Thumbs up Wales On A Motorbike

Thanks Nik,

Great revue, and I finally have a picture of my bike in 100%..( Ok so it's small 35mm x 22mm ) but it's there in all it's glory on page 8.

The price of the book is correct and there is a cost for postage but for all forum readers there is a discount price of 5 including postage..( It costs me a quid to post it second class under the new postal charges )

John

I'll have one as well John.

There is a calculator here for adding paypal fees, it tells you how much to pay so that the seller gets the right amount,eg, so John gets the 5.00

Sorry folks, no paypal, but It's priced at a fiver so that you can slip a paper one in an envelope addressed to.

John Hopkins
104 commercial street
Tredegar
NP22 3DW

and enclose your full name and address and if you want it signed say who you want it made out to and any special words you want.

due to stock levels I must limit this offer to a maximum of 1000 books per order.

John

It's worth every penny of the 5 folks. John has put a lot of effort into this book and it shows. His words and pictures really do speak volumes about his love for his home and have certainly inspired me to retrace parts of his journey and see more of Wales for myself.

Nice meeting you John, sorry I couldn't stay longer.
Anyway, read the book and it was spot on, nice easy read and some brill shots despite the weather not being on your side.

Look forward to the next one.
Ride safe.

Dusty

John, Am I reading this right (been away too long), that you have made a book of your welsh exploits?

What is the total price for the book. I assume the 5 is postage.

Hi Slob,

No the crack is you send me a five pound note in an envelope with your full name and address and if you want it signed, what or who you want it made out to and I post the book back by second class post. Just under 190 pages, about 175 photos and I have written it slowly for those with reading dificulties. (non bikers).

John
