review Red Tape and White KnucklesThis s the second one of Lois Pryce s adventures I ve devoured I almost gave up on this one a couple of times but not through any fault of the author It was because of the adventure tself Africa was hostile to Lois and t s not a continent I would have any Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now interestn conuering on two wheels It s not a challenge I would undertake but that s part of the thrill of reading her books You don t have to lift a foot off the pedal and she takes you along with terrific story telling However there was one train ride Guns of Arizona: A Land Where Legends Are Made in particular that I read with my heart lodgedn my throat I had to keep reminding myself that there was OF THE STORY TO TELL SO the story to tell so obviously survived t even though t looked a little grim at times Lois Pryce would be the u An amazing adventure I enjoy Lois style but I wish

Have To Constantly Remind Me That Sheto constantly Remind Me That She A Woman Riding A Motorbike me that she was a woman riding a motorbike through Africa I got that from the blurb It s why I got the book So get on with the story and tell me about Africa The writing was also terrible and predictable which didn t help the story A lightweight account of a pale faced red haired Brit who naively rides her motorbike across Africa A very gutsy effort but with little to say of much worth Lois needs to check her ego and her motivations Gutsy Lois taking on Africa on her Serow on steroids or a Yamaha XT 220 with a sheepskin seat cover and lowered suspension and knobbly tyres Lois crosses the Sahara boards a train full of heavily armed soldiers and who makes the Angolan border with Namibia with minutes to spare before her visa runs out In Angola she has to camp by the side of the road as further off the road there s the danger of land mines Having reached Namibia she screeches to a halt having just observed a stop sign having become unused to them since they were non existent n the countries preceding Namibia Having reached Cape Town she s offered useful motorcycling advice like don t use the clutch when the engine s hot having just completed a trip from Tunisia to South AfricaWell done Lois great book and great read More like Red Hair White Privilege Had a hard time choking down the author s catty remarks about other women her blatant prejudice and her n case you forgot I m a woman Riding Alone Through Africa script I picked up this book because I wanted to hear about the motorcycling You know because Moving into Meditation: A 12-Week Mindfulness Program for Yoga Practitioners it s a book about a motorcycle trip Besides hearing that she droppedt a handful of times there was nothing of The Night Before Baseball at the Park by the Bay interest for motorcyclists to get.
