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.

Not what I expected

I enjoyed this book it wasn’t what I expected but it was still entertaining.
It wasn’t what I thought it was more about the trill of riding motorcycles.
I thought it was going to be about motorcycle MCs

Reminiscent of my misspent youth.

loved this as it was so similar to so much of my life as well.
you meet some of the greatest most unorthodox and funniest people when you learn the pure joy riding motorbikes can give you.
Well written and full of funny tales. Well worth the time to listen too.

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.
