Part one of the book was quite good; an interesting ride from Delhi to Belfast on a Royal Enfield that was manufactured in India.

Only recommended if you stop after part one.

Non-fiction, but definitely humorous. Geoff Hill is a newspaper humorist in the UK, and his experience comes through Way to Go.

Geoff Hill writes with wonderful humour, insight, and sharp observation. This is an easy read and, just like the author's motorcycle journeys, the book is over too soon.
