More About the Author
The author's favorite reading material is an esoteric combination of Playboy Magazine, coffee-table-sized books of car and motorcycle history, small automotive books chocked with facts and figures, political commentary books, Anne Rice novels, psychosocial dating manuals, and fictional stories of mysteries and werewolves.
The author's favorite authors are Don Martin (his Fester & Karbunkle series), Anne Rice, Kurt Vonnegut, Jean Shepherd, Peter Egan, Al Franken, Al Past, Joe Bageant, P. J. O'Rourke, Robert Rimmer, Paul Krugman, Thomas Frank, Eric Schlosser, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, D. H. Schleicher, Paul Stiles, and Barbara Ehrenreich.
Who is Floyd M. Orr? He is absolutely unknown and unfamous, but you can think of him as a mixture of Bill Hicks, Bill Maher, Bill Engvall, George Carlin, Lewis Black, Denis Leary, Al Franken, Jon Stewart, Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Charlie Rose, Peter Fonda, Forrest Gump, Frank Burns, and Charles Emerson Winchester III. But he's not as smart or talented as any of those guys.

It's a good reference book with items I never considered about motorcycles in general and the Asian bike makers in particular.
The many interesting period stories of people and machinery make this a very readable book.
I have owned and still own many of the motorcycles included in this book, not to mention the bikes I wanted to own or just admired.
I still like real books with real paper and ink but being black and white this may work fine as an ebook.
This fat tome was well worth the money to this aging bike jockey who now spends more time reading and wrenching than burning fossil fuel wearing out tires.
Author injects just the right amount of his own opinions as well as a few from other experts, to keep the book an interesting read as well as a reference guide. As an avid collector of Motorcycles, I've found this book to be much more accurate than most.
Commendable work, Mr. Orr
