginning in Baltimore—where they first had to find a suitable bike for Roz to ride—they journeyed northwest through Washington, Oregon, and California, and then back east again through Arizona, Texas, and up the Atlantic coast. With flashbacks to the '60s, the eclectic assortment of moonshiners, bikers—both hard and not-so-hard—cowhands, Sioux Indians, strippers, bible bashers, war veterans, southern gents, and the occasional alligator delivers a unique insight into the diversity of the United States. As Tom himself says: "Conclusions about other nations are hazardous, and I have hesitated to draw any. Readers may find their own among the tire tracks."

A nice travelogue. At times too self absorbed and pretentious. I like a travelogue to be something where you wish you could spend time with the authors (eg McCarthy's bar). Read full review
