There are many different ways to use this book, mainly depending on what kind of motorcyclist one is.
Yes, the option "I'm not a motorcyclist yet" is contemplated here.
The book is split into two well different sections, the first one being devoted to itineraries, ad it seems damn worth reading (I'm not even south african, but after three journeys there, I got to some level of knowledge of the country that made me get really enthralled by almost any of the advised trips), while the second section is all about tech discussion.
This second section is real basic stuff and could cause many "experts" to get impatient.
I think good notions are ALWAYS worth revisions.
If the teller has also a nice way to do that, there really remains not a single reason noo to follow him.
I also appreciated the fact that repeatedly it is recalled that speeding is not to be taken lightly, and that's why I haven't really appreciated the parts where the author admits to some "disruption" of the golden rule of not overspeeding.
to resume, a book full of good ideas and tips, as well as a pretty useful guide for beginners, yet quite useful for experts too.
The only category that will undoubtedly hate this book is the 4x4 people, but it'll take quite a while to discover why!!!
