9781884313646: Mondo Enduro: Around the World Adventure on Two Wheels 40 Countries in 405 Days

In 1995, seven young British chaps set off from London on Suzuki DR350 motorcycles for a journey that would take them across Europe and Asia to the far eastern edge of Siberia, then from Anchorage, Alaska to Santiago, Chile, followed by South Africa, and finally back home to London. They called themselves "Mondo Enduro" and this book is the trip log they kept throughout their journey.

What sets this group apart from many long-distance travelers is their unpretentiousness, their refreshingly low-tech approach, their gusto, and their marvelous upbeat attitude. Their little successes become triumphs, their setbacks are just aggravations, today's scenery or tonight's tasty meal is the "best yet". They marvel at people calling their motorcycle journey an epic undertaking, when to them its just a year-long holiday. However, the flip and casual veneer of Mondo Enduro belies the inner strength of the team members as they meet and surmount extraordinary challenges that come their way.
