Man in the Saddle
Translated from the Dutch by Nienke Hartog, Man in het Zadel
ISBN-13 9781890623623, $21.99, 372 Pages, Softcover
Deadhorse to Ushuaia—an epic journey on many long distance riders’ bucket lists. But few would contemplate tackling that ride on a vintage 1975 Moto Guzzi. The author’s choice of motorcycle is as unique as his interactions with the people and history he finds along the way. This is not the typical account of that route across the Americas, but one which is as uncommon as the rider, the Dutch print journalist Paul van Hooff—the Man in the Saddle.
On the heels of a catastrophic eye injury, multiple surgeries, and years of recovery, on a dark night on the Blue Ridge Parkway, finally back in the saddle of his motorcycle, the author’s return to riding grinds to a crashing halt. In an instant, there’s a deer in his windscreen. Everything goes black then he wakes up on the pavement. Wrist surgery is followed by more recovery…then another setback. On the eve of his return to riding, the sight in the good remaining eye darkens at the edges—a detached retina. The next day he is in surgery again…and recovery…again. In his mid-sixties, the time left to ride to all the places he’d dreamed about now seemed limited, but he vows to himself he’s not done yet.
By October of 2021, doctors say he can ride again. Between then and the following October, 24,000 miles roll under the wheels of the new Tiger he’d bought to replace his wrecked Bonneville as he explores the United States. These are the stories of that year in motion.

Travels through America
by Alex Kendall
ISBN-13 9781890623876, $20.99, 254 Pages, Softcover
Travels through America using the iconic Greyhound buses, the Amtrak trains, and an Indian Motorcycle. Alex Kendall wanted to see the “real” America and experience life on the road once again.
Along the way, he travelled 20,000 miles; destroyed his spinal column; got mistaken for a model; had breakfast with a stuntman; survived for three days on two packets of nuts; hung out with gold miners, ex-cons and famous comedians; nearly drowned on a motorcycle; and became a drug smuggler.
This book is a combined guidebook, travel journal, and a warning to dreamers.
