Narrow Boat
Narrow Boat
by L. T. C. Rolt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.48

4.0 out of 5 stars A journey on Britain's canals with Tom Rolt., 24 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Narrow Boat (Paperback)
Tom Rolt has written a very descriptive book about his travels along the canals in the Midlands on his narrow boat " Cressy" during 1939, just as WW2 was about to start.
The reader feels that they are also on board going on the journey with him and his wife.
At the time the book was written the canals were being left to fall into disrepair, as they were not being used as much as they were for transporting goods by water.
It is because of people like him who saw what was happening to the canals and doing something about it to save them that we have the canals to use today.
A very good read about travelling on Britain's canals at the end of the 1930s.

Mike Hailwood: The Fan's Favourite
Mike Hailwood: The Fan's Favourite
by Mick Walker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Mike the Bike, a worthy world champion!, 19 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good book about Mike the Bike by Mick Walker.
Mike was lucky that his father Stan was a very rich motorcycle dealer who could fund his start in the sport.
It also helped that Stan had the contacts in the business to be able to source the bikes to go racing.
But, you cannot take it away from Mike he was definitely one hell of a talent when it came to racing motorcycles, which is why he was multiple world champion and TT winner.
Sadly, he was killed in a road accident while going to get takeaways for the family.
I read the book in an afternoon, just could not put it down!

Full Throttle: Robert Dunlop, Road Racing and Me
by Liam Beckett
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Throttle., 17 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Liam has written a very good book about his friendship with Robert Dunlop and the adventures they had during his time racing and his untimely early death at the NW200 in 2008.
He is a sorely missed motorcycle racing legend along with brother Joey.
I saw him racing at the IOMTT in 2003. He also raced at the Welsh circuit Aberdare Park a few times, which isn't mentioned in the book.
A recommended read for any fans of real road racing.
I read it in one sitting, just could not put it down 'til I finished it.
A really good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The tygers of pan tang, Roaring and rocking!!, 4 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good selection of their early songs, a very underrated band who should have been a much bigger force on the NWOBHM scene.
I have been to one of their gigs, and they had the pub rocking, well worth going to see them live!!

Motor City Mayhem [DVD] [2009] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Ted Nugent
Price: £9.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocking along with Uncle Ted Nugent., 18 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A cracking performance from the Wild Man of Rock, Uncle Ted Nugent.
He played a great selection of quite a few of his classic songs.
But, I don't agree with his views on hunting and shooting which was a feature of the end of the film.
He should have just kept to playing his music.
I would recommend this DVD for fans of Uncle Ted wherever in the world they maybe.
