Twisting Throttle Australia by Mike Hyde

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The witty tale of a real life mid-life crisis which took an ordinary Kiwi bloke around Australia on a motorbike, to fulfil his life-long Easy Rider inspired dreams of his long-lost youth. The result is a very dry look at the Big Dry Country told with self-deprecating wit by a first time author. A large market has been established for blokes on bikes doing things to recapture their long lost youth. Mike's endearing and funny tale is the ordinary bloke doing it on the modest bike and smell of an oily rag with some wonderfully seat of the pants escapades along the way. A naturally funny man, Mike pokes fun at himself and Aussies in an equally merciless way, providing a travel book with a real heart and a real difference. Definitely a book for every middle-aged man you know - and their wives!
