Set in the late 70s and the following decade, ‘Adventures in Motorcycling’ is the story of his start on bikes and subsequent years as an urban motorcycle mercenary. It was an era when badly behaved messengers capitalised on London’s economic revival, squatting was easy, Thatcherism polarised the nation and rioting was a frequent response to it.

Despatch riding on everything from classic Brit twins to thundering Italian street racers, demented dirt missiles and nitrox-injected dinosaurs, his story includes a brush with Class War and regular spells in hospital.
Chris Scott’s sensible overlanding guides advise how it should be done; ‘Adventures in Motorcycling’ is not that kind of book. Also in paperback at adventuresinmotorcycling.com
