A Kindred Spirit and an Inspiration - Gary France
JG and I recently met up with Gary France for lunch at the Ace Cafe (http://www.ace-cafe-london.com). There is no doubt Gary has been a huge inspiration to JG and I in amongst many other influential books, films and DVD's we have read and watched over the years about motorcycle travel.
In 2013 Gary published his book 'France In America' - His book covers the wonderful and extraordinary story of his 21,000-mile journey to explore the hidden corners of 27 American states on the back of his Harley Davidson. It has many breath-taking photographs and is beautifully written which such descriptive writing it will transport you immediately to the many hidden gems and natural beauty that America has to offer.
Check it out, it's a wonderful read and in my opinion worth every penny - Here is Gary's website:
Or indeed order it from Amazon:
Gary was incredibly generous with his time and patiently answered all the questions 'The Blighty-Boys' could throw at him about the fun and challenges of riding a Harley across America - we shall forever be grateful for his wise words, and indeed hope to catch up with Gary in Seattle for a beer during the tour.
