Miles Davis, author and motorcyclist, self-published his travelogue Motorcycle Yoga. He gave me a signed copy of it last night at the Wild Writing Women literary salon, and says I encouraged him to go the self-publishing route. (I self-published my Cycling the French Riviera guidebook in 1995, and the Wild Writing Women self-published Stories of World Travel in 2002, both with good results.) The book is a description of Mile’s spiritual and physical journey in India on a Royal Enfield Bullet. I had a peek of the manuscript last year, and am happy to say that the finished product is absolutely beautiful. Now he just has to sell it, he tells me…not an easy task, I know. He’s already got it listed in the Whitehorse Press, a well-known clearinghouse for motorcycle books. That’s a great start. Now, to find a distributor. Good luck, Miles! Here’s a little more about the book: Miles Davis arrived in India early in the 70’s eager to learn about its culture, philosophy, religion and little-known sites of pilgrimage. Living as a celibate monk for several years, he traveled thousands of miles on buses and trains visiting remote areas and ancient temples. After twelve years of monastic life, he married Raagini, an Indian doctor. A few years later Raagini gave him an Indian-built 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet as a birthday present. He set out once again to look at India anew, this time on two wheels. Read the full description.
