Anyone who has found Dave Gurman’s recent offerings in The Rider’s Digest amusing, interesting, informative, or just plain infuriating, is guaranteed to find this collection of his early contributions exactly the same – only more so. Whether he is joking about the diabolical danger of distractions and the bad old mad old days of despatch riding; discussing the serious moral issues involved when you contemplate allowing a child on a motorcycle; presenting his own bastardised version of an ancient eastern philosophy; or proffering his take on the September 11th attacks (published a fortnight after the event), Dave has never been short of an opinion, nor the ability to express it in an engaging and entertaining manner.
