Sam Manicom

A couple of evenings ago, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts,  Adventure Rider Radio RAW, and the hosts are given the opportunity to plug some product or event at the end of the show. Sam Manicom mentioned that he was going to be speaking at BMW Motorcycles of Western Oregon on Friday, May 19th. I've listened to three of his books and thoroughly enjoyed them all. The audiobooks are made even better with him as the reader. Since I am planning to be in Oregon on that date, I jumped onto the website and nabbed a ticket to the event ($15). The website for the event is off of the sam-manicom.com site. I think I was originally attracted to the books due to his bike. A BMW R80GS Airhead.

  1. And here I've never heard of him. We will be en route Anacortes to go camping with the siblings that day and can't even go. Doh.

    1. I'm not sure where I first heard about him but I really enjoyed the hearing of his adventures. Africa, Australia, Asia, South/Central America... And he seems to be very humble especially with respect to his lack of experience...

  2. Thanks for the tip on his audiobooks. That would make for great listening on our Trip! Glad you can make his presentation.

    1. There is a 4th book out about but it's not available as an audiobook yet. These days, that's my favorite format.
