At the time of writing this book I’m fifty four years old and have ridden over three hundred thousand kilometres on motorbikes. I have ridden often on my own and many times in small and very large groups. I have organised rides that have taken us over New Zealand’s most technical roads and had over a hundred motorcyclists turn up from all backgrounds and experience levels. This book will not be “English grammar” correct but it will give you a taste for “Kiwi” humour, language and more importantly the joy and sheer exhilaration of riding on good old “Kiwi” back roads. Any person who has experienced the liberty and let’s face it, has the “balls” to ride a decent sized motorcycle at speed will instantly be at home reading this book. I love riding. I love a good twisty road and I am so pleased I found out the thrill and enjoyment of riding a powerful motorbike. There are not too many other activities that can take your mind off the cares of the world and have you concentrate totally on the task at hand and arrive at your destination, exhilarated, refreshed and enjoying the freedom of being on a bike on the open road. Riding is truly an awesome experience. To that end, I share that experience with you in this book.
Paul Fris is an avid writer with Predestined being his first Science fiction/Fantasy work.
He has contributed articles and training programs to varied organisations and written reviews on motorcycle test rides and life experience articles for several websites.
The loss of his sixteen year old son from Cystic Fibrosis some years ago and the more recent loss of his much loved wife who finally succumbed after a two year battle with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer, has given him rare insights into the areas of grief, loss and dealing with some of life's major issues. These deep valleys in his life have also given him a unique ability to discern the moods of others and to understand the intricacies of human nature.
A keen hunter, tramper and motorcylist along with a knowledge of electronics, electricity and computer systems enable him to write his material from a position of practical experience evident in his novel "Predestined" and his latest book "Confessions of a Kiwi Motorcyclist."
"Predestined" is a work that may echo mankind's future on this planet and "Confessions of a Kiwi Motorcyclist" is a light hearted look into riding in New Zealand.read more
