    I enjoyed his books when I read them some years ago.
    Back in 2016 I attended one of his talks in Arizona when I was travelling the Americas.
    Ended up going to dinner with him at Al Jesse’s house, he of Jesse Pannier fame, and had a very enjoyable evening.
    He was very generous with his advice and encouragement.
    Sitting in our sidecar was a first for home too…although he was happy staying stationary.

    Good interesting bloke.

    I got his most recent book for Xmas (a compilation of stories from other authors) - again, another good read.

    I chatted with him at the NEC bike show a few years ago and he seemed to be a really nice guy, but I'm not keen on his writing style if I'm honest

    I think Chapter five was by far the best.

    Written by a devilishly handom, whitty and marvelous chap who embarked on a seven month adventure taking his DRZ400 from the Wirral in the U.K to Capetown in South Africa.

    Did I mention how wonderful he is. Truly fabulous !!



    Anyone who hasn't yet had the pleasure, should do themselves a favour

    I had the pleasure of meeting the fella at a camping rally a few years back ,, a quiet self deprecating nice chap was my impression , not at all boastful of his exploits/ travels .
    Normal ,in an odd sort of way

    Met him a few times, he’s a gentleman and a gentle man.
    I’ve read all his books and his writing skills have improved with each one so may I suggest you read them in order as I did.
