Madder than trying to get an XR1200 airbourne. Emilio Scotto chose a Gold Wing to travel around the world, visiting 279 countries (I guess that must be most of them). The 500,000 miles only took him 10 years. This book looks like something you would find in the bargain bin in Woolworths (I got it as a birthday present from my brother, so it probably was), but its worthy. He makes Messrs McGregor and Boorman look like mollycoddled twats. A perfect turkey abuse come-down. Be humbled. Be inspired.
