About the Author

Jonathan Yates has always been a keen traveller, backpacking Australia and Asia immediately after graduating from university. His father's motorcycling exploits on a BSA Bantam back in the '60s left a lasting impression, encouraging him to finally pass his bike test in 1999. The combination of wanderlust and a motorcycle licence proved a great temptation. Jonathan soon part-exchanged his Yamaha Fazer for a Tenere, and the trip was on. He left the UK on the Eurostar, riding east to Beijing before continuing through South East Asia, Australia and the Americas during a one-year sabbatical. This book details how to organise such a trip, and features a series of daily photographs capturing Jonathan's own experiences on his amazing journey.

Reviews

a great insight into a year's road trip that took in six continents, 35 countries and 42,000 miles. A diary of a great journey on a Yamaha Tenere with brilliant pictures of life on the road, this is a must-read for anyone planning or yearning to do the same. Daily Express/Sunday Express Libraries are full of reflective, overthought travelogues. If you prefer yours presented with all the cheer of a tall tale told in a pub and put together with the artistic elan of a family Christmas newsletter, you will strike gold with "The Real Way Round" ... Yates' best gift to the reader is how easy he makes it all sound ... For us repressed bikers among the world's deskbound multitudes, it's a hard argument to resist. The New York Times THIS ENTERTAINING effort is the latest in a recent flood of books about motorcyclists on epic jaunts. It's also one of the best ... Yates' thoughts on the 35 countries he visited are illuminating ... What you take away from reading this is the sense that just about anyone could follow his lead. Octane good production values and a great deal of information ... If you're planning a round the world trip I think this could be quite a useful read The Road
