Best of Team Ruptured Buzzard - the Book
 
I just published my first book and offer it for sale here on ADV. These are the best of my ride reports - they will pale in comparison to many you can read on this forum for free. My effort was not intended to compete with the likes of reports from Borneo, Siberia and Ushuaia - there are reports on ADV with gravity stronger than the center of a Black Hole and more of "opus quality" than I have provided in my humble effort.

But, it's my book and they are some of my stories. Buying it and reading it are optional.

Humbly submitted -

The Best of Team Ruptured Buzzard Rally Raids (so far...)
A compendium of mayhem and folly through motorcycle ride reports and other shenanigans

Authored by David J. Jankowsky
Designed by Dorothy A. Jankowsky

The best dual-sport and off-road motorcycle adventure riding reports from Team Ruptured Buzzard include the chronicles of Stovebolt and his friends as they rally across dusty tracks in the desert and mountains, caught up in the slipstreams of adventure from Baja, Nevada, Idaho and Montana. Gritty and down to earth, the pages unfold one after another, inviting readers to pause in reflection around a campfire under starry skies and then hang on for dear life while racing across a desert floor on the outskirts of Area 51 as fighter jets patrol overhead. While not a guidebook, it will entertain and perhaps inspire readers to get out there and track down dreams of their own; sucking marrow from the bones along the way. And, to Never Give Up!

About the author:
A sixth-grade English teacher conferred an award for Excellence in Composition to David Jankowsky when he was still in the fifth-grade. A love of language as well as off-road motorcycling led David to publishing adventures on websites since 2003, and he's been at both writing and riding for over 40 years. A short motocross career ended in tears in 1975, but his spirit of adventure is undiminished. A skier, mountaineer, rock climber and competitive combat shooter - Dave has managed to fill in an adventure resume to his hearts' content while carving out a living in the mountain states for over twenty five years. A dose of Catholic schooling as well as an early career track in emergency services and "all things 911"gave the author early starts to forming the sides of a values based moral crucible, and forge the needle on his compass. Still, the author drinks from a rogue's well and he makes his home in the Tetons where his adventure journeys are either taking place or being conceived; often times while ensconced in a remote cabin that lies at the crossroads of many a laid GPS track between Canada and Mexico. Find him with his wife of over twenty five years, running with his dogs in the hills.

This is a great read! A very well done collection of ride reports, pictures and humorous writing.

Looks like a good read Stovey. ADV discount? :D

Stovebolt 10-31-2012 09:37 PM

Hiya Joe!
 
Hey Joe,

Many thanks Sir!

It's a good read for some, they say...:freaky

This is something I don't envision offering at a discount - sorry! What would one $dollar off do to make ADVRiders feel more respected by me? I respect all you guys already, and appreciate every supportive purchase or just encouraging commentary. That's about where it lies with something like this - good or bad.

As mentioned elsewhere too, this isn't "Shakespeare" and isn't everybody's cup of tea. It's what it is. And as author, I sure won't "push" my material. Just wanted to post it.

But, I will buy you a beer someday. Ask Charlie, I know how to find the Ozarks. In the dark...

Stovey, what an excellent read that you have penned. I felt the need to share your humor with my riding companions so I ordered a few copies for Christmas gifts.

Ride safe... :clap

Stovebolt 10-31-2012 10:29 PM

Thanks Tracy!

You honor me, Good Sir!

See you on the Mexican border in a couple of months my friend....

Rally on,

Stovey

Stovebolt 11-01-2012 07:05 AM

Joe,

You had me going there.... I'm easy to bait. Sheesh.

Better hurry before they run out of ink and stuff....

Thanks!

All the best to you, and sorry I missed you when I was at Charlie and Martha's place. Next time will make more time and use it riding with you guys. Back roads deluxe in your AO!

You can post book reviews...
 
...either here, or on Amazon.com, or both - if you wanna.

Ordering direct from the publisher is the best way for the author though.

All the best,
