When I was seventeen, my mother, who hated that I ride motorcycles, advised me the reading of entitled Ted Simon's book " the Jupiter's travels ". Ted Simon's story redrew is four years journey around the world, leaving is country of origin, UK, in 1972 and crossing the five continents on a T120 Triumph Bonneville. It was for me a real revelation, and an initiation into travel. A must be read!
