It’s about this crazy Argentinian who sets out to ride around the world on an 1100 GoldWing (!), with hardly any riding skills, and even less mechanical skills. He starts out carrying “everything” (up to and including full scuba gear!), but gets robbed of it all after a few days. The rest of us would have gone back home, but Scotto continues his journey with $53 or so in his pocket, no gear, but an impressive ability to charm his way to free meals, beds (with and without company) and gas money.

Scotto is a great story-teller, and I easily forgive him the spices I am sure he must have sprinkled over his stories. Some of you may remember a “teaser” in the 2005 edition of Cycle World Adventures magazine, where he more or less carried the GoldWing through the jungle in Guinea, West Africa.

It seems in real life he is not even capable of washing his own underwear. His wife does everything for him because he is too fat and lazy to do anything. When you get to know him as part of his infamous caravana fiasco you realize that the Emilio Scotto that he portraits on the book does not match the real person. In my opinion: Pure Fiction.
