The Lonesome Lowdown Long-gone Outbound Scootertrash Blues by Mark Edmonds

This, Tiger's third book of motorcycle stories, is another collection of tales about roads, the rides, and the riders. It's about going it the long way around and taking the hard way out. It would be a damn shame if these stories were lost to history and censorship and political correctness and a lack of being told.
