    I met this bloke a few years ago when he was gearing up for a trip around Oz on a bio-fuel/food scrap powered motorcycle which was developed by some Uni in Sth Australia. He was creating a doco based on his travels..... Always wondered how he went

    Genuinely nice bloke
    Rest in Peace

        He was recently on a 4 or so episode Doco series about Australia on Nat Geo / Discovery (one of them...), I think.
        Cant remember the name of it. Living life on the edge, or something like that from memory.

        I know it was TV, but he seemed a pretty likeable character. Read his books too...

          The book about the bio fuel bike is out. I just finished reading it....it's great. Just like Don't Tell Mum was.

          I'm in for this.

              Yeah... He was one of them.
              3 people were hosting different parts, 2 blokes and 1 woman.

              I am pretty sure he was one of them anyways. 4 or 6 part series about different places / history of Australia.
              Not a bad series... Some pretty interesting stuff.

              His first book was pretty good... Didnt think the second one was on the same level though, wasnt quite as good.

                  Yeah, read his book on the bio fuel lap of Aus. Titles Is that thing Diesel?

                  Was a good read. He's quite comical and makes the story interesting.

                      I read and enjoyed his first book, this thread prompted me to look for it on the bookshelf to re-read it and I can't find it.

                      I seem to recall lending it to someone but cant remember who.
                      It's better to be thought stupid than open your mouth and remove all doubt

                      Pure speed in sixth gear on a 5,000 foot straightaway is one thing, but pure speed in third gear on a gravel-strewn, downhill, ess turn is quite another.

                        I read it (on the rigs) when it came out.....then my Mum bought it for me as a birthday pressie (she didn't know I'd already read it).
                        "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it," she once said, "unless I'm thirsty."
