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.

The Improbable Inclination to Travel on Two Wheels
ISBN-13 9781890623746, $199.99, 254 Pages, Softcover
Like Ron Davis’s first book, Shiny Side Up, Rubber Side Down: The Improbable Inclination to Travel on Two Wheels is a compilation of stories with some connection to the motorcycle life; however, it also includes not only new motorcycling stories, but reviews, personality profiles, and a few memoirs. Ron said, “One of the most gratifying responses I heard to Shiny Side Up was that you didn’t have to be a motorcyclist to enjoy it. I hope that’s even more true with this second volume.”
I’ve enjoyed Ron Davis’s columns and stories in BMW Owners News (and other vessels of general motorcycle enthusiasm) for a long time, and not just because he has the good sense to live in Wisconsin and ride in our scenic and very special range of hills and valleys called the Driftless Area, or because he seems to be drawn to many of the same motorcycles I am—at almost exactly the same time in his life. I think it’s because he writes about these things with insight and a knack for detail that captures both the fun and mystique (and occasional absurdity) of our shared motorcycle infatuations at the same time. Although Davis writes with expertise, he never poses as an expert, and he shares his experiences with modesty and humor, as one who is learning as he goes along. Which is what we all do in real life. And he does what all the best motorcycle writing does: he makes you wonder why you aren’t out there riding your own bike, right now…his work simply helps you stay sane until spring.
—Peter Egan, Cycle World columnist and author of Leanings 1, 2 and 3 and The Best of Peter Egan.
This collection of relaxingly sweet remembrances and stories covers a wide range of moto-related experiences and topics. It’s partly an anthology and partly a memoir and makes a perfect way to take your imagination far from a long winter’s seasonal hibernation. You may not learn too much, at least not consciously, but you’ll enjoy every easy minute spent with this gently humorous and humble scribe.
—Mr. Subjective (Andy Goldfine, founder of Aerostich Rider Wearhouse)
“Plainspoken, amiable and dry-witted, Ron’s humble manner ironically makes you curious what he might have to say about all sorts of things. With this second collection, it’s easy to sit down and enjoy more of his amusing musings on two-wheeled life, no digging through magazine archives required. Readers also get a glimpse of his breadth via several pieces composed for audiences outside the world of motorcycling. Actually, this works both ways: even when pondering bikes and all we love about them, Ron captures the human element, appealing to non-motorcyclists, too. Heartfelt tales of pursuing joy, mastery and wisdom—along with the misadventures inevitably involved—are great fun for everyone (though riders will groan most loudly at familiar travails).”
—Mark Barnes, Author of Why We Ride, columnist for Motorcycle Consumer News, and creator of the podcast The Ride Inside
