The Longcut Across is a book about a boyhood dream. The dream of one day driving a motorcycle across America. After fermenting for years the idea eventually developed into a 12,500 km journey through dusty deserts, dark forests, and snowy mountains. Where there are literally bears on the road.
The Longcut Across is written in the rhythm of the road. In 240 pages, the reader rides along from Toronto to Vancouver via New York, the Appalachians, Elvis Presley, Texas, the Wild West, the Rocky Mountains, and the Red Woods of the Pacific Coast. The Longcut Across is also a practical book packed with travel information about attractions, culture, and riding a motorcycle in America.
