    There are three threads weaving through this book none of which, as is pointed out, has much to do with either eastern philosophy or with motorcycle maintenance The first is a straightforward narration by a man riding across the country with his young son and two friends a married couple This evocative travelogue is by far the most enjoyable aspect of the novel.The second element is a sort of mystery as that man struggles with his memory it s gradually revealed that he s on the road both t There are three threads weaving through this book none of which, as is pointed out, has much to do with either eastern philosophy or with motorcycle maintenance The first is a straightforward narration by a man riding across the country with his young son and two friends a married couple This evocative travelog...
