Not quite what I'd hoped for...
on 15 August 2008
This was an easy read that flowed from page to page, although as a biker myself I found it wanting. It's been said before in these pages and is very true that the transition from Corsica to London was a great disappointment; was there really nothing interesting to write about on the journey back home from there Mike?!
Also Mike is obviously a very educated and learned man, so whilst I took his quotes from some of the great names in literature in good humour, I suspect others may have seen this as arrogant and conceited on his part.
If you are into bikes and biking in general, don't expect a great detailed narrative, but as a light heartened and alternative read on the subject of men & the mid-life crisis, this a good read; took me just three days on the commute to finish it!
