AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Caution: Contains incidents of insane motorcycle antics, drug use and swearing.

'In this fast, furious book, Boris Mihailovic shares his wild stories of motorcycling, mateship and frequent, two-wheel-related mayhem. Boris has had a life-long obsession with motorbikes and in this collection of yarns he shares pivotal moments in his riding life, from his first XJ650 Yamaha and the crazy, wild years of learning to ride faster and faster to finding friends with a similar passion who all look like outlaws.

'In At the Altar of the Road Gods Boris reveals the consequences of high-sides, tank-slappers, angry police and pilgrimages to Bathurst and Phillip Island, and explains how motorbike riding was the rite of passage into manhood he'd been searching for.

'Be warned: this is a book that may cause laughter, sleeplessness and the desire to buy a Lucifer-black Katana.' (Publication summary)
