Overland To Vietnam by Gordon May


An extraordinary journey from the UK to Vietnam on the most unlikely of motorcycles, a 1941 Matchless. The bike, a WWII veteran only recently repatriated from Burma, is restored and prepared for the expedition by its rider, Gordon May, and a team of friends.

Riding solo, Gordon heads across eastern Europe, the Caucasus and the Karakum Desert then over the Kunjerab Pass, the world’s highest international border crossing. Enduring ice, snow and tropical heat, he and his Matchless survive backbreaking terrain, petrol shortages, crazy traffic, a sandstorm of biblical proportions and a major earthquake.
