My thinking exactly - having fond memories of Flash' stories posted to back in "the good old days" - I did not hesitate to buy 5 copies - whereof only one now resides on my own bookshelves.

Although having motorcycling as a common thread, the subjects and settings as well as the tones of the stories are extremely varied, resulting in a many-faceted view of a very interesting life on two and (every now and then) four (or even no) wheels. Anyone with the slightest interest in motorcycling will find lots of stuff to relate to, be awed by, and laugh at.

Hey - the cover photo alone is worth the asking price! My only complaint about the book is that there is absolutely no gratuitous sex. But then again, you can't have it all, I guess.
