You can always rely on Mr Melling for a right ripping read, and he’s at his absolute best telling tall stories about old bikes
Rowena Hoseason, Editor – Real Classic magazine
At last, a book whose production values match Frank Melling’s superb and imaginative narrative about a life filled with bikes. Read and enjoy.
Pete Kelly, Editor – Old Bike Mart.
In the early days, when men were men and few understood motorcycles or why anyone would want to ride them, Frank Melling was deep in the primordial ooze that was its infancy. Many have heard of these times but few really know the inside stories. His experiences at the epicentre of motorcycle history and his lovely English way of telling stories will delight motorcyclists and those that don’t ride, too. His Ride of My Life tells it like it was and really is a page turner.

If it has two wheels and a motor, Frank Melling has ridden it and probably to its limit.
The context he provides for each motorcycle, the humour he imbues throughout these pages and the delicate ability he has to weave an absorbing tale make Ride of my Life a thoroughly enjoyable read for seasoned motorcyclists and non-riders alike.
