Dave’s not here Man.
Dave’s not here, he’s in the USA living the dream.
After spending 8 weeks in 85 taking in the MX scene in California, Dave Hammond decided to head back to the USA in 1987 for another Motocross adventure.
He persevered for five years and this is his story as told through his letters that he sent to me.
These stories have been kept secret for years as he was always telling me… “Don’t tell anyone”
Five years of riding, crashes, adventures, crashes, traveling, crashes, bikes, crashes, girls, crashes, jobs, crashes, not to mention some bullshitting and the occasional crash.
It does get a bit tedious with his incessant “Geoff, you’ve got to come over here” comments, but you will find some interesting & fun stories in here, even if they are about Dave and I.
Print run now in progress and if all goes well will be available from my trade stand at HBBB this Easter.
After Easter they will be available for posting.
$30.00 each plus postage
