Piet Boonstra's Blogspot

Thanks for visiting!

    I recently uploaded the complete contents of my newest book to this blog. It is a re-edited version of  two of my previously published books, ("Motorcycling Stories from the Northwest Territories to the Yucatan Peninsula" and "Keep Going - The Pleasure and Pain of Perseverance"). I have included more photos this time, and I have entitled the book, "Adventure Touring". The chapters can be found easily by looking in the Labels Index in the right-hand column of this blog. There are 19 numbered chapters beginning with "01 Adv Touring - Introduction". Even though the chapters are all numbered 1 to 19, there is a note and a link at the end of each chapter identifying the next chapter.

 There are also more than 1600 photos posted in this blog from 66 years of motorcycling since I bought my first Harley in 1947. The photos are from many years of enduro competition and many years of adventure touring, including eight trips to Alaska over various routes, several back-road tours around the US, one each to Newfoundland and Labrador, and two deep into Mexico - one of which was to visit the Mayan ruins in the Yucatan Peninsula and the other was to visit the foot of Copper Canyon in the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains of western Mexico with a Gold Wing! I traveled alone on most of my trips.

    I've also posted photos of my competing in seven decades – primarily in enduros, in which I won trophies in every decade but the first when I competed with my big Harley 74 "Knucklehead" a few times in local events during the late 1940s. Now I intend to spend more time writing about it and inspiring others to ride – and to keep riding as long as possible. A brief bio with highlights of my motorcycling career is included in this blog, as well as in "Adventure Touring". An index of the posts, including the bio and the photos, can be found in the right-hand column of this blog.

If anyone is interested in purchasing one or more of my books, you can click on the appropriate advertising link in this blog, or if you would rather have a signed copy, please contact me via email at and I will gladly sell the book or books to you for the list price with free shipping.

Enjoy the Ride!
