RICHARD HAMMOND A Short History of the Motorcycle
A celebration of the magic of motorbikes by former Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond. It’s cold, wet and dangerous, so why do we do it? Richard Hammond’s A Short History of the Motorcycle attempts to explain what it is about bikes and biking that calls to some people, leaving them powerless to resist. Wittily written and lavishly illustrated, Hammond charts the history of the bike from its origins as a cheap and modest means of transport for the masses to its modern incarnations: a terrifying symbol of rebellion and menace, a high-tech racing machine and the rich kid’s plaything. Richard Hammond is internationally famous for co-presenting Top Gear with Jeremy Clarkson and James May from 2002 to 2015. In July 2015 it was announced that all three presenters had signed up to present a new motoring show on Amazon Prime.
