Defining exactly what a “motorcycle book” is isn’t as easy as it may sound, do you include only books that are about motorcycles? Or do you also include books that encompass the wider community of motorcyclists including adventures, philosophy, history and photography?

in a new series covering essential motorcycle books, I’ll be adding a Part 2 and 3 in the coming weeks, so stay tuned and clear some space on your bookshelves. If you have any suggestions please send them to me on Twitter here or Facebook here, I’d love to hear them and everything will be seriously considered.
I did a critique recently of “,” an interesting book in some ways, in need of better editing in others.

Of course I said yes.
