Classic TT Racers

At 10 o'clock on the twenty-eighth of May 1907 the first Isle of Man Tourist Trophy motorcycle road race began. The riders pushed off on their 500cc single cylinder bikes and ten laps and 158 miles later, Charlie Collier aboard a Matchless would be declared the victor. This book is a history and celebration of the bikes of those early years of the TT races. It covers the events and personalities that led to the creation of the race and its challenging course; the early success of the British motorcycle manufacturers: Norton, Velocette, AJS and Matchless and their riders. The origins of the Italian Fours: Gilera and MV Agusta Quattro are covered and the influence and reign of the Japanese manufacturers too are covered: Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki. There are also details of the technical developments that enabled the bikes to conquer the mountain course with world-record beating times.

Speed at the TT Races

For over 100 years the world's best motorcycle racers have pitted themselves against the gruelling 37-and-threequarter-mile Isle of Man Mountain Course at the annual event known worldwide simply as 'the TT'. The Tourist Trophy meeting - to give its proper name - represents perhaps the greatest challenge that the sport of motorcycle racing can offer. The top names in road racing - Collier, Wood, Duke, Hailwood, Agostini, Hislop, Jefferies, McGuinness, Hutchinson and the Dunlop dynasty - have all considered the pursuit of a Tourist Trophy to be the ultimate goal. From riding the earliest single-cylinder, belt-driven machines with outputs of under 10bhp, to coping with today's sophisticated four-cylinder machines giving well over 200bhp, generations of riders have risked their lives to satisfy the desire to go faster than the next man and to win a TT. In the process they have lifted lap speeds by almost 100mph. Exactly how that huge increase has been achieved is told within these pages, set against the background of the triumphs and the tragedies of the TT history. A comprehensive story of speed at the TT Races, superbly illustrated with over 200 colour photographs and maps.

Aermacchi

This book is the third in the Redline books Enthusiasts Series. It tells the story of one of Italy's premiere post-war marques. With a history steeped in aviation, including the MC72 World Speed Record holder and World War II fighters, Aermacchi began building motorcycles in 1950. At the 1956 Milan Show, the futuristic Chimera, an ohv horizontal single with enclosed bodywork was launched. Later in the decade the Chimera was 'undressed' to create some of Italy's best sports and racing machines, including the Ala Verde and the Ala d'Oro. In 1960 Harley Davidson bought 50% of Aermacchi, and then in 1978 the Varese factory was sold to Cagiva. A number of Aermacchi personalities have contributed to this book, giving it additional authority.

Neo Tribes

This collection brings together perspectives drawn from a range of international scholars who have conducted research into the applications of neo-tribal theory. The concept of the neo-tribe was first introduced by the French sociologist Michel Mafessoli (1996) to describe new forms of social bonds in the context of late modernity. This book critically explores the concepts that underpin neo-tribal theory, using perspectives from different disciplines, through a series of theoretically informed and empirically rich chapters. This innovative approach draws together a recently emergent body of work in cultural consumption, tourism and recreation studies. In doing so, the book critically progresses the concept of neo-tribe and highlights the strengths, weaknesses and the opportunities for the application of neo-tribal theory in an interdisciplinary way.

Entanglement YA

It is the novella that one can finish reading in 2 hours and may find loveful for a lifetime (the first of three of the series 'Understanding & Endeavour'). So many quotations, songs, novels, movies, and tears after, there is still no definitive answer to the almost perpetual mystery. What is love? Can love be explained by neurotransmitters, their prioritizations, memories, decision trees, and human logic? The answer is for readers to find out, and this book of rarest supply may save them a lot of trouble. It may bring changes (perhaps life-changing) to people who appreciate it. These changes can only be positive, never negative. ** SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ** This book is a jigsaw puzzle in two senses. Love is a solvable problem, and it takes, after reading, at least 5 to 10 hours of research to form a complete picture in mind. Some intelligence and life experience will be required. It may look like fiction of romance, but it is about self-help in disguise (explained partly by science). What makes this novella different from other romances/science fictions is that it is not a product of imagination. This eBook is the young adult version (for age 15 or above, a subset) of the novella Entanglement (second edition). There is no description of anything sexually explicit, consumption of alcohol, and violence in the book. It is the estimate of the author (according to his own experience) that the minimal age should be 15 rather than 12 (the usual definition of young adult is 12 to 18, but it is misleading because adult is the noun, which means 18 or above, young is the adjective; the proper definition should be 18 to 25) because of the need for maturity to understand. Of course, anyone of age 18 or above can opt for this vanilla version and may find the reading experience more pleasant and easier to accept.
