25th anniversary edition of the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook The first thing we did was buy Chris Scott's 'Adventure Motorcycling Handbook Ewan McGregor, The Long Way Round Adventure motorcycling (a term Chris was credited with coining in the late 90s)has grown massively since the last edition of AMH. Now in itsfourth decade, the much revised and expanded AMH7 catches up with all of it, coveringamong other things: planning, sponsorship, riding seasons, fuel prices bike choice and recommended models the gear: what youneed, not what you can buy Life on the Road: borders, comms, police trouble, satnav, filming and moto troubleshooting Comprehensive overland route outlines in Africa, Asia and Latin America aka: theAdventure Motorcycling Zone Contributions from among others: Lois Pryce, Walter Colebatch, Gaurav Jani, Grant Johnsonand many other two-wheel adventurers.Maps byNick Hill Now at400 pages, the book no longer assumes you re an experienced tourer who s decided to take off to the outer limits. Many AM riders are much like Ted Simon was in 1970s; individuals in search of adventure and who happen to choose a motorcycle. Readers aren t expected to have an in-depth knowledge of mechanics, travel health or navigation, so there are fuller explanationsof how things work and why certain choices are worthwhile, as well as a comprehensive listing on troubleshooting. This now makes AMH7 as much a take-with book as one to consult during the planning stage. What really makes the AMH special, however, is that it capitalizes on the knowledge and experience ofover 30 globetrotting contributors covering regions, topics or their specialist knowledge in added detail. These contributors as well as a light touch is what s helped make Trailblazer sAdventure Motorcycling Handbookthe legendary manual after 25 years in print. .AMH6: everything you need to know, in one book"

Die rote Rakete am Nanga Parbat

Author: Reinhold Messner
Publisher: Piper ebooks
ISBN: 9783492950930
Release Date: 2014-06-26
Genre: Sports & Recreation

Am 27. Juni 1970 gelingt den Südtiroler Brüdern Reinhold und Günther Messner erstmals die Durchsteigung der Rupalflanke am Nanga Parbat, der mit 4500 Metern höchsten Fels- und Eiswand der Welt. Doch der Abstieg über die andere Seite ins Diamirtal endet tragisch mit Günthers Lawinentod. Auf Betreiben des Expeditionsleiters werden die wahren Umstände der Katastrophe unterschlagen. Messners eigene Darstellung der dramatischen Odyssee, eigenwillig wie ein Drehbuch geschrieben, wird verboten; er selbst wird zum Ziel jahrzehntelanger Rufmordkampagnen, den jüngeren Bruder seinem Ehrgeiz geopfert zu haben. Erst jetzt, 40 Jahre danach, ist sein lange vergriffenes, bis heute hoch gehandeltes erstes Buch zum Geschehen am »nackten Berg« wieder erhältlich. Ab 14. Januar in den Kinos.

Azerbaijan

Author: Mark Elliott
Publisher: Trail Blazer Publications
ISBN: 1873756798
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Travel

In 1999, the first edition of this book put Azerbaijan on the travel map. Packed with practical, cultural, and culinary information as well as scores of maps it helped visitors and residents alike to make the most of this beautiful, varied, and much under-estimated country. Caspian Business News praised the book as being in the "usual travel guide format but with an added feel for the country based on in-depth research". This expanded, thoroughly-updated third edition includes ever wilder excursions into the mystical mountains and reveals quaint old Pensar mosques, little-known 6th century church ruins, more bubbling mud volcanoes, and bizarre natural flares in the land where even water catches fire (at Archivan and Bärdä). Visitors can uncover a field full of rusting Soviet-era tanks and armored vehicles near Puta, take idyllic Caucasian hikes from the timeless village of Xinaliq, and explore 4WD routes to remote Allar and secret Sim. There are even more off-beat curiosities pinpointed such as the Perigala "fairy castle", the "hand tree" in Göychay, a cowpie pyramid near Agdash, and a grand disemboweled Lenin statue at Yevlax. Also featured in this fully revised third edition are:

Dieser umfassende Reiseführer wendet sich in erster Linie an aktiv Reisende, die das Land auf eigene Faust kennen lernen wollen, egal ob als Bergsteiger, Kajakfahrer, Off-Roader, Mountainbiker, Motorrad- oder Autofahrer, Tramper oder Bus-/Bahnreisender. Er bietet aber auch unternehmungslustigen Pauschalurlaubern mehr als die übliche Aufzählung von Sehenswürdigkeiten. Das Buch soll Wissen über das Land, seine Menschen und seine vielfältigen Probleme vermitteln und damit optimal auf das, was die Reisenden unterwegs erwartet, vorbereiten. - Sorgfältige Beschreibung aller sehenswerten Orte und Landschaften und detaillierte Routenbeschreibungen, auch abseits der Teerstraßen (mit GPS-Koordinaten). - Ausführliche Beschreibung aller wichtigen touristischen Städte mit unzähligen Adressen vom Hotel bis zum Notfall. - Umfassende Erläuterung von Geschichte, Kultur und Gegenwart Marokkos. - Unterkunftshinweise für jeden Geldbeutel: vom Luxushotel bis zur Jugendherberge. - Unterwegs in Marokko: Informationen zu allen Verkehrsmitteln. - Sportkapitel: Rad fahren, Wildwasser, Trekking, Bergsteigen, Ski fahren, Gleitschirmfliegen, Wassersport. - Tipps für das Zurechtkommen im mitunter "nervigen" Marokko. - Zahlreiche Exkurse mit Hintergrundinformationen. - Glossar und Sprachhilfe Deutsch-Französisch-Arabisch.
