On October 6, 1973, Ted Simon knew there was no going back. He loaded up his 500cc Triumph Tiger in the pouring rain and said good-bye to London.

Over four years he rode 64,000 miles round the world. Breakdowns, revolutions, war, a spell in prison, and a Californian commune were all part of his experience, which was colored variously by utter despair and unimaginable joy. He was treated as a spy, a god, a welcome stranger, and a curiosity. The extraordinary trip became a journey into his own soul, and for many others – including the bikers Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor – it is a pure inspiration. Rupert Degas, “the most versatile of narrators” (The Times), captures all the thrills and spills of Simon’s experience and the timeless charm.
