Bob Tyson captured the essence of the early days of motorcycle history. The writing was easy to read and interesting. I really enjoy the journey that this book took me on back to the wonderful days of early motorcycling. I have read a number of books on motorcycling including the books from the Davidsons family and this book is up there with the best. Thanks Again Bob for the wonderful adventure.
