In this new, updated edition, motojournalist, Marty Berke shows the way to the best scenic, curving roads the great American Southwest has to offer. From favourite belt-notching rides like Pikes Peak Highway, the Million Dollar Highway, and Route 66, to small no-name two-lane delights that lead to places like Bryce, Zion, and Grand Canyon National Parks, unforgettable roads and adventures await those wanting to explore the "four-corner states" of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah on two wheels. The book suggests 64 separate riding trips, each about a day in length, with seasoned advice on the best campgrounds, parks, scenic landmarks, and restaurants along the way. Topographical maps, clear directions, and plenty of photographs enhance Berke's lively description of each ride.This popular travel guide for motorcyclists captures all the grandeur and natural beauty of the region and introduces riders to places and sights they would never find on their own. Now completely updated, new generations of riders can enjoy the celebrated treasures as well as the little-known gems the region has to offer, refreshingly free of tourist traffic. For, as Marty says, "a journey, unlike a trip, is an opportunity for wandering and exploring new territory with all five senses."
