At Buffalo Bill's there was all manner of grilled and fried food, and this motorcycling connoisseur had a hard job choosing his burger. At Buffalo Bill's there was all manner of grilled and fried food, and this motorcycling connoisseur had a hard job choosing his burger. I decided to make the meal educational. Many will be wondering about the difference between buffalo and bison. Are they the same animal? the answer is a resounding no! Bison comes with a pickle, lettuce, melted cheese and shoestring fries. With buffalo, you get red onion, no cheese and curly fries. It's good to be able to clear that up. No sooner had the ointment started to work after Mike Hyde's 17,000-kilometre motorcycle circumnavigation of Australia than his mid-life itch returned. this time his goal was 50 states in America in 60 days, and twisting throttle America is the result - classic roadside tales of an ordinary Kiwi bloke doing it alone, on the smell of an oily rag and cholesterol pills.the Land of the Free is also the Land of the Bizarre Roadside Attraction, and, if Bill Bryson was a middle-aged Kiwi biker on a budget, he might have written this book. Come on a road trip with twisting throttle - he's funny, irreverent and definitely not taking himself seriously. thrill to close encounters with American wildlife, join his fantasy ride around Washington with Motorcycle One, share the excitement and wet underwear of out-running Hurricane Ike, and enjoy his unforgettable attempts to understand diner waitresses.Mike Hyde lives in Christchurch. this is his second book about an epic solo motorbike journey. His wife is clearly a wonderful woman.
