New books from WhiteHorse Press

A couple new books from the fine folks at WhiteHorse Press that might interest you if you're planning a trip to Colorado bonus if you're going to buy a vintage motorcycle to do the trip on!

The Complete Guide to Motorcycling Colorado:


There are other places in the world where motorcycle enthusiasts can ride into rarified air at timberline past snow-capped peaks, or deep into rock-filled desert canyons, or along a big river in a fertile glacial valley, or across open plains and rangeland to the far horizon. That you can do all of this in one day, if not in a morning, is Colorado’s special allure.

The first truly comprehensive book for this motorcycling paradise contains colorful in-depth descriptions of 172 different rides that can be combined in a variety of ways to create the best trips for all riding styles and interests. Though the emphasis throughout the book is on the ride itself, either on-road or off, historical background is given for the many ghost towns, abandoned mines, railroads, and historic sites that are inevitably encountered along the way.

Each ride is mapped individually, with regional maps showing how the rides can be combined to form journeys from half a day to several days in length. The many color photos introduce you to the incredible variety of terrain found in Colorado and show why riding here is on almost every motorcyclist’s must-do list. An interesting feature of the book is its use of historical photos, placed next to present-day shots of the same location, which show how much (or how little) has changed in the intervening years.

Any motorcyclist who enjoys the ride as much or more than the destination will be drawn to Colorado. Riders who are lucky enough to live in the Colorado area, as well as those visiting from afar, will find this book a unique and indispensable resource.


The Comprehensive Vintage Motorcycle Price Guide - 2011/2012 Edition


The vintage motorcycle market is alive and vibrant, with more and more enthusiasts buying and selling vintage bikes—some for investment and some for pure enjoyment. This annual Guide includes comprehensive data for dozens of brands from the U.S. and around the world, from Ace to Zundapp. It covers all models for the years 1901 through 1996.

Designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, the Guide opens with an overview of which bikes are hot and which are not, with commentary by vintage motorcycle experts on why prices are changing as they are. It also includes a guide to show how each price grade is defined and how to recognize which grade a particular bike belongs in. Prices are derived from actual sales between knowledgeable enthusiasts and are given for six quality grades, ranging from rat-bike to like-new.

Unlike price guides used by insurance companies to establish motorcycle values, this Guide is based on actual purchase prices tallied from recent auctions and major motorcycle exchange meets.

Printed in a handy pocket-size, this is the perfect companion to have with you at the next motorcycle auction or when you find that rare specimen in the farmer’s barn. Just one insight gained from this price guide on your next sale or purchase will earn back many times the book’s cost.
