Description:

Mick Walker has written about most of the worldÆs classic marques and many of the sportÆs greatest riders, but the onset of a life-threatening illness persuaded him to pen this book through his own huge variety of experiences as a rider, dealer, importer, tuner, team boss and author. Despite being an intensely personal story, æThe Ride of My LifeÆ is a wide-ranging look at motorcycling that will resonate with every enthusiast.

For those who share MickÆs passion for the Italian marques of the last half century, the book is required reading, but there is much, too, about machines from elsewhere. Mick has also packed the pages with characters he has known personally, including some of the all-time greats; Barry Sheene, Mike Hailwood, Carl Fogarty, Fabio Taglioni, Alejandro de Tomaso and Derek Minter - whose relationship with Mick is recalled in the foreword.

Much more than just a memoir, Mick brings his vast experience to bear on motorcyclingÆs current fascination with its past, and offers his own note of hope for its future.
