About the Author

John Bryant became addicted to motorcycles at 15 after bolting an old motorised wheelchair engine to his push bike. Nearly half a century later he has owned them all: mopeds, scooters, dirt bikes, sports rockets, cruisers, and tourers. His two-wheeled adventures have led him into the volcanoes of NZ, across the prairies and deserts of USA, and around a lot of Oz. John started Australia’s first motorcycle wedding escort service by importing six the world’s biggest road bikes, dressing his riders in tux jackets, bow ties and white gauntlets. After surviving several wipeouts, he is now growing old disgracefully on two wheels.
