Mick Doohan is the greatest motorcycle racer of modern times--some would say ever. The teak-tough Aussie has wrestled his 200mph Honda to more than 50 grand prix wins and five consecutive 500cc World Championships after fighting back from a near-crippling accident in 1992.  His fearsome broadside riding style has captivated millions of fans worldwide and made him the sport's biggest-ever earner.

Mick Walker's British Racing Motorcycles
by Mick Walker
It's every bit a typical Mick Walker book: a very readable set of stories of thirteen chapters, covering the AJS 7R to the Velocette Thruxton, including along the way, the BSA 'Goldie', the JPS Nortons, the Triumph GP and lots of others. There's colour strategically placed through the book and lots of cross-section drawings, to say nothing of the lots of pictures in black and white. One thing that appealed to me was the clean design and easy-to-read layout. This is one well worth putting on to your early Christmas list and there are more titles to come in the same series.
