Is That Thing Diesel? - Paul Carter

Is That Thing Diesel? - Paul Carter


One man, one bike and the first lap around Australia on used cooking oil

$14.95 $9.99

At forty years old, a successful writer, husband and father, no longer toiling on offshore drilling rigs, was Paul Carter happily nestled in the cotton wool of suburban life enjoying the fruits of his labour? Was he f**k!

With his manic life left far behind and the perfect opportunity to take it easy, what else would a middle-aged, bike-obsessed man want?

Yes, that's right, he'd want to be the first guy to ride around Australia on an unpowered experimental motorcycle that runs on used cooking oil, wouldn't he? Preferably without getting hit by a semi-trailer full of bridge parts. Is he out of his mind?

Quite possibly.

Embark on a rollicking, downright dangerous and often unhinged quest that starts on an environmentally friendly motorcycle built on a shoestring budget by students and ends with a plan to break the motorcycle land speed record for bio-fuel.

Carter is back to his old balls-to-the-wall style of writing, prepare to laugh out loud.
