I can't think of anywhere I'd less like to be than in a car. When you're driving a car, you're not taking part, you're a spectator. You're in a can; if it's cold you turn up the heating, if you're hungry you have a wine gum. You might be looking at what's going on, but you're definitely not a part of it.
A Biker's Life is the dramatic, humorous and candid memoir of one of the most recognisable names in motorcycling.
Henry Cole's passion for motorbikes began when, at the age of eight, he was first introduced to a 'man cave'. His great-uncle Redbeard's corrugated iron shed was 'stuffed to the gills with old motorbikes' which Henry helped rebuild and ride. Since then, Henry's life can be charted through the bikes and journeys he has been on - from a stifling public-school education, via many years battling addiction, to the big-sky iconic routes Henry has ridden for over 20 series as presenter of numerous TV shows.
This audiobook reminds millions of motorcyclists why their bike gives them the freedom to be exactly who they want to be: to say 'I'm doing my thing'. When you ride a motorbike you become part of a worldwide community of kindred spirits - those of us who will not be pacified by driving a car but instead live for adventure, escape and the sheer thrill of the throttle.

What a Life!!!
Wow Henry Cole has lived a full life for sure!!!.
I already had the book and couldn't put it down... one of those books that you read and immediately you have finished want to read again. The Audio book is just brilliant, the enthusiasm and emotion of Henry's delivery can only be achieved by the author, by the person who has lived through the story being told. Nothing is held back, Henry tells it how it was and how it is. You don't have to be in to motorbikes to enjoy this, it is just a fantastic listen. I could listen to Henry all day. Like the book, as soon as I finished the audio version, I went right back to the beginning and started to listen again. I listen in the car (yeah I know... sorry Henry!) and it is just like having your mate sitting there with you! Love it... nice one Henry!
