The June issue of BIKE magazine carries a taster extract from a new book ( about a trip from Amsterdam to Tokyo on a 1975 V7 Guzzi ) - does’nt pull any punches , might appeal to you touring types…
Paul van Hooff (might be spelt wrong) - quite well-known on Facebook etc. Has his own website, although I can’t remember the name.
Tokyo was most recent trip, but has also been extensively round South America on the same bike.
Edit - website is http://guzzigalore.nl/

Really friendly chap with an appealing (to me) take on travel and life.
Just ordered it for my Kindle.
