Taking to the Road: Motorcycling in New Zealand
By Rhys Jones

`All riders know that exquisite feeling of freedom and independence on the road.' And Rhys Jones, after more than 40 years of involvement with motorcycles, knows better than most.

Recalling the 1970s with nostalgia, he traces the development of road and race bikes in New Zealand. In this book, he has also gathered together a remarkable collection of photographs to capture some of the characters that have influenced motorcycling in New Zealand. He features notable bikes from each period and lists the best motorcycles of the last century.

Rhys Jones is editor of Motorcycle Trader and News based in Auckland. He has had a 30-year career in film and television, as producer, presenter and journalist. He is passionate about motorcycles.
