Publisher's Summary

Whether you're into dirt bikes, road bikes, ride a Yamaha, scooter or Laverda, if you've ever experienced the primal rush of riding a motor bike, the pain of crashing, the suffering of healing and the epiphanies of speed, then this book is for you.
My Mother Warned Me About Blokes Like Me is about friendship, treachery, girls in tight pants, and motorcycles that have been possessed by Satan.
It’s about brotherhood, camaraderie, drugs, alcohol, and being hounded by the police for daring to combine them all at once. It’s about racing 1000 kilometres through the night for money and thrills. It’s about massive amputations, bovine stupidity, maniacal genius and the wisdom of the old.
It’s about chance and fate and suffering, being two people at once and being handcuffed in a Melbourne gutter. It’s about being cold and crazy and hopeful and irredeemably lost. It’s about impossible highs and soul-crushing lows, about demons and brothers and dirt and danger, and houses with iron bars instead of glass in their windows. Essentially it’s about Boris Mihailovic’s life. With motorcycles.

Great Story and Humor

Would you listen to My Mother Warned Me About Blokes Like Me again? Why?

Yes. I've listened to it a couple of times and it still makes me laugh and dream of the open road and adventures yet to come.

What does Dave Ferguson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accent definitely lends to the reading.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A life on 2 wheels: Adventure, misadventure, and humor.

Good refreshing read

Highly amusing listen. Opens your eyes to the 70's and 80's motorcyclist! Well worth a read if you want something different.
