Learning about bikes late in life, David Royle pens his story from beginner to cross country biker

“Let’s face it, in this day and age with all its electronic, technological wizardry, riding a motorcycle is one of the few pleasures left in life.” This is the belief of avid motorcycle enthusiast and author David Royle. In his new book, “Now I Can Call Myself A Biker” (published by AuthorHouse) Royle outlines his early experiences on a motorcycle, taking readers through the various stages of learning how he mastered it to passing his test, and even documents his bike journey across America.

It wasn’t until the age of 47 that Royle decided to get into biking. Because he started late in life, he thought he missed out on all the experiences he could have gained in his younger years. “Once I had passed my test, I thought what could be the quickest way to get that experience?” asked Royle. “Riding Route 66 of course!”

With only 200 miles to do today, it took plenty of time, what with our frequent stops to avoid the worst of the rains. We would pull over and stop when it got as bad as ‘stair rods’. This gave us a chance to wring out our gloves and grab a coffee to warm up again. The roads were slippery as well, as I found out to my cost.

“I believe that there are many people out there who want to do what I have and they might think they’re too old, but this will inspire them to maybe just have a go,” says Royle.
