65 YEARS IN THE MAKING!
‘Along for the Rideis the autobiography of Old
Bike Australasia editor Jim Scaysbrook. Subtitled People, places,
motorbike races, the 268-page hardcover book is a trip down memory lane,
beginning with Jims early life growing up in the southern suburbs of Sydney.
His father Charlie was a very successful scrambles and trials rider, and
both Jim and his younger brother Peter began competing at an early age,
initially at Sydneys Moorebank scrambles track.
In a racing career that has so-far encompassed 49 years, Jim has competed
in virtually every form of motorcycling competition, including three times
at the Isle of Man TT, and had a spell in Formula Ford open wheeler cars.
He spent 25 years as a writer and creative director in the dog-eat-dog
advertising industry, where he worked for many of the top agencies. Jim
has written ten previous books, eight of them on motorcycling, and in 2006
founded Old Bike Australasia magazine, which has grown to
become the biggest classic motorcycling magazine in the Southern Hemisphere.
Along for the Ride contains hundreds of photographs, many
of which have never been published before.
Along for the Ride was many years in the making – the
toughest assignment Jim has ever undertaken, but also the most rewarding.
Its a collection of memories covering 65 years, full of larger than life
characters, travel tales and an entertaining snapshot of Australian life.
