    hi everyone,

    Just about finished Michael Dunlop’s autobiography and was looking to buy mcpints and hutchys, are there any others anyone has read and can recommend? Or any biker books in general?

    Thanks

    Haha haven’t had a golf for 10 years now but for some reason the name has always stuck with me. Not even sure why I had 3, one after the other. They were all crap:D

    Spotted already. I thought it was the American spelling:D. I mean, they have already adulterated most of our language.

    Oh, and by the way @Lozzy , it's actually 'grammar'. Not that I'm critical of course!!:D:D

    My mother is fond of saying the Americans slaughtered the English language. She gets angry when she sees the word honor or color. Then again, she is from Glasgow, so everything gets her angry.

    "Ring of Fire" and also "That Near Death Thing" - both books by Rick Broadbent.

    I remember really enjoying them when I read them but I think they are from about 2009.

    I'd avoid Rossi - I didn't finish it. And Foggy was boring too.

    I can’t agree more Lozzy
    You have to caress your tractoorrr, keep it well lubed and feed it the right foods to get back a life time of hard work and devotion ;)
