Mexico by Motorcycle: An adventure Story and Guide: by William B. Kaliker - A book review

Mexico by Motorcycle: An adventure Story and Guide - cover image
Although the book is by a biker for bikers, I was drawn into his insights and reflections on Mexico when he made his first trip down to the Yucatan in 1991.  This section is alive with rich detail and genuine appreciation for the people, culture, and physical beauty of the region. I was immersed in his story of the isolated stretch of road along the jungle when his bike died – the description of the experience was visceral and brought me there. Rita Pomade
