Max the Motorcycle - new children's book

My wife has just completed a children's book. It is loosely based on the purchase and restoration of our '66 R60 /2. The book is called Max the Motorcycle. It's about how Max the Motorcycle first comes to the USA and is ridden by his first owner. After a time, he is put into a barn for storage. Later discovered and ridden again. It's Jen's first publication. She used a local artist for the illustrations. She has had a lot of fun with the project. She may even write a sequel.

It is available for purchase in [URL=""]hardcover[/URL] or [URL=""]paperback[/URL] at [URL=""][/URL]. Amazon also has it [URL=""]here[/URL].

Some of the illustrations...

And the bike that started the whole story...

It sounds like the kind of book Scott Pruett the race car driver wrote 10 or 12 years ago that we bought for our grandsons. I guess I'll buy yours now since there are always kids running around the house.

Ride far enough today so you can't come home untill tomorrow.
