Publisher's Summary

This book gives a condensed view of motorcycling for new and returning riders. It's designed to wet your appetite for more while sticking to basic motorcycle information without overpowering you with details. The book is based on articles Walter F. Kern published on the Motorcycle Views website. The book starts out telling you what motorcycles are and showing you how you might learn to become an active, safe rider. Then 10 short motorcycle stories, written by actual motorcyclists, are presented. These stories allow you to observe some unusual things that happen to people who ride motorcycles. Between stories, some practical advice about motorcycles is given in the form of 10 motorcycle how-tos and 10 motorcycle tips that you will need to know to become a proficient rider.

Not What I Was Expecting

Where does Motorcycle Kick-Starts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

near the bottom

Has Motorcycle Kick-Starts turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not really. Just was looking for something different.

Have you listened to any of Kim Holmes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?

This is a how to book. I was thinking it would be stories but not the type that are presented. This is designed for people who are interested in learning how to ride a mototcycle. The stories are like journal entries of people who have taken rides on motorcycles. It is also a list of tips to help anyone get aclimated to riding.

Learn to Love Motorcycles!

What did you love best about Motorcycle Kick-Starts?

This audiobook is both informative and enjoyable. This audiobook provides listeners with practical advice on motorcycles (e.g. how to get a motorcycle permit, best practices for protecting yourself while driving a motorcycle, etc.) interspersed with entertaining stories from motorcycle enthusiasts (as recounted by the narrator).

This is a short and sweet audiobook that both entertains and informs!

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
