Book Description

Jan. 1 2005
Give up the day job, buy an old bike and ride off into the sunset - a dream for most but reality for the author as he takes on the Landmark Challenge set by the Triumph Owners Club. But first build the bike, make peace with the family, then just go - meeting life head on. Often hilarious, always interesting, this is a book which brings home the joys of classic motorcycling as Daisy, a 1948 Triumph Speed Twin puts in some 5,000 miles to win the Challenge - in spite of mechanical mayhem, fire, and just about everything else that can go wrong with an old bike. The author, armed with little more than a compass from a Christmas cracker, a dysfunctional map and a random selection of the wrong tools sets out to challenge life together with his young family. Great fun, just what classic motorcycling is all about and makes you itch to join him on the road! ""Strangely addictive...a must-have for any classic bike enthusiasts" Daily Express

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for the Brit bike fan. Nov. 16 2012
By Bramstedt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A middle aged man checks out of the corporate world and into the challenging world of old English motorcycle ownership. Along the way, he finds mental sanity and improves his relationship with his children. As a fan of old British motorcycles, Mr. Ham does a fantastic job of detailing the fun and heartbreak of trying to go further than Starbucks on classical English bikes. If you like motorcycles, it is a great book for you. If you are questioning your position in the hectic business world, it is a great book for you. If you have a family, it is a great book for you. Highly recommend.
