Embark on a rollickingly funny, downright dangerous and often unhinged quest that starts on an environmentally friendly motorcycle built on a shoestring budget by students, and ends with a plan to break the land speed record for a biofuel-powered motorcycle.

Paul Carter was born in England in 1969. His father's military career had the family moving all over the world, relocating every few years. Paul has worked in the oil industry now for fifteen years, relocating every few years (old habits). Paul has lived, worked, gotten into trouble and been given a serious talking to in England, Scotland, Germany, France, Holland, Norway, Portugal, Tunisia, Australia, Nigeria, Russia, Singapore, Malaysia, Borneo, Columbia, Vietnam, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra, the Philippines, Korea, Japan, China, USA and Saudi Arabia. Today he lives in Perth with his wife, baby daughter and two motorbikes. But who knows where he'll be tomorrow ...Review:
I laughed so hard I cried - but there is also poignancy here... Carter captures the moment with pithy observations that achieve an almost transcendent lucidity at times, and is funny enough to frame. * Western Australian * Some people cure boredom by going shopping; Carter does it by taking a bio-diesel motorbike around Australia... don't buy this book if you're offended by seriously bad language: we're talking direct quotes from hardened oil riggers. * Sun Herald * There is so much more to his stories than simply getting from A to B. If Carter can have a crazy adventure on the way, he will. If he can make things difficult, he will without even trying. Add to this a few whiskies and a great bunch of mates, and you get the idea of what to expect from this trip... a fascinating story... what will Carter do next? * Bookseller and Publisher * When Carter eases off on the profanity and throttles up on the wit, he gets the chequered flag every time. The book is funny, entertaining and - for rev heads - informative. * Sunday Herald Sun *
