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.

    "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.

    "Absolutely brilliant"

    This book is perfect for every bikie who is not too hung up on etiquette. I could not read this for more than 30 minutes at any time, because by then I was choking in my own tears of laughter. Especially the part about the brother with the Triumph.... All the while I was choking out: that's me, omg that is me! Just not a Brother but I am a girl and not a Triumph but a Shovelhead. I still got it as my secondary bike and it is a Shevo bow(Shovel with an Evo engine) And it still lets me down, 29 years down the track. Should indeed burn it. Or start writing books. Do yourself a favour. Buy this book. One of the best presents you could ever have given to yourself.

    "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.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story!
