I am selling my self published memoir , Going the Wrong Way. The book is about growing up in Belfast in the 70s and traveling round the world on a Moto Guzzi.

Some reviews on Amazon.

What a read, I simply couldn't put it down. This deserves to become a motorcycle touring classic, it has everything. Riding through some of the most volatile countries in the world at the time ( early 80's) no Internet, on a shoestring budget, riding a Moto Guzzi Le Mans on roads that a dedicated modern trial bike would struggle on. No fancy kit, or sat nav, or a support vehicle coming behind , this was true adventure biking that simply couldn't be done today. Buy it.

Just finished your book - very enjoyable read. Your ingenuity & ability to adapt to the numerous heart stopping events amazed me. As you say, we are cocooned today on m/cycle trips (or any trip) with GPS, hotels and itinerary all laid out...I hope you have another adventure planned on the Guzzi.

Five stars from me. A book I struggled to put down. Never came across a chapter that didn't leave me wanting to read more. Written in a no fuss, bare bones, easy to understand, mere mortal way. I wish every book that looks slightly interesting had the same page turning capability as this. Huge thanks to Chris for sharing this experience. It just makes me want to travel and see the world.... But I'm afraid I'd have be a snow flake and plan most things. Best book I've read in a long time, and in fact, I think I'll read it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars An adventure to read

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 August 2020

Couldn't put this one down. It was an adventure to read. Proof that touring on a motorcycle is a state of mind, and the physical aspects can be overcome if the will is there. Also very interesting to read Chris's background in Belfast, which put into context his journey. A bit like Ted Simon's book 'Jupiters Travels, it was undertaken before mass communication, therefore a real adventure travel story, where Chris had to improvise and survive along the way (understatement there). Overall I would highly recommend this book.
