Summary

From the Canadian Rockies to the Panamanian Jungle, Motorcycle Therapy rumbles with comic adventure as two men, fleeing failed relationships, test the limits of their motorcycles and their friendship. Join the horn-honking, signal-flashing, wheelie-popping pair as they endure painful bee stings, painful snakebites, and (when they talk to girls) painful humiliation.

Brilliant

What a throughly good listen, Jeremy's narration brings the story alive with the emotion of a big trip and funny one liners. A sheer pleasure.
I met Jeremy at a bike show and as promised downloaded his book, it was so good I did it one sitting, I'll give it a week and listen to it again just to make sure I never missed any details or one liners.

Light and fun exploits of some adventure riders.

Would you listen to Motorcycle Therapy again? Why?

Yes. It's fun and sometimes quite silly in is real-life account of two Canadians bumbling through Latin America.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Motorcycle Therapy?

There were several 'bust out laughing' moments.

Have you listened to any of Jeremy Kroeker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. I believe this is the only one.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end when he re-connected with his long-suffering riding partner.

Any additional comments?

It's worth a listen. It won't change your world, but it will entertain you.

Meh....

I was looking for something more interesting and was somewhat disappointed. I found the writing to be too "wordy" in parts, like the author was trying too hard. And the fact that the 2 travellers were constantly bickering took away from "the adventure" and made me realize that one really has to find a compatible travel partner to really enjoy a road trip.

I got the distinct feeling that the author didn't really enjoy the trip much and just wanted to get it over with like it was a chore, or maybe something to check off his "bucket list".

I feel bad for Trevor

I have listened to many many adventure motorcycle books and this one by far was the worst. It makes me want to throw away my motorcycle adventure plans and sell my bike Out of fear of dying of boredom. I am sure his trip was more of an adventure than this book alludes to. It was read as monotone and lifeless as possible. You can't stop listening with the hopes it must get better. Nope. Never does.
Sorry for the bad review but maybe it will help with your future documented trips.

Well that was interesting

While the author did a good job adding some excitement with his narration, the story was a bit lacking and in some ways unappealing.

As a motorcycle rider who has done a larger version of his same trip solo I could see what he was trying to portray, but only because I had ridden many of the same tracks.

For me it was the latent homophobia that lurked just below the surface in many parts of the book and the treatment of women as objects in his writing that kept pulling me from the story.

The humor and openness with which he talked about his flaws and mistakes was admirable but overshadowed by the sexism present.

A great listen with lots of laughs!

I bought this audio version right after I met the author who signed the paper copy I purchased from him at the Toronto Motorcycle Show. I listened to it on the drive home to Ottawa. Great adventure story. Thanks for sharing it.

A mediocre story about an exceptional journey. I plan to take on some serious motorcycle milage soon and was looking for some tips or inspiration, this story provided niether.
